Another meathead for the Darwin Awards

As someone who has gone through all the rigmarole to legally own pistols, I have no sympathy for this wannabe, who has shot himelf through the head accidentally! Good friggin' riddance!

These CRIMINALS who own illicit firearms stuff things up for the many thousands of law-abiding firearms users in NZ, indeed- worldwide.

"Detective Inspector Mike Arnerich said the investigation had centred on the forensic evidence from the crime scene, post mortem, witnesses and confidential information from criminals.
He said: "We are satisfied that Mr Hogg shot himself. Although he was confident with firearms, he did not have a very good operational knowledge of them and he thought the 9mm Browning semi-automatic pistol was unloaded, when in fact it was not."

Should have stuck to softball BB guns, then.

When catapults are outlawed only the outlaws will have catapults.

Simply demonstrating that poblem is older than handguns. You can't legislate against stupidity.

I couldn't quite suppress a snort of amused disbelief when I heard this story - because I knew what you'd have to say. And the gene pool breathes a collective sigh of relief... ;-)
