Father kills 10-year-old son while cleaning gun


Robeson County deputies say 34-year-old Christopher Stanlane was on the couch in his Fairmont home wiping down the gun around 4 p.m. Sunday when it fired.

Investigators say the boy was sitting in front of his father watching television and was struck in the head. Paramedic declared him dead at the home.

No charges have been filed, and deputies are still investigating the shooting.

why in the world was he cleaning a loaded gun? Why was the gun pointed towards anyone? This was one dumb gun owner.

Even if unloaded you treat it as loaded. Never point the barrel at anyone. Poor guy has to live with this.

Um don't you unload a weapon BEFORE you clean it?

When "it fired"?

It just happened to be aimed at the child? And the trigger just went off on its own?

cut it out!

Unless it was intentional, I can't imagine trying to recover from a true accident. I don't think I ever could.

Good question. I'd like to know !
Some people are too stupid to own guns or to be parents,in my opinion.

Do guns fire without the trigger being pulled?

What the freaking FUCK. Even if it was an accidental death the father should be charged with stupidity. You dont clean a gun while its loaded EVER. Its common freaking sense

Even if its not, you treat all guns as if they are loaded.
