“Responsible Gun Ownership”

He was booked into the Santa Rosa County jail and later released after posting bond, jail records show.

Yeah, based on his photo, that sounds about right.

I really hope the girl has a few interviews at a CASA or some therapist appointments. A reaction like that is so abnormal and concerning. Someone kind and well trained needs to talk with her about what is going on inside the home when no one is watching

This. That’s not an overprotective father’s reaction. That’s a possessive father’s reaction. Ew.

Yes, that’s the reaction of a man who demands complete control over his child.

That is a truly baffling circumstance. There is a staggering amount of care taken to keep live ammo and blank ammo segregated. We even used to transport them in separate vehicles. After all range activities a full shakedown should be performed to ensure all rounds are accounted for. I expect this last step was skipped after a prior live-fire event (because SF guys are sometimes too cool for procedures).

Blank rounds require fitting a blank-fire adapter (BFA) to the flash suppressor. Since a SAW was used I expect the first live round that was fired destroyed the BFA, and the subsequent rounds struck the victim.

My bet is that the SAW was being used in magazine-fed mode vs belt-fed. A belt of live rounds would have been immediately obvious.

Responsible gun ownership flows from responsible gun design, manufacture, and distribution.

I think the international community should support Mexico in interdiction raids in the US including bombing gun factories whose main trade is illegal exports to criminals.

You have to transport ammunition in a hard sided case - usually locked up with your firearm. Kinda harder to miss that in your luggage. :person_shrugging:
