Your Typical Ohio Gunowners

Ohh Shoot has a wonderful knack for capturing those incidents in gun lore that are both funny and scary at the same time.

An Ohio man got into an argument with his live-in girlfriend. She got the shotgun and fired a round into the air next to their porch. He grabbed the gun away from her and smashed it against a tree. That's when the gun went off, shooting him in the abdomen. He was taken to the hospital by Medflight and later charged with using weapons while intoxicated.

Pro gun folks hate these stories because they beg the question, "how common is this?"
What's your opinion? Please leave a comment.


  1. Is there some unusual new definition of "typical" of which I (and the rest of the English-speaking world, I suspect) am unaware?

  2. My use of the word "typical" in this case is a slight exaggeration. What I guess it really is is "fairly common."
