In yet another episode of guns killing people, a man from Fort Wayne Indiana is dead after his gun discharged in his home. He was not shooting at anything, he was not being careless with his weapon, he was just trying to sell the darn thing when it went off, hitting him in the chest.
Fort Wayne Police responded to the man’s residence and first aid was administered, but it was already too late. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
Police spokesman Chris Felton had this say, a little warning to those who still think guns are not a problem. “Always treat the gun as if it’s loaded. Even if you’re sure it’s unloaded, still treat it as if its loaded. Never point a gun at anything or anyone you’re not willing to destroy. Treat it as loaded all the time.”
Advice I’m sure the gun owner already knew, but, he’s no longer alive.0
