Three Nevada Teens Playing with Guns - One Dies - No Charges

Local news reports
Officers from the Winnemucca Police Department and Humboldt General Hospital Emergency Medical Service were dispatched to a McCoy St. residence on Saturday (February 23) around 7:30 pm,  for a report of an accidental shooting.
First responders found a 15 year old teenage boy with a single gunshot wound to the right hip/abdominal area. The young man was transported to HjGH for medical treatment. He was rushed into surgery in critical condition before being transported by Care Flight to Renown Hospital in Reno. The young man died en route.
Preliminary information on scene established three teenage boys had been handling fire arms when one of the firearms was accidentally discharged striking the teenage victim at a short distance.
This investigation is still ongoing.
Yeah, an investigation in gun-friendly Nevada, that's sure to turn up a guilty party. Here's a bit of irony.  The fanatics for gun-rights often accuse us of blaming the gun.  But, in reality they are the ones who do that when it's convenient.  In this case, "one of the firearms accidentally discharged." And you can bet no human person will be held accountable.
