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

Another of our safest, most responsible citizens ever shoots himself practicing a maneuver with a loaded gun:

BOZEMAN (AP) – Authorities say a man who was driven to a hospital in Bozeman with a gunshot wound to the abdomen accidentally shot himself while spinning a small-caliber handgun around his finger.

The Gallatin County Sheriff’s Office says the 23-year-old man, whose name has not been released, was playing with the gun at his home Wednesday. The Bozeman Daily Chronicle reports witnesses drove him to the emergency room, where he was treated for a non-life-threatening injury.

Hey, it works in the movies!

    You know, since we don’t seem to be getting smarter people, perhaps we should attempt to develop smarter guns.


  2. Or, guns which, when “inadvertently firing” themselves are more accurate!

    My husband grew up hunting for food, in a family of deer hunters, and stories like this make him crazy. BTW, even though he has nothing against guns, he doesn’t own any now, because he doesn’t hunt and, as he puts it, “they’re more trouble than they’re worth, and attract the crazies”.
