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.
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.
