GUN CONTROL: “Father Kills Son, Spouts NRA Talking Points” / The Young Turks / Cenk Uygur ☮

A father in Florida accidently killed his son while shooting handguns at an indoor gun range. He blames himself and says it was “operator error.” Cenk Uygur, host of The Young Turks, breaks it down. Tell us what you think in the comment section below.

“A Florida father blamed himself for the “operating error” that resulted in him killing his 14-year-old son in an accidental shooting at a Sarasota gun range on Sunday afternoon.

“The gun didn’t kill my boy. I did,” 64-year-old William Clayton Brumby told CNN in an interview published Tuesday.

“Every round in the gun is your responsibility,” he added. “When it fires you need to stand to account for it. That’s what I’ve spent the last two days doing, accounting for my operating error.”

Brumby fatally shot his son Stephen in what he deemed “a very freak accident” at the High Noon Gun Range. After firing a round, an empty shell casing reportedly ricocheted off the wall and fell into the back of William Brumby’s shirt. While trying to fish it out with his right hand, which was holding the handgun, he accidentally fired the weapon at Stephen, who was standing directly behind him.

CNN reported that Stephen Brumby was taken to Sarasota Memorial Hospital but died from the shot, which struck him in the jugular vein.”

  1. What truly enrages me about this case is that despite Florida law that clearly states accidental shootings are a criminal offense the father has yet to suffer any legal consequences. NO charges have been filed and he is still free to use guns, go to ranges and even have guns around his children. There has been no justice for Stephen Brumby.

    There are a growing number of us who believe this is wrong and the William Brumby should be held accountable for his crime. If you also believe this, please consider signing the petition and sharing with your followers.

    Thank you, in advance.
