More NRA Caused Carnage

Phoenix, AZ

#1 Jul 15, 2013
Things show no sign of stopping. So I'll just get right to it, then. Two of our entrants shot themselves while cleaning loaded guns. Six cops (or other law enforcement officers) were involved in GunFAIL incidents, ranging from shooting themselves, to shooting their partners, to shooting innocent bystanders, to leaving their guns on top of their cars and driving off. Five people who had made the choice not to venture out into the wider world nonetheless had their homes invaded by other people's bullets. There were four incidents of gun-owning Americans experiencing their FAIL while out practicing at a gun range (real or imagined). Two more incidents of celebratory gunfire which came to light (plus an amazing extra one, listed below, that I'd missed at New Year's). One shooting that took place during a session of practice on what to do if confronted by an intruder. Two shooting incidents at restaurants. And two civilian carriers who accidentally shot themselves at work.

The kid victims of GunFAIL this week were ages 2, 4, 6, 11, 16 and 16.

This week's compilation, plus two additional special events of note, appear below.
