Stop posting this cherry picked garbage. This is a tech site not a Tabloid.

Somebody is going to cry gun control. This has nothing to do with that, only firearm education.

I wouldn't mind basic firearm education being required learning in schools. If everybody knew the 10 rules of safe gun handling (http://nssf.org/safety/basics/) less tragic crap like this would happen.

If Ortiz took a photo pointing a gun to himself, then he saw it coming. I won't say it was well deserved but it was far from an accident.

The issue here is gun safety. Why the hell was it loaded. Did he check the breach. I mean how can you fake that. Duh I was posing and my gun went off. Its really simple you don't ever put your finger or anything else near that trigger unless you want to hear a really loud noise.

People using a gun for protecting themselves from a violent criminal does not get any media attention but these tragic accidents sure do. Unfortunately people will do stupid things, gun safety education is the only way to reduce accidents.

You may want to check on that basic concept of physical presence/non-presence. I can pretty much guarantee that if there was no gun there, education or not, no one would have been shot.

This is not technology news. Nobody comes here to read about stuff like this. It's in the Software section? Why? Because they were taking Facebook photos? Really?

Please stop posting articles like this.

Rule #1 of gun safety (really the only one that needs to be observed) is never point it at something you don't want to shoot, regardless of ANYTHING even the presence of bullets.
