"responsible gun owners" is becoming another oxymoron

1. Guns don't kill people...

(You can see where I'm going with this.)

7. Does it matter?

I mean, as long as we don't blame the guns, blenders and juicers could kill people, right?

8. True

We also can't say he should be charged apparently either since he had a conceal can carry permit. I am still WTF over that.

2. I was told by a cop

 

That guns going off because they are near the oven/stove is no uncommon. People dont think about the heat and the bullet firing. Why the person in this story put ammo in the oven I have no clue.

No, really... What? How does this sound like a good idea to anyone?

Also, who makes waffles in an oven?

15. you heat the oven to keep the waffles warm until you've made enough for everyone

otherwise, some people eat cold waffles
its normal...

We toast bread and frozen waffles in the oven- on broil.

9. gun owner wasn't charged


"Sandy wasn't charged because he had a proper concealed weapons permit, The Tampa Tribune reported." What does a concealed permit have to do with recklessly storing ammunition and thus enabling someone to be shot?

14. It's usually Florida or Texas, isn't it?

The two states dumb enough to elect members of the Bush family governor grab most of the weird headlines.

People in Florida say "all the nuts roll down to Florida." Personally, I think the sauna like weather conditions down there kill brain cells, something that might also be at work in Texas.

20. So I guess that ammunition does in fact "cook off" despite claims to the contrary...

There goes that theory that gun owners claim ammunition won't cook off in a fire.

21. The oven was justified under Florida's SYG law

It was just standing its ground.

The lawyer for the waffles had no comment at this time.

Imagine putting something with explosive properties in it in a place that has heat and maybe an inflammable, gas.

she could have stood her ground against the oven, which, come to think of it, was probably black.

32. Didn't Mythbusters cover this sort of incident?

Yes, Virginia, if you get a loaded gun or its bullets hot enough, they'll cook off.

We all wonder what kind of idiot would leave a gun or bullets in the oven (for safekeeping?)

There's always someone...
