Accidental Shooting of Colorado Springs Man by Himself - He's Dead

Local news reports

Police were called just before 3 a.m. when neighbors reported the shooting.

Officers arrived to find paramedics and firefighters working to treat a man who had been shot. Police said the man was in another room when his sleeping fiancée heard the gunshot. She rushed in to find him wounded.

Police said they determined that the man accidentally shot himself.
Here's why the gun control movement is destined to win. These guys keep killing themselves. I know the gun-rights folks tell us the number of accidental shootings is very low, but it sure doesn't seem like that when you read the news. Some of the numbers they give us don't make sense at all, I see more than that in my daily reading.

Not only is there a certain amount of loss due to attrition among the gun owners, the survivors, family members and loved ones very often turn towards gun control advocacy.

That's why gun control is a winner, that and the fact that it's right.

What's your opinion?  Please leave a comment.


  1. Except that more and more people are buying guns and getting carry licenses. Except that the number of accidental deaths from firearms is under a thousand per annum.

    You're falling into the "breaking news" trap. If it bleeds, it leads, but the facts support what we've told you time and again.

  2. I am moving from a tiny town in Kansas to Colorado Springs. I have been looking online at apartment complexes and am wondering where are the good areas vs bad areas? I am a full time student and a mother so I don't have the money to live in the most expensive areas though. Any input is helpful!

  3. This site is a magnificent resource to get educative info! Will you be mind if I pingback a couple of of your blog posts on my private website?
