Two Kansas Men Seriously Injured with the Same Accidental Gunshot

Local news reports Two males are injured, one critically, after their family member accidentally shot them with one bullet. At 1:20 p.m. Sunday, Shawnee County Sheriffs Department received a call of a shooting at 7610 SE Highway 40 in a field. Police told 13 News that a man was in a field near a trailer when he accidentally shot two of his male family members. Police say the males suffered with leg wounds and were transported to the hospital. Police say the man shooting didn't know the weapon was loaded. You think there'll be charges in this case?  I don't. But there certainly should be.  Violating the Gun Safety Rule number one should be a criminal offense. Or, let's say, violating Safety Rule number one should be a criminal offense when someone gets hurt or killed as a result. How's that sound?  Is that too tough a standard to live up to? What's your opinion?  Please leave a comment.
