I feel like a lot of people were gonna come here to say the same thing.

Survival of the fittest.. who don't fucking accidentally shoot themselves in the throat with a gun while taking a "selfie".

EDIT: are/were past tense :P

Killing yourself unintentionally with a firearm really is an act of sheer lack of brainpower. Not only do guns have safeties, there is no requirement to load them, especially while aiming them at yourself while taking pictures.

I take issue with the use of the word accident. It was a negligent discharge. He didn't check the chamber. He put his finger on the trigger. Its gonna take a lot to make me think it just "went off" by itself.

By "father" I mean donate the sperm. Clearly not a lot of parenting going on.

Well just so everyone knows, you are supposed to take a selfie with a phone or camera. If you use a gun you will most likely die.

I wondered why he was using a gun to take a selfie. So is there going to be a warning label on guns now. DO NOT USE TO TAKE SELFIES. INJURY OR DEATH MAY OCCUR.

A metal box, nine square feet of land, roughly a thousand pounds of dirt and flowers delivered to his gravestone for the foreseeable future. Or until his family finds the next best thing to distract themselves with.

Society has decided that adults are children up until age 23 or so, and college is just expensive babysitting.

Unless you commit a crime, in which case you are a full fucking adult at 18, sometimes less.

Oh, and unless we need soldiers, then you're an adult at 18.

The answer to all of your questions is a simple one: he never went to an NRA shooting class.

Which is 100% true, and people LOVE to bash the NRA, but they teach you that guns aren't fucking toys that shouldn't be glamorized.

I'll take Trigger Discipline for 200, Alex.

[–] Transcriber3 3 points 7 points (+10|-3) ago 

Seriously?

Does the gun have bullets in it?, yes or no, if yes pointing it at yourself is a bad idea.

I will undoubtedly have people yelling at me about trigger discipline and bullets might still be in the chamber or something, I say fuck off to those people.

While it may have been a better idea to use a fake plastic gun you absolutely can make sure the gun is not loaded, there's no such thing as Schrodinger's bullets.

For example, take a pistol, is there a bullet in any of the chambers?, if no, is there a bullet in the barrel?, if no the gun is not loaded, while this can be taught in firearms training this kid was stupid, if you are for some reason going to do something like this you make damn sure there are no bullets in chamber or cylinder, no bullet will magically pop into existence after that.

This was a case of hurr durr, i'm gonna take a selfie with a gun, blam!

No, its the guns fault

clearly the gun loaded itself, took itself off safety, and had a faulty firing mechanism http://i.imgur.com/5Nkbpak.jpg

edit: always treat a gun with respect, and it is still always on the handler when things go wrong, except in rare, extreme circumstances, like an over heated weapon causing rounds to fire automatically or a squib load

Not all handguns have safties. Also, in TFA it said he found the gun (presumably outside). People who toss guns are generally criminals ditching them after a crime or before contact with the police. They typically aren't the types to make sure the weapon is unloaded before ditching it.

While it's sad that he died, if you're daft enough to take a selfie with a loaded firearm, I don't think a college education will help you much.
