As we’re sure you know, guns are tools. Unlike the bleats blurted by the panty-wetters, they’re not designed to kill – they’re designed to shoot. But that doesn’t mean a gun can’t be used for other purposes, too. When you’ve shot your last round and there’s still a bad guy bearing down on you, a long gun makes a pretty fair club. And while we wouldn’t do it, you could probably use that Vaquero to drive a nail or two in a pinch. But just cause you’re using your gun for something other than shooting doesn’t mean those four rules go out the window . . .
Which, according to newslite.tv, is something an un-named Canuck forgot when his campsite developed a mouse problem. He grabbed his gun, intending to apply rifle (butt) to rodent.
The man was reportedly intending to crush the rodent with the weapon at a camp on Anjigami Lake in Ontario, but didn’t know the gun was loaded.
Those darned bullets get ‘em every time, don’t they? When he lunged at the mousey, his gun – which was pointed back up at his forehead – went bang.
As such he got quite a shock when the gun fired, with the bullet grazing his forehead but luckily not causing too much damage.
Police say the man was admitted to and released from the hospital, before being charged with careless use of a firearm.
Unfortunately, we don’t know the wounded Canadian’s name. So if you north-of-the-border types will keep an eye out for a guy with a brand new part in his hair, we’d appreciate it. We’d like nothing more than to send him the IGOTD hardware he’s earned and to find out low long it took for the mouse to stop laughing.
