An elderly man learned the hard way that you shouldn't point a gun at your son while you're unloading it.The 73-year-old man was at the family business in Camarillo yesterday. As he was unloading the gun, it accidentally went off, hitting his 38-year-old son in the upper torso, according to the Ventura County Star.

His son is being treated at a local hospital. Fortunately, his injuries are not life-threatening.
