And another gun that mysteriously fired itself . . . .

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

Addendum:

We got talking about these “I was cleaning my gun” shootings during my quarterly visit to the barbershop. Those of us who know how handle firearms find them puzzling.

As I drove away, I realized that, in many cases, “cleaning my gun” is likely a euphemism for “having ammosexual relations with my gun.”

Cleanliness is next to politeness.

Cookeville (Tenn.–ed.) police said 28-year-old Jared Sidwell was cleaning a .40 caliber handgun Friday when it accidentally discharged.

The bullet passed through Sidwell’s left hand and shot 30-year-old Jeremy Sidwell in the right arm.

Anyone who is too stupid to ensure a gun is unloaded before starting to clean it is ipso facto too stupid to be allowed near a gun.
