Friends share politeness:
Ahern said his friend had stopped by Ahern’s apartment to visit and asked to see the handgun, which Ahern said he and his friend had used for target practice in New Hampshire in the past, according to the report. Ahern told police they were in his bedroom when he showed his friend the gun and that he didn’t think the gun was loaded.
Ahern said that after his friend placed the gun onto his bed, Ahern picked up the weapon by the trigger and it discharged, which startled both of them. Ahern told police he then drove his wounded friend to the hospital.
They never think the gun is loaded and they are always too caught up in ammosexual heat to check.
