    Hard to believe ...a Texan that doesn't know about guns????

    Surely a Darwin Award Nominee if not for his two kids...

    • Playing with a gun he found
    • not knowing if it was loaded
    • pointing it at yourself

    "While he was trying to take a pic of himself with the weapon... "

    People are doing dangerous things while taking selfies. This is but one example. Vanity rules.

    Speaking of selfies...I did not know until early April what a selfie-stick was.

    Selfies indicate selfishness --egotism. People are taking them at the most awkward moments. I wouln't be surprised if a dying person has taken a selfie.

    If the technology was available in the past, can you imagine various figures of history taking selfies? The figures from history I respect probably would resist the idea.

    But getting back to the story. Yes, it is tragic. It was completely avoidable, but tragic. And at 19 he already had kids!
