    Eastern Missouri man dies after shooting self while teaching firearms safety

    The Associated Press

    IMPERIAL, Mo. | An eastern Missouri man is dead after accidentally shooting himself while teaching firearms safety to his girlfriend.

    KSDK-TV reports that 40-year-old James Looney of Imperial died of a gunshot wound to the head.

    The shooting happened Friday. Jefferson County Sheriff Glenn Boyer told the station that according to witnesses, Looney was demonstrating how to use the different safety mechanisms on several guns. Witnesses told authorities that Looney would put the guns to his head, ask his girlfriend if she thought the gun would go off, then pull the trigger.

    The safety mechanisms worked for the first two guns. But the third gun fired. Looney died Saturday at a hospital.

    Darwin Award Candidate actually made it to age 40. Hmmm.

    Unbelievably dumb.

    The only way he could have violated another safety rule is if his g/f had been hit by a through-and-through.

    Well now his stupidity probably traumatised his g/F to the point that she looks at all guns as being unsafe and dangerous

    No need to assume, he knew it was loaded. Darwin award winner for sure.

    Darwin award for sure.

    How we behave as gun owners is important. Posturing and threatening does not serve us well in the public eye.

    He did it 3 times!

    And at no point did the G/F say, "You know, that's kind of a bad idea James!"


    Imagine her surprise on the 3rd time!
