    Sometimes our own self inflicted punishment is sufficient.

    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.

    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 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.
