        Accidents happen all the time with guns,knives and automobiles. Lets not be judge and jury until all the facts come out. Too often public opinion is swayed with biased negative media coverage. Did everyone forget even Dick Chaney accidentally shot a guy. Fortunately this person lived. The consequences are sad in this case as someone lost their life. So long as Americans have the freedom to carry and bear arms and drive cars, there will always be accidents. We pray for all the families involved. God Bless America.

        If he was showing him a knife instead The ex-Soldier would be alive today. Never heard of a knife leaping out of one's hand and plunging itself into the unsuspecting victim. (Just Saying)
