The hunt for politeness goes international.

Chip in for a bit of politeness.

Langdale told responding officers that the victim accidentally shot himself while cleaning a hunting rifle. That claim was not initially refuted by the victim since he required emergency surgery after being rushed to the hospital with life-threatening injuries.

But when the victim’s health improved enough for a police interview, he told investigators Langdale shot him after warning him not to consume his potato chips.

What was I saying about all those folks shot while cleaning guns?

Yet another responsible gun owner hunts for politeness.

A Fayette man was shot Monday morning when a person hunting wild turkey accidentally fired a 12-gauge shotgun in his direction, authorities said.

The man, Richard Hannibal, was walking dogs along Richmond Mills Road when a single pellet from the round struck him in the chest, said Lt. Kevin Adam of the Maine Warden Service in a news release. According to police scanner reports, the pellet didn’t break Hannibal’s skin, but did give him a welt. He declined to be treated or taken to the hospital.

Be polite as you execute carry out your parental duties.

A Portland mom was arrested Thursday after her gun apparently fired by accident in a Northeast Portland elementary school cafeteria while she was picking up her child, police say.

Had the students been armed, no doubt this would not have happened. Just ask the NRA.

Musical Notes

    Guns and stupid, guns and stupid,
    They go together like love and Cupid.
    Let me tell you, brother,
    You can’t have one without the other.

The hunt for politeness continues.

According to the Polk County sheriff’s office, around 7:15 p.m., the woman was hunting on her parents’ property in Clear Lake Township. As she was leaving her deer stand, she walked into a field and was shot by a 17-year-old boy who was hunting on the nearby property.

Maybe it was her antlers, or, then again, maybe this responsible gun owner just wasn’t paying attention.

We are again reminded that politeness is child’s play.

Campbell said that the two-year-old and his brother walked around the corner into a bedroom, where the two-year-old got a hold of a gun and accidentally shot himself in the upper chest/neck area.

According to Campbell, the family reported hearing a loud pop. After finding the child, the family immediately called 911 and headed to Rusk. Unfortunately, by the time they reached paramedics the child was deceased.

Thus passes another day in the NRA’s Garden of Eden.

Politeness takes practice:

A 14-year-old Weber County boy was killed Sunday afternoon in what authorities believe was an accidental shooting in Rich County. The teenager was a passenger in a white Chevy truck, driven by his father, when he was struck in the head by a stray bullet.

Rich County Sheriff Dale Stacey said the bullet was fired at a target several hundred feet from the truck. The shooter involved as well as witnesses stated that they did not know there was a road down range, and could not see the vehicle due to thick brush and trees.

Yes, indeed, it is the mark of “responsible gun owners” that they shoot at the knowable unknown.

Be polite to your romantic partners.

First responders arrived to find the man applying pressure to a wound on the right side of his 21-year-old girlfriend of four months. She told police they had just returned to his apartment after getting dinner when she heard a gunshot and (she–ed.) fell to the ground.

(snip)

The man gave a brief statement at the scene, saying that the couple had just gotten back to his apartment from dinner. He always has a pistol with him, and he thought he cleared the rounds from it when they returned. He said he didn’t realize it was loaded when it went off, and the bullet hit his girlfriend.

He didn’t know the gun was loaded (sigh).
