Shooting oneself probably isn't the best way to force doctors to treat an earlier injury.
So muses a Niles woman whose lack of health insurance prevented her from receiving treatment for a painful sprained shoulder.
Kathy Myers, 41, who shot herself in the shoulder Thursday, is now waiting to see if prosecutors will file charges against her.
This fascinating story touches on so much. She loved guns, was a recovering alcoholic who was thinking about taking a drink after 7 years, she had gotten rid of her 357 Magnum.
"I like guns," she said. "But I had to get rid of it. I have a bit of a temper."
What's your opinion? Is this a new twist on the old observation that "the gun is the answer?" Do you think a person like this should own guns?
