Graphic video is circling on social media after a relatively stupid boy decided he’d play with a gun. Clearly trying to make himself out to be some kind of badass, he decided to point it at his head with his finger on the trigger — and he quickly realized just how big of a mistake he’d made.
A young man recently got his hands on a revolver and decided to take it out for a test run with what is presumed to be a friend. Unfortunately for the two idiots, this consisted of one holding a camera while the other pointed it at his head – but things only get worse from there.
Deciding to play it on the dangerous side, the moron thought it would be funny to carelessly wave the gun around. Making for quite the dangerous scenario, the boy’s finger was on the trigger, but it’s unclear if he realized that the gun was actually loaded.
As if that wasn’t bad enough, the wannabe badass topped it all off by pointing the gun near his skull and pulling the trigger. With the first chamber apparently empty, the hammer dropped and resulted in a “click.” Thinking it was rather funny, the smile wearing clown then did the same – except things went a bit different this time.
The gun went off while it was aimed at his head, resulting in the bullet striking him. Pictures would later show that this boy was actually rather lucky as the bullet merely grazed his skull, resulting in two sets of stitches for the entry and exit wounds.
This is why I always urge people to follow the three simple rules of gun safety to ensure nothing like this every happens:
- Never point a gun at something you’re not willing to destroy.
- Always handle a gun as if it is loaded.
Never place your finger on the trigger until you’re ready to shoot.
Had this moron followed any of these rules, things wouldn’t have turned out the way they did. Hopefully, he learned a valuable lesson. Next time, his big mistake could cost him a bit more than a trip to the hospital for a few stitches.
This is exactly why gun safety is so important and why some need to start paying more attention to it. Unfortunately, the world is full of morons like this who inevitably give ammunition to gun grabbers. With that being said, be smart – don’t point a gun at your head.
