Congratulations, Unidentified HI Man! You’re Our 2nd Amendment Hero Du Jour!

In Maui, Hawaii, a man accidentally shot his brother while cleaning his handgun:

Police said the victim’s 25-year-old brother had finished cleaning his .40-caliber handgun and was racking a round in the chamber when he accidentally pressed the trigger to discharge the bullet. It went through a bedroom closet door and through an adjacent bathroom wall to strike the victim, who was standing in front of a shower stall, police said.

Police said that the man who discharged the firearm had a strong odor of liquor on his breath.

Cleaning your gun while drunk. What could be safer or more responsible?

    Being drunk and cleaning gun with child in the room.

  2. This is totally OT but, because it involves at least one incident in TN, possibly two, I thought you should look into it. Apparently, in the last week there have been a series of fires — at least three of which were definitely arson — in Southern black churches. One was in Knoxville.

    Sorry for the interjection here, but was worth passing on. And a hat tip to yet another of the great but too little known local blogs. This one is the KY based and wonderfully titled ZANDAR VERSUS THE STUPID — though the quote above is from the article he linked to.
