Teen accidentally shoots himself live on instagram

13 year old boy was live streaming while showing off a semi-automatic pistol he had acquired from a friend. While inserting the mag, inadvertently pulled the trigger and shot himself.

I guess we can never have too many safety reminders like this.

I cant help thinking that while sad for his family, this outcome is better than if he had accidentally or intentionally killed someone else.

What has someone said on MDS "Do stupid things, win stupid prizes". Family without a son all to get a few "likes". Prosecute the friend who got the weapon. Prayers to the family.

They really need to stop handing out HQLs to 13 year olds.

whether guns, motorcycles, chain saws, etc, you have to respect dangerous tools and machinery. an instant of bravado or carelessness or just stupidity and things can change quickly. sad for the family.

Jeff Coopers rules need to be drilled in to any kid where a gun is in the house, as an adjunct to don't touch it.

He got the gun from a friend.
This is not an accident due to a legal unsecured gun in a home.

Ban Instagram. If he wasn't on it, this would have never happened.

Hard to invoke gun safety for guns i the house when the parents aren't even aware of the gun being in the house.

IDK maybe his 40 friends who watched online will learn a valuable lesson.
