SEATTLE (WA) - A man accidentally shot himself in the testicles at Lowe''s Home Improvement store in Lynnwood Sunday afternoon, police said.\
The man''s handgun, which was in the waistband of his pants, went off at about 12:30 p.m. — an apparent "accidental discharge," according to Shannon Sessions, a Lynnwood police spokeswoman.\
"It made a loud noise and scared a lot of people in the store," Sessions said. "I believe he shot himself in the testicles and he also had some injuries to his leg and foot. He was obviously in shock."\
Nobody else was hurt and no one appeared to be with the man, she said.\
Police and fire responded, and the man was rushed to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle before police had a chance to interview him extensively. Sessions had no further details about the man.\
Lynnwood police are continuing to investigate but "at this point it does look like it''s accidental," Sessions said. A manager at Lowe''s said store personnel are not commenting on the incident.
is that supposed to be a joke?
Good for him, I wish more gun lovers would do this.
I wonder what church he goes to?
Gun nuts are hilarious
If I was writing the headline:\
Teabagger now bagless.
Guns don''t shoot yourself in the testicles.\
People shoot themselves in the testicles.
yet people rarely shoot themselves in the testicles any other way, bunky.
Yet another inner city diversity star.
Man, I hate it when that happens.
When sack tapping gets hardcore.
I hope it happened before he reproduced. Definitely a candidate for the Darwin awards, if he was too stupid to make sure the gun''s safety was on.
Everyone''s missing the bigger question here. Why did he have his gun with him after church? Does he need to tote a weapon to Sunday service in case the sermon is not to his liking? Or in case the pot luck dinner is a little off? Or what if Jesus really does come back, and he needs to shoot the bastard before he can be judged?
Can we still call him a gun nut now?
he was treated with duct tape and released.
Yes, r13. He use to be nuts about guns. Now he's a singular gun nut.
If his testicles had had guns, they would not have been harmed.
That's just nuts!
Fortunately, he was within the parameters of the "Stand Your Groin" law.
There were a couple of high school kids committing armed robberies in Portland, OR over a decade ago. After one of the robberies one of the guys jumped into their stolen get away car and the gun went off and blew his nuts off. They ditched the car and went to the ER. The cops found the car with the blood and matched it to the guy at the ER.
They were the High School president and vice president and they both did something like 10 years in a maximum security prison.
I belive it made America's Most Wanted.
Another gun nut
Given male sensitivity about their genitalia, I've often wondered why so many carry their pistols in a way that will almost certainly blast a hole in them if they make one wrong move.
Yes. But is he cut or uncut?
Guns....the stupidity never ends!
Why on earth would he have a gun shoved into his pants pocket?
Most gun owners with permits generally don't go everywhere with an unholstered weapon which also has the safety off inside of they're pockets, it makes me think he was up to no good.
He truly deserves a Darwin Award.
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
