Congratulations, Taylor Hancock! You’re Our 2nd Amendment Hero Du Jour

This Alabama man tried to blame the trusty ol’ “unknown assailant” when he was shot while driving his car earlier this month. The gunshot caused a serious single-car wreck and Hancock was hospitalized for several days.

Well, it turns out there’s a little more to the story. Roll that beautiful gun fail footage:

Deputies spent several days following leads. The break finally came during a conversation with Hancock.

“He admitted to having an accidental discharge,” Johnson said. “He was trying to clear a jam and it was an accidental, self-inflicted wound.”

Johnson said Hancock panicked when he was questioned about the wound and gave a false statement. No charges have been filed.

I’m sure he’s suffered enough. Playing with your gun while driving. Shooting yourself and causing a wreck. Lying to police. Nothing to see here, move along …

    The one constant is “no charges will be filed.” It’s endless and these things will continue to happen as long as they do not file charges. At the very least, he should be charged with giving a false report. What the heck?

    • “He’s suffered enough, he’s learned his lesson, arrgle barrgle…” I did a Google search, it appears he’s like 19 years old or something. I’m sure they don’t want to ruin this promising young man’s life.

      So much fail.

  2. Can’t help but thinking the Big Pharma chemists are busily concocting a medication to alleviate “Accidental Discharge.” The commercials will play during the Super Bowl, right after the “Deflated Ball” product. (Sorry, it’s pathological. I tried not to post, I really did.)

  3. It was bound to happen. He was “fiddling” with his gun while driving. He was getting all aroused and excited, and then blamo, comes “the accidental discharge.” Ooh aah!
