A 42-year-old man is accused of accidentally shooting a teenager in the shoulder during a water gun fight at a barbecue in a Houston suburb Sunday, news reports say. The 15-year-old girl was taken to a hospital, and Jason Speights was arrested on a charge of deadly conduct, KPRC-TV in Houston reported.
One witness told ABC 13 that Speights had gone inside the house to get a dry set of clothes, and that it appears the gun was mixed in with the clothes.“And when he went to holster it he was spinning it on his finger, he pulled the trigger and accidentally shot her near the collarbone,” Lawrence Martinez said.The girl was in stable condition later Sunday.

I am going to take a very wild guess, but the gun will turn out to be a modern semi auto instead of the more traditional single action revolver.  Spinning a modern pistol is up there in the Pantheon Of Dumb Crap to Do With a Gun right next to playing Russian Roulette with a fully loaded 1911.

Semi-retired like Vito Corleone before the heart attack. Consiglieri to J.Kb and AWA. I lived in a Gun Control Paradise: It sucked and got people killed. I do believe that Freedom scares the political elites.

  1. That’s daily headlines in Chicago. Nearly every shooting is directly or associated w/ gang activity. While at the same time they’ve cut the city’s police force by over 2000 officers, the ACLU is encouraging residents to sue any that actually are doing their job, and BLM is marching in support of drug dealers and violent gang members.

  2. Rhetorical question: how does this negligent action relate to a water pistol fight in any meaningful way other than to allow the creation of a false mental image by the headline?
