Man charged after girl accidentally shot at party

H/T: Houston Chronicle

Another idiot with a gun.

Everyone please stand. Place your right hand over your heart. Repeat after me.

The Four Rules
(Thanks to Xavier)

  1. All firearms are always loaded
  2. Never let the muzzle of a firearm point at anything you are not willing to destroy
  3. Keep your finger off the trigger until you are ready to shoot
  4. Be sure of your target and what lies beyond it
Read all of the short article. Here, INMNSHO, are the essential points quoted from the Chron:

  1. Believing the gun to be unloaded, Odom placed it against the back of Aubrecht's head and pulled the trigger, investigators said.
  2. She died at the scene.
  3. Investigators found evidence of drug and alcohol use during a search of the home, but did not say whether they believe it played a part in the shooting.
  4. “There were no arguments and no fights prior to the incident,” said homicide Sgt. R.D. Chandler.
  5. Odom was arrested and charged with manslaughter. He remains in the Harris County Jail with bail set at $30,000.

Unlike the chronically gun-illiterate Chronicle, I would not title this article as " . . . accidentally shot . . . ". It was at best negligent. Go back and read Rule #1 if you don't agree. Oh, and if that doesn't convince you, try Rules #2 and #3.

Frankly, I'd push for murder. Odom better hope for the needle (lethal injection is the current method of choice in Texas) or life in prison without hope of parol. Her parents just might want to have a nice "chat" with him. They may not act as quickly as Odom did.

God Bless Ya'll !
