    Probably should have never owned a gun in the first place.

    I don't see the problem. We should remove all warning labels & give Darwing a headache:D

    I doubt labels would matter some people just would not understand them.

    The sad fact is, yesterday he would have been arguing that owning a gun doesn't increase your chances of dying from it.

    Another unfortunate situation of a bad thigh vs a good thigh that ended with a death

    Great, now whenever I see "bad guy versus good guy" I'm going to hear a Daffy-Duck voice in my head saying "bad thigh verthuth good thigh".

    Thankth tho much.

    The only way to stop a bad guy with a gun is with a good guy with a gun.

    Both the seat-belt and steering wheel will be cleared of murder charges based upon current "Stand Your Ground" laws in the state.

    Given that he shot himself in the thigh, it was probably holstered at his side while driving. That would probably be why it says police are investigating the reason for its discharge.

    It's always the same with those having guns in the US. I agree that accidents can always happen, but I wished there would be some kind of test before actually acquiring them. If we Europeans read about things like this.. feels so weird. But well, that's probably more a cultural matter.

    If there had been a good guy with a gun to shoot and kill him before he shot himself and died then he may not have shot himself and died.

    I swear, they let just about any old buffoon have a driver's license, we ought to do something about that. Lucky he failed to run into anyone.

    Hey, it could've been worse...

    He could've had his phone on his other side, and when the phone rang he could've reached for the wrong thing and shot his head off...
