This is a tragic, although not an unexpected result of what can happen when universal safety rules are ignored and common sense is not exercised.
The Ohio Concealed Carry Laws and Application .pdf, published by the Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine states: “The law requires certified training in the following matters: The ability to name, explain, and demonstrate the rules for safe handling of a handgun…”
This again proves that training (regardless of the quality) has little value if it doesn’t change your behavior.
It’s important to note that there are hundreds of thousands (if not millions) of responsible gun owners and carriers, may of whom never receive any formal training, who act responsibly and would never consider allowing their friends to clown around with their weapons.
Leannais, who has never been convicted of a felony, agreed to prosecutors’ request that he give up any guns he still has and surrender his concealed carry license as part of the conditions of his bond. He was also ordered to have no contact with any witnesses to the shooting.
