Single shot went through both legs, subby.  Your headline implies he shot twice.

Guy in the article is an idiot, though.  He broke two important rules:

1. Keep  your booger-hook off the bang-switch, and

2. Keep the muzzle pointed in a safe direction.

Unintended discharges can happen when you are "clearing" a weapon.  It's very, very rare for anyone competent (for example, I've never had it happen to me), but it can happen.  MP stations used to have a "clearing barrel" outside for that, a 55 gallon drum full of sand to catch bullets from their M1911A1s and M-9s, back when I was in the Army.

If you follow the rules, though, no one should get hurt in the extremely unlikely event that you have an unintended discharge.  So this guy?  Dumbass who didn't follow the rules.

Coleman attempted to show his wife that a 9-millimeter gun in the house was not loaded.

"Look, biatch...the damn gun ain't loaded...

BANG BANG BANG

...anymore."

Clearly the answer is more guns.

Monday Matthew Coleman pleaded innocent to a misdemeanor count of simple assault with a deadly weapon.

I would have plead innocent to deadly assault with a simple weapon or perhaps even simple simple with an assault weapon. But never, ever plead innocent to deadly simple with weapon's assault.

They'll find him Not Gill Cup.

Is this the thread where people tell us guns are harmless because the guy was:

a dumbass
or a criminal
or not a "responsible gun owner"
or not following the rules
or standing his ground
or mentally unstable
or not property trained
or a young child
or rightly fearful of  black teenagers
or not trying to hurt anybody
or not a legal gun owner.

The gun violence rate is obviously pretty close to zero, when you account for the circumstances!

Indeed. I am unable to locate any notable news articles about firearm owners who behaved responsibly and caused no harm to anyone due to their proper handling and safety measures.

Shoot them in the legs. That way they can't stand their ground.

jaytkay: Is this the thread where people tell us guns are harmless


You know, I've been posting about guns on Fark for a long, long time.  And I was posting about them in a weekly column I used to write before that, and before that in talk.politics.guns on Usenet, and *BEFORE* that on various bulletin boards accessible on FidoNet.

I can't ever remember saying that guns are harmless.  They hold the potential for great harm.

That doesn't mean that, in general, people can't be trusted to own them.

Maybe I just have a better opinion of my fellow human beings, on average.

His wife asked him how he ever planned on learning unarmed combat if he never went to the training sessions. He replied, "I don't plan on being unarmed," then pulled out his sidearm and shot her through both knees.

I wish I had a nickel for every time on television or film I see a character remove the MAGAZINE (duh, "clip")

This alone has directly lead to countless deaths and injuries.

Yup every responsible gun owner instantly becomes a dumbass when they do something like this, it is amazing how fast those terms can be swapped out!

After all, no true responsible gun owner would ever let his gun discharge accidentally.  If they do let their guns discharge accidentally, then they are not true responsible gun owners.

True, though some models can't be fired without a magazine inserted. In the case of my handgun, the top of the magazine is part of the physical linkage between the trigger and the hammer/sear assembly. If the mag is pulled, the trigger is rigidly locked in place. Of course, it's a single-action with a hammer-block safety too, so even if there was a round in the chamber, as long as it's not cocked you'd have to work pretty hard to get it to "go off".

But I still don't allow a loaded gun to cross my doorstep, and I'd never point one at my wife even if I thought it was empty. Then again, if I was married, I might feel differently about that.

We are aware that you advocate prohibiting all civilian firearm ownership. You need not continue your reliance upon fallacious argumentation to assert that advocacy.
 
2013-09-10 02:28:18 PM
....yeah, I do believe many if not all Taurus and newer S&W autos have a magazine disconnect safety.

Still....as clearly and plainly stated above...all guns are ALWAYS loaded.

Nice Mohawk.  He looks like a real responsible gun owner.  It's too bad he wasn't married to that wife in the other headline who pushed her husband off a cliff.  In any event, hopefully this episode will keep firearms out of his possession and the world will be saved another deadly shooting.
 
2013-09-10 02:32:43 PM
I'm still mildly surprised/disappointed when I read about people doing these incredibly stupid things. I'm not a optimist, so I'm beginning to suspect maybe I'm just potato.
If you fire your gun, it's not an accident. If you want to verify it's unloaded by pulling the trigger, save us all a lot of trouble and make sure the barrel is in your mouth first.

I've never advocated that.

And they say 2nd amendment enthusiasts are fearful and paranoid about imaginary threats. Where do people get that idea?

Perhaps, then, you should state what you actually advocate rather than present strawman misrepresentation of the arguments of firearm rights advocates.

2013-09-10 02:43:37 PM
So let me get this straight:

If you own guns and handle them with care and respect, you're a responsible gun owner.

If you're a responsible gun owner and you accidentally shoot a family member, you're no longer a responsible gun owner and therefore don't count as a statistic anymore.
 
2013-09-10 03:02:08 PM

Dimensio: Perhaps, then, you should state what you actually advocate


I advocate ridiculing the logical fallacies endlessly thrown up as "proof" that guns and gun culture are not a problem in the US.

I advocate pointing out that gun enthusiasts are a frightened group of bedwetters, and normal people laugh at your paranoia and your belief that you are brave warriors and heroes.

Please feel free to ask any questions if any of that is difficult for you to understand.
