If only there was a way to describe how his action caused a major setback for him.

Technically, I think it's only illegal to shoot yourself in the foot inside a building. I'm sure if you go out in a section of woodland where hunting is permitted, during hunting season, with a permit, and 'accidentally' shoot yourself in the foot with legal ammunition using a firearm that you own that is properly permitted and registered, you'll only have to pay the medical bills and not a fine on top of that. You would be an idiot, but it would be legal, I imagine.

Reckless discharge of a firearm. Doesn't matter where it occured, you can be cited for it. Most cops would assume the actual injury is punishment enough, but they can issue it if they feel like kicking you while your down.

If there's no witnesses, then it's only reckless if your story is bad. After all, who's to say some bad man didn't sneak up, steal your rifle, shoot you in the foot with it, and run away? Or maybe that rabid squirrel was this close when you fired, and damn if the ricochet didn't go right through your foot...:p

The paperwork said "Voluntary Accidental Death and Dismemberment"

It's a sad day when people can no longer volunteer.

What if you claimed you were shooting in self defense?

Only one man can legitimately claim to have attacked himself in self-defense:

Shooting yourself in the foot is nbot against the law as long as you're standing on concrete and use a large caliber weapon.

It's only against the law if you're not the only one in the room professional enough to handle a Glock foedy

No Subby, reckless handling of a firearm and shooting into an occupied dwelling are against the law. The shot in the foot part is just evidence.

Disclaimer: Yeah I understand the actual charge involved reckless use of firearms, drugz, etc.

More of a tangent here and kind of a soap-box speech, but the headline does a good job summarizing what's wrong with some laws in general. So many laws are made to..."point out" that something that is wrong.

I'm not talking about crimes where's there's an incentive to the perpetrator and damage to property, like theft. If the crime hurts a person because they're an idiot, OK then, the law won't change what happened. and the situation itself has all the disincentive there already.

btw, not subby

It's also against the law to put squirrels in your pants for the purposes of gambling.

The foot-shooting disables any ground-standing.

(Googles the street name)...yep, it's in Westgate. When we first moved down to Manassas, my wife and I went looking for a cheap-ish apartment as temporary housing. Got to Westgate, got out of the car to go to the rental office, spotted a crack pipe and two syringes littering the ground at the the local playground, got back in our car, and drove on to the next place.
