    Not just that, but why was it loaded?

    Everybody points out the potential Rule Three violation and forgets the Rule Two flub.

    Maybe the gun slamfired while he was cycling rounds out of the action? Rule Two would have kept it merely noisy and embarrassing rather than potentially fatal.

    The article seems to imply that “unloading” in this instance means “removing from the vehicle.”

    Which would mean gramps wasn’t trying to make the gun safe in the parking lot – he was still oblivious to the condition of the rifle and manipulating it as if it didn’t matter.

    He got out his side, grandson got out the other side, and when gramps picked the gun up in the car, he grabbed the trigger and shot the kid through the car.

    ** That last part should say “shot through the car and hit the kid.”

Remember, I do this to entertain me, not you.
