Fun With Guns: Hooters Will Do That To Ya Edition

March 16, 2014 By: Juanita Jean Category: Uncategorized

San Antonio, Texas.  That’s where I was this weekend.

A 25-year-old Odessa man accidentally shot himself after he left a Downtown restaurant.

The man had been at Hooters near Alamo Plaza and was in his car and trying to load a 45-automatic weapon in his lap. The gun accidentally discharged. The bullet went through the man’s thigh and came through his knee.

This is how you make compassion turn to snickers:

He’s gonna have a lifetime of explaining that limp, ya know.  “Well, it started at Hooters and ended at Dumbassville.”

Thanks to Larry for the heads up.

    There’s stoopid, then there’s gohmert st00pid. Loading a gun in his lap, shoots through thigh and knee, but it could have been worse.

  2. Yeah, could have been worse– he could have taken the thing loaded into Hooters and shot somebody else. Why he needed it in the first place is an open question.

  3. Those Hooters waitresses must have scared the bejesus out of him, so he felt the need for protection.

  4. Mark Johnson says:

    I’m afraid his story about how he shot himself doesn’t pass the smell test. Can’t imagine why he might suddenly need to load his firearm after a visit to the Hooters fine dining establishment. Far more likely that he was trying to unload his, er, gun, and it went off prema … uh, accidentally. You know how excited those NRA guys get when they are handling a loaded weapon.

  5. UmptyDump says:

    The more these guys go around protecting their Second Amendment rights, the sooner they’ll be extinct.

  6. This is an example of an issue I have with the gun rights crowd. They have this fantasy that the answer to all the world’s problems is more guns. There seems to be this implicit assumption that every gun owner knows what they are doing and that all gun owners are by definition rational actors.

    Best quote ever. I will be stealing this.

  8. Mark Johnson — HA! HA! Thanks! Nope, doesn’t pass the smell test.

  9. Listen, the 2nd Amendment explicitly states that you have the RIGHT to visit Hooters and then shoot yourself in the thigh and knee while attempting to load a .45 automatic weapon. At least that’s what the NRA tells me.

  10. stick to revolvers, they are safer

  11. Ralph Wiggam says:

    So he left Hooters and went to his car to fondle his gun. Now that wouldn’t be so bad if he had just left his weapon at home.

  12. e platypus onion says:

    The stain from this accidental discharge will be harder to explain and dryclean than the alternative stain would have been. At least there is only one major artery in his thigh.

  13. Teh Gerg says:

    The right to defend one’s self against one’s self strikes again.

  14. Kate Dungan says:

    Hooters or Shooters?

  15. Marge Wood says:

    Good grief.

  16. Polite Kool Marxist says:

    Holy Gohmerts! Who knew? Reflecting on the fun with gun moments, there appears to be a secret desire among the NRA nuts to become eunuchs. Guns in pants, guns in lap, guns anywhere but a proper holster, all things that no sane man fond of his gohmerts would do.

    e platypus onion, if this gohmert shot himself through the thigh to the knee and those pants are still worth dry cleaning, WTG. Guess he was lucky not to have shot himself in the ankle.

  17. I have just finished viewing the second installment of Dr. Tyson’s “Cosmos”. It was all about evolution and how because of our DNA we are connected to all life, including trees. And frankly, a tree is way the hell smarter than some jerk who would try to load a gun in his lap! He must have had himself a snootful at Hooters along with his lunch!

  18. BarbinDC says:

    @Maggie: I just finished watching this, too, cuz I luv me some NDT. However, I just hate, hate, hate all those commercial breaks. I’m used to seeing this stuff on PBS and I am so spoiled.

  19. I feel about guns much the way the actress Mrs. Patrick Campbell felt about displays of affection:

    “I don’t care what they do, so long as they don’t do it in the street and frighten the horses.”

    People who want guns for their own personal use on their own property and in areas designed for guns should have that right. Public property is a whole different ball game and other people have the right not to be surrounded by guns.

  20. Braxton Braggart says:

    You mean “limp” as in walking, right?

  21. BarbininDC: I’m with you on all those commercials. This may be the one thing that keeps Cosmos and Tyson from an Emmy. I loved the way Tyson got into random and selected and evolution by using dogs, man’s best friend.

  22. daChipster says:

    Officer, I needed protection. I walked into this place and she pointed her 38s at me and said my 9 millimeters wasn’t big enough.

  23. daChipster, I almost choked when I read yours!

    My first thought was “lap dance.” Using a gun to make yourself lap dance isn’t my idea of a good time.

  24. Holy Gohmerts, This man was lucky his family jewels did not get in the way! Maybe not, we do not need to procreate more of these NUTTY NRA vigilante gun loving 2nd amendment low information scared radical right wingers!

  25. e platypus onion says:

    daChipster-don’t leave us hanging here. Was she full figured or ambidextrous? Inquiring onions want to know.

  26. e platypus onion says:

    PKM-I was just contemplating the relative merits of different stains. OTOH a stain was almost enough to impeach a president. Imagine a country that worried enough about whether the Potus was taking care of affairs-which is what his job entails,but not enough about stains that might clear some poor sucker on death row.Only in ‘murrica!

  27. daChipster says:

    e p onion: Can’t she be both? In fact, she was buxom, ambidextrous AND double jointed. When I first met her, she was dancing at the Crystal Pistol in Amarillo under the name Bunny Lapin (did I mention bi-lingual?) but now she goes by Alberta Haboob because she is bi-polar and blows hot and cold.

  28. e platypus onion says:

    I’ll say she is talented,daChipster! LMAO

  29. @BarbinDC: I tape Cosmos and then watch the tape. That way I get to enjoy NDeGT sans commercials, which seem to be all Jeep, Boeing, and I forget what else.
