19. Funny how so many people 'checking to see if it was loaded'
Edited on Mon Feb-01-10 02:49 AM by AtheistCrusader
end up somehow, with 360 degrees of possibilities in 3 dimensions to discharge the weapon in, manage to end up shooting someone in the face.

Getting shot in the hand/face is what is known as a defensive wound, meaning, the victim tried to protect himself.

Someone needs to go to jail for this. Possibly multiple someones, depending on how the shooter managed to get posession of the firearm.
