Congratulations, Unidentified MI Woman! You Are Our 2nd Amendment Hero Du Jour

At this point, these folks have descended into self-parody:

FREMONT TOWNSHIP, MI — A 51-year-old woman accidentally shot herself in the face after she slammed the butt end of a shotgun on the floor, causing it to discharge, the Tuscola County Sheriff’s Department reports.

Deputies were called about 10 a.m. Monday, July 14, to a house on Waterman in Fremont Township for a report of a gunshot victim.

Upon arrival, deputies found that a family dispute had taken place and the victim, a 51-year-old woman, told officers that she had taken a shotgun out to “make a point.”

She told police she slammed the butt end on the floor, the gun discharged, and she was shot in the face.

This could only have been better if she’d shot herself in the foot instead.

    And don’t you just love the passive voice? Not that she shot herself, but that she Was shot in the face!

    • Good point, I didn’t even catch it! Passive Voice Gun Dodge strikes again!

        Odd how “Guns don’t kill people. People kill people.” Yet whenever there is a negligent discharge, it seems that “The gun shot the person. The person didn’t shoot the person.”

    The article is written as if unseen mysterious forces whimsically set this
    “tragedy” in motion.

    was on the same page.

    “The group, led by Michiganders for Immigration Control and Enforcement organizer Tamyra Murray, marched a little more than a mile, from Vassar City Hall to Wolverine Human Services’ Pioneer Work and Learn Center.”

    Apparently Mr. Krol of MICE is a direct descendant of Native Americans who were here when the Europeans arrived in the 15th century. Good to know.

    From there they prolly went to a fundraiser for some worthy teabaggist lege wannabe.

  4. If only ammosexuality was a problem that corrected itself WITHOUT putting others at risk…

  5. “she had taken a shotgun out to “make a point.”” She made a point all right lol.

    Ya know, when folk’s mental states are a quarter bubble off plumb they really should leave the guns in the safe.
