    Post Bad: Bullet casing flew out of the stove, hitting Henderson in the stomach

    Man shot after loaded gun in stove explodes is what the headline reads but he was hit with a casing. I don't define that as being shot so I changed the title to what really happened. Gotta love the media.

    Man shot after loaded gun in stove explodes | ajc.com

    Antoine Boutte used to keep a loaded gun at the bottom of his gas stove.

    That is, until he forgot it was there early Saturday and he and another man decided to cook some food, Fulton County police said

    Boutte fired up the stove at his College Park home around 3:30 a.m. Saturday -- heating up the .40 caliber Smith & Wesson along with it, a police report said.

    While the food was cooking, the weapon’s magazine started to melt in the gun well, the police report said.

    This caused the spring – and bullets – to come out of the magazine.

    The bullets started going off like popcorn.

    Boutte’s friend, Christopher Henderson, opened the stove “to see what was happening,” the police report said.

    That’s when part of a bullet casing flew out of the stove, hitting Henderson in the stomach, police said.

    Boutte and another friend, Lisa Wells, took Henderson to Southern Regional Hospital. He was treated for his injuries, which police said were non life-threatening.

    I would think there is more to the story than was reported. Many years ago General Julian Hatcher conducted several experiments where he placed different calibers of ammo on a hotplate covered by a cardboard box and caused them to cook off. The resulting case ruptures resulting in barely penetrating the first layer paper of the box with the conclusion of not being able to cause injury. These tests can be found in his book “Hatcher’s Notebook”.

    I wonder how much alcohol was involved,if they had been drinking I would think the drive to the hospital was more of a threat than a cooked round of ammo

    That's a strange place to hide a gun.

    A few years ago a small town Police Chief baked his Glock. It failed. So much for perfection!

    That was my first thought. Why did he have his gun in the stove in the first place? Must have been pre-heating the oven, because otherwise you'd think they would see the gun in there when they put the food in. Normally pre-heat first.

    Hiding their gun in the oven I'd say. Sure, no thief would ever think to look in the oven for anything to steal. Unless it was a hungry thief !

    Not necessarily. Let's say that our brain-dead subject opens up the oven and is hit by flying brass with enough force to cut the skin (which doesn't take a lot of force if it hits just right) and cause bleeding. The combination of the presence of a gun with the small amount of blood may well have been enough for him to assume he had been shot, particularly if he was an excitable person.

    Chances are very high that these characters were pharmaceutically compromised thereby increasing excitability.

    Christopher Henderson was NOT shot ... and the GUN did NOT explode as stated in the article. What a pathetic piece of reporting!!!
    Asked by a CNN reporter "What do you feel when you shoot a terrorist"?, the Marine sniper simply shrugged & replied "recoil".

    Now more than ever, we are at war on our home soil ... WAKE UP & arm our troops when they are on home soil!
