A few years ago in Oklahoma a loaded shotgun was leaned up against a ATV side by side. The side by side was bumped and the shotgun fell and fired hitting a teenager at very close range and killing him. The boy killed was the grandson of a very good friend of mine. Grampa has today not gotten over losing his grandson.
Interesting as my first thought was how would a gun leaned against a car fire from tipping over?? Shotguns aren’t tested to be drop safe like pistols?? I actually don’t know.While I don't doubt that someone was shot the chain of events leading up to it sounds like a cover up to protect someone. Angle of entry on the wound would be very revealing.
I'm not sure I can agree with you on this one. You can teach proper safety practices every day, but once you entrust an individual to handle a gun on their own without direct supervision, their choices and actions are theirs.If story is accurate then the instructor(s) failed in teaching proper safety procedures.
