I am sad to hear of the death of this man.

I'm asking how situations like this can be avoided in the future.

I have friends who invite me to go shooting and I respectfully decline every time.

My older brother George was shot in the back by his best friend when I was a kid and I have never been able to get over his death.

I am afraid of guns and I know if I don't touch them I can't mess up.

Thanks and thumbs up to all who answer ... just give me time to get back and read the answers.
Update: Charles Vacca dies far too early in his life while a 9 year old girl will live with the heartache of knowing she accidentally killed a man.

Are there age requirements when shooting automatic weapons even in outdoor shooting ranges?
