"Lana Meisner, wife of Eagles member Randy Meisner, was tragically shot with a firearm that accidentally discharged," the LAPD tweeted.
The police explained in a press release that after a thorough investigation it was determined her death occurred when she moved a firearm and it discharged.
"Mrs. Meisner was moving a rifle that was stored inside a case in a closet," the press release explained. "As she lifted the rifle in the case, another item within the case shifted and hit the trigger of the rifle causing it to fire and fatally injure Mrs. Meisner."
Okay perhaps one of you gun owners can explain this to me.
I am told repeatedly that pulling a trigger to fire a gun is something that does not happen accidentally, and that guns are safe so long as they are handled with care.
Yet here is an incident where a gun was IN THE case, with nobody touching the trigger, and it still killed this woman dead.
In other words sometimes guns really DO kill people. And apparently without any help from people whatsoever.
