Well, sorry you feel that way Danno. Any idot who gets drunk and starts randomly shooting guns isn't going to get an iota of sympathy from me, because that's the epitome of stupid...not "ignorant", but full blown "stupid".

Is it unfortunate? Absolutely. Did he "deserve" it? Maybe not. He wasn't trying to hurt anybody far as we know. Does it "serve him right"? Maybe.

We can play Roger Goodell and turn this into semantics I guess. I'm not interested, but the only thing I feel about this story is sad. I am sad that people can be THAT stupid. Amazingly, many survive...

If you start firing a gun, while drunk, around other people that might get injured, I will never feel sorry for you if you end up getting yourself killed but kinda be glad that it was you and not somebody else,

This just absolutely hurts my heart that anyone can feel this way about a teenager goofing off and getting killed. You and Crusader's comments are so far off of how I view things that I just don't know what to say.

Stupid is as stupid does Danno. I know some teenagers, "goofing around" as you call it, who stood on the opposite side of the road of my grandfather's business. They had a .22 rifle and took shots at gas tanks, 4 of them, 87, 89, 91, and diesel, used to store gas purchased from Conoco and distributed to local stations, in an attempt to blow them up. "Goofing off..."

At 17 if you don't know any more about the potential consequences of your actions than to fire a loaded weapon randomly then, what, I'm supposed to feel sorry for you?

In a way I do. It's sad the kid is dead. But you know, at 7 years old I fired my BB gun at a wooden door and the BB bounced back and hit me squarely between the eyes. I was seven, and by 17 I knew better, and would have known better without the lesson 10 years earlier.

Guns aren't toys. They are to be taken VERY seriously. I feel strongly about that. If you're 17 and you haven't realized that then I'm not sure what to say. It's not ignorance by definition. It's stupid...by definition.

"Goofing off" is sure as hell not an excuse for doing something dangerous. What if his girlfriend was the one that died? What if he had killed someone other than his own dumb ass? What then? Do we give him a pass because he was "goofing off" as teenagers do? What if he were 20 and not 17? Does he still get the "goofing off" pass? Bull ****.
