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.
Stolen shamelessly from Ms Laffy at Political Carnival.
