Seattle, WA

"Guns are safe, right ?"

A woman has been arrested after she shot and killed her husband as he gave her a gun safety lesson in their home outside Philadelphia.

Michele Wanko, 42, told police that she and William Wanko, 42, had been 'casually drinking' vodka and lemonade for more than six hours when Mr Wanko took her into the basement to show her how to use his guns about 4am on Saturday.

Their two young sons, age 2 and 5, were sleeping upstairs when Mrs Wanko racked the slide on a semi-automatic pistol and shot her husband in the chest, police say.

'I can't believe you shot me!' Mr Wanko said before he collapsed, according to the Philadelphia Inquirer.

Mrs Wanko was arrested on charges of involuntary manslaughter after her husband died at a nearby hospital. She was released on bail Saturday night.
