    Man Shoots Self While Teaching Firearms Safety

    James Looney Died Of Gunshot Wound To Head

    POSTED: 9:56 pm CDT September 21, 2009


    IMPERIAL, Mo. -- An eastern Missouri man is dead after accidentally shooting himself while teaching firearms safety to his girlfriend.

    KSDK-TV reported that 40-year-old James Looney, of Imperial, died of a gunshot wound to the head.

    The shooting happened Friday. Jefferson County Sheriff Glenn Boyer told the station that according to witnesses, Looney was demonstrating how to use the different safety mechanisms on several guns. Witnesses told authorities that Looney would put the guns to his head, ask his girlfriend if she thought the gun would go off, then pull the trigger.

    The safety mechanisms worked for the first two guns. But the third gun fired. Looney died Saturday at a hospital.

    Imperial is south of Saint Loius... yea, like Arkansas with baseball.

    The good news is the lesson was likely a success. The girlfriend will NEVAAAR be unsafe around firearms.

    More than likely she'll be so traumatized that she'll never touch a gun again and tell everyone she talks to about how dangerous they are. An anti with a sob story to tell :ugh:

    I'd be so angry were it not for the fact that there is truth to this. I'm asian though, so I'm going to tell myself that this does not apply to me.

    Gun registration and regulation would have prevented this gun from killing this man in cold blood.
