    Girl, 13, slain by brothers AK-47

    Dumb ass kid. Classic example of an untrained gun owner. Who points a weapon towards another individual and pulls the trigger? Its right at the top of the list of training.

    Interesting how the read goes "Slain by brothers AK 47" kind of like the toddler that was run over by an SUV. It is a miracle that inanimate objects now can kill us. It is the rise of the machines. I am waiting for Arnold to be back.

    Other than that these are lessons for every dumbass kid that wants a gun...make them read every article available about how little idiots like themselves just know enough to get someone killed. That is how I taught my daughter by the way. She did not need a lot of my lectures...she knows what happens when you pull the trigger. Perhaps parents need to whack them over the head with a butt stock once in a while so they can get the message that if you are not careful you can really hurt someone with a gun...yeah...how about a good pistol whippin every so often so they understand guns can hurt you. I don't know if I want to feel bad for the kid on the trigger or just go beat his ass black and blue. No...I don't need anger management...I need a drink!

    So much gross negligence here. It should make any conscientious firearm owner furious. This kid obviously was never properly taught or supervised. As to the question of how quickly this will be used as a reason to eliminate or restrict civilian access to firearms, the answer is immediately.

    Teen killed on birthday after step-brother's AK-47 goes off | ksdk.com
    If you have a problem finding the article here it is.

    JOHNSON COUNTY, Texas (Newser) - Another tragic accidental shooting, this one in Texas: Emilee Bates was accidentally killed by her step-brother on her 13th birthday Tuesday.

    Police say Austin McCord, 19, was clearing his AK-47 at the time. He ejected two dummy rounds that were above the loaded magazine, then pulled the trigger in what he believed was a safe move, NBC 5 reports.

    The sheriff explains that "once you've emptied the weapon, it's always safer to get the pressure off of the trigger, and that's what he thought he was doing."

    But McCord forgot about the loaded magazine, and the gun went off, shooting Emilee in the stomach.

    "He believed he was making the weapon safe by pulling the trigger to drop the bolt on an empty chamber," the sheriff's office said in a statement obtained by the Fort Worth Star-Telegram.

    Police were called to the home around 8:30 p.m., where the step-siblings were alone; Emilee had been studying. The seventh-grader died in a Fort Worth hospital around 10 p.m.

    The case is considered an accident, and police say no charges will be filed.

    I am having a real problem with this being classed an accident.

    He racked the bolt twice to eject the dummy rounds. Did he not think to remove the loaded mag first and just thumb out the rounds?
    The moron actually placed a live round in the chamber while attempting to render the weapon "safe" by racking out the dummy rounds...total ND but with horrific end result. Multiple failures of the four basic gun rules!

    No charges filed? Isn't negligent homicide enough to charge the stupid brother?

    I would think it was. His action harms us all, i know were not getting shot but it's harmful to safe careful shooters.

    I bought a used 22lr semi auto tube fed rifle. It was an older model. I got rid of it because a few times I had thought I emptied the tube and ejected the chambered round, in that order, only to find out one or two rounds remained in the receiver. I almost shot my toe off once because I released the pressure on the trigger after I "emptied" the rifle of ammunition. I explained the entire problem to the friend I sold it to so he would be aware. Sometimes, even when you think the gun is unloaded, it may still be loaded. I am not sure if you can be too cautious. But this kid did not even drop the magazine. Whenever I safe a gun, the very first thing I do is remove the magazine and then rack the slide or charging handle. Then I do it again and look into the chamber. If it is one of my revolvers i pop the cylinder twice and i will even look into the chamber of the revolver ith the cylinder popped open. This has to be a contious effort on my part in order to feel secure. If I find myself simply going through the motions without giving any thought to what I am doing I stop catch my breath and start over.

    I'm sorry, I have to unequivocally disagree with what you just said. Are there firearms that are more difficult to tell if they are loaded or not, yes. But it is the firearm owner's responsibility to know how each and every firearm operates BEFORE ever loading a round through. You mention you almost took off a toe. Seriously? Why did you not know how to visual and/or manually check to see if your firearm had a round in it. This is why there are no accidental discharges... only negligent ones. Remember rule #1, all firearms are always loaded. This is a state of mind. ... also #2, don't point at or sweep over anything you do not wish to be destroyed. Apparently you don't like your toes too much. #3, keep your finger off the trigger until you are on target and made the conscious decision to shoot, and #4 be aware of your target, what is in front and what is beyond.

    People who do not follow each of the four rules of safe firearm handling are doomed to eventually have a problem.

    I have put 10's of thousands of rounds through my firearms... I have never had the "near misses" and "oops" moments I hear all the time on these forums. Why? I simply follow those 4 rules. They're very easy to follow, but some are too lazy to do so.
