This is why we need to get as strict as possible with issuing gun licenses. The only way to prevent this kind of stupidity, fatal stupidity, is to prevent guys like this from having a gun in the first place. With higher standards for gun ownership, many of the ones capable of this kind of behaviour would be disqualified for various reasons.A Daytona Beach man was killed today in an apparent gun-cleaning accident, Volusia County deputies said.
According to a sheriff's spokesman, deputies were called to the home of 49-year-old Jeffrey Williams about 5:15 p.m. by his wife. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
Investigators determined that Williams had been cleaning his shotgun in the work area of a pole barn on the couple's property, when he was struck by an accidental discharge.
