“Intentional Incompetence”

I would like to take this opportunity to point out a great post at Hecate’s Crossroad, which discusses a particularly negligent shooting.  Basically, a husband who thought his gun was empty pointed it at his wife as they “practiced” clearing their house of home invaders, and then pulled the trigger, causing her (completely preventable) death.  Of course, the anti gun crowd sees this as an opportunity to blame guns, rather than a case of two humans failing to follow the rules of gun safety and act like responsible adults.  Xavier also has a great post discussing this incident.
