    Walking thru door, shot in neck? Logical situation is stupid roomate with (he thought ) unloaded gun violates all safety rules at once. Points it at him, pulls trigger and pistol with no magazine goes bang.
    What to do? Get lover in trouble, no $$$. Or make up a story and maybe get $$$ go fund me, and lawyers willing to sue for chance at millions? What story fo you think this MENSA member chose?
    The Police are IMO hinting what they think happened. Emphasis on 4 rules.
    Hope his (we are supposed to use term they want) arm recovers, as well as his other injuries.
    Btw I guess I start a diet tomarrow. I don't want a chance of ending up looking like that.

    It wasn’t a lot of muscle tissue that’s for sure.

    We like to call it the law suit lotto. Fat boy and his dick head room mate have dollar signs in their eyes. They may actually win the suit in Portland but will lose their rear ends in the resulting counter suit by the gun company. I bet they blame the trigger.

    We had a state trooper here, several years ago, who pointed his Glock at his hand and pulled the trigger and was so surprised by the fact that he shot himself, he sued Glock. It was dismissed.

    Guy was a former boxer and was apparently brain-damaged. They say he once walked into a convenience store, got a Mountain Dew out of the cooler, drew his S&W 1076 and laid it in the cooler, paid and left. A little while later, while the cashier was on the phone reporting it to the state police, he drove up, walked in, put the gun back in his holster and left without a word.

    If you need a man or you need a woman that thing won't fill the role.

    I should mention. It was a known ",excuse" to find gun cleaning supplies at a suicide. Place them by deceased and it's a " accident". In the past this was not unheard of.

    The gun went off because something moved the trigger. It was pointed at this " guys" neck. ND's happen a lot with "unloaded" guns. I have been told to point a unloaded real gun at a person and pull the trigger. I refused. The instructor was kicked out.

    That was EXACTLY my first thought when I saw "his" pic. It's Pat's long lost cousin!

    So much to process with this story. First, Pat's long lost cousin, Teletubby, gets shot. then the statement about blaming the gun when it was in the hands of "his" roommate. Yeah, those hands had nothing to do with all of this, or his walnut sized brain that failed to clear a loaded weapon...

    The best part of the article;
    "After the shooting, Portland Police issued a press release encouraging gun owners to handle them safely. The Bureau’s tips included encouraging owners to always treat guns as if they were loaded, keeping fingers off the trigger and pointed away from people, and to always ensure what’s in front of and behind a target."
    Ain't nobody got time for that!!:laughabove: Maybe the one gun restriction that should be forced is the requirement to have a brain. It would work as a restriction for being a parent as well:animlol:

    Makes sense. Just like it isn’t the drunk driver’s fault. It’s the car’s fault.

    OMG, we can't follow those tips! That's what the evil NRA wants! We'd be playing right into their hands!

    Another one of those guns that just went off. Mine have never done that.

    Funny how they only do that when someone is holding them and they're loaded. Must be a coincidence.

    Also weird how people only get seriously hurt when the gun was pointed at them or in their direction. Another damn coincidence.

    Someone should figure this out and make some sort of rules for gun owners to follow to help them prevent this.:dunno:
