    Another dead jackass

    I hate it that the mainstream media will lock onto a story like this, while systematically neglecting the hundreds upon hundreds of pro-gun, RESPONSIBLE gun-owner stories.

    And this is a Fox report... and yes, I consider them just as 'mainstream' as ABC, CBS or any other.

    Missouri Man Teaching Girlfriend About Gun Safety Shoots Himself in the Head - Local News | News Articles | National News | US News - FOXNews.com

    "A Missouri man reportedly shot himself in the head accidentally while teaching his girlfriend about gun safety.

    According to witnesses James Looney was insistent on giving his girlfriend a personal lesson in firearm safety Friday before taking her to a shooting range, MyFOXMemphis reported.

    As part of the tutorial, Looney demonstrated different safety features on several firearms then put the guns to his head and asked if they would fire, Jefferson County Sheriff told the station. The third gun actually went off.

    The 40-year-old was pronounced dead at a local hospital the next morning the same day he was to take his girlfriend to the range, the station reported."

    What an idiot. Stupid should hurt.

    Anyone who puts a gun to his or anyone elses head and it goes off is NOT an accident. It is total negligence. You can almost bet that this "girlfriend" will never pick up a gun as long as she lives after this incident, IMHO.

    Seems like there was another rocket scientist did the same thing a couple months back. Looks like he was appropriately named.

    The Four Rules

    1. All guns are always loaded.
    2. Never point the gun at anything you are not willing to destroy.
    3. Keep your finger off the trigger until your sights are on target (and you have made the decision to shoot).
    4. Be sure of your target and what is beyond it.

    This is just the way God thins the stupid ones out of the gene pool. It is unfortunate the girlfriend had to go through this trauma.

    I think he got so cought up in his bs he got distracted from what he was teaching, and blasted him self. never keep a loaded mag or any ammo near a weapon your displaying or teaching on. your asking for trouble. People shoot themselves while cleaning thier guns all the time. Thier not idiots, they just become distracted for a short period and pay for it with thier lives.

    Putting a gun loaded or not to your head is not very smart. He failed to observe two of the four major rules of gun safety. The gun is always loaded, and never cover anything with the business end of the gun that your are not willing to destroy.
