Guns-In-Cars FAIL, Exploding Ammo Edition

Well, now. I don’t suppose this is a scenario our gun-humping legislators considered when they passed guns-in-cars last year:

Emergency workers at a car crash on Interstate 95 Thursday had to contend with exploding bullets as fire ignited 40 rounds of ammunition in one car.

[…]

“The car was fully engulfed and it had exploded already,” Vanadestine said. “While I’m there trying to give first aid and help them I hear this popping.” The driver of the Honda told him he had two loaded handguns, a .40-caliber and a .380, and ammunition in the car.

“All that ammo started to explode and go all over that place. I could see it. The car was absolutely destroyed,” Vanadestine said.

Vanadestine ran to his cruiser and positioned it in front of the people who had been in the car.

“I couldn’t move them. I thought we were going to get hit with rounds,” he said. “For five to 10 minutes those rounds were popping off in that car.” None of the rounds hit the cruiser.

Firefighters had to stay back until the rounds stopped going off.

The 20-year-old driver of the car had a concealed-carry permit, so no charges were filed related to the guns and ammo.

Great, just what first responders need to deal with.

    This gun sucker with a permit is not even of legal age to drink.
    We can regulate alcohol consumption but not gun love…

  2. I’ve been reading all of this stuff for at least the last 10 years; uncounted thousands of stupidents or worse by moronz wit teh gunz and yet I rarely see where one of the “Well regulated militia” has done anything to deter domestic or foreign enemies from their mission to destroy MurKKKa.

  3. Ammo in the car, shooting in all directions; no problem.

    WHITE COUNTY — The death of a 7-year-old boy Sunday night is being considered an accidental shooting, according to Det. Chris Isom of the White County Sheriff’s Department.

    Isom said he and two other members of the White County Sheriff’s Department responded to a residence in Cassville about 8:20 p.m. on Sunday to the report of a shooting of a 7-year-old, whose identity has not yet been revealed. Isom said they believe the boy had gotten ahold of a pistol.

    The gun has been sent to the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation to make sure the gun was working properly and is consistent with what they believed happened, according to Isom.

    Isom said there are no charges pending against the child’s parents and right now they think the shooting was a tragic accident.
