That calls for a little more than a ďTime OutĒ.

I completely agree.

The takeaway from this unfortunate incident is that one should continue to monitor the muzzle control of even well-instructed kids. Ultimately, safety is always the responsibility of supervising adult.

Hard to counter that logic. I canít imagine being on either end of the accident. Just pray itís not severe and the worse thing to come out of it all is that their story is used as a reminder to prevent more tragedies.

Treat every gun as if it were loaded and point in a safe direction at all times

Most important of the primary rules

The gun should have been unloaded outside the truck.

Yep, but that would be a common sense issue and that is never involved in an accidental shooting incident. Actually I donít know why itís called ďaccidentalĒ when it should be ignorant and or stupidity shooting.

It is called "accidental" just like car wrecks are called "accidents" by people not in the insurance industry. It is because they are not on purpose. More appropriate descriptors used usually include the discharges being negligental or unintentional with "accidental" discharges being left to valid weapon mechanical failures resulting in an unintended discharge, such as a Remington 700 discharging when the user tries to open the bolt (many court cases and Remington recalls on this) or a gun that is supposed to fire semiautomatically that ends up firing fully automatically.

I was speaking overall....in more general terms also with a tad bit of sarcasm thrown in. I know about weapon malfunction and other issues that may truly be accidental.
My point being that a very high percentage of accidental discharges are the total lack of knowledge or common sense that involves a human element

Most shooting-related accidents don't happen in the field but around vehicles when people are handling loaded weapons. Needless to say, waiting until you are in the field to load your firearm and unloading it before leaving the field eliminates the chance of it happening.

It makes me cringe to think about what that could do to a leg at close range like that. I hope it just grazed him.

I follow this topic via google alerts. Most shooting-related accidents involving injuries or deaths do happen in the field and not at vehicles. Texas seems to follow what goes on elsewhere pretty well. Take 2017. There were 21 firearms-related incidents. 2 were as you described around vehicles, 1 was after the hunt goofing around the campfire, and the rest happened in the field.
https://tpwd.texas.gov/education/hu...dent-report-official-revised-3-25-18.pdf

2016: 19 incidents, the data are a bit vague, but only a few (3) specifically mention vehicles and may a couple more happened around them.
2015: 20 incidents, 1 vehicle-related, 1 possibly vehicle related
2014: 25 incidents, 2 by hunters who were hunting from their vehicle, 1 of which being an intentional shot that hit someone on the next property, and a 3rd inside a vehicle.
