Where we know how to shoot ‘um up.

  • PALESTINE, TX, 1/16/13: According to The Palestine Herald, the victim, identified as 31-year-old Edgar Torres of Palestine, was treated for a wound to the right side at Palestine Regional Medical Center around 9 PM Wednesday. Investigators learned that the victim was looking at a handgun that he was going to buy in the 400 block of Cherokee Street when he allegedly accidentally shot himself in the side.
  • KILLEEN, TX, 1/16/13: Heffernan, Tennyson and a third man were in the living room of Heffernan’s home in the 3500 block of Pebble Drive on Jan. 16 when the shooting occurred. An arrest affidavit stated Heffernan had been cleaning a Taurus revolver when the gun fired and struck Tennyson in the head. Police confiscated the weapon and noted in the affidavit that with the chamber closed, bullets were clearly visible.
  • PFLUGERVILLE, TX, 1/18/13: Pflugerville police are investigating a gun range shooting that sent one man to the hospital Friday night. According to police, the man shot himself at Red’s Indoor Range , located at 1908 W Pecan.

And in the That’s Her Story and She’s Sticking To It Department of Female Revenge:

MYAKKA CITY, FL, 1/26/13: The fiancé was firing a Taurus Model 1911 .45 when a casing ejected and landed inside her shirt. She tried to keep the hot casing off of her by bending over and trying to swat the casing out, but when she did, she unknowingly pointed the gun down at the victim’s leg and accidentally fired another round.

Thanks to Brian C for the heads up.

  1. Where’s the NRA when you need them? Don’t they say they promote gun safety?
    You can’t cure stupid. *sigh*

  2. @Jan…

    Some stupidity cures itself.. the folks in the article are proof! :)

  3. Well, well, well, lookey here: our very own replacement for Snowbilly Grifter – straight out of the wealthiest county in Tennessee and gerrymandered around Nashville up to the 101st Airborne Air Assault where the Troops she does not support hate her guts for 7-8 deployments to her fantasy war where Rill Merikkans GunZ Get ShotZ daily:


    You cannot make this stupidity of Evangelibagging RePigs up~YIKES

  4. Be patient. The Darwin Principle is at work here. Get you some popcorn and sit back and watch.

    Wooo boy, an’ we just arrived in El Paso yesterday…better keep our heads down…thanks for the update JJ!

    Dave & Mickie

  6. Bud Malone says:

    I wonder what those old timers, living the wild west scene, would think of these tenderfoot rookie gun handlers? Much ribald laughter, I’m sure.

  7. They did it! They made my day.

  8. Darwin at work again, but he needs to work on his aim.

  9. Sam in Kyle says:

    Q: How many NRA members does it take to change a light bulb?

    A: More guns.

    And was it a low cut Tee the woman was wearing when the hot spent shell casing fell in amongst her Pair? Maybe she should wear a turtleneck next time. Better still, wear two.

    ‘Cause that would be

    Two turtlenecks or
    a Cartridge in the Pair’s Tee.

  11. @daChipster – LOL :) very nicely done!

  12. I wonder how many of these idiots will make it on the list for Darwin Awards for 2013. Perhaps we should just sit back, grab the popcorn, and just watch these gun-huggers off themselves!

    daChipster … that was the best laugh I’ve had all day! Thank you!!

  13. @Marcia,

    They are not eligible for Darwin Awards because they must take themselves out of the genepool with their own stupidity and these are woundings only.

    However, they might be eligible for what my friends and I called the Golden Lemming Awards, like Darwin Awards but lacking the death…just folks we thought should have been taken out of the genepool for their display of gull and stupidity…of course, that would now cover just about every Republican to ever grace Juanita’s postings.

  14. Corinne Sabo says:

    The hot cartridge couldn’t be gotten out any other way?

  15. Steven Hernandez says:

    What’s your point? If it is to show how accidents happen or how stupid people have accidents then might I refer you to any traffic report or quite a few beauty shops?

  16. You can get the Darwin Award without dying if you take yourself out of the breeding population. We need more of these dangerous doofuses to shoot themselves in the (sorry, mama).

  17. I have said before that NRA members are the perfect example of an evolutionary dead end. Just give ‘em time – it won’t be too many more generations.

  18. daChipster says:

    The great thing about the Darwin awards is, you don’t have to believe in Darwin, but he believes in you.

  19. I think this is my favorite, although it must have been terrifying for the victims, think Keystone Cops with an AK47
