A Saudi girl in her 20s accidentally shot her father in the head with his own gun while they were on a picnic outside the town in Saudi Arabia.
The father, in his 60s, has just finished cleaning his gun when his daughter asked him to see the pistol. He emptied the gun of bullets but was unaware one bullet was left in.
The girl started playing with the gun then aimed at her fathers head and shot, thinking it was empty, Sabq newspaper said in a report from the central town of Qaseem.
The father was rushed to hospital in a serious condition while his daughter suffered from nervous breakdown
police said they are investigating the incident.
This makes me haZ a sad...
I lied. I doesn’t haZ a sad ar all.
“while his daughter suffered from nervous breakdown”
I guess if I were a female in SA who just shot her dad, I’d have a breakdown too.
And why would you not know how to clear the chamber, and why would you allow anyone to point a gun at your head? me thinks there is more to the story. We could use Paul Harvey on this one.
He didn't empty the gun.
A reverse honor killing! Cool!
Was she stopping an honor killing or did she bring one on?
Yup. She snapped.
That guy probably doesn’t belong to the NRA. No NRA member that I have known would ever handle a firearm that way.
Hmmm. So, will they stone or behead the daughter?
Tough to get’em real clean when you leave one in the pipe.
My daughters don't wonder why I have a bucket of sand by the front porch. When I say clear weapons, I don't mean by pointing them at me.
One down, a couple billion to go.
It needs to be repeated - it's very important to not only remove the magazine, but also clear the chamber.
Every reverse honor killing helps.
How about one round or shell was left in the gun.
When I see this or hear this it drives me crazy. A bullet is what comes out of the end of the barrel.
If all you had is bullets,to hurt or kill someone. You would have to throw them at your target.
She did ;)
But maybe the sequence wasn't quite what the family said ~ maybe she had a psychotic break and shot her dad.
Why would the father hand his child a gun without 1) properly clearing the weapon AND 2) first instructing the child on safe gun handling & use? There are several things which could have been done to avoid this tragedy. How sad...
I thought it was just because you like to make castles...
uh huh, I’ll just bet
No NRA member would put bullets in a pistol, unless by accident with a squib.
it was more feels anyway...you know. TFW: the gun was loaded?
Me too. Everyone’s an expert until you hear them equate cartridges with bullets. No one should comment unless they have ammo reloading skills and understand ammunition components.
No but she did.
That’s what I was thinking, she got him before he could get her.
Stupid knows no national boundaries. Father and daughter qualify.
The first thing I learned was: don’t point a firearm at something, unless you intend to destroy it. That includes if you are under the impression the firearm is empty.
They're muzzies & Saudi's to boot. Rational, common sense behavior are not among their strong points.
Maybe he just told her she is to marry some 80 yr old guy.
You is the winner of the internets for today!
Dad was going for a Darwin Award, apparently unaware he was disqualified by prior procreation.
“Why would you clean a gun at a picnic?”
Maybe they were having an infidel shoot and a picnic. What could be more muslim family outing?
I’m more inclined to believe it’s a religious-cultural/firearms stupidity thing. We had it happen right here in CA on a job with someone of that persuasion who found a gun, and when admonished for pointing it at everyone while handling it, dropped the magazine and proceeded to point it at their own head and pull trigger to demonstrate “emptiness” when one of my coworkers snatched it out of his hand and racked the live round out of the chamber.
This guy was an engineer too...
They grow up with firearms.
Personal protection is one of the reasons, and also protection from poisonous reptiles ~ they have some quite dangerous snakes throughout the region.
Americans and the True Arabs have that understanding in common.
I’m thinking that maybe they should punish her by forcing her to live with a 35 year old man that rapes and beats her on a daily basis...but then I remembered over there it wouldn’t be looked at as punishment, but the normal life of a girl/woman. So they’ll have to come up with something harsher, which isn’t easy.
Sounds like a fun place to work. Like a Three Stooges movie playing in your office.
On target on trigger.
Off target, off trigger.
I’m sure chuckie schumer and difi will bring this up as another reason to eliminate the second amendment.
Which part she gets amputated?
Oh, this was in the field, he found it in a Jack-in-the-Box bag on the side of the freeway...
I can remember when I was a kid my dad and I would reload the hell out of shotgun shells. I think we could reload shells for about a $1.50 a box.
“Jamie’s Got a Gun...”
That’s the way I was raised and I raised my kids.
Some people are seriously too stupid to live.
