A man celebrating the New Year while playing with a gun is fighting for his life.
An unidentified man was celebrating New Year's Eve with his family, according to Jacksonville Sheriff's Office Sgt. Brian Shore. The man was playing with a gun around midnight, when he accidentally fired it and shot himself in the head.
The victim was transported to UF Health Jacksonville where he is currently in serious condition. No charges are pending at this time.
You know he might have had a concealed carry permit, this being Florida and all. It's really hard to tell just how bad the permit holders are. So many incidents keep happening and no one is checking what permits and licenses the idiot gun owners have in their wallets.
