He said he was playing "shoot me" or "I bet you won't" with Cabrera and placed his right hand around the butt of the gun. He then pointed the gun at Cabrera's head and cocked the hammer with his left hand, according to his statements to deputies. He said the gun was about six inches from Cabrera's head when the hammer suddenly released and caused the gun to discharge.
When reporting on negligent discharges of a gun, why do they often leave out the part where the shooter pulled the trigger? I don't find the media biased against gun owners in this regard. It seems like they're trying to spin it in order to make the them less responsible.
What do you think? Please leave a comment.
