    EDEN It looks like the cat will beat the rap.

    The Rockingham County Sheriff's Office said a 24-year-old Eden man blamed his cat for shooting him earlier today.

    According to the sheriff's office, Charlie Busick told deputies that he was alone in his Ashley Loop Road home when his cat jumped up onto a loveseat and onto his .45-caliber pistol.

    The gun went off, and Busick was shot in his left hip. Deputies said Busick called a friend to take him to a local hospital.

    Later, the sheriff's office said, Busick changed his story. He told deputies that when he went to stand up, he placed his left hand down on the loveseat. His thumb accidentally hit the trigger and caused the gun to go off.

    The cat, he added, had nothing to do with the shooting.

    The must have cat flipped off the Paw Safety.

    Remember your safe gun handling rules. Always keep your claws off of the trigger.


    Don't you all think it was pretty dadblamed low of this guy to blame his pet for his negligent discharge?

    What a moron to have a cocked and unlocked 45 just laying around on the furniture. And to try to blame it on the cat is just downright pathetic. He's lucky he's not speaking with a higher octave.

    We need to add a check as to whether someone is a human on all background checks from now on.

    I would say that unless the weapon was defective, it wouldn't have been a 1911. Not only would the frame safety have to be off, he would have to engage the grip safety and hit the trigger to get it to fire.

    If I were the cat I would have my bags packed when he gets home. Wouldn't want to live with a moron who shoots himself!

    I didn't get shot, and the gun didn't fire, but this one happened to me.

    Turn the election's in 2014 to a "2A Revolution". It will serve as a 1994 refresher not to "infringe" on our Second Amendment. We know who they are now.........SEND 'EM HOME. Our success in this will be proportional to how hard we work to make it happen.

    It could have been possible with a Glock...very unlikely though...

    The idiot already acknowledged his stupidity.

    Cocked and locked is fine...actually it's perfect...but I can't understand why this tool would have the frame safety off when there was no immediate threat. Maybe they should require an IQ check along with all the others to purchase a firearm.
