    Not good. I think you are supposed to unload the gun before cleaning.

    ORLANDO, Fla. A pregnant woman and her unborn child have died in central Florida after being accidentally shot by the woman's husband, authorities said.

    Yailen Abreu, 23, and the fetus died Tuesday at Orlando Regional Medical Center.

    Orange County sheriff's officials said Abreu was hit in the stomach while her husband was cleaning his gun late Monday at their Orlando-area home. She was six months pregnant.

    The bullet struck 39-year-old Enio Abreu in the hand before hitting in his wife, authorities said.

  3. This is still being investigated by police, and they have not determined whether this was accidental

    Don't you mean negligent? Whether it was negligent or not, the fact remains that this woman and the unborn child are dead because of what this man did. Even if it was negligent, that should not make his punishment any less severe.

    I remember back when I was a child the adults said that my relative "accidently" shot himself while "cleaning his gun". He happened to be a police officer. As I grew up I learned that this was a euphamism for "he shot himself in the head." I know another common phrase among LEO was "He ate his gun".

    Funny how the bullet hit the lady in the stomach where the fetus was. I'm sure the investigation will determine that the guy MURDERED his wife and tried to make it look like an "accident" by shooting through his own hand.

    Another fine job of the media to get the story into the headlines multiple times.

    Very unfortunate story. While the circumstances surrounding this incident are still being investigated, I can't help but mention that this is just the kind of story anti-gunners and the liberal media spotlight to show that ordinary people can't be trusted with guns.

    This is very unfortunate. I can not understand why people can't remember to unload their gun before cleaning it.

    I used the term that the police and media are using. What I really meant is that I do not believe it was accidental or negligent.

    And that is exactly how they portrayed this on the evening news. Concerned neighbor states, "This is what happens when people are allowed to have guns in their homes."

    This is just regurgitated from what this neighbor has been fed by the media to begin with. Ordinary people cannot be trusted with guns. They are SO dangerous, you just never know when one is going to "go off" by itself! On a side note, the crooks in the area now know whose house is safe to hit . . .

    +1 Mom! Nothing like telling everyone and their brother I have no way to defend myself. Come take all my stuff.
