“An Armed Society Is a Polite Society” 0

A recipe for politeness at the confluence of guns and stupid:

Warren police say Garlock put the gun in the broiler because children were coming over.

His girlfriend, unaware of the gun’s presence, turned on the oven Sunday to bake. Police say she called out to Garlock when she thought she heard a gunshot fired outside. Police say Garlock was struck by bullets or bullet fragments when they exploded inside the gun.

The person who wrote the story decided to be all cutesy-poo and point out that “no charges have been filed against the oven,” but, then, it wasn’t the oven that was stupid and negligent was it?

It wasn’t the girlfriend, either. How many of you open the oven door to check for weaponry before turning on the broiler?
