    2nd Amendment Revocation: Dad Accidentally Shoots Self, Son Accidentally Shoots Mom - Geekologie

    Accidentally shooting yourself: it's embarrassing and it hurts (sometimes fatally!). Accidentally shooting yourself and then your son accidentally shooting your wife: are you sure you're qualified to own a firearm?
    The double shooting blunder happened in Alabama recently, as the father, Allen Jones, was retrieving his trusty Glock .40 handgun from the glove box in his truck.
    As he walked back to his house, he tripped and fell, causing the gun to discharge and accidentally shoot him in the leg, just above his knee.
    Because his wife Aleisha was upstairs bathing, it was his young son who was the first on the scene. And by the time Aleisha had made it downstairs the little lad was holding the weapon.
    When she then tried to take the gun from the child, another round fired, this time shooting her in the left side of her neck.
    Neighbours who heard the gunfire called 911 and the wounded pair were soon taken to to hospital where they're in stable condition.
    Dammit Darwin, what are you, on vacation? This could have been a couple easy award recipients right here. But did you show up to give them trophies? Nooooooooo. YOU KNOW THEY'RE NOT GOING TO LEARN THEIR LESSON! Just ask the father, I dare you -- ask him what he learned. "Don't keep my gun in the glove box." SEE?!?!
    Crappy local news report after the jump.

    Darwinism at it's best.
    All you can hope for is the testes get shot off to stop the gene pool

    Another reason why I keep my gun in a holster 24/7 when loaded.

    Safety is no accident. This is wonderfully negligent. I started thinking of the Simpson's episode where Homer uses a gun to change the channel on the TV when I read this.

    I could not agree more.. Almost all "accidental" discharges are negligent.

    Well this is kinda Darwinism since she was stupid enough to marry the guy and then not stand behind him when he's playing with guns.
    Glad the children weren't in the way.

    At least they didn't chalk it up to being an "accident."

    Oh wait, they did.

    More evidence that everyone -- EVERYONE -- should have a firearm. The more the better. No restrictions. Full auto, RPGs, etc. What could go wrong?

    There is a logical explanation of how this happened.....and everyone seems to be missing it.......Alabama.

    It sort of reminds me of an old National Lampoon story about a deposed socialist leader in South America that went something like: "Our fearless leader commited suicide using an automatic weapon from 35 feet stopping only once to reload".

    Maybe learning to keep your booger picker off the bang bang switch could help too

    What is it with Glock "Fo-tays" and people's legs? I guess nobody is professional enough to carry them.
