NRA gun instructor misses protest because (wait for it) he shot himself in the foot

This reminds of Gun Appreciation Day. National Rifle Association instructor Eugene Kenny could not join his fellow gun-rights supporters at the state Capitol Wednesday because he accidentally shot himself in the foot. Literally. Kenny is a 49 year-old licensed National Rifle Association instructor who leads training classes in pistol and rifle use.










Kenny said, “I usually always cock it back and it usually ejects a shell that’s in the chamber. You pull the trigger to release the slide … This time there was a cartridge in there. And BANG! Hit my ankle.”

Watch (how could you not?)

New Haven Independent reports, “Vazquez said his detectives are also still investigating the theft of a safe last November from Kenny’s apartment. It contained around 10 guns—mostly handguns, plus a Saiga 12 rifle. “I took a hit, $8,000 worth of firearms” in that theft, Kenny said.”

Is it bad that I’m laughing? Oh well.

    Well it sure is a shame. The desire of the righteous is only good; but the expectation of the wicked is wrath. The liberal soul shall be made fat; and he that watereth shall be watered also himself. Call me what ever you want. You know your wrong.

      your wrong what?

    Licensed NRA instructor? Well, what better example of a “responsible gun owner” could there be?

    This responsible gun owner is now responsible for 10 illegal firearms out on the streets. Great going, NRA guy.

    Why am I not surprised at any of this? Afterall, look who is the NRA spokesperson preceded by a crazed Charlton Heston; Look at their board – the owner of Baretta, Tom Selleck , Nutjob pedophile Nugent – and look at the rabid minority that hangs on every word of propaganda they put out…
    (Rabid may be too soft of an adjective)…’nuff said

    Is that one of those good guys with a gun who is going to save us from a bad guy with a gun?

  • George Post

    The irony of this is, currently, as I scroll down, I see an article complaining about hateful rants by GOPers against the gay community. Oh, that’s right, gays tend to vote Democrat, and too many gun-owners tend to be right-wing. No bias there.

    • Tim Crowley

      Did a gay guy shoot himself in the foot? I’m a gun owner. I call for responsible gun ownership. I’m a hetrosexual in a “traditional marriage” for 27 years. I call for marriage equality. I use logic and reason to come to my decisions in life. The rabid right use fear and hate to rule them.

  • George Post

    “Is It bad that I’m laughing?” It is if you complain about the GOP being against gay marriage. It’s hypocritical.

  • Freefall

    Poor guy. But in this case, I’m pleased he polished his protest tactic BEFORE he went to protest. “Dude, don’t stand next to ME! I’m not with you on this!”

    Lesson: Don’t try anything with firearms until you fully come down off the cra*k high.

    {And how about how dude talks about Bushmaster like it was the stuff! smdh fp!…9,9`sigh}

    Did you here about the member of Mayors against Gun Violence arrested for rape and threatening a little boy with a gun?

  • ravencat13

    This guys says after releasing the slide, there was a round in the chamber. Only way THTA could have happened.. was if he LEFT THE MAGAZINE IN.
    And he’s a NRA – sanctioned firearms instructor?
    What a dumbass.
