Authorities Say Vodka-Drinking Father Accidently Shoots, Kills Daughter

MARYSVILLE, Wash. — A father arrested after his 6-year-old daughter was shot to death in their Washington state home allegedly told police he had been drinking double shots of vodka while cleaning his guns.

Court papers say Richard Peters told detectives he had asked his daughter, Stormy, to bring him the .45-caliber handgun Sunday. He said he must have pulled the trigger, and the girl fell to the floor. She was pronounced dead Monday.

Bail for Richard Peters, 42, was set Monday at $250,000. He has been arrested for investigation of first-degree manslaughter.

His attorney, Annika Carlsten, requested that Peters be released from jail, The Herald newspaper of Everett reported. She argued that Peters isn’t a flight risk, or a danger to himself or the community.

A phone message for Carlsten was not immediately returned Tuesday.

The Snohomish County sheriff’s office said two other children were removed from the home by Child Protective Services.

I suppose all of the anti gun bunch will be orgasmic over this one, but it wasn’t the fault of the gun. It was the fault of the IDIOT that OWNED the gun.

There is not a responsible gun owner in America that isn’t fully aware of this one cold, hard fact: Guns and Booze DO NOT MIX!

It’s called personal responsibility folks, you have heard me hammer that thought home on many occasions, especially when it comes to guns and children, and the responsibility the parent has in that area.

Beware, before someone goes off half cocked (pun intended) thinking I am calling for stricter laws regarding guns simply because I believe in PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY, just like the last time, when I blamed the range master and father for the death of the child with the UZI, Boy, 8, dies after accidentally shooting self at gun show, YOU are wrong.

You can’t legislate common sense, STUPID is NOT against the law, this issue primarily falls on basic gun safety, plus common sense and parental responsibility that had gone horribly wrong! ALL the gun laws in the world wouldn’t have stopped this. The eradication of ALL guns, the physical demise of legal gun ownership, as the loony left advocates, would NOT have stopped this.

This is NOT a 2nd amendment issue in MY opinion, this is a case that graphically illustrates that some people are too damned stupid to live, some people would die if breathing were not a reflex action, and this *father* is one of those individuals!

The *father* of this little girl was STUPID, and as Ron White is so fond of saying, you can’t FIX stupid!

    Stupid…stupid….stupid. This guy now has to live the rest of his life knowing that his stupidity killed his daughter. What’s wrong with these idiots allowing a young child like that to handle a loaded weapon?

  2. Give Vodka Guy a speargun and the results would be the same. Time to ban spearguns.

    Stupid is not the word. I don’t think the English language has a word for this asshole (pardon the vulgarity).

    When cleaning my guns I don’t drink anything stronger than coffee or tea. Even then, I try not to drink much of that. And I never leave a loaded gun around the house without either the safety on it, or a trigger lock if there are children present.

    Gun safety should be taught to all who own guns.

  4. This is just beyond belief. I hope that guy goes through what most parents of dead children do with the added benefit of steroids, crack, and no vodka.

    Vodka can be used to degrease guns in a pinch. But the booze goes on the gun, not in the mouth…

    One kid dies from official incompetence, and now one dies because the father was criminally, IMO, incompetent…

  6. Stupid is not against the law, but it does tend to be self-correcting over generations…

    It’s people like this that cause the anti-gun crowd to scream and yell about firearms. I fear some lawyer and judge combination will overturn the right to bear arms, and it will be because of these MORONS.

    I honestly do not have a problem with taking a test prior to purchasing a firearm. BUT I also think folks should have to pass a test before voting. BOTH of these RIGHTS are dangerous in the wrong hands.
