Sailor Sentenced To 10 Years In Negligent Shooting

This is a follow-up to my February 18th post on this story.

The sailor got ten years in prison for killing his girlfriend, also a Navy member. He was playing with the gun, put it up to her head and pulled the trigger, thinking it was empty. Obvious violation of Jeff Cooper's Rule 1 and Rule 2. Also a violation of my own lesser-known rule 1, A gun is not a toy. Don't play with it!
