    And the girlfriend and the kids will now become outspoken advocates of gun control legislation after experiencing a horrible tragedy that wouldn't have happened if guns wouldn't have been in the home.

    In reality, she hooked herself up with a drunk loser moron who had no business owning or handling a firearm in the first place. Again, not the gun's fault. Just a blatant reminder of the stupidity of some people. At least he didn't get in his car and start driving, probably would have killed more than himself.

    Sad thing is if you read he whole article there are others who have done the same thing.....

    What is the first rule of guns???? Make sure it is EMPTY!!!! And not by putting it to your head and pulling the trigger...

    My first rule is treat every gun as if it were actually loaded until I have personally checked to make sure it isn't.

    Leave it to Huff compost to try to paint gunowners as nuts and things like this are the rule rather than the exception. They dutifully gave three more examples of idiots who shouldn't have been handling a gun in the first place.

    I think these ex-braniacs made gun owners look bad. The Huff just reminded us of what happens when you get / act stupid.

    "...placed handguns to head and pulled triggers to show they were safe when empty. The third gun fired. He was pronounced dead at the scene."

    Silly drunk idiot.

    I wonder. Would explaining the morons actions as an accident have an advantage over a drunkin suicide? And how would an Insurance co look at this?

    But hey if this didn't happen so often I would give him my vote for a Darwin Award. But its so common from movie actors to drunk morons.

    I'v heard of a guy shooting himself in the head with a blank and killing himself. He thought blanks were harmless.

    based on the yahoos i see at the range all the time, i'm suprised it doesn't happen more often.

    sad to say, but a good percentage of gun owners are not the brightest bulbs.
