(Omaha World Herald)   You'd think a firearms instructor and former police officer would know better than to accidentally shoot himself in the leg while parked outside of a school, waiting for his son   (omaha.com) divider line 136

guns dont kill people
stupid people with guns kill people

I assume that he was arrested and charged, right?
There is no need to read the article.

I KNOW that we have zero tolerance for guns in school zones. RIGHT?

He was just standing his ground.  And I thought we needed as many guns as possible in schools, to make them safe.


Won't someone think of arming the children?

You would be wrong. Even the most trained professional will eventually have moments of stupid.
 
2014-01-25 02:15:15 PM
Maybe he was filming himself as a "not like this" example for his gun safety classes.

En casa de herrero, cuchillo de palo.

In the blacksmith's house, wooden knives.

Familiarity bleeds contempt.

He just farking shot himself?
 
2014-01-25 04:14:48 PM
No, I wouldn't.  This is exactly the kind of thing that happens to over confident, can't-happen-to-me types.
 
2014-01-25 04:15:01 PM
I was told only law enforcement is qualified to use firearms.
 
2014-01-25 04:17:41 PM
then again, maybe i wouldn't be surprised at all.
 
2014-01-25 04:18:06 PM
If he and the schoolteachers had been armed this tragedy could have been avoided.
 
2014-01-25 04:18:17 PM
At this point its no more shocking that this happens then meetings doctors who smoke, IT professionals who choose weak passwords or bartenders who drink.  People sometimes do things that they should ironically know better then anyone is harmful to them self, meh.

I love stories from the "Never gonna live this down" file.

No, I wouldn't.

His thigh was clearly menacing him to the point he felt fear for his life. Probably ganging up on him with his shin and kneecap. That warning shot was all that saved him.

CSB: As a dispatcher, I go off on a daily basis about how people never have a clue as to where they are or where they're heading when they call 911.   And sure as shiat, the one time I need to call, "Where are you?"   "The fark if I know!"

Now he's bleeding on his ground.
And no longer standing.

Remember kids.
Police officers are hired if they meet the requirement of FAILING an I.Q. test.

Keep that in mind and you'll never be surprised at their stupidity again.
 
2014-01-25 04:28:18 PM
Some folks around here think of me as a "gun grabber" because I favor broad local authority to regulate firearms, but I seem to be missing the point of this submission. Accidents happen. People have bad luck. Everyone suffers lapses in judgment from time to time. But no one was killed, and none of the children were hurt, so what's the big deal?
 
2014-01-25 04:28:42 PM
I can't imagine why he was handling the weapon in his car. Unless he was actually fondling it...

I know a few people I wouldn't trust not to molest a poor, defenseless gun.
 
2014-01-25 04:28:54 PM
As long as it's only adults shooting themselves I could happily read these stories every day.

phlegmmo: You'd think.....

No, I wouldn't.


No one who has ever had any interaction with the PA state police would ever think that.
 
2014-01-25 04:31:30 PM
I'll give him a point for not shooting a student.
And then confiscate his guns.

The gun fired in self-defense.

So now he goes on a list so he can't live within 1000 yards of a school, right?

This is for fighting this is for fun.

Especially in a school parking lot.  You'll get cuffed, stuffed and filed as a sex offender before dinner.
 
2014-01-25 04:42:26 PM
What, you thought there was a gun owner out there that wasn't irresponsible? What's the point of owning a gun if you can't do idiotic things with it?

Dnrtfa. Was it glock leg? I bet it was glock leg. Not a huge fan of the "safety features" on that gun.
 
2014-01-25 04:46:28 PM
Great story. Sorry to hear he lived. Oh well..............
 
2014-01-25 04:51:08 PM
NO I would not think that, especially with the OVERWHELMING amount of Responsible Gun Owners we have in this county, as evidenced with every shooting.
 
2014-01-25 04:54:23 PM
Detective Costeau strikes again!!!
 
2014-01-25 04:55:19 PM
Did he post on Fark right after this happened?

That wold be the sensible thing to do. That attention emotional support could be helpful.

Piizzadude: NO I would not think that, especially with the OVERWHELMING amount of Responsible Gun Owners we have in this county, as evidenced with every shooting.


100,000,000 legal gun owners.

Yep, there are an overwhelming amount of responsible gun owners in this country.

Kind of like that kid floating down a river on ice.  They said he was disoriented and confused.  No, he knew he was floating down a river, he just didn't have anymore information to give.

Wonder why he is a "former" Police officer?

Came to say this.

Guessing, a Glock, 19 or whatever the other widowmaker is.
It is full retard to stroke your Glock.
And in the car?

But you see, none of those things have nearly as much potential for collateral damage as these nitwits do, which why there should be a whole lot fewer people wandering around with loaded guns to make this shiat possible.
 
2014-01-25 05:13:40 PM
There should be a special class for the idiot that loves his Glock w/o a safety.
I suggest Ermey Class.
