Michigan man shoots himself in the penis. "Karma's a -----"

This is not a comment on guns, just a story you don't hear every day.

http://www.examiner.com/article/michigan-man-shoots-himself-the-penis



A 45 year old man from Southfield, Michigan is recovering after shooting his own penis in a fluke accident Tuesday, June 12th. The incident took place in Birmingham, Michigan while the man was working for an unnamed air conditioning company.

It has been reported the man routinely carries a Glock pistol hidden in his pants wherever he goes, including to work. While he was adjusting the .40-caliber weapon it discharged, shooting him in the penis at around 11 a.m. - and his day was officially ruined.

He was taken to Beaumont Hospital in Royal Oak, Michigan where he was treated and underwent surgery. At this time it is unknown if the man, whose name is still not known, is still in the hospital or not.

They're considering charges of unlawful discharge (of a weapon) to add insult to injury.

2. How is this not a comment on guns?

 

Concealed carry was the problem here.

Or improper concealed carry. No proper holster.

5. He should have had more concern for his gun instead of his pistol.

9. It's been said that a gun is a substitute for a penis.

Literally true, in this guy's case.

Say goodbye to your schwanze, fuckhead.

Hope it was worth it...
