Darwin Award or Why You Really Need a Good Holster

From Omaha, we have this:

Gun in pants wounds genitals

A 24-year-old Omaha man who police say shot himself in the genitals was arrested on suspicion of several charges after he was treated at an Omaha hospital.

Brandon Boyce arrived at Creighton University Medical Center about 4:30 p.m. Monday for treatment of the wound. He told doctors and police that he had been shot by someone else.

Investigators later determined that Boyce accidentally had shot himself when he pulled a handgun out of his waistband, Officer Jacob Bettin, a police spokesman, said Tuesday.

Boyce was arrested on suspicion of being a felon in possession of a firearm, carrying a concealed weapon and possessing a controlled substance.

Boyce had been wounded in January of 2009 by Andre McKesson, owner of Midwest Grillz & Jewelry at 6209 Ames Ave.

Police said McKesson was defending himself after being shot at by two of Boyce's friends during an attempted robbery. Willie Wakefield, 29, and Marcel Davis, 16, were killed in the gunfight

I'm guessing Mr. Boyce has never attended a class in gun safety. Natural selection does have a way of catching up with stupid crooks.
