Another day, another idiotic shooting by a “responsible gun owner.” This time it was a federal prison guard in Pennsylvania who got drunk and shot his own finger because he wanted to remove his wedding band. Yes, his own finger. Yes, he inflicted this upon himself.
Stupid Drunk Guy was at home, fighting with his wife over his infidelity (to quote Gilda Radner’s Roseanne Roseannadanna, “You sound like a real attractive guy!“), and wouldn’t you know it? He couldn’t get his dang ring off his dang finger.
So what’s a “good guy with a gun” to do? Shoot the dang ring off, of course.
One problem though: The idiot mangled his own finger, but still didn’t manage to remove the ring. It remained in place.
(AP) — On the day of the shooting, Malespini “had been drinking quite heavily throughout the day and he and his wife had been arguing throughout the day about an affair he had had several months ago,” Caskey said.
Malespini has been charged with disorderly conduct and was cited for firing a weapon within city limits but also is charged with reckless endangerment, a second-degree misdemeanor punishable by up to two years in prison. That’s because the bullet Malespini fired could have endangered someone else, Caskey said.
Yes, the “good guy with a gun” could have killed his wife. As noted in the hashtags by @KagroX in my post Police: Fla. teen who bought gun illegally accidentally shot off his penis and testicle. Got regret?:
Second Amendment negligence.
