Try reading the story. He thought he put 4 rds in the rifle. Then thought he had used two round while in the Blind. At the truck he kicked two rounds out of the rifle then pulled the trigger to drop the hammer. The rifle was laying on a seat at the time. His daughter on the other side of the truck was getting in. As the DUMB A** had not cleared the chamber or cycled the action enough times to make sure the chamber would be empty when he pulled the trigger the rifle discharged hitting his daughter.Man, this nearly sends me into an emotional breakdown -
I simply CANNOT get over wondering how this could have happened - I mean was she so far away from her father he mistook her for whatever he was hunting (the game was not mentioned) or total negligence with gun handling up close.
The guy interviewed at 1.20 said, 'Is somethin' you don' want to hear, but it is reality' was NOT what I considered to be a very 'thoughtful' remark. He made it sound like it was something 'commonplace' to happen.
I have no idea what a hunting 'lease' is but I do have some knowledge of hunting in states with little public land and from what I ascertain these hunting areas are tight-knit and not particularly far from one another.
