Fun With Guns

April 08, 2017 By: Juanita Jean Herownself Category: Uncategorized

Explain this to Wayne LaPierre.

At 3:40 pm at the headquarters of the National Rifle Association in Fairfax, Virginia, a 46 year old was teaching a gun safety class right there smack dab in the middle of the headquarters.

He, of course, shot himself.

According to police, the man, an employee, was participating in firearms training at the shooting range located in the museum when he attempted to holster his pistol. As he did so, the weapon accidentally fired, injuring the man’s lower body. The man’s name was not disclosed and no charges are expected to be filed.

They haven’t released his name but I sure hope it’s Helpless Dick.

Thanks to everybody for the heads up.

    If only the man’s lower body was carrying a firearm – it could have defended itself.

    (/snark)

    On a side note – how about the right to carry knives and swords? These would have been considered “arms” by the Founding Fathers, yet police keep arresting people for carrying pocket knives…

    At the NRA, the only way to fail a gun safety class is if you DON’T shoot somebody.

    RepubAnon, swords can be fun. At a joint USAF/Army formal occasion that Jane & I attended, the ring knockers thought it would be cool to wear their ceremonial swords. Then the dancing began and some dumb swirling stud accidentally raised his date’s skirt. Imagine the fun if only he had a six shooter tucked in his cummerbund.

  5. Didn’t say which part of the “lower body” was injured, but we’re all hoping that he qualifies for an auxiliary Darwin Award for having prevented himself from breeding.

    Yep, we’ll be safer when everybody carries a gun all the time, with no testing, training, or brain required. I can hardly wait.

  6. He shot himself at the NRA Headquarters Museum Shooting Range.

    Sounds like they might have a new exhibit. “And on this day in firearms safety history…”

  9. I very often pass the NRA headquarters when I am out and about and invariably I start out with a snort and end up laughing for about a mile! They left their previous building in D.C. because the neighborhood was too dangerous – way too many shootings!

    They just don’t get it, do they!

    See that word “accidentally” up there? My brother teaches gun safety and CC classes and he says there is no. such. thing. as an accident with a gun. It is stupidity.

  13. Maybe if any of these clowns had ever served in a branch of the US military, they would have received training on the safe use of firearms!

    My USAF officer training class was taught to handle pistols safely before we were allowed to actually load the .38s.
