Texas State Rep shot in the head by Celebratory Gunfire (Don’t laugh, OK? Be nice)

ZOMG! This is out of control! What happened?

“The bullet, it was a 223 long arm bullet, and from what we saw. If you’re looking at the cranium, the bullet went straight down into the brain. So, a couple of millimeter more, and we wouldn’t be having this conversation.”

Huh?? Whiskey Tango Foxtrot?And no, it is not an error. Click on the link to see video of him saying exactly that and the wound created by the mysterious new caliber. I will leave the medical part about the bullet going straight into the bran and not causing damage to people who are proficient in such physiological/anatomical/medical matters.

I don’t know what happened, but I have the strange feeling that Rep (D) Martinez might be exaggerating (lying) just a tad (his ass off) about the injury and what might have really happened. Just a hunch.

And can anybody direct me to where I can buy them 223 Long Arm rounds? And what firearm shoots it.

  1. “Long arm bullet”. Cue fudds waking up in 3…2…nope, will never happen.

  2. “Politician shot in head, bullet missed brain” is a far better headline. If it hit him in the ass, it would have inhibited his public speaking abilities.

    • At least it didn’t hit him somewhere more vital to his career.

      And that’s about as nice as I can get with these lying a-holes.

  3. “Under Texas law, shooting a gun into the air can lead to a $10,000 penalty and up to 10 years in prison.”

    But Martinez wants to create a celebratory gunfire law too. Because that will make this extra illegaler. The illegal goes to 11.

  4. Hmmmm. I got a .223 Remington… but no .223 Long Arm.

  5. Eh, I’ll give a pass on the ‘long arm bullet’, since I grew up hearing a rifle called a long arm as opposed to long gun, but the thing going down through his head, between his lungs, and stopping a few millimeters from his as-oh, they don’t mean his head is empty? Never mind…

  6. I’ll give them a pass on “223 long arm bullet” as preferable to “ZOMG! He was shot by an AR-15!!!!11”

  7. As the human brain has two hemispheres, with a small gap running right down the middle, it’s possible (though extraordinarily unlikely) that a small object penetrating the skull directly up or down could miss both halves. This wouldn’t be the first time I’ve heard stories like this. Years ago I saw one where a teenager accidentally impaled his head — completely through-and-through — on a piece of heavy farm equipment (I want to say a hay baler), but because it went “straight up the middle” there was no serious or permanent damage.

    Absent other evidence, I’d give it the benefit of doubt and say that a FMJ, non-expanding .223 bullet could do this. Conceivably. In theory, at least. It’s a long shot (no pun intended) and a minor miracle, but it could happen.

  8. We all know this was a 22LR. If anything even hit him. If he isn’t just lying his Obama off just to use a custom of foreigners (celebratory gunfire) to try to attack the American right of self-defense and the right to keep and bear arms.
