    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.

      STFU, if you KNEW what went on out here. You’d know that you’d rather be safe than sorry. Being in the streets of Chicago you HAVE to protect yourself. That’s why he had it!
