Richard Peters is the kind of guy that gives left-wing liberals ‘ammunition’ in their argument that our guns should be taken away. Hell, people like Richard Peters shouldn’t be able to own guns. The problem is that they are not a rare breed. There are a few rules used when handling firepower. One is that the weapon is always loaded and should be treated as such. Two is that excessive amount of alcohol and weapons just don’t mix and aren’t a great idea. Three is that people that have not been properly schooled in the use of firearms shouldn’t be fooling with them and the weapons should always be kept out of their reach.

Richard forgot all three of those rules this week when he sent his six-year-old daughter Stormy to go up and get his pistol from his room so he could clean it. Oh yeah, he had been doing double shots of vodka as well.
Richard says that he emptied the magazine in his pistol but apparently he had left one in the chamber in his vodka fueled brain fog and he accidently pulled the trigger and killed six-year-old Stormy.

Richard Peters was arrested on 1st-Degree-Manslaughter and his bail was set at $250,000. His attorney Annika Carlsten asked that he be released since he is not a flight risk or a danger to himself or the community. I guess they must have removed the vodka from his house.
