Gun Appreciation Week Continues!


On Friday afternoon, an Iowa gun dealer closed out the week by becoming the sixth person shot at a gun show. The man claims he was “showing off a .25 caliber pistol he thought was unloaded when he slid the action of the gun.” The gun was not unloaded, and a bullet went through his left palm.

After this incident, police found a second loaded weapon on the wounded gun dealer’s table.

So the score is six accidental gun show shootings in seven days. Not bad aim, ya got there, boys.

    Guns don’t shoot people. Idiots with guns shoot people.

    Weren’t there any good people with guns to stop this poor man from accidentally shooting himself in the hand?

    Oh, I’d say their aim was pretty bad, since (as far as I remember) none of the accidental targets died from their wounds. Not this wk. anyway.

    And this is the pool of qualified gun owners the NRA wants to draw on to provide armed guards in schools throughout the land.


  5. Dimitrios says:

    Yes, lambchop, there were a few good men with guns to stop him, but unfortunately they would have had to shoot him in the chest to stop him from shooting himself in the hand, so why waste a bullet.

    Now, if a head shot had been open …..

    Where’s a teacher when you need one?

    Why don’t we just outlaw this shit and legalize pot? I can’t remember the last time a stoner shot someone.
