I am starting this thread about firearms safety, and some of the most off the wall things people do with guns. I get articles sent to me, and phone calls about discharges and asked my opinion on what happened and how things could have been avoided. Some are hard to figure out, others like the one below are pretty obvious of what went wrong and how it could have been avoided...... Seems a man was installing a satellite system and had trouble getting a hole punched thru the wall to run the cable. So he decides to place his wife on the outside of the house while he uses.......you guessed it, a gun to shoot a hole thru the wall for the cable to pass. Outstanding! SEDALIA, Mo. -- Officials are trying to determine whether to file charges against a man who fatally shot his wife while trying to install a satellite television system in their home. Patsy D. Long, 34, of Deep Water, was pronounced dead early Saturday evening after being shot in the chest with a .22-caliber handgun. Patsy Long was standing outside the residence while her husband was installing a satellite television system. According to sheriff's department spokesman Maj. Robert Hills, Ronald Long fired a shot from the inside of their home after several unsuccessful efforts to punch a hole through the exterior wall using other means. Investigators said Ronald Long believed his family was inside the house. He told authorities that he fired a second shot, then called out his wife's name and the names of their two children. When he got no reply, he ran outside and found his wounded wife. Patsy Long was hit by the second of two shots fired by Ronald Long, the Henry County Sheriff's Department said.
