Accidental Discharge - Lost All Manpoints

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
I'm sorry, but I just couldn't stop smiling as its almost too comical to be real.

Cliffs Notes: Guy tucks a cocked pink pistol in his pants, pulls the trigger in the process, and shoots himself in the wiener. As if that's not penalty enough, he's likely to get cited for unlawful discharge of a weapon.

This guy just lost all "man points" imaginable figuratively AND literally. Pretty sure this qualifies for the darwin award.

This is why most pistols have multiple safeties, some as many as 3.

No gun should ever be pink, poor pistol.

Clearly, a pink gun is intended for a girl.... who has nothing "donwthere" to be shot when placed in a pocket.....

Ahhhh.... kinda funny when the news guy said "when the gun-shot hit him squarely where it hurts the most" - nice description of the the organ

This must be Plaxico Burress' reeeeally unlucky brother.

Which bathroom does he have to use now?

It seems he just got himself out of the gene pool. Definitely Darwin award material.....

What I am wondering is why was he putting a gun in his pants if they were going inside the grocery store??

One has to ask why he was carrying a gun in the first place, when they were going into a grocery store? Maybe with designs on robbing it?

This article says he was acting weird and likely on some kind of medication/drug.

They described the wounds as non life threatening. I think that's depends on who's opinion you're asking.

I'm glad he didn't get to do whatever it was he intended to do with that gun. It was Divine Intervention.

I think lots of Americans carry guns - it's their Constitutional right - at least to own them.

A great reason to screen gun ownership more closely, i.e., screen out the idiots owing guns.

In most states, you have to have a license to carry as well, I know because mine just expired. If he were under the influence as suggested, he just lost his for life.

I have to say though, statistically speaking I don't think anyone has been accidentally shot by a retard CHL holder, as flashing it around is considered brandishing so there's no real reason for it to ever leave a holster.

The more realistic concern are all the gang-bangers with illegal guns in the United States, as they tend to shoot other rather than their own weiners. The Subway store right next to my work was hit again last week, robbed by some ghetto woman with a shotgun. I usually chat with the guy there since he's been around for years, and he said that's it he's finding another line of work!

Unfortunately handguns are being brought illegally into Canada from the US for supply to our gang-bang idiots.

I'm surprised they would risk a border crossing, as in many parts of Canada gun ownership rates are actually far higher than the US average!

Then again, if I were up North where LEOs/animal control can be hours away, I'd make sure I could protect my family too.

I've concluded that its pretty much impossible to ban the traffic of illegal guns though, as its even more compact to traffic than drugs, and there's no country in the world that those aren't in circulation. Heck, even UK gang bangers are often armed, and they have the advantage of dense population (easier to police), harsh anti-gun laws, and are on an isolated island. Luckily though, the number of good upstanding citizens outnumbers the insane/suicidal and gang-bangers a thousand to one.

Legal gun ownership is probably fairly low here in Canada compared to the US. The illegal handguns are coming in and being used by the young punks and believe me they aren't paying any ownership rates. This is a big issue here and the politicians are talking about the problem which means that nothing will ever be done - just talk.

We don't live in the wilderness or jungle so we don't need to protect our families. And, most folks that live in sparsely populated areas probably have a shotgun or rifle (legal) around. I know my dad had several because he was a hunter.

I'm on a gun forum when not on the catsite, so I know all the statistics, lol! Legal gun ownership in Canada is a little under half the US average, but unlike the US its much less homogeneous with SE'ern provinces having very low rates and Northern much higher, which makes sense as they do have large animals and there's over 650 people per cop up there, which is about half what is normal for a developed country.

The old saying though, "guns don't kill people, they just shoot off weiners" applies though!

The Mexican and most South American governments have very oppressive anti-gun laws imposed on the people, and yet they have the highest murders per capita.

In fact, the United States which once was ranked very high, is now ranked 88th in homicide rate, despite ranking 1st in gun ownership. Hasn't been this low since the 60s! Even violent crime in the US is down overall, and is actually at under half of the UK as of 2010! I think its cuz all the bad guys were shot or shot themselves in the weiner. If it weren't for Philly, Detroit, and Baltimore the rates would be fantastic.... so I vote we build a wall around them and grant them independence, lol!

You forgot NY. and LA.

Yosemite, many places here could be considered Jungle, the concrete kind. Animals aren't much of a problem, but other people with bad intentions are.

Out here on the Island, in certain areas, there are home invasions going on. Mostly in upper class neighborhoods, by people who want to rob and perhaps kill the residents. I think as long as the person knows how to shoot a weapon, they should be able to have one, if they so desire.

Believe me, after being driven through some really bad areas of Detroit recently (during the day), I would definitely want a gun under my pillow at night if I lived there.

If the criminals and gangs were just killing each other, I'd be all for it!

And one statistic we keep hearing -- that most of the guns used in drug violence in Mexico came from the U.S. -- is seriously wrong. Or, more accurately, people don't give the second half of it.

The President has said 90% of all guns used in Mexican drug crimes come from the U.S. That's not true. Ninety percent of the guns submitted to US officials for tracing came from the U.S. But something like 2/3 of all the guns recovered in Mexico are not submitted to the US for tracing, because they are military weapons, most of which came from the Mexican military. That leaves, at most, 90% of 1/3 coming from the U.S.

I suppose that could be as true as the President's statement.

I do know that many, if not most, of the handguns used in crime in Canada have been brought in illegally from the US. It's a big problem here.

Yeah, that's just stereotypical statistical abuse. You'd think more people would get mad and realize that a half-truth is really the same thing as a lie when its intentionally misleading to push an agenda.

Oh well, I'm just glad that the fear mongering over the Obama administration banning guns/ammo left and right has finally subsided. For a while, everything was SOOOO expensive due to hoarding, but I just got 1000 rounds of Sellier & Bellot 9mm for $195 shipped! Woohoo!

I haven't been to the range in quite a while, since Winchester white box at Walmart went from $10.50 a box to $23.

I completely agree. Call it crime control.

I live in a virtually crime free area, nobody really needs a HANDgun. (we have deer and turkeys, so many do hunt during the season and have hunting rifles)
Unfortunately, most of the home invasion crimes happen in places like mine because the criminals know we're just not armed.
