    AMHERST - A man at a Hobart Lane home who was trying to scratch his nose with the barrel end of a BB gun accidentally shot himself in the face Monday night.

    Police responded to the residence at 8:52 p.m. after the man, sitting on a bed and watching a movie, discharged a pellet up his right nostril...

    The full story can be found at; http://www.gazettenet.com/print/292850

    Note: The police are wrong.
    The injury occurred because the man is an idiot and _mishandled_ the device.
    I am scheduled to have a business meeting at 10A with the Amherst Chief of Police, as well as his lead Det. Sgt., and I am going to be sure to mention this incident and my assessment.

    Police said the injury occurred because the man didn't realize the safety was not engaged.
    No, the injury happened because the mans brain was not engaged.

    Scratching his nose with a gun (yeah, I know...just a BB gun, but...). It could have killed him...into the eye, etc.

    I'm surprised Amherst PD didn't arrest him. Seriously.
