  1. Father accidentally shoots dead son, 7

    A man's handgun went off while he was holding it as he got into his truck in the parking lot of a western Pennsylvania gun store Saturday and the shot killed his 7-year-old son, authorities said.
    Joseph V. Loughrey, 44, was getting into the truck when the 9 mm handgun discharged, wounding the boy, Craig Allen Loughrey, in the chest, according to state police.

  3. This guy did not have the proper training to carry a loaded fire arm into a vehicle with a child on board. This guy will have to live with that image burned into his mind and have to go on with his horrible life.

    He violated three of the rules. He paid a really big price for his negligence.

  5. Violated Rules #1 #2 and #3. He was fully responsible for the result of his actions IMHO..

    Any society that would give up a little liberty to gain a little security will deserve neither and lose both.

    Guns don't "go off" by themselves. The man fired the gun! Inadvertently I'm sure, but he did fire the gun.
    Any one of several safety rules would have prevented this. He violated them all. The one rule that reminds me of is.......YOU CAN'T FIX STUPID!

    Very sad and tragic indeed.
    If it doesn't fit, FORCE it! If it breaks then it needed to be replaced anyway.

    What I am going to say I planned on saying outright but since I saw your post I must elaborate a bit.
    This is a sad tragedy. The tragic part as everyone here knows it was avoidable by the four basic gun handling rules.
    Having said that I now ask you tattedupboy, and anyone else, would you have had the same reaction to the parents that accidentally back their car out of their driveway running over their own kids or neighbor kids. Or the parents that let their teenage girls light some candles during a pajama party and went to bed without making sure the candles were out and end up losing 3 of her children? I can go on because there are many such tragic events happening on a regular basis.
    This gun negligence hits all of us hard here just because we know it will be used as an excuse for more gun control.
    So if you are particularly reactionary to this as will all the antis out there, just point out this is absolutely no different then the other type of tragedies I mentioned and point that out with determination. Again, these could all have been avoided.
    Being imperfect I just hope that we all stay vigilant and pay attention to the "rules". I will also take a little luck and any blessings that I can.
