We can't help but think about incidents like this as we are told over and over about our gun zombies telling us how very safe they think they are.
And then we have some idiot shooting up a WalMart bathroom when he drops trew to poo.  Or some idiot shooting at a mouse in his kitchen in Utah, and gravely wounding his roommate in the bathroom on the other side of the wall.

Man Shoots Himself In Penis, Then Gets Cuffed!

tavares Donnell colbert man shoots himself in genitals oklahoma

Tavares Donnell Colbert (pictured) of Oklahoma City, Okla. accidentally shot himself in the penis with the same gun he planned on selling at a convenience store, NewsOK reports.
Police were called to the local hospital on Saturday morning where they found Colbert bleeding from his self-inflicted gunshot wound.
The unfortunate fella told cops that he bought the gun in Kansas and planned on selling it in a convenience store parking in the city. Before arriving at his destination, Colbert pulled over into a parking lot to check if the gun was working properly.
It was. As Colbert, 36, pulled it out of the case, he accidentally squeezed the trigger and pop himself dead smack in the Johnson

You have to admit - if we closed the gun show / private transaction loophole, this is one gun shot hole that wouldn't be happening, because there wouldn't be this kind of casual gun sale in convenience store parking lots by idiots.
This guy wasn't only a menace to himself, but to others around him as well.  See why some of us deplore you gun nuts who think you're so damned safe when you're not?  In some places, any old idiot is allowed a gun, competent or not.  I for one prefer not to test the theory of Social Darwinism / the Darwin awards in action, or Murphy's Law if you like that theorem better.
