Come on Texas, you can do better than this.
A Florida man has been sent to prison for six years and five months after he shot up a strip club toilet while taking a selfie. In December, patrons of Club Lust in St Petersburg, in America's Sunshine State, were startled to hear the sound of gunfire in the men's bathroom. A .40 caliber round shattered one of the mirrors in …
"He's lucky it didn't go off in his pocket then..."
IS2R some old British Army joke about a serviceman keeping a souvenir weapon he had acquired on manoeuvres which, due to his lack of familiarity with the model, went off in his pocket neatly severing the top of his manhood.
He was drummed out of the army, of course, not for keeping the weapon or any subsequent negligence but because "everyone knows you have to be a complete knob to be in the British Army"
It gets better when you think about, not only is he challenged about the gun but he then fails to get rid of it when he must of known of his inability to carry one. I mean who honestly believes they can fire a gun in the toilets causing damage and the owners aren't going to call the police?
On the other hand, the friend he borrowed the firearm from might not have cared to have the gun discarded. Given its illegal source, it probably wasn't cheap. The risk of having the police find him with the gun might have been less than having the friend blame him for getting away without it.
"anti-gun-safety-activist" could be read both ways.
I initially thought what is an anti-gun, safety, activist doing with a gun?". That's odd - what is someone who objects to guns doing with a gun?
But not quite as stoopid as an anti "gun-safety" activist. Someone who objects to gun safety, not to guns. Oh well, fully deserving of Darwins, although, at 60, one fears Harmon might have already polluted the gene pool.
I've shot a Star Firestar 9mm,.... don't recall it being particularly compact, it resembles a 1911, just a little shorter, so it's got a hammer, and a back strap, not features I'd look for for CC, I'd opt for something a bit smoother. It was however a pretty good pistol, my colleague and I shamed some Police 'marksmen' with one, they were full of bravado, but using 6" S&W .44 revolvers, way overpowered for taking on two geeky IT bods target shooting.
Last time I checked, & I admit that was back when I could still see so designs could have changed since then, but the two were shaped *NOTHING* alike.
How inebriated, incapacitated, or idiotic (or all three) do you have to be in order to confuse the two?
TFA doesn't mention if the cops found a Selfie Stick among the things in his pockets, so if he didn't have one then this becomes even more mind numbingly moronic.
I think you'll find there were more significant factors involved, such as the gentleman in question not being white. Although that's more of an excuse than the actual law , to be fair.
 For now. Expect the tangerine twat's executive order prohibiting black people from owning Dodge Chargers at any moment.
"The plod did a background check and found that Sorn had been prior convictions for home burglary and attempted first-degree murder, and as such wasn't allowed to own a firearm."
The good news is there is nothing to worry about. Apparently this guy wasnt allowed to own a firearm by law. And according to the serial number the gun couldnt have been there as it would have to illegally cross state lines. So we can feel good about that at least.
A co-worker said that one of his brothers in law once did in his parents' toilets. The brother in law claimed accidental discharge, the father suspected that the guy thought he was dry snapping and didn't know that there was a round in the chamber. And Auberon Waugh's (speaking of firearm incompetence) autobiography mentions a fellow officer doing in a toilet in Cyprus.
A late friend of mine had a careless discharge while practicing drawing his new .38 spl snubby. Unlike his Browning Hi Power it was double action (yes he should have unloaded it the twat) and he shot a hole in the mirror he was practicing in front of. Unfortunately for him the mirror was on the end of a long built in wardrobe and he nailed every coat, suit, jacket, trousers and shirt he owned plus half his wife's clothing.
He was normally very careful with guns but ..... Cost him an arm and a leg when wife upgraded her replacement clothes.
That has to be mis-information. There are no laws against moving a firearm from state to state. There may be restrictions based upon the type and state law such as magazine capacity, or bullet buttons, etc, but that would just about be it. Typically pistols don't fall under this category except large capacity automatics.
I'm guessing they're referring to an interstate sale. Generally you can transport your own gun across state lines. Shipping a handgun to a buyer in another state is another deal altogether. Not sure about driving across state lines to sell to another person directly, but suspect that's no kosher either...
"Sorn explained that he didn’t realize the gun was loaded,"
Ahhh. He needs to go back to firearm safety classes.
4 rules of gun safety:
1) The Gun Is Always Loaded
2) Always Be Sure Of Your Target And What Is Behind It
3) Never Point The Gun At Something You Are Not Prepared To Destroy
4) Keep Your Finger Off The Trigger Until You're Ready to Fire
But they are looking up your ass. I mean what harm has been done here really? They can put right to the bullet hole and who cares if he has some Xanax and MJ. People should be allowed to take drugs if they want to, and those two drugs rea relatively safe used in moderation.
Worlds policeman gone mad.
