I would guess everyone reading SGN has at one time or another done something stupid with a gun. If you were lucky, you got away with it and learned a valuable lesson. The stupidity level goes up exponentially when multiple teenaged boys are involved, but in past years, parents only had to worry about interactions with the local boneheads.
Now, thanks to the Internet, a bad influence can come from anywhere.
A case in point happened in Philadephia, where an 18-year-old was apparently having a heated exchange with someone on Skype or a similar video service. Apparently responding to some challenge to his manhood, he grabbed what he thought was an unloaded pistol, pointed it at his head and pulled the trigger. Predictably, the gun was loaded and the results were exactly what you’d expect.
There are many morals one can draw relative to proper gun storage and handling, the content of rap videos, etc. But it mainly points out there is almost nothing dumber than a teenage boy, and I say that having been one. About all the rest of us can do understand that and secure guns and ammunition accordingly.
