Man Shoots Daughter While Teaching Gun Safety

A man who was supposedly teaching his two sons about firearms safety allegedly pulled the trigger of his pistol and fired a shot that killed his young daughter. (Source.)

What a shame. I have to wonder if drugs were involved because I find it difficult to believe anyone could be that stupid unless under the influence. I mean that not so much that he may have accidentally and negligently fired the shot but that he allegedly repeatedly exercised extremely poor judgment in handling the pistol leading up to the fatal shot. His actions seemingly paved the way to her death. The nine year old son reportedly said the father had pointed the gun at him and at his brother repeatedly, this allegedly during a lesson about firearms safety. Then he reportedly shot his daughter and claimed he did not know the gun was loaded! It is mind boggling to think someone not under the influence of mind altering drugs was as brainless as to do all that.

My condolences go out to the rest of the family.

Be careful out there,
