The Argus Observer reports
16-year-old Andy Stroebel was looking at a handgun around 3:45 p.m. Sunday when it discharged and a bullet struck him in the neck.
What's your opinion? Isn't it hard to believe that anyone with even a minimum of experience with guns could do something like this. Yet it happens every day.As of this morning, Stroebel has undergone a second surgery on his neck.Stroebel and an adult friend went shooting earlier in the day and were back at Stroebel’s house looking at his friends handgun. There were several unloaded guns in the house at the time, and the two had been cleaning them.Stroebel’s friend left the area to get a movie, and the friend had taken the ammunition out of the gun, but at some point Stroebel put the ammunition back in.Stroebel’s mother was in the other room at the time the shot was fired. Stroebel was taken via Air Ambulance to a Boise-area hospital and then was flown to a Portland-area hospital.
Conclusion: Some people are unfit to handle guns safely.
