Do not use a loaded rifle as a walking stick

Yes, yes, I know you know that. But AP is reporting that a 38-year-old man survived being in a van that rolled multiple times going down an embankment, but then died while climbing out of the ravine when a rifle he was using for support went off, and he was hit in the thumb and the head.

No, I don't know why he didn't make sure the rifle wasn't loaded before he headed up the hill. Perhaps he was dazed from being in a car wreck. I simply don't know. My condolences to his wife and daughter, who also survived the car wreck, only to lose their husband/father to a firearms mishap. Can you imagine? Yikes.
