Let me get this right…  a student picks up bullets OFF THE FLOOR, loads her own gun, point it at someone else and pulls the trigger because she thought it was a blank… Even Alec Baldwin had a better story than that.

It was a single shot gun that needs loading from the end of the barrel and packing down like an old musket. It is thought he was leaning over the end whilst doing this and his foot pulled the trigger.

Appalling firearms instructor. Bullets lying around, student allowed to pick up bullets and load a gun without supervision, student allowed to point the gun at people.

 

He was, frankly, responsible for his own death.
