Truck-Shooting sootch00: Irresponsible Gun Owner of the Day

This video is instructive. Here’s what happens when you mistake your sight picture for your barrel position. It could’ve been worse. Don’t be that guy. Don’t be me. But that’s not the way sootch00 plays it. Despite the “look ma, no brains” mea culpa at the start, this video celebrates his ballistic stupidity with good ‘old boy bravado. “Things happen from time to time,” his non-plussed sidekick opines. Now I’m not saying every YouTube shooting video has to be educational. But this one should be. As the man behind Armed Citizens United (ACU) Gun Rights Organization, sootch00 should have leveraged this view count magnet to explain the mistake and promote gun safety. Not parade the lack thereof.

“A gun rights advocate in Florida was seriously wounded on Tuesday when her 4-year-old son shot her in the back from the back seat of her vehicle,” Inside Edition reports. “According to police, Jamie Gilt was discovered shot in her truck when a deputy noticed she was acting frantically. When the deputy approached Gilt, she told him she was shot by her young son.” Ms. Gilt is recovering, but the anti-gun rights jihadis are just getting started. They’re incensed because Ms. Gilt was publicly pro-gun. While I hate to give aid and comfort to the enemies of firearms freedom . . .
