Nothing Like A Little Blood Dancing On A Friday Afternoon

You have to hand it to the gun prohibitionists - they do love their blood dancing.

They are linking to a story about a negligent discharge by a woman in Colorado. It involved an intoxicated young woman who slipped and fell while returning to a party to show off her new AK. Unfortunately, the firearm was loaded, a round was chambered, and it seems obvious to me that she had her finger on the trigger. The end result was that she died.

While the Violence Policy Center is keying in on the "new assault rifle" (sic), the story in and of itself is a warning not to handle dangerous objects while intoxicated. It could have just as easily been a kitchen knife or an ice pick. We have all been warned to not run with scissors. This is just an extension of that old warning.


  1. Always clear any weapon you pick up. And always follow the 4 rules. People need to learn that when the booze comes out, the guns go in the safe.

  2. She certainly violated Rules 1-3. And the 5th rule if you've added that (Guns + Alcohol = Bad)
