These "accidents," which are much more frequent than the pro-gun crowd would have us believe, could largely be prevented if stricter gun control laws were in effect. When anybody, anywhere can get a gun legally, with little or no training and little or no qualifications, gun mishaps are more likely.The victim, a 56-year-old man, was transported to UAB by ambulance with life-threatening injuries. Witnesses at the scene said the man was playing with a small pistol he recently purchased and the gun went off, shooting him in the head. The shot appeared to have been an accidental discharge.
