Darwin Is Laughing His Ass Off

By Wyatt Earp | September 23, 2009

PistolEspecially after he sees this moron’s entry into the Darwin Award foray. Note to the initiated: you should always treat a weapon as if it was loaded.

And, you know, it might be a good idea to refrain from putting the gun to your head.

I’m just sayin’.

A Missouri man reportedly shot himself in the head accidentally while teaching his girlfriend about gun safety.

According to witnesses James Looney was insistent on giving his girlfriend a personal lesson in firearm safety Friday before taking her to a shooting range, MyFOXMemphis reported.

As part of the tutorial, Looney demonstrated different safety features on several firearms then put the guns to his head and asked if they would fire, Jefferson County Sheriff told the station. The third gun actually went off. The 40-year-old was pronounced dead at a local hospital the next morning. (H/TFOXNews)

Aaannnddd . . . dumbass! Actually, this reminds me; I have my annual pistol re-qualification tomorrow. Better get that Glock cleaned. I wonder if I should take that round out of the chamber first?

    Ouch. That reminds me of that DEA agent who shot himself in the foot while demonstrating gun safety to school kids. Maximum dumbassedness.

    Hey, I remember that John D! LOL
    It makes you wonder how they ever made it into adulthood, being so stupid and all.

    “A Missouri man reportedly shot himself in the head accidentally while teaching his girlfriend about gun safety.”


    Man that’s a pet peeve of mine.

    Let’s see, this dumb-ass violated all 4 rules and when the gun goes off, it’s called an accident.

    It’s more accurately called stupidity in motion.

    I’ve got lots more to say on this subject but need to cut it short because I need to pick a scab with a shotgun.

    If you have a re-cert coming up, don’t let this little lady intimidate you…

    Wow. Damn. Wow.

    Real life is too deliciously ironic these days. You can’t make stuff like this up.

    This is why I follow the newest version of Rule #1: Every Gun IS ALWAYS Loaded.

    Twice in the last 12 months, one of them this weekend, I had occasion to pick up a firearm, which I believed to be unloaded. Following that rule, I ALWAYS open the action, whatever it may be, and found myself slightly surprised to find a round in the chamber.

    In my 40 years on this planet, I’ve never had an “accidental” discharge, and I intend to never have one in the next 40, or the 40 after that.

    Wyatt: That’s just “Ethnic Roulette”. It’s like Russian Roulette, only you use an automatic rather than a revolver!

    Of course, with a name like “Looney”, he might just get it named after himself!

    Wow, Julie G. rules! She reminds me of Annie Laurie Starr in “Gun Crazy” (1950).

    It’s never a good idea to put a gun to your head, as Mr. Looney (he lived up to his name) has demonstrated.

    Sounds like survival of the fittest to me. No need to worry how shallow his gene pool was any longer. I’m pretty sure this girl can do better or maybe not depending on her last name.

    Sigh….looks like it is time to shock the gene pool again….

    “Now, honey if this gun was really loaded, this is something that you would never want to do” BLAM

    1. Drop magazine
    2. Work action three times
    3. Check chamber physically and visually

    note: after third evolution of working the action, if rounds are still coming out, you either forgot step 1 or the good Lord himself is providing your ammunition.

    Oh, and never point the gun at your own head. Never mind the whole “and don’t pull the trigger” part of it.

    A part of me is glad this person is no longer with us.
