Texas singer and songwriter Steven Fromholz – named the state’s poet laureate in 2007 – died in a freak hunting accident on a ranch near his home, reports said Monday.

The Dallas Morning News reported that Fromholz was shot Sunday at the Flying B Ranch and later died at a hospital in El Dorado, about 40 miles south of San Angelo. He was 68.

Chief sheriff’s Deputy George Ariste told the News that Fromholz and a girlfriend were going to hunt feral hogs when the accident occurred. Ariste said the singer grabbed the handle of a case that was holding a rifle. The case was unzipped at the bottom, and the gun hit the ground and discharged.

Who cases a loaded gun?

Means to me that there was round in barrel?

What about the safeties?

Someone was negligent!

What happened to “treat every gun as if it was loaded”?
