I think this is fair. He didn't know there was a bullet in the gun. I think his punishment has already been given to him. He lost his brother to an accident.

I agree with Rob. Mistakes were made, but he is obviously remorseful and will live for the rest of his life with a lot of guilt and grief. I hope he learns something and can find some degree of peace.

I disagree with the judge. Guns should ALWAYS be treated as
if they are loaded, ESPECIALLY if you have not verified otherwise.

To behave otherwise is purposeful endangerment.

Sometimes our own self inflicted punishment is sufficient.
