In a combination of worst bowler of the year, and most irresponsible gun owner, a man accidentally shot himself in the leg while bowling at around 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, according to police. The bowling ball and the man’s loaded gun came into contact which caused the gun to fire.

According to witnesses the man had been carrying a gun in the pocket of his shorts.

Jim Miller said, “The guy just stepped up to bowl. think he hit his leg on his back swing.” Because the direction one is swinging the bowling ball is the most relevant factor here?

Another witness Mike Martin said, “The ball hit him in the leg, which triggered the revolver.”

WPBF.com reports, “Police have not identified the victim, but witnesses said he limped back to his seat, holding his leg. His injuries were not considered to be life-threatening.”

Another witness Debra Dean said, “Everybody kind of stopped. We were way down on this end. Everybody was looking, and all of a sudden you can tell something wasn’t right.”

The bowler was taken to the hospital to be treated for his self-inflicted injuries.

    Seriously, can we agree that this idiot should have his gun rights revoked? His guns should be confiscated and his name added to the flagged list for background checks.

      i agree, every responsible gun owner knows that you dont keep your gun loaded under any circumstances if it has a hammer, and if it is a revolver you keep it “ready” over an empty chamber

    If this wasn’t a growing epidemic it would be pretty funny.

    Do we have to start arming bowling balls now?

    Too bad the bullet didn’t hit him a bit higher up. Hey NRA, how many shootings are we going to read about before even you admit that unlimited concealed carry is a BAD idea?

      so you wish to turn the clock back to 1986 where 1/3 of the entire USA did not allow it under any circumstances, another 1/3 allowed it only under special circumstances, with only one state having “unlimited” CCW. thats fine, as long as you’re fine with doubling the firearm violent crime rate and more than doubling non firearm related violent crime, the numbers dont lie the less restrictive the firearms laws have gotten the lower the rate of firearm violent crime and overall violent crime rate. the two largest massacres happened smack dab in the middle if the last national weapons ban. and why would you wish pain on someone, you disgust me.

        I haven’t seen any stories about the heroic efforts of gun owners stopping crimes in progress, have you? I’ve seen idiots killing themselves…..Wounding themselves…..and a ton of children killing themselves or each other. Your statistics are BS and fail to show any causal relationship.

        That’s the biggest pile of ‘bullschitt’ I’ve read in a while. Not even Fox has come up with anything that rediculous. You sir, are the disgusting one.
