    Bought my first shotgun when I was 16. Couldn't clean it when it was loaded either.

    As you know, that's usually a euphemism for suicide, without saying suicide for the benefit of the family.

    I don't know if they are not wanting to say suicide in this case because the man was a pastor, or it this gentleman was so foolish as to point a gun at himself and pull the trigger without checking to see if it was loaded.

    In any case, it is tragic.
