    "He died doin' what he loved."

    "It's the unloaded gun that kills."

    "Freedom ain't free."

    "Please donate to our funeral fund."

    Blah, blah, blah.

    Yadda, yadda, yadda.

    "shall not be abridged, bitches."
    The best statement I've seen from this latest carnage came from a student who lived through it -

    "My generation will not allow this to continue!"

    Well-regulated militias don't shoot country singers. (Although... nah, never mind.)

    What are you doing about it?

    One of the most enduring qualities of an old wooden boat is the smell it imparts to your clothing.

    Up-and-coming country singer Justin Carter has died after a gun accidentally fired while he was filming a music video. He was 35.

    Carter's mother, Cindy McClellan, told Fox News her son was filming a music video in Houston, Texas, on Saturday when a gun in his pocket "went off and caught my son in the corner of his eye."

    Which genius thought it would be a good idea to use a loaded gun as a prop?

    Have you ever listened to country music. Such “genius” is rampant.

    was it actually a prop? that seems unclear, he was carrying it in his picket when it discharges and the projectile entered his left eye
    Simpler is better, except when complicated looks really cool.

    One story said he was in his apartment, another said he was shooting a video. Was he shooting the video in his apartment?

    How the hell do you carry a gun in your pocket and have it aimed towards your eye??

    How many of his friends and family would have said he was a responsible gun owner, until yesterday?

    Terry Kath shed his mortal coil in a very similar manner I think.

    [QUOTE]“Justin always wanted to reach the top,” read a statement posted on the singer’s official Facebook page. “It’s unfortunate it has to be this way, but Justin’s name is worldwide now & his music.”/QUOTE]

    It's all okay now, he's famous.

    Good grief
    "It’s unfortunate it has to be this way"

    No, it didn't 'have to be'.
