Congratulations, Hal Cartee! You’re Our 2nd Amendment Hero Du Jour

In guns everywhere Georgia, I’m sure it comes as no surprise that someone shot himself cleaning out his car at the car wash. Sadly, he’s also a Darwin Award winner:

STATESBORO, GA – Officials at the Statesboro Police Department say a man was killed in what they believe was an accidental shooting. It happened at the Flash Car Wash on Fair Road. 48-year-old Timothy Hal Cartee died from a gunshot wound. He was cleaning out his car when it happened. Foul play is not suspected and the death is being investigated as an accidental discharge.

Well done, Georgia!

    A tragedy but I personally appreciate the efforts of Georgia to reduce the number of damn fools and goobers. It is s ahem that he died but he could have been one of the blinding geniuses and responsible gun owners that might shoot me while fishing for his chaw of tobacco in line at the grocery.

  2. It’s always because of something other than their staggering stupidity.

    you are both jerks. i know the guy-he’s been nothing but nice since i’ve met him and he has family and this is a dick thing to say.
    (fyi-i’m not a gun owner nor a 2nd amendment supporter)

    • That’s the sad thing about Gun FAIL. It doesn’t care if you’re a saint or an asshole.

    • I know a number of otherwise wonderful people who are stupid, that’s the way life goes.

      Carrying a loaded weapon (with a round in the chamber) defines stupid unless you’re a soldier or a cop in a combat/life and death situation.

      Being a jerk is fine, being dead, not so much.

  4. “he has family and this is a dick thing to say.”

    That, btw, is kind of a “dick” thing to say, too.
