Kimothy: Is it still Darwin-award worthy if the shooter doesn't die?


Not eligible for Darwin award, no, but a case could be made that this does help human evolution.  She prevented her brother from reproducing, and her brother shares some of her DNA, so she did, indirectly, prevent similar DNA to hers from being passed on.  So no Darwin award but she might deserve an honorable mention.

FTFA: "Savannah Ramirez, right, shot her brother Manuel, left, accidentally in the head on New Year's Eve when posing for a picture with a gun for facebook"

The very next line: "Scene: Police said 22-year-old Ortiz and his sister, who has not been named, arrived back at the home they shared on New Year's Eve after spending the night drinking."

Good job maintaining confidentially, DM!

gregscott: They probably made sure the gun was "unloaded" by removing the "clip".

Tip: if a pistol has a round in the chamber, removing the magazine will not unload the round in the chamber.
Tip: Russian Roulette with a semi-auto is not a good plan for the first guy in line.


My grandmother learned that the hard way. Spent some time in the backyard with her Glock (a real Glock, not a a journalist Glock), fired off her 15, and ejected the magazine. Then when she put the pistol in the case, it went discharged the round in the chamber and put a lovely hole in the wall.

And is it Polish Roulette with a sem-auto? Or is that where you put 5 rounds in a revolver?

It would be when you put one round in the revolver...but it misfires so you look down the barrel to see why and then pull the trigger again.

Last weekend, my brother-in-law gave me a custom concealed holster for christmas, but we had to bake the kydex and form it around my pistol. I had unloaded it, but when he asked if it was unloaded, I told him not to take my word for it and check. It's the only way to be sure. In fact, I only go to gun stores that check every gun every time before they hand it to a customer.

There is a responsible way to own guns.

I think it's actually a good Darwin candidate. When drunk people start pointing guns at their heads it's time to leave, not to time to hang around and pose for pictures with them.

Same here, and after they hand it to me, I check it again myself, every time.

Why was the gun even loaded?

when isn't it considered loaded?


Do you disassemble loaded weapons for cleaning?

They're all loaded.


I meant "why didn't they check the chamber and magazine".

I realize from the perspective of gun safety that the gun is always loaded (yes, I taken a gun safety course), but from a "no seriously, how did this happen" standpoint, if you are going to take a picture with a gun, you should double, triple, quadruple check everything before doing anything else.

This is why I always squeeze the trigger of an unloaded gun while aimed at someone else before I do it to myself.

I don't care if I checked it a hundred times, I still wouldn't point it at my head. But yeah, that was a big FAIL.

I have a feeling the girl didn't know how to check the gun. Pulling the trigger is easy to figure out, popping out the magazine and opening the chamber is a little less intuitive.

The brother deserves one, no question. The sister isn't eligible, but as I said, she might deserve an honorable mention for at least getting rid of similar genes if not her own.

If you're going to make a bold claim like black people are too stupid or irresponsible to safely own guns, you better have some strong evidence to back up your claim. So far, you've provided none.

Are you kidding? A person who would pose like that is a person who would only do it because the gun is loaded. You don't get no street cred posing with an unloaded gun. Then you're just a poser who's afraid to die.

I don't see how naming large cities shows that an increase in the rate rate of black people owning guns iscorrelated with an increase in gun violence, let alone that the gun violence was caused by that increased ownership rate.
