Yet another gun tragedy has ended a young life and the family of the victim is now obscenely profiting from it.
By now just about everyone knows the name Stephen Brumby. At 14-years-old, Stephen’s life was cut short by a horrible accident at a gun range dubbed “the safest in the nation.” His father, “responsible gun owner” William Clayton Brumby, 64, has taken full responsibility for his death.
Yes, he is most definitely better off “communing with the heroes of his faith.” It must have been God’s plan all along to take this teenager before he had a chance to live the life ahead of him so he could rejoice in paradise instead.
The GoFundMe has now reached more than $30K as of the writing of this article and there’s no sign of it slowing down anytime soon. It’s understandable that a family who lost a child and can’t afford to bury him would ask for help. It’s even understandable that people were willing to chip in. The problem is, the family came up with a figure of $10K, which is apparently what they needed. For them to leave the fundraiser up and profit by twice that from the death of a child is reprehensible at best.
And yes, GoFundMe has an option to automatically shut down a fundraiser when you reach your goal.
