A 10-year-old North Carolina boy was shot and killed on Sunday evening when his father’s shotgun discharged as he sat in his living room cleaning the weapon.

The child, Christopher Stanlane, Jr., was hit by the round squarely in the head and killed instantly, police told a reporter for WPDE-TV.

“He was pretty careful with [the gun],” the boy’s uncle, Robert Simmons, said in a report aired Monday night. “I don’t think he meant to hold it in that direction, but the way he was cleaning it, I guess he didn’t pay no attention to it and held it that way. There must have been a bullet lodged in the chamber and it fired.”

Is it normal to "clean a gun" with it loaded? Do people really forget a gun is loaded and then attempt to clean it?

That's just a person being retarded and not knowing rules about how to properly operate a fire arm

Sounds legit

Disregard all rules of common sense and safety.

How do you forget, a gun is loaded? It takes like 5 seconds to find out, it is in your hand, FIND OUT!

Horrible, horrible thing...

...shotguns don't use bullets and I've never seen on that it wasn't really obvious whether or not it was loaded.

As a gun owner that was taught how to use a weapon at a young age by his dad, the Father in this incident unfortunately as it may be was fully responsible for his sons death. I was taught at a young age that the first thing you do is make sure the gun is unloaded, one of my ways to make sure I do this is every time I'm about to go hunting I only chamber a round right as I'm going in the woods and I unload the gun completely as soon as I exit.

Another thing any good gun owner should know is that you never point any gun at anything you don't intend to kill.

now about the part of this story I do not get is that how was he cleaning the gun with a round chambered? cleaning a gun most of the time usually involves cleaning the barrel first which is impossible if a round in chambered.

can tell you right now he wasn't, the fact that this happened means he broke 2 major rules about using a gun before it even went off.

Do you consider yourself a responsible driver?

Ever sped?
Ever had a beer too many then drove?
Ever roll stopped a stop sign?
Ever not wear a seatbelt?

Surely you cannot be considered a responsible driver if you've ever done any of those...oh you can
