Anyone this stupid deserves a second chance, at suicide.

The real story is that there is anything left of his head. That is a very and very fast round.

This was a suicide attempt.  He can scrawl all the sh*t he wants on a notepad because the remnants of his face are duct-taped together, but the smart money's on suicide.

There are only THREE RULES, people!
1. Treat every weapon as if it was loaded
2. Point the muzzle only at what you intend to shoot
3. Keep your finger off the trigger until ready to shoot

THREE RULES YOU STUPID F*CKS

I bet alcohol was involved

"Guns and alcohol - they just don't mix," the police chief said. "Dangerous combination."

Yup

It needs to be standard practice to charge people with negligent discharge or reckless endangerment every time some drunk-ass fires a weapon in (or in this case: into) public.

I could get behind that. But then, I'm one who advocates the idea that if a weapon registered to you is used during the commission of a crime, you can be held criminally liable in some way. I don't mind people owning guns, but we do need some "don't-be-a-dumbass" laws on the books for sure.

That's what got me about Plaxico Burress getting convicted only of an "unregistered handgun" offense in NYC but no charge for firing a weapon in a crowded nightclub.  THAT is the danger to the public, NYC... the projectile fired negligently in a crowd of people.

People can argue the efficacy and justice of NYC's gun ownership laws all they want, but no matter where you are there should be charges when you discharge a weapon in a bar, restaurant, et cetera.

And don't get me started on the fact that he was wearing sweats and flip-flops to dance club.

Dude failed at blowing his own head off with a .270. That takes special effort.

Next time, try a 12 gauge and check your aim in a mirror.
 
2013-11-08 10:39:47 AM  
Demonstrate again how you were shot.

I wish to bask in this gun owner's responsibility in the hopes that some will confer to me.

I've yet to reach a level of responsibility that would allow for getting drunk and shooting my farking face off.

The only problem with that is handling cases of lost/stolen guns.

Is it so hard to point a gun at the ground before pulling the trigger to prove it is unloaded? Why would people point it at themselves?

A gun can go off when you drop it.

Everyone gets told the rules.

You can't force everyone to follow the rules.

The nice thing about guns is that when people don't follow the rules with them, the repercussions are dramatic and generally fatal.

Again, a news article reports of the actions of an irresponsible firearm user causing harm.

I have rarely, if ever, read news articles reporting of the actions of a responsible firearm user causing no harm.

Therefore, responsible firearm users who cause no harm do not exist.

Uh... that's kind of the point (mostly... aside from idiots lending them out to questionable people). Keep track of your fookin' guns. If you have so many or are so stupid that you can't even do that you probably shouldn't have them. If they get stolen or mysteriously go missing report it to the cops IMMEDIATELY.

Exactly. Your get out of jail free card is that you make a report to the cops immediately when you discover they're gone. Otherwise keep them locked up in a box or safe and keep a trigger or barrel lock on them when you're not using them.

The distressing thing is that accidents with guns are not uncommon, if you lump "unintended consequences" into your definition of accidents.  I personally know some guy who was a big proponent of guns who had his daughter, in a fit of 15 year old angst, grab his gun, walk out into the back yard and blow her brains out.  Unintended consequences.  Anything that can be lethal in the blink of an eye will have unintended consequences.
