If anyone needed to understand WHY we learn gun safety, this is the case.
Why is it that teens have to do idiotic stuff like this? Is it that they’re uneducated and trying too hard to be badass?
Are things like climbing trees and jumping off roofs not fun enough?
Those options sound a heck of a lot better than what this kid did.
A 13-year-old accidentally shot and killed himself on Instagram Live after the gun he was posing with went off.
Malachi Hemphill of Forest Park, Georgia, had taken the trash out on Monday night and returned to his room when his mother heard a loud ‘boom’.
Shaniqua Stephens and her daughter kicked in the teen’s door and found him laying in a pool of blood, WXIA reported.
…Her daughter noticed Malachi’s phone was still on, and Stephens found it was still streaming through Instagram Live.
The teen was rushed to Grady Hospital in Atlanta, where he died.
…According to Stephens, someone told her son to put a clip in the gun when it went off. —DailyMail
The whole situation could have easily been avoided had the teen knew proper use of a handgun.
Maybe High Schools should make it mandatory to learn gun safety so situations like this can be avoided.
