    Man admits he shot himself
    By Paula Clair

    A gunshot victim has recanted his statement about how he was shot in the left buttock.

    The man was reported injured in a Feb. 13 shooting in the 20000 area of Memphis Drive in Phillipsburg, according to the Laclede County Sheriff’s Office.

    “He went outside and supposedly took a gun outside to shoot a possum that was where his hens were kept,” said Sheriff Richard Wrinkle. “(He) fell down, dropped the gun and the gun discharged ... and shot himself,” Wrinkle said.

    The man had had an argument with his neighbor the night before, so he knew the neighbor’s rifle was in the neighbor’s truck, the sheriff explained.

    “He never would say who shot him, because he did not want to basically lie about how he got shot by giving someone up. ...He did not want to get anyone in trouble so he just ‘didn’t know,’” said Wrinkle.

    At first the man had told deputies he had heard his dogs barking and stepped out onto the porch to investigate the commotion.

    He said at that time that he saw a truck and subsequently sustained a gunshot wound.

    Physicians at a Springfield hospital told Wrinkle on Feb. 15 that the bullet, which was lodged inside the victim’s left buttock, was in a location where it was difficult to remove. Therefore, the bullet could not be analyzed.

    The Second Amendment has nothing to do with hunting. It is about keeping the government in check. This requires that the citizenry is well armed and at all times has immediate access to arms.

    Obviously, the bullet caused him brain damage.
