Wichita police: Woman accidentally shoots self while driving

Quote:
Wichita police say a woman accidentally shot herself while handling her gun and driving down Rock Road.

The incident happened at around 12:45 p.m. Monday in the 3600 block of Rock. Police say the woman was putting her handgun back in its holster when it fired, striking her in the leg.

Sgt. Ed Brower said the woman went to a nearby FedEx for help. He said the woman was hospitalized but her injury was not life-threatening.

The woman's name was not released.
Have gun, will travel. I guess.

The NRA celebrated Martin Luther King Day with a tweet:
Quote:
"Today, the men and women of the @NRA honor the profound life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Dr. King applied for a concealed carry permit in a "may issue" state and was denied. We will never stop fighting for every law-abiding citizen's right to self-defense."
Martin Luther King was a victim of gun violence.

But was the good Reverend shot with a legally-owned weapon?

James Earl Ray was a convicted felon. He was able to purchase a Remington rifle and ammunition at a sporting goods store because of poor background checks in place at the time.

Two idiots, a man and a woman, start playing with a revolver late at night, as one does. Soon they decide to play Russian roulette, as one does, but with a slight twist. The man empties all the bullets from the cylinder, puts one back in, and spins the cylinder. Then he points the gun away and pulls the trigger. Click! The woman then picks up the gun and, apparently without giving the cylinder a spin, points it at the man and pulls the trigger. Click! Not to be outdone, the man picks up the revolver, again apparently without spinning the cylinder, points it at the woman, and pulls the trigger. No click this time. The woman suffers a gunshot to the chest and is pronounced dead at the hospital.

These untrained idiots with guns! Trained, responsible gun owners would never do such a thing!

You know where this is going, don't you? The two idiots were St. Louis City cops. In addition, the man is a former Marine and the woman had spent six years in the Army.

If only there had been a good guy with a gun there to shoot one or both of them before this tragedy. Well, there was another person at the scene, one who appears to have had a sliver of sense. But he merely chided the idiots for playing with the gun and said he wanted no part of it. He started to leave the apartment, but before getting out of the building. he heard the fatal gunshot.

This only proves that we shouldn't count on the police to protect us and that's why we should rely instead on armed amateurs. Because when the police are minutes away, there's an idiot with a gun standing right there.

Man killed by a gun sold illegally by his cousin

This is a Washington Post story, may be behind a paywall.

DC drug and gun trafficker sells gun illegally to someone, who ends up killing the dealer's cousin in a random shooting.

Trafficker got started when he was in the Marines. He would get Marines to buy guns, then report them stolen and sell them to him to be trafficked. This is how legal guns become illegal guns.

A University of Central Florida student was arrested when police discovered a fully automatic AR-15 in his vehicle at campus dorm.
Quote:
UCF police began investigating Max Bennett Chambers, 19, after receiving a tip that he possessed drop-in auto sears, which can be used to convert a semiautomatic rifle into an automatic weapon.

...

According to police, Chambers confessed to manufacturing three of the devices in December and testing one on the AR-15 earlier this month. He said he knew using the device was illegal, but said he does not like laws, according to the arrest affidavit.

From what I have read, ATF classifies an auto-sear as a machine gun in and of itself.

I believe it is the drop in auto sear that they treat that way. There are auto sears for sale all over the place.

Been studying the ElvisL1ves playbook, have you? In your case, it's forgivable. You're just parroting what the big guy says in every gun thread. Given that you've had fewer original thoughts than I've had winning Lotto tickets, that's to be expected. We can't hold you to the standard of recognizing that E saying it a lot doesn't make it any less stupid and poorly thought out.

Maybe if you buy each of the 700 types of gun that you can buy in California, you can use them as some sort of shield.

If you build a wall out of guns, then they actually are useful for defense.

So...we should collect all the guns in the US and build a border wall out of them?

oooh, that's not a bad idea. We could do a voluntary gun turn in, where every gun will get its own special place in the wall.

wonder what will win out, their hoplophilia, or their xenophobia

Think of it as a memorial, like the Vietnam one on the Mall, except it would be an actual interment site. Let the former owners put their names on each one of their dead loved ones to symbolize their sacrifice in the cause of freedom and whiteness.

Move to a state where fully automatic rifles are legal. Actually, it appears they are legal in Florida. Of course, you still have to go about it the legal way and the legal way involves a lot of $$$. A drop-in auto sear is not the way.

That's strange. It almost seems like laws have made it more difficult to get a fully automatic rifle. That can't be.

Well, thank God this woman was knowledgeable enough to keep a round in the chamber. Some of the libtard gun-grabbers don't even know that much about guns.

ooooh, sick burn.

With pathetic taunts like that, no wonder you couldn't hack it as a teacher. You'd try to pick on one of your students, and they would own you, leaving you fleeing to the teacher's lounge for a good cry.

You should go back to school and learn from the children how to be an effective bully. It seems to be your life desire, but it is simply beyond your current skill.

Under a new state law, gun owners could face criminal charges for not safely storing a gun.

Yet another proud Yankee supporter of God and the Second Amendment who was wise enough to keep a round in the chamber. The incidental injury is just part of a Sacred Hymn to the Greatness of America and Freedom.

I didn't click the link; was the shooter standing his ground? Watch the #MeToo libtards freak out because it was a male child.

From a source that is not on the other side of the country,
The woman's boyfriend told deputies he borrowed the gun for protection put the gun under a mattress because he was afraid of recent crime in the neighborhood It's unclear who the gun is registered to.
See, this registration stuff, if we could just get rid of that, it would no longer be a corncern in stories like this.

School bus driver shot in head while students aboard the bus

https://www.foxnews.com/us/minnesota...ool-bus-driver

"The suspect, identified by authorities as Kenneth W. Lilly, 31, pulls over in front of a pickup truck and school bus, then walks over to the bus and fires five rounds from his pistol, Minnesota's WCCO-TV reported. The incident occurred on Interstate 35W, just south of downtown Minneapolis.

The man in the video appeared to be wearing a security guard uniform. The suspect put his hands up when a Minnesota State Patrol trooper arrived and is arrested. Lilly was charged with attempted murder, CBS Minnesota reported."

For a given value of "fine". It's possible to not have a life-threatening wound and still be missing a chunk of one's face or skull.

So, I love to read the comments. My favorite two:

"Black people" - we don't know who the bus driver is, but the shooter is as white a person as lives in Minnesota (and those folks can be very white). See the photo in this link.

"If the school bus driver had been armed this would not have happened." - because the 78 year old driver (with one student on board) would have opened fire first when Mr Lilly pulled his weapon?

Well, the logic is unassailable. Back in the day when men could wear guns in holsters freely on the street, gun violence was NEVER a problem.

Lilly claims he was firing in self defense, even though he got out of his car and walked up to the bus.

In fairness, he apparently didn't open fire until the bus turned on its signal and started to slowly pull back into traffic.

"The suspect, identified by authorities as Kenneth W. Lilly, 31, pulls over in front of a pickup truck and school bus, then walks over to the bus and fires five rounds from his pistol, Minnesota's WCCO-TV reported. The incident occurred on Interstate 35W, just south of downtown Minneapolis.

The man in the video appeared to be wearing a security guard uniform. The suspect put his hands up when a Minnesota State Patrol trooper arrived and is arrested. Lilly was charged with attempted murder, CBS Minnesota reported."
Why isn't this in the Happy Happy Good Gun Stories thread?
(1) The hero stood his ground successfully. He's not one of these libtards who will stand aside when the caravan of terrorists arrives.
(2) He disabled the perp, but didn't kill him. The gun-grabbers won't be able to add this success story to their nasty "40,000 gun deaths and counting" narrative.
(3) The schoolchildren on the bus were able to witness American values in person. They learned more that day than in a week of libtard lies about climate change and "man is a monkey."

This does not seem correct, based on the video. The shooter stopped his car in the left lane (traffic was very slow), got out, walked around the pickup behind him, and shot at the bus. Accounts say that he fired shots before walking past the pickup, but you can definitely see at least two muzzle flashes while he is right in front of the bus. He then walks over to the door of the bus, perhaps shouts at the driver, and walks back in front of it, at which point you can see the bus start to move toward the next lane. There is traffic stacked up behind, so they were not off the road.

So apparently we have a new mass shooting in another place called Aurora.

Only five people died. It's too soon to discuss guns. Thoughts and prayers.

It's so easy to give those Republican talking points. So much harder to find the balls to stand up to the Russia/NRA lobby.
