    There is no such thing as an accidental gunshot. Period.

    Gun safety principles are kindergarten-simple, and it takes more than 2 violations to commit a failure.

    What was a 17 year old kid doing in possession of a handgun in the first place? Where the hell were the child's parents???? Gun control laws? They weren't even necessary here. Morals should have been first in this situation.
