Commentary on Accidental Shooting in Crown Colony in Lufkin

When it comes to gun safety, anyone dealing with a firearm should be well aware of the rules.

  • Do not point the fire arm at anything you don't intend to destroy.
  • Know what your target is and what's between you and the target as well as what's beyond it.
  • Treat all firearms as though they are loaded.
  • Keep your finger off the trigger until absolutely ready to fire.

Generally speaking, someone following these simple but crucial rules isn't going to accidentally discharge a gun, let alone shoot someone. Could this be some one in a million defect the owner had no idea about? Sure, though it's highly unlikely. It's more likely mistakes were made, and there may need to be appropriate consequences to ensure those mistakes don't happen again.
