Honestly, my first time handling a gun was on a farm upstate and I was holding the gun upright fresh out of the cabinet and I must've muzzled my uncle by letting the gun tilt towards him. He and I knew it was unloaded, but he screamed at me so fast I thought I was about to get knocked out, I cramped my hand making sure I didn't do it again.
    It's a reflex. If someone passes me a gun with the action open and they have just checked it, I check to make sure the chamber is empty. It's a reflex.

      The first rule I was taught ages ago was treat every firearm at all times as if it's loaded

                    If they walked out, I doubt they learned anything.

                        BTT just so that EVERYONE sees this thread. Most of these incidents are completely avoidable. The worst line in the article:

                        "Anderson told police that he aimed the gun at Guyette and pulled the trigger without checking to see if it was loaded."

                        No one should ever think that's okay. I think it has to be because the guy knew nothing about guns when he was given one, but maybe Spider can enlighten us.

                          I never saw either one of them at the range. 1000's of people would have given them countless hours of instruction for free. All they had to do was ask.

                              This. You can't teach someone who just did that. That is just inexcusable. Did he not think it was real? He was so sure it was unloaded to do something that taboo in gun safety (but you don't need gun safety to know that's messed up). Does he drink bottles labeled "poison" assuming otherwise? I don't know the real or other circumstances but the only time I hear/see that level of stupid with guns is when drinking or substances are involved, but the police report denies that was involved here.

                              Apparently the kid he shot was his gf''s brother and she was the only witness. Anyway a horrible tragedy.

                              Here's a tv news video on it, can't seem to embed it.
