    Why was the gun pointed at his abdomen?

    The only time there can ever be an accident with a gun is if it goes off and either wounds or kills yourself. Any other time it goes off and wounds or kills someone else is nothing but pure negligence and the person involved should be held accountable for their actions...I also would like to say that there is no such thing as dry firing a weapon when you have bullets in the chamber.........Got it?
