Congratulations, Unnamed Alabama Man! You Are Our 2nd Amendment Hero Do Jour

Guns in cars, so not smart:

An Attalla man reaching for his cellphone accidentally shot himself in the leg while driving on the Interstate in Gadsden Monday.

According to police reports, the incident happened at 1:20 p.m. in the westbound lane of the Interstate 759 bridge. Police responded to a call of a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

Upon arriving, officers found a 21-year-old Attalla man who witnesses said had been driving when he reached into his pocket for his cellphone. In doing so, he accidentally pulled the trigger of his gun, shooting himself in his left leg. A passenger in the car grabbed the steering wheel as the man passed out.

Fucking brilliant.

  1. Gadsden? Don’t tread on–BANG!

    Schmuck.

  2. Heh, more proof that it’s dangerous to use a hand-held phone while driving!

    And why are these people never charged with a crime? Bet he was violating some rule regarding discharge of a weapon in public. And lack of control. And just plain being a moron? Oh, wait. Most of Georgia would be in jail,on that charge.

  4. I call BS. He shot himself with a loaded Obamaphone.

    Another couple inches over and he’d have done us all a favor.

      Dear Gunzloonz Nayshun:

      Killing people by accident with your penisubstitute, like charity, should begin at home–preferably while you’re there alone.

    Irony deficiency anemia will keep our hero from learning anything from this.
