Missouri Man Teaching Girlfriend About Gun Safety Shoots Himself in the Head
Tuesday, September 22, 2009

On Fox News:

A Missouri man reportedly shot himself in the head accidentally while teaching his girlfriend about gun safety.

According to witnesses James Looney was insistent on giving his girlfriend a personal lesson in firearm safety Friday before taking her to a shooting range, MyFOXMemphis reported.

As part of the tutorial, Looney demonstrated different safety features on several firearms then put the guns to his head and asked if they would fire, Jefferson County Sheriff told the station. The third gun actually went off.

The 40-year-old was pronounced dead at a local hospital the next morning the same day he was to take his girlfriend to the range, the station reported.

End Story

Geeze, the first rule of gun safety is to NEVER point a gun, loaded or unloaded, at a person (unless you are intending to shoot). That rule should be obvious to include YOURSELF!

Here's hoping the girlfriend wasn't carrying or caring for his kid.

Even his surname suggests that he wasn't well in the head...
