Whatever shall we do about the epidemic of self-politeness?
At least this fellow had the good grace to be embarrassed when caught politing himself.
A man shot in the leg at the county park on Monday accidentally fired the gun, police said.
Police identified the victim as Antonio Quantico Davis of North Charleston. He had a gunshot wound to his left leg, police said.
“Davis initially stated that he had been shot by another person, then later changed his story, admitting that he had accidentally shot himself,” police said.
“In your face” politeness:
An Etowah County woman was hospitalized after she was shot in the face in what investigators believe was an accidental shooting Thursday night. . . .
Deputies responded after a man called 911 saying he’d shot his girlfriend in the face at their residence on Whites Chapel Road.
You can relax. More politeness patrols the polity.
At 4:13 a.m., three or more men broke through the front window of the Suburban Armory, at 1008 McDade Blvd., in Collingdale. Once inside the store, they stole semiautomatic handguns, and revolvers, said Steven Bartholomew, special agent for the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives.
NRA Paradise proliferates.
Be polite with your sawyer.
“Upon arrival, police made contact with [the victim] outside of his residence with a gunshot wound to his left foot,” (Lt. Curtis–ed.) Muhannad said. “He stated that he was loading his gun and pointed it down toward his foot when the gun went off.”
According to Muhannad, the weapon was a modified shotgun.
“It was a shotgun that had apparently been altered,” Muhannad said. “The barrel had been sawed off, and the stock was shortened.”
Guns and stupid–always a delightful combination.
In a corollary to the Ten Commandments, it is directed that you be polite to your father and your mother.
A man accidentally shot his 71-year-old father inside a southwest Omaha house on Thursday, police said.
Dober’s son’s gun accidentally fired about 2:15 p.m. at 10205 P St., police said.
Police did not release the name or age of Dober’s son and said they had not arrested him. He is an adult, police said.
. . . and yet another gun that fires its own damned self, yet another gun nut who will not be held responsible for his nuttery.
And then there’s this.
Be polite to younger family members.
Warren Township Police Chief Don Bishop says 15-year-old Jesse Hayes died Monday. He was shot Saturday night near Leavittsburg in Trumbull County.
Bishop says the 28-year-old cousin told police he had been talking with Jesse about hunting and had a few beers. He was showing the boy a new shotgun when he pointed it at Jesse and pulled the trigger. He told police he didn’t think it was loaded.
Guns, beer, and stupid: always a good combination in NRA Paradise.
If this is not negligent homicide, then there can be no such thing.
Another day in NRA Paradise.
Police say a 4-year-old boy was wounded when a gun apparently accidentally discharged and his head was grazed by a bullet in Ann Arbor. . . .
Ann Arbor police Detective Sgt. Pat Hughes says . . . three other children — two boys and a girl all under the age of 10 — were at the home at the time.
Other than that, police still haven’t figured out exactly who did what to whom.
Bay of Plenty Police District Command Centre’s Sergeant Dennis Murphy says police were alerted to the incident around 8 eight o’clock.
“A 16 year old male was duck hunting, and while hunting a firearm was discharged. As a result of that he is now unfortunately deceased.”
“Was discharged” by whom, precisely?
The intellectual dishonesty of reportage on “accidental” gun deaths is stunning.
Just another day in NRA Paradise . . . .
SAPD was called to an accidental shooting of a 3-year-old boy in the 2500 block of Babcock Road around 10:30 Saturday morning. . . .
SAPD said the boy was somehow able to get a hold of a handgun and was shot in the upper body. SAPD did not identify the type of handgun.
