    Woman shoots daughter with "cigarette lighter"

    A Mom Tried to Light a Cigarette with a Gun But Accidentally Shot Her Daughter Instead

    To summarize. The mom found one of those tiny .22 revolvers, probably a North American Arms judging by the photo, and thought it was a cigarette lighter. So she pulled the trigger and shot her daughter in the arm.

    Smoking is hazardous to your health. Second hand smoke can be a problem also.

    Just a little more chlorine in the gene pool and she would have been looking down the barrel checking for a spark. Why does the gummumint think that we need laws to protect stupid people from their own genetics; the younger they manage to kill themself the less the chance that they procreate.

    I wonder what kind of a cigarette she was trying to light?

    Wow, I just got the funniest visual of her doing just that.

    There are many stupid people just like that in my town.

    Gun Cigarette Lighters. They used to be really popular.
    I don't remember any of them being revolvers though.

    Angry Bad: Mom shoots daughter

    Mom accidentally shoots daughter with gun mistaken to be cigarette lighter



    A Banning woman accidentally shot her 12-year-old daughter after pulling the trigger of a miniature revolver she had mistaken for a novelty cigarette lighter, authorities said Thursday.

    Rachel Avila, 30, and her daughter were talking in front of their mobile home in the 100 block of North Phillips Street on Sunday when Avila spotted what she thought was a novelty cigarette lighter lying on the ground, said officials with the Banning Police Department.

    It was shaped like a miniature firearm, police said.

    Avila picked up the object and tried to light it by pulling the trigger, police said.

    The first time, nothing happened, but her second attempt released a 22-caliber bullet.

    Banning police officials advised residents to be wary of objects that resemble a firearm.
    "Do not handle the object, and call local law enforcement for assistance," authorities said.
    Good advice, if you do not know what it is don't mess with it.
    When you have to shoot, shoot. Don't talk.

    I've seen derringer style lighters in movies, never up close. How realistic are they?

    Let's hope nobody makes a lighter in 45 ACP.
