2nd Amendment Revocation: Dad Accidentally Shoots Self, Son Accidentally Shoots Mom

Accidentally shooting yourself: it's embarrassing and it hurts (sometimes fatally!). Accidentally shooting yourself and then your son accidentally shooting your wife: are you sure you're qualified to own a firearm?

The double shooting blunder happened in Alabama recently, as the father, Allen Jones, was retrieving his trusty Glock .40 handgun from the glove box in his truck.


As he walked back to his house, he tripped and fell, causing the gun to discharge and accidentally shoot him in the leg, just above his knee.

Because his wife Aleisha was upstairs bathing, it was his young son who was the first on the scene. And by the time Aleisha had made it downstairs the little lad was holding the weapon.

When she then tried to take the gun from the child, another round fired, this time shooting her in the left side of her neck.

Neighbours who heard the gunfire called 911 and the wounded pair were soon taken to to hospital where they're in stable condition.

Dammit Darwin, what are you, on vacation? This could have been a couple easy award recipients right here. But did you show up to give them trophies? Nooooooooo. YOU KNOW THEY'RE NOT GOING TO LEARN THEIR LESSON! Just ask the father, I dare you -- ask him what he learned. "Don't keep my gun in the glove box." SEE?!?!

Crappy local news report after the jump.

Boy accidentally shoots his mother - after dad accidentally shoots himself [asylum]

Thanks to Belpheegor, who's never shot himself unless with a cellphone camera in the mirror for a Facebook profile picture counts WHICH I THINK IT SHOULD.

There are Comments.

    Yup, nothing like using the actions of 1 moron to vilify all gun owners everywhere. Perhaps after he shot himself, it might have been a good idea to secure the weapon. Why didn't he? He's an idiot, and it got his wife shot.

    I keep a gun in my glove box. Turns out that if I keep my damn finger off the trigger it's pretty hard to shoot myself, even if I fall. He'll lie and say whatever, but guns don't just go off when you fall.
