This recent story is so sad, yet sickening...

‘The gun didn’t kill my boy — I did’: Father accidentally shoots son during target practice

Quote
Fourteen-year-old Stephen Brumby was quietly waiting for his turn to shoot.

His father, William C. Brumby, was up first, stepping into the last shooting lane at High Noon Gun Range, aiming a Ruger SR22 and squeezing the trigger, according to the Tampa Bay Times.

A hot shell casing hit the range wall and flew into the elder Brumby’s shirt.

He instinctively reached around with his right hand — which was still holding the .22 semiautomatic handgun, police said.

While trying to fish out the shell casing, he fired again, this time accidentally.

“Dad, Stephen’s been shot,” his other son shouted, according to the newspaper.

Brumby later told the Tampa Bay Times that the bullet struck his 14-year-old son’s jugular vein during the family’s target-shooting practice Sunday afternoon.

The teen was taken to Sarasota Memorial Hospital, where he died, authorities said.

But wait, there's more. They set up a Go Fund Me campaign to help with the burial. WTF!!!!
