Minnesota Carpenter Survives Nail Gun Shot to the Heart

Yahoo News reports

Minnesota carpenter Eugene Rakow has a second shot at life after he literally took a shot to the heart. Rakow of St. Bonifacius, Minn., is recovering from accidentally shooting a 3.5-inch nail into his chest that came within 2 millimeters of his coronary artery.
The harrowing incident unfolded Friday while the 58-year-old man was repairing his neighbor's deck when his nail gun kicked back, firing the spike through his chest and piercing his heart.
I couldn't help but wonder if this guy owns any real guns.

    Pretty sad when you're less concerned about the guy living than about disarming him.

    1. Pretty sad when you could care less about children dying so you can have an unrestricted gun flow.
