“Remember, never point your gun at anything you don’t intend to put a hole in“:
An eastern Missouri man is dead after accidentally shooting himself while teaching firearms safety to his girlfriend. KSDK-TV reports that 40-year-old James Looney of Imperial died of a gunshot wound to the head. […] Witnesses told authorities that Looney would put the guns to his head, ask his girlfriend if she thought the gun would go off, then pull the trigger.
The safety mechanisms worked for the first two guns. But the third gun fired. Looney died Saturday at a hospital.
Simultaneously the worst and BEST firearms safety lesson possible. A Darwin Award awaits you…
