Remember: Guns Don't Shoot People...

Cats shoot people:

A man cooking in his kitchen was shot after one of his cats knocked his 9mm handgun onto the floor, discharging the weapon, Michigan State Police said.

Let's see... how many gun safety practices did this guy ignore:

  • Loaded gun in a non-shooting situation
  • A round chambered
  • Safety off (presumeably)
  • Gun not stored out of sight
  • Gun not secured
  • Gun left where a third untrained party can access it.

Yep, that pretty much covers all of them, at least that I can think of. That wasn't the sound of a bullet he heard, it was the sound of a Darwin award.

Us? We don't have any guns. Our evil minions have to resort to cruder methods of murder, like weaving back and forth through legs while we walk down stairs. Ron, on the other hand...

And knowing how our evil minions work, I've made bloody well sure that any firearms I have are certainly unloaded, have the safeties on anyway, aren't cocked, have the ammo stored in such a manner that it's safe, and have the actual arms themselves happily hidden away...

I will not be Darwined by our cats. At least, not with one of my own firearms...
