Responsible Gun Store Employee Accidentally Shoots Himself With Gun He Thought Was Unloaded (via Americans Against The Tea Party)

A 69-year-old Tennessee man accidentally shot himself in the hand yesterday. Why is this news, you ask? After all, there are 14,000 to 19,000 accidental shootings every year here in gun-crazed America. What makes this case special is the ironic location…

    A gun store employee didn’t think to check the chamber to make sure it was empty? They must have a really low bar when it comes to hiring requirements.

      That and when an old man comes in because that same gun needs to be fixed, firing it isn’t the best idea.

      Which is so much like shooting yourself. Yeah I can totally see the analogy here.

        Or they can go to a right-wing site and get an answer they want to here that may be totally devoid of fact.

          “hear” not here….must be that left-wing education.

      When I can ride a gun to work and back, then ask me that question. You don’t need a kiddie toy, you do need transportation. Derp!

    I’d really hate to see that guy in the pic ruin his buddies drink…

    Picture doesn’t fit the story- propaganda picture at best. Only thing missing was Pajama Boy. If you notice the untrained fool in the pic has his finger on the trigger, not outside the trigger guard as any real trained gun owner knows.

      You’re ONLY concern is the picture. Didn’t have anything else in that talking point NRA bag?

    Go to YouTube and look up ‘Cop shoots self’ and tell me how many you find. Highly trained gun users. Accidents happen. Bad judgement happens.
