4 friends playing with a gun when it accidentally just fired, by it self, while it pointed itself at the head or heart of one of the young men.

Occurred at 1:15 pm in a vacant house while they were being schooled remotely on zoom.

Would this be a Covid death?

Yes, I already know the answer, but got to ask anyway, why is firearm safety not taught in schools? Say junior high?

Most responsible parents start it in elementary school... that would be a good 1st lesson, with some reinforcement in Jr. high and high school.

Probably not in Texas, unless they weren't wearing a mask. :roll:

I am always amazed at how these guns decide to fire just at the point that they have pointed themselves at a head or a heart.

There are so many other locations they could have fired themselves, but they always chose to “go off” just in the worst possible direction.

Shooter leaves scene with gun.
