    he did something stupid, and an innocent person paid for that mistake with their life.

    so the answer is not to say "shit happens" when stupidity kills somebody. its to say "this is deadly serious. mistakes however small or innocent can kill somebody. maybe our policies should reflect that."

    •  our policies do, sometimes, stupid will out (6+ / 0-)

      unfortunately you can not completely legislate away stupidity and sad as this is, compared to other causes of accidental death, firearms are actually way down the list, esp in children.....

      It's just like everything else, we live in a world where we hear about everyones problems immediately instead of just our own small town...

      This explains the common misperception that violent crime is through the roof when the stats show the exact opposite.....
