Bad crazy gun news

Item #1

[LINK] A woman was trying to kill mice with a .44-caliber Magnum revolver while were running across the floor of her small travel trailer. She dropped the gun, which fired when it landed on the floor. The bullet went through her knee, hit some keys hanging on a man's belt loop, tore through his pants, grazing his groin and stopping in his coin pocket.

Item #2

[LINK] An Oklahoma church has postponed plans to give away a semiautomatic assault rifle to a teenager as part of an annual conference. Last year, they did give away a gun at the event, but this time it was postponed, not because it's a damn stupid idea or anything else that makes sense. It was postponed until next year because the Pastor running the event broke his foot and couldn't attend. Here's a quote from the Youth Pastor
“I don’t want people thinking ‘My goodness, we’re putting a weapon in the hand of somebody that doesn’t respect it who are then going to go out and kill,'” said Ross . “That’s not at all what we’re trying to do.”

Ross said the conference isn’t all about guns, but rather about teens finding faith.
