NRA employee shoots himself at NRA headquarters. He was apparently holstering his pistol as part of firearms training, and it “went off”.
For realz? It just “went off”, for no reason at all?
Oh for Zombie Fucking Christ’s sake, people, guns don’t just “go off”. Somebody — or something — has to pull the fucking trigger, they don’t shoot by themselves. What’s that saying again? Guns don’t kill, people kill? Well, guns don’t shoot. People shoot. This dumb-ass motherfucker shot his fucking self, is what it boils down to, and did it with careless-ass gun handling. Didn’t put the safety on (assuming it’s an automatic with a safety, which, if it’s a fucking plastic Glock, it doesn’t have, which is why I wouldn’t own one of those goddamn plastic pieces of shit), left the hammer cocked (if it was a revolver), and managed to snag the trigger with his finger or part of the holster. Whatever. He’s the one who fucking pulled that trigger and shot his foot off whether accidentally or on purpose, in the end. The gun didn’t do it by itself. Guns aren’t fucking magic, peeps!
And follow this up with dumbass college student managing to shoot one of his dorm-mates. This is a piece of dumbassery that required a) violating the stated gun policy of the University of St. Thomas, a private Catholic college, and b) being stupid enough to actually remove the gun from its hidey-hole and pulling the trigger while inside a dormitory room. And one of his dorm-mates paid the price. Talk about your dumb motherfuckers…
But of course, what kind of week would it be without a school shooting to spice it up? San Bernardino, three dead including one child, one child severely injured. Why is it that these suicidal dumbasses with guns never just shoot themselves, instead they gotta go in and kill their ex and a random kid who just happened to be the wrong place at the wrong time before they eat their pistol? Zombie Jesus does not approve, peeps! If you’re going to blow your brains out, be a man and do it at home where Zombie Jesus can scoop out your brains for himself, don’t take other people with you. Sheesh!
Just another day in the failed state that is the United States of America. Have a nice day. (SNERK).
