Here come all the anti gun people. I have a few guns and they never went off by accident. Ask Ice T if he's going to give up his guns. He's pro 2nd amendment.

Unless it was a hairline trigger IMPOSSIBLE That it was a ACCIDENT. I'VE SHOT MANY A FIREARM. Handled them loaded and unloaded. Hairline as well. Never in all the years have I never pulled the trigger on accident alone or with others around. Point blank!

How do you "accidently" kill another person with a gun. Don't you have to be pointing the gun at them; Don't you have to have your hand on the trigger? If you point a gun at another person, loaded or not, and the gun goes off, you are guilty of shooting that person. Every person in the world knows you NEVER point a gun at somebody you do not intend to shiit and you assume EVERY gun is loaded.
