In Concrete, Washington, a 43-year-old man and his girlfriend were taking selfies while holding a gun.

Add in a gun and the results are obvious.
First rule of firearms safety is that “every gun is loaded”. Even if you just “cleared” it, then you still ALWAYS keep it pointed in a safe direction.
It’s a tool.
And, for the same reason one doesn’t juggle running chainsaws, you don’t do stupid things with a gun!
Make life hard for responsible gun owners.
