Irresponsible Gun Owner of the Day: Douglas Boxler

OK, it’s a bit of a stretch here. We don’t actually know for sure that Mr. Boxler owns a gun. But he IS a cop. OK, a police lab technician. I think it’s safe to assume Boxler is armed. He’s certainly not safe and is definitely dangerous. Law Enforcement News gives us the 911. I mean, 411. “A firearms technician with the Marion County Crime [Indiana] Lab was grazed by a ricocheting bullet Wednesday afternoon, police said. Douglas Boxler, 36, was test firing a gun in the lab in the basement of the Marion County Jail just before 2:30 p.m., said Sgt. Paul Thompson. Police said that when Boxler fired the gun, the bullet bounced back and grazed his head. Other crime lab employees performed first aid until medics arrived. Boxler was transported to Methodist Hospital in good condition. Thompson said he is expected to make a full recovery.” Save his street cred. And ego.
