Well, c'mon - someone at least get those photos off of his phone, post them to his Facebook page, and give his death some meaning.

There is a reason that people are taught from the very beginning to keep their booger hook off the bang switch...

He's a vet, he should know better than to point a gun at anything you don't intend to kill.

Not all of us can be a muscled Adonis.

The guy was making do with what he had.

His "ever more impressive" selfies all sound rather boring.
 
2014-08-03 11:11:14 AM  
I always make sure my gun is dead before I pose. I would hate for it to wake up in the middle of a photo shoot.

Even if so, is there any reason why you would pose with a loaded gun?

Why would he point his gun at something I didn't intend to kill? And how would he even know?

So he can't take any more selfies? Awesome. If this can be assumed to be the expected result I propose that we include a gun with every cool-guy phone purchase.

To be fair, they usually use needles for that purpose.

The same can be said about anything. Alas, we only want to do pre-crime for gun owners.

I, for one, support irresponsible gun owner selfies. Seems a very efficient way of culling the herd.

2014-08-03 11:43:04 AM  
But did he do gun selfies while wearing a tux? Because, you just can't match that level of classitude.

Idiot, you're supposed to get someone else to take the picture!  See here I am posing SAFELY with my most expensive and meaningful posessions:

He single-handedly insured that at least one idiot gun owner would no longer pose a danger to anyone else. Sounds pretty responsible to me.

Well that guy is still alive.

He also more than likely has his eye.

You mean like Joe Biden telling people to shoot through their door with a shotgun?  Yeah, we're not taking advice from the hoplophobes.  Those farkers need some serious mental health treatment for that paranoia.

That aside, I approve of this man's actions.  I can only hope he hurt before he died.  Stupidity on this level needs to be encouraged as long as it only harms the individual.
That aside, time for slashifying

When will people discover that taking selfies makes them look like tools.

Observe that numerous news reports exist regarding firearm owners who behave irresponsibly, yet few, if any, exist reporting upon firearm owners who behaved responsibly and thus caused no injuries nor deaths with their actions. The only logical conclusion that may be derived from such an observation is that absolutely all firearm owners, without exception, are irresponsible.

Behold his trigger discipline, farkers.
Behold it and admire.

....seriously, not-pulling the trigger would prevent like 90% of these accidents.

Gun enthusiasts are calm people and not easily baited into lashing out emotionally.
