Oh Yeah, Right. Man Shoots Dog, No Headlines. Dog Shoots Man, Top of the Fold.

Here ya go.

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.

The gun went off, shooting Lanier in the leg, Sebring police said.

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.

  1. I am so tired about hearing about how responsible gun-owners are. Not only should there be a background check – but an IQ test may be in order.

  2. Lorraine in Spring says:

    Anyone involved in any of these moronic incidents should not be allowed to own a gun in the future. Period. They’ve already proven they are not reaponsible gun owners. No second chances with deadly weapons – 2nd Admendment or not. That’s why bad drivers eventually lose their licenses and people with some diseases like TB are reported to the CDC – they are a danger to public safety.

  3. it perfectly clear that the real question of this entire mess is if she “just wanted some waffles”, why in hell was she using the oven?

    this is entirely the fault of the school system.
    oh yeah! florida. that’s redundant. never mind!

    the dog thing is bs. this guy shot himself goofing around with the gun and isn’t man enough to admit it.

  4. The dog has just been elected the next executive vice president of the NRA.

  5. Can’t we just have a few states secede and put all the stupid gun lovers there? Anyone who “accidentally harms another person or him/herownself with a gun or ammunition will be automatically banned to such states. Dick Chenney can be the governor.

  6. He didn’t know the gun was loaded.
    He didn’t know it was a 9mm and not .380.
    He probably also doesn’t know his dog hates those crappy 50# bags of generic nuggets he buys to save a couple of bucks, and that his dog can in fact, aim.

  7. Of greater importance, don’t allow Truman near your weaponry when he is in the vicinity of Republicans! This should go without saying but in the interest of public safety I’m thinking this is a message Bloomberg might consider incorporating in his next campaigns.

    Not wishing to appear guilty of speciesism, I have have spoken with my cat about this and we have locked the weaponry up to prevent any mishaps should the critter sniff out any varmints he disagrees with.

  8. “Lanier wasn’t seriously injured, said Sebring Police Cmdr. Steve Carr, who actually said police didn’t arrest the dog because the investigation was pending.”

    Arrest the dog???

    For what? Not wearing a seat belt?

  9. I thought Umpty was kidding – so I read the article. Sebring is actually dumber than Ted Cruz Country.

  10. We recently had a massive manhunt in Southern California. The bad guy was an ex-cop going after cops and others. During the hunt the police–trained in the use of weapons–shot up two trucks that vaguely resembled that of the bad guy. They put 102 bullet holes in a truck that wasn’t even the same model. They did this before checking who was driving–it was a 70 year old woman delivering newspapers, with her daughter in the passenger seat (both will be okay).

    And these are the guys with training.

  11. I can imagine it now: Cuff the dog and make it do a perp walk in front of the cameras.

  12. Why is it that I, who hate guns and don’t own any, know more about gun safety than these cretins?

    I’m with Cheryl, and will suggest to our good Maryland Governor O’Malley that fingerprinting and evidence of gun training are not enough– we also need an IQ test.

    (Numerous people have to be fingerprinted, in Maryland at least, including jockeys and palm readers, so that should be no hardship for whiny gun owners.)

  13. I read both these stories the other day, and comments on both were just like the ones here – the hilarity of stupidity was the truckguy and his dog – what a moran -however,

    the QUESTION that kept coming up repeatedly was:


    Thanks for playing~

    I assumed it was Eggos, and the toaster was broken.

  15. Here’s another story from Birmingham, Alabama

    Birmingham police officers were on patrol in north Birmingham when they observed three employees from a trucking company chasing a trespasser from their property.

    The officers interrupted the chase and took guns away from the employees. While trying to remove the bullets from a gun, the officer opened the cylinder and the gun fell apart. That portion of the gun hit the ground and discharged, striking another officer in the leg.

  16. Corinne Sabo says:

    I bet he used to tell the teacher the dog ate his homeowrk. My dog says no self-respecting dog would shoot anyone.

  17. I’m guessing the dog overheard conversation regarding neutering….

    Looks like we’ll have to hold the Darwin Awards twice this year.

  19. TexasEllen, They’re gonna need bigger awards ceremony.
