He loves politeness so much that he sleeps with it.
A Deltona man who shot himself in the hip with one of two guns he sleeps with will not be charged, a sheriff’s spokesman said.
Volusia Sheriff’s investigators determined the shooting was accidental and will not file charges on Richard Cooley, 53, said sheriff’s spokesman Andrew Gant.
I dispute the “accidental.” One cannot be this stupid by accident.
Politeness takes practice.
Dawn Bryan told deputies that bullets hit her house, pool enclosure and a window, shattering it, shortly before 11 a.m. Saturday.
Sheriff’s officials say Scott Radford, 33, of Hillsborough County Fire Rescue, and Hillsborough Sheriff’s Deputy Paul Adee, 25, were firing a rifle behind Radford’s house when some bullets unintentionally hit Bryan’s house on the 3800 block of Porter Road in Lithia, a community in east Hillsborough. The properties abut each other.
The bozos clearly need a lot more practice in how to be polite neighbors.
Be polite in the produce aisle.
Police say they have taken one man into custody in connection with the incident. He is identified as 59-year-old Gerry Good of Gibsonia.
He is facing charges of two counts of simple assault and two counts of recklessly endangering another person.
“What had happened, the man shopping in Giant Eagle bent over to pick something up, he was wearing a fanny pack and had a .380 inside his fanny pack, when he bent over that fell on the floor and discharged, striking two other people inside the store with debris,” Chief Robert Amann, of Northern Regional Police, said.
Guns and stupid, always a perfect combination. And they go together so often.
Via Southern Beale.
More parental politeness.
Police say the boy was at his home in the 1600 block of Norton Street when he went into a bedroom where his father was sleeping and found a handgun. The boy’s mother told police she was awake in the living room when the boy went to the same room as his father to go to bed.
The mother told police approximately 10 minutes later she heard a single gunshot. The boy’s father awoke to find his son injured from a gunshot wound to the head.
Having more guns lying about will, no doubt, eliminate such events in the future. At least, so says the NRA.
Always a good policy.
I can’t help wondering whether the secret sauce in gunnuttery is the wish to kill someone, anyone, just to see what it feels like.
Rear your children politely (emphasis added).
The Dallas Morning News reported that 53-year-old Steven Johnson had taken out his gun at his home in Colleyville to show it to visitors.
According to Colleyville city spokesperson Mona Gandy, the gun discharged and Johnson’s 10-year-old daughter was struck by a bullet that went through a wall of the home.
The wording of the story indicates that this was yet another gun that fired itself. Nevertheless, for some fool reason, the person who was holding it at the time has been arrested. . . .
Words and how they are used matter, folks.
Demonstrate politeness to your public officials.
The Secret Service says multiple gunshots were fired from a vehicle near the Delaware home of Vice President Joe Biden on Saturday night.
The vice president and his wife were not at home at the time.
The Secret Service says the shots were fired at around 8:25 p.m. on a public road outside the secure perimeter near the home in Greenville, Delaware.
At this point, it remains unclear whether this was sedition, stupid, or a confluence of the two.
Follow the money (emphasis added).
The NRA is popularly portrayed, including in the (recent PBS “Frontline”–ed.) broadcast, as an organization of 4 million members, representing an estimated 80 million American gun owners, out of a U.S. population of 316 million. NRA members are generally presented as a relatively benign collection of hunters, gun collectors, a few people obsessed with gun possession and a few more who consider it necessary to be armed against a potentially dangerous U.S. government or to resist the United Nations — the paranoid “black helicopter” crowd. It is also assumed that the NRA’s estimated $250-million-a-year budget, including a generous amount for Washington lobbying, is financed by its dues and programs.
This is only half true. At least half of the NRA’s budget comes from some 16 U.S.-based weapons manufacturers or marketers, including the ubiquitous, profitable Walmart.

A polite look . . .
A 20-year-old man was accidentally killed on Saturday afternoon when he and an acquaintance were looking at a gun in a Baton Rouge home’s storage room, according to police.
The two men were in a home in the 4900 block of Jefferson Avenue when the gun went off around 12:30 p.m., said Cpl. L’Jean McKneely, a Baton Rouge Police spokesman. A single bullet struck the 20-year-old in the chest, and he died at the scene, according to McKneely.
. . . and another gun that went off on its ownsome.
Perhaps we have reached the gunularity.
Be polite to your partner.
Fayetteville Police say Zia Segule, 28, left for work. His wife, 27-year-old Tiffany Segule, set the home alarm system. Zia Segule returned to the home unannounced to surprise his wife with breakfast. The alarm sounded and Tiffany Segule, who had gotten back in the bed, shot her husband in the chest through their closed bedroom door.
If only the husband had been packing, he could have returned fire to protect himself.
The NRA and its gun nut followers thrive in a world of fear.
“Shoot first and ask questions later” is a policy not embraced by persons in possession of their faculties; it is, nevertheless, the NRA way.
These people are nuts, and cowardly nuts at that. They would slay an unknown before they face it.
