    Any idiot can kill himself doing stupid things with a gun.


    BUT....


    It takes a WHOLE SPECIAL BREED of stupid AND unlucky to manage to kill yourself with a .25 auto!


    I mean hell those things are barely fit for shooting mice.

    This is the kind of reply I expect from some liberals that can see a story about a guy intentionally pointing a loaded gun at his own face then decide he's completely blameless when he shoots himself. Lol.

    ... The two witnesses said Perry was displaying his recently purchased .25-caliber handgun when "he set the safety, pointed the gun at his face, pulled the trigger and the safety didn't work," Roechner said. ...
    so, if this process is replicated, where the trigger is pulled while the safety is set, and the pistol does not fire, then these two 'friends' are arrested as perps, right?

    I doubt the safety malfunctioned. What is more likely is he thought the safety was on when it was not.

    Completely agree, if we could only round up all the people we think are idiots in this world and put them all into one place, we would be a much better society. In fact, we could do this, while at the same time giving them remedial jobs without pay. Then when they become useless to us, we can gas them or burn them in ovens and throw them into a big pit.

    Wow, you don't even know this person and your willing to condemn them to death because of a simple error that could probably happen to just about anyone. The problem in this situation is that this individual had a false sense of confidence and became complacent. We have become a society that has become complacent when handling something that could kill us or someone else in a split second. We are all being told that guns are safe, and this false sense of security is what leads to these situations. Guns are for one purpose, to kill or incapacitate someone. This is not being taken seriously enough. And to be happy about the loss of a persons life is sickening.

    The guy pointed a gun at his face.......... and pulled the trigger.

    Could you please answer me this? Who is to blame in this video? The person, the gas, or the fire?

    Not the smartest person in the wold, but the gas and fire certainly was the cause of his death.

    Also rule number 1 of gun safety. Never, ever, ever, ever, even if you think the gun is unloaded or the safety is on, point a gun at yourself or anyone else.

    Also, the guy didnt die or get hurt in the fire video. As I doubt you were being some type of facetious.
