Fun With Guns: God’s Mysterious Ways Edition

November 30, 2015 By: Juanita Jean Herownself Category: Uncategorized

A gun store in Oklahoma named “Save Yourself Survival and Tactical Gear,” didn’t exactly meet up to standards this weekend.

The store has a No Muslims Allowed policy but apparently no policy against shooting yourself.

But one man at Save Yourself could not save himself from himself. His Colt .45 revolver fell out of his holster and discharged, hitting him in the wrist, the Tulsa World reported.

Muskogee County Sheriff Charles Pearson has not been real impressed with the volunteer security guards at the store who think that Muskogee, Oklahoma, is next on the Isis attack agenda.

Screen Shot 2015-11-30 at 5.46.27 PMPearson expressed concern about how some of the guards were handling their weapons. “I saw several of those gentlemen out there yesterday,” Pearson said. “The way they were holding their weapons, with the fingers on the triggers, you can tell a couple of these gentlemen have no idea about weapons safety. It’s like the Clampetts have come to town.”

No, I disagree.  Ellie Mae was a whole lot smarter than these guys.

And this, my friends, is how the terrorists win.

  1. Every time I’ve driven through Muskogee,I sing “I’m an Okie from Muskogee”. My daddy used to sing that song when I was a kid. They still may not smoke marijuana (although,most of the people I do know that are from there actually do) or do LSD (does anyone do that anymore??),but meth and white lightening? Well,those may be a whole ‘nother story…

  2. Dangnab it, kharma just blew a perfect chance to improve the OK gene pool a bit, by aiming just a little over at this jerks ‘nads (and lawd knows the OK gene pool needs some major hep).
    Carp, wotta darn shame.

    “His Colt .45 revolver fell out of his holster and discharged, hitting him in the wrist…” His wrist? Crap, is there no balance nor justice in the universe?

  3. You know its only a matter of time when the split-pea size brains line up to show how manly they are with their exterior S&W plumbing that the EMTS have to be called out to clean up the damn mess. And the split pea size brains never learn. They are always a lobe or two short, just like a day late and a dollar short.

  4. Polite Kool Marxist says:

    Sandridge, no joke, one of my sisters thought about marrying an Okie. Without a doubt there are some wonderful Okies. That particular Navy Seal shit wasn’t one of them. My little wussie punk ass beat him down like a drum. I didn’t need a gun. I was 15, he was 22.

    But, thanks to my beautiful wife Jane, I’ve evolved. I hope to never hit anyone again. Worst euphemism ever is “lucky punch.” That ain’t happening, if someone dies.

  5. “… with the fingers on the triggers.”

    The second thing I learned as a kid was that you only put your finger on the trigger when you are going to pull it. These fools shouldn’t be allowed to have a gun.

    [The first thing I learned was to always keep the gun pointed at the ground until you are ready to shoot.]

  6. Edward Starsmith says:

    There is no such thing as a “gun accident”. There are only examples of unsafe gun handling.

  7. Exactly, Edward Starsmith.

  8. I have a very simple request: Can somebody–anybody–please explain to me why, oh why, some people think the Second Amendment is soooo much more important than the First Amendment?

    It seems so, I dunno, incongruous somehow.

  9. The Ammosexuals are terrorists.

  10. @Edward Starsmith, I agree about “no gun accidents.” And those who practice unsafe gun handling should have their guns taken away until they can demonstrate that they know how to carry and use them safely. As anyone who wants to own a gun should have to demonstrate, like a driving test.

  11. Does that make him a limp wrist now? Devil made me say that.

  12. Gun negligence is the issue here and as many before me have stated, gun owners should have to purchase special insurance policies. When situations like these occur, their premiums should be raised through the roof, effectively preventing them from legally possessing a gun. Of course, Rhea’s contention that “those who practice unsafe gun handling” or threatening behavior with a weapon should result in the loss of of the guns is absolutely the way to go. Now, back to reality.

  13. Speaking of reality, Ted Cruz has made the pronouncement that most violent crimes are committed by Democrats. I’d like to know his source on that bit of crapola.

  14. @ Maryelle, Ted Cruz get many of his factoids from the same area that he grows his hemorrhoids.

  15. Elizabeth Moon says:

    Certainly not if you count unnecessary wars started to make money for their buddies…GWB as the fish in the barrel.

    And certainly not if you look at mass shootings in recent years, most of which have been committed by white right wing guys.

  16. Elle? Jethro was a whole lot smarter than these guys.

  17. That Other Jean says:

    I don’t waste too many tears (and there may even be a snicker or two) when some lamebrain gun nut does something stupid and hurts himself, but these idjits are quite likely to hurt someone besides themselves. How can rank stupidity while handling a gun not be against the law pretty much everywhere? Are there no laws against endangering other people? If there are, how does a sheriff seeing people holding guns with their fingers on the triggers not, at minimum, make them stop? Does somebody have to get shot first?

  18. @That Other Jean, “Does somebody have to get shot first?”

    Yes. Last month in Colorado Springs, someone called the police to report a guy walking around with guns, and was told that, since it’s an “open carry” state, there was nothing the police could do. Then he shot three people. They did something afterwards.

  19. This is just the greatest post. I’ve shared it with most of the people I know who have email. Some of whom reside in Oklahoma (“…where the wind comes sweepin’ down the plain,…”). One or two thought the post was complimentary to OK. They’d be wrong of course.
