James Looney (no, not the Dodgers player. He only has one ‘o’.) decided to show his girlfriend how to use a gun the other day. Clearly the lesson plan wasn’t sinking in, so this teaching revolutionary decided the best way to show her how to not use a gun was the kill himself.
Best lesson plan of all time! You can only use it the one time though.
The Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office says a firearm safety demonstration turned deadly Friday when a 40-year-old Imperial man accidentally shot and killed himself.
Police say James Looney of the 4300 block of Rock Valley court was teaching his girlfriend about firearm safety when he put a gun to his head and asked her if it would go off. Police say he did this with two other weapons and varied safety mechanisms before the last one went off, said Lt. Dave Marshak.
The police believe alcohol was involved. Also, we’re guessing, inbreeding at some point.
