I have yet to see an "automobile accidentally cross the center line" because of a drunk driver. Well, this is just as stupid. I feel bad for these kids. I am sure their intent was not malicious, just mischevious. Horrible lesson to learn.

I wander of their fathers ever sat them down and taught them about gun safety and responsibility. I wander if their fathers ever took them to a range and demonstrated a level of trust to their young boys.

I wonder if their fathers were ever around at all.

Yeah well, it is not the drunks 'intent' to 'accidentally cross the centerline'. But we all know that does not make it the car's fault, or the beer's fault. Removing either would have prevented the accident but nothing about their part in it was accidental. Same with this gun. Nothing about the function of that gun was accidental. Even the pulling the trigger was probably intentional. Did the shooter 'accidental' not unload it? No, that was not an 'accident' either. They stupidly decided not to unload it or check that it was unloaded before they stupidly decided the try out the trigger. The only part that I would call 'accidental' is the direction it was pointed in and even that SHOULD have been deliberate.

I believe Nichole and Teaira are girls names. Not that it matters. I know I taught my girls, now 30 and 25, safe gun handling. Both of 'em favored handguns too. BTW, the older one now has a JD (and a new baby!) the other is a PhD candidate.
