Welcome to the FTF.
An ND can happen to the best of us.
Thanks for sharing your story.
Yes they can. That's what irritates me when someone posts that a person has shot himself or someone else after a negligent discharge. You get the ones on calling them a idiot and how it would never happen to them.
I have sympathy for the mother, and the kid, but the father deserves none. There is no excuses for his negligence and he should be prosecuted for manslaughter and jailed.
Don't count on it. He's 44 years old and still this stupid ?? I stand by my previous statement about yanking his carry permit if he has one.
Again, I believe this is a result of lack of training.
Training won't fix stupid. 44 years old and doesn't know dangerous things come out the end of a firearm? Not smart enough to check it or carry it properly. Not smart enough to not point it at someone you love. Sounds like a complete lack of common sense,
