Gun used in music video later killed the rising star. Not a lot of details. Shot himself, shot by someone else? Gun in a Country Music Video, 6 gun, Glock?

Foxnews has more info:
https://www.foxnews.com/entertainment/c ... l-shooting
Up-and-coming country singer Justin Carter died at age 35 after a gun negligently fired while he was filming a music video.
Carters' mother Cindy McClellan told Fox News her son was filming a music video in Houston, Texas on Saturday when a gun in his pocket "went off and caught my son in the corner of his eye.
Slight edit: changed accidentally to negligently. You drop a gun in your pocket without the trigger covered you expose yourself and others to negligent discharge. Mishandling a gun is not an accident.
The left lies about everything. Truth is a liberal value, and truth is a conservative value, but it has never been a left-wing value. People on the left say whatever advances their immediate agenda. Power is their moral lodestar; therefore, truth is always subservient to it. - Dennis Prager

This really makes no sense! Gun his pocket went off and caught him in the eye? Gun was in the pocket grip first?? Gun was suppose to be a prop but it's loaded with live ammo?

There is obviously details that were not publicized. It ain't possible to shoot your self in your eye from your pocket.

What if the gun was in his back pocket and he had his head up his rear?

Well... maybe. But I have never seen anyone that flexible.

Wouldn't necessarily have to have been 'real' ammo. Since he was an 'up and coming' performer, I'm guessing nobody involved was old enough to remember the incident below....which has been mentioned in forum threads previously.

Thats all the MSM wants to say. Guns fire suddenly, with no reason and kill EVERYONE. Guns bad. End of story.

There will be no update I bet.
