Just another day in NRA paradise.

Some persons are driven to be polite.

The NRA will no doubt argue that, had this two-year-old been packing, he could have prevented this.

Politeness takes practice (emphasis added).

The manager told WAAY 31 an older customer was using one of the ranges Friday morning when he accidentally shot himself in the hand. She said Bullet and Barrel has Range Safety Officers in the bays at all times in case of an emergency, and everyone must obey and sign the rules and regulations list.

On the list, it says to treat all guns as if they are loaded, always point guns in a safe direction and keep your finger off the trigger until you’re ready to shoot.

The cite from the aforementioned list is pretty basic gun safety stuff that I learned at my Daddy’s knee. It’s also hardly rocket science. Hell, it’s hardly Gilbert chemistry set science.

I reckon he failed to read and comprehend the list before he signed it. . . .

Musical NotesGuns and stupid, guns and stupid,

You can’t have one without the other.

Be polite to your neighbors.

After interviewing witnesses, police determined that the man had been upset by his upstairs neighbors making too much noise around midnight. He attempted to confront them directly, to no effect.

Phoenix police sergeant Vince Lewis told KTAR that the man “had banged on the (neighbors’) door, yelling at them, trying to make contact during this argument.” He then headed back downstairs and allegedly retrieved a handgun from his apartment.

Police say that he then pointed the gun upwards towards his ceiling and discharged several shots, the last of which somehow wound up striking him in the face. No other people were injured in the incident.

They raise their firearms, carefully taking aim; they caress the triggers lovingly and let fly the cartridges.

They strike their targets, who drop lifelessly.

“Oh, no,” they cry, “I did not intend to do that regardless of how it might have looked. It was an accident.”

“That’s okay,” replies Mr. Enforcer. “As you are a member of the Fraternity of the Fair-Skinned, I must take you at your word.

“Oh, and before you go, have a cookie.”

Celebrate your birthday, politely.

A Florida man shot and killed his son-in-law after the victim jumped out of the bushes to surprise him for his birthday.

Richard Dennis opened fire on Christopher Bergan, 37, outside his house in Pensacola on Tuesday night in what police described as a ‘horrible accident’.

Afterthought:

One more time, “accident” and “negligence” are not synonyms.

This man took a life because he is a fearful little twerp whose NRA appendage makes him feel like a Real Big Man.

And yet another gun that fired itself . . . .

One of the man’s roommates was unloading a gun in the same room as the man and it went off, hitting the man in the face, Suazo said. It appeared to be accidental, and the roommate who accidentally shot the man remained at the scene and was being cooperative with police, he added.

Be polite to the neighborhood children.

The boy said he and his friends play in the street and on the sidewalk all the time, but this time, he said, Spahn wouldn’t give them the ball back and threatened them with a revolver.

Cannot disguise . . . .

According to the department, investigators believe Elliott shot Mixon for looking at him while stopped at a red light near Thunderbird Road and 30th Street.

Seal your friendship with politeness.

A Louisiana man was arrested for allegedly shooting and killing his childhood friend with the victim’s own gun after he picked up the pistol to admire it during a party, authorities said.

(snip)

Though the gun was loaded, it did not have a bullet in the chamber when Lemley was given it, but he pulled its slide back and simultaneously squeezed its trigger, cops said witnesses told them.

One of the guests reportedly said he tried warning Lemley that he had loaded a bullet into the firearm’s chamber, but it was already too late.

Be polite to your suite mates.

Sheriff’s deputies said they reported to a call regarding an accidental shooting, and found a victim suffering gunshot wounds at the home. A man reportedly heard a noise and went outside to investigate, carrying his pistol. When he returned inside, the man mistook his roommate for an intruder and shot him, according to Capt. David Agee of the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office.

He pointed a gun at a man, he pulled the trigger, he hit his target.

And the story goes on that “witnesses” are calling this “accidental.”
