Russian Roulette Death in CA - No Charges

Local news reports

A man shot and killed himself early Wednesday during what police suspect may have been a game of Russian roulette. 

The man, who was not identified pending notification of next of kin,, died shortly after 7 a.m. at Loma Linda University Medical Center, said San Bernardino police Lt. Paul Williams. 

"Right now it's an accidental death," Williams said. 

Detectives are investigating the possibility that the victim and at least one other person were playing Russian roulette with a loaded revolver. It is unknown how many times the gun was passed around before the round was fired, Williams said. 

Police recovered the gun at the scene.
Well, here's two or three more lawful gun owners who have proven to be unfit to own guns. One is dead, but the others will just go one with their reckless behavior until someone else gets killed.

I'm making an assumption that the guys who play Russian roulette are drinking and doing other irresponsible behavior that makes them a danger to themselves and others.

What do you think?  Please leave a comment.


  1. Darwinism at it's finest!

  2. Why do you insist on calling these people lawful gun owners? You don't know that. What we do know is that they were in the Brady-scorecard gold-star state of California. The fact is that stupid people will do stupid things, no matter how many laws get passed. Your proposals would only stop good citizens from enjoying their rights.

    1. When people are not lawful gun owners one of the charges is "felon in possession of a gun" or something like that. When that charge is not mentioned, we can assume he was lawful, but as I keep pointing out, "lawful gun owner" doesn't mean shit when it comes to responsibility and safety. That's because the bar to be a lawful gun owner is too low.

    2. No, you can't logically assume that. Prosecutors don't file charges for every crime. They let some things slide because they simply don't have time to go after every bad thing done. The gun here may have belonged to the deceased.

      The bar to owning a gun? What about the bar to speaking freely? What about the bar to going to a house of worship? Rights are rights. The thing that you repeatedly fail to grasp is that good citizens don't have to justify their desire to exercise their rights. The government has to show an urgent need whenever it wants to take away rights.
