Hometown Idiocy

I share this story, because it’s incredibly sad and from my hometown, Tuscaloosa, Alabama:

Man Shoots Wife in Bed While Preparing for Deer Season

From the time I first picked up a BB gun, I have known that there are four rules for safely handling a firearm:

  1. All guns are always loaded!
  2. Never let the muzzle cover anything you are not willing to destroy!
  3. Keep your finger off the trigger until your sights are on the target!
  4. Always be sure of your target!

Even if I was absolutely aware that a gun was unloaded (see rule#1), there is ABSOLUTELY NO WAY IN HELL that I would point that firearm at my wife, son, father, mother, grandmother, aunt, uncle, cat, dog, fish, mailman, or anything else that I wasn’t intending to destroy.

Either this rube is incredibly stupid, or there’s a lot more to this story that hasn’t been flushed out yet.
