South Carolina boy dies after father accidentally shot him

A Thanksgiving hunting trip turned into a tragedy when a South Carolina man accidentally shot and killed his son. Colton Williams, 9, died of a gunshot wound in Orangeburg County. The fourth-grader was out rabbit hunting with his father and a family friend when his dad inadvertently shot him. Colton’s grandfather said his organs have been donated to three children. He was laid to rest on Sunday.

As much as I love hunting, it is prime retard season. You have a bunch of guys who shoot 3 rounds per year to "zero" their 3-9x 30-06s at 50 yards. They know nothing about penetration and ballistics of what they are shooting and have no concerns about shooting at a deer that is skylined, or has an occupied dwelling behind it. The shit that I have heard is amazing. A guy thought zeroing shrunk the grouping of his rifle. One that didn't know anything about scope offset. One that thought 30-30 was ineffective at 100 yards. etc etc

Absolutely horrible. While it is still the fathers fault for this whole thing, it doesn’t erase the fact of how horrible the matter is. I empathize so well when I think about how it would feel having my own child killed as a direct result of my own stupid actions.

Thank you gun lobby for the death of another child. Annual compulsory testing to prove you know how to handle a firearm might have prevented this.
