Did we have a thread that disintegrated almost instantly into a clusterfark of gun control/amendment rights bullshiat yesterday?  I understand that this article is pretty funny, and fark used to be a place of pithy, witty and hilarious comments, but the those comments are rapidly being drowned out.

Scariest part of TFAAccording to the report, when one of the officers inspected the gun and laid it back on the seat, the gun discharged, sending a round through the vehicle's door and into the passenger door of a car parked in the next space. The officers then took control of the gun and unloaded it. According to the report, the rifle's safety was off, but "even with the safety in the off position, the weapon should not have discharged." A closer inspection showed that the rifle's slide cover was not mounted correctly and appeared to be the wrong cover for the gun. "The gun also was very rusty and had not been maintained well," the reporting officer noted. "I also noticed the butt of the weapon was attached to the receiver with a wood or drywall screw."

The guy who blew up a canyon in Utah by wrecking his truck full of explosives got a misdemeanor charge of "causing a catastrophe" (Fark thread from way back when).

Meanwhile in Massachusetts, a man is facing a 2 1/2 year minimum sentence for felony blowing up a watermelon.

I don't know what's scarier:  that this idiot was traveling around with a gun in such poor shape or that the cops didn't unload it in the first place, just to be safe.

I had a friend who did this when a fight broke out at a soccer game.  Unfortunately his gun was at his house on the other side of the river, so by the time he got back with it the fight was over and everyone was playing again.  They all laughed at him.  Well I should say, they all laughed at him more than usual, since he walked funny due to a  case of Rickets and everyone was always laughing at him.

Depends. What color was he? If he's white, he's just exercising his second amendment rights. If he's brown or black, he's a gun-wielding thug.

Also, FTFA: "According to the report, when one of the officers inspected the gun and laid it back on the seat, the gun discharged, sending a round through the vehicle's door and into the passenger door of a car parked in the next space."

Brandishing an altered poorly maintained semi-automatic rifle in response to a bad basketball call isn't normal.

Exactly what I thought too.

This is a perfect example of a very irresponsible gun owner, and a pretty good example of incompetent police officers.

That would never fly in America.  There would be dozens shot and hard feelings.  We aren't civilized, responsible gun owners like those Georgians.

Your reasoning is sound, but it's a basketball game in a town that is 46% African-American (which is more than any other race). I'd say the jury is still out on this one.

He was probably a pathetic little shiat and deserved it. Kids like that need all the bullying they can get. It builds character and keeps them from turning into complet e liberal pussies later in life.

Well, if a black guy can wave a gun around as irresponsibly as a white guy and face the same (minor) repercussions, I guess that's progress. Kind of. I look forward to the inevitable "man shoots own foot while showing off gun" followup story.

I can remember running to Woodruff Place Community Center after school to watch The White Shadow back in the late '70s. Go there, spend the afternoon playing basketball, and watching the show in the evening.

LOL, when I was a teenager, I hauled hay for a guy named Mike King. Everyone called him "Two-Gun" behind his back, because one evening he went into town to spark a bar wench, found another guy moving in on his territory and picked a fight. The guy beat the crap out of him, so he went home, strapped on his guns and went back to the bar, where the same guy proceeded to disarm him and gave him another beating. So he was quite sensitive about his new nickname.

Probably good that I am not in charge. Castration would be the judgement.

It's people like this guy that I hope off themselves in the woods, alone, before they kill someone. Or procreate.

Spot-on.  I'm very strongly pro-2nd Amendment but honestly, assholes like this really piss me the fark off.  Anyone this incapable of maintaining a weapon shouldn't be allowed to own one.
