A friend of mine has a little brother who was is interested in shooting so he was brought along for enjoyment and learning… Little Brother is not so Little. He’s pretty much a grown adult. He just didn’t learn anything and almost killed someone because of it. This wasn’t an Accident. This was his Negligence. Pure negligence and it almost killed my friend.
He was informed that he needed to get some formal and professional training. He refused. He doesn’t need it.
This was a couple years ago. Recently the same thing happened. Little Brother “Had an Accident” again… and again, almost killed someone.
An “Accident” is when a Child wets the bed. When a gun goes off unintentionally, that’s a Negligent Discharge which is a result of Negligence. So now we have a Strike Two. We have a situation where once again Negligence – his negligence almost took a life. But it wasn’t his fault, it was just an accident, and again he refuses to accept that he needs formal training. When you almost kill people TWICE because of the same thing – this takes a step beyond negligence. This is Willful Disregard for the Safety and Lives of Others. This makes one a Dangerous Jackass. And to refuse to accept responsibility – I’m sorry… Your Done. You should not have any firearms. You are an ignorant and arrogant child that shouldn’t even be allowed to handle guns under Adult Supervision. I’d even say that you shouldn’t even be allowed in a Training Class – unless you are fully accepting that YOU are the problem. No – don’t blame the gun. The gun didn’t Malf. If you were squared away and followed the Gun Safety Rules – Malf or not – you wouldn’t have almost killed a guy – again.
Some people shouldn’t have guns.
