Gregory Dale Lanier, 35, of Frostproof, Fla., told police Saturday that he and his dog were in their truck in nearby Sebring when the dog kicked a gun that was on the truck’s floor, the Highlands Tribune newspaper reported.
According to the police report, Lanier said he was driving along State Road 17 North when the dog kicked “the unloaded .380 pistol.” It went on to say that Lanier was “surprised” to learn not only that the gun was loaded, but also that it was actually a 9mm weapon, not a .380.
It is unknown if the dog had a permit to carry and the magic of an unloaded gun releasing a bullet is best left to Penn and Teller.
And there’s the Florida woman who was shot by her friend’s oven.
A young woman trying to make an evening snack ended up at the hospital Monday night after a round of ammunition exploded inside an oven, police said.
Eighteen-year-old Aalaya Walker just wanted some waffles.
What she didn’t know was that her friend Javarski “JJ” Sandy, 25, had placed a magazine from his .45-caliber Glock 21 in the oven. It’s unclear why he would do that.
Unclear? They think that’s unclear? I guess they haven’t heard about the unloaded gun being a shapeshifter and magic bullets.
Thanks to Rick for the heads up.
