Do you think the appropriate response to something like this is writing it off as an accident and going on as before? Don't you think a guy who does this, which just as easily as hitting his finger could have killed someone or himself, is too irresponsible to own guns safely? Pro-gun folks are always talking about how difficult it is to identify the dangerous ones before the do something really bad. Well, this is how. One strike you're out.A Hernando County man reportedly shot himself in the hand while trying to clean his gun.
The sheriff's office reports that 26-year-old Sean Santana was in his backyard Saturday afternoon, about to spray the .25-caliber pistol with cleaning solvent when the gun fired and hit him in the left middle finger.
Santana wrapped his hand and drove himself to a nearby hospital.
Deputies have determined the shooting was accidental.
