    "Teen" dies after shooting himself while taking "selfie" with gun that he "found"...

    Teenager dies after accidentally shooting himself while taking selfies with a loaded gun - Mirror Online

    Seems that young "Deleon Alonso Smith, 19, died of a single gunshot wound to the throat after accidentally pulling the trigger while posing with his cousin. Smith's cousin told police the pair had found the weapon earlier that day."

    Rest in Peace Deleon, Rest in Peace...

    Slippy's advice to the youngsters, do not take a "selfie" with a loaded, newly "found" (stolen) firearm then pull the trigger while the firearm is aimed at your head.

    Please follow Firearm Safety Rules at all times;

    RULE 1
    ALL GUNS ARE ALWAYS LOADED
    The only exception to this occurs when one has a weapon in his hands and he has personally unloaded it for checking. As soon as he puts it down, Rule 1 applies again.

    RULE 2
    NEVER LET THE MUZZLE COVER ANYTHING YOU ARE NOT PREPARED TO DESTROY
    You may not wish to destroy it, but you must be clear in your mind that you are quite ready to if you let that muzzle cover the target. To allow a firearm to point at another human being is a deadly threat, and should always be treated as such.

    RULE 3
    KEEP YOUR FINGER OFF THE TRIGGER TIL YOUR SIGHTS ARE ON THE TARGET
    This we call the Golden Rule because its violation is responsible for about 80 percent of the firearms disasters we read about.

    RULE 4
    BE SURE OF YOUR TARGET
    You never shoot at anything until you have positively identified it. You never fire at a shadow, or a sound, or a suspected presence. You shoot only when you know absolutely what you are shooting at and what is beyond it.

    This is Nature's way of refining and cleansing defects, out of society. Needs to happen before they breed, though.

    I find this sad, I have a 19 yr. old daughter, she has been through firearm training courses. If this person would have had even the minimal amount of training as in Slippy's post, this young adults parents would not be crying their eyes out now. Can you imagine his buddy almost see his friend blow his brains out! They talk all about how guns are bad, but all the see on TV is the glorification of violence and none of the real world aftermath. jmo.

    I am with you 1skrewloose. This is sad. Those making smart ass comments, you haven't done something stupid when you were a teenager? I know I have done plenty of stuff that I could have been killed over when I was young. That just shows you to start your kids young on firearms training among other things.

    Good point MtlGen,

    Teaching youngsters about firearm safety is extremely important even if your family does not own guns. Make sure they understand what to do in case they find themselves in a situation where somebody "finds" a gun and starts to play with it. "Negligent Discharges" are not "Accidents". Keep your finger off the trigger and don't play with a firearm. Follow the safety rules and accidents won't happen.

    I did lots of stupid stuff when I was a teenager. None of it involved pointing guns at myself.

    You can't fix stupid, but sometimes stupid fixes itself. It was probably better this way, better than them shooting someone else.

    "It was better this way" Yeah, a dumbass kid lost his life. That was better. If it was your kid or grandkid you wouldn't saying this.
