Take Evasive Action!

Via the best blogger in Kansas City, Blue Girl, Red State, comes the sad tale of a woman who was fatally shot by the second shot fired by her husband trying to punch holes through a wall so he could install satellite TV.

Folks, if you see bullets flying from your house, take evasive action. Don't get close enough to where the bullets are flying through the wall that you can be killed by a .22 handgun. Especially if you're married to the sort of guy who uses a .22 handgun as a handy substitute for the proper drill bit.

I can see how the first bullet flying might take you by surprise, but the second one?

No accounting for stupidity, is there, Dan? Now which is the bigger idiot: the moron who uses a .22 as a drill, or the wife who apparantly comes and looks?

BTW - STupidity crosses all party lines; is there any reason this is under the label Republican? I'd bet my next paycheck that these folks, if they vote at all, vote Democratic. Probably for Hillary.

Stupidly resorting to guns when other means could have accomplished the same end more effectively, and needlessly bringing a tragic outcome because of a failure to think ahead about the negative possibilities? Sounds pretty republican to me . . .

The husband had always been content with watching their 25" RCA via the rabbit ears. His wife decided, without his permission, to spend their tax return on a new LCD television. This new television required cable or satellite as the source for a signal. Since she so frivolously spent their money, he was forced to do the cable installation himself.

In 2004, for his birthday, she bought him a cordless drill, and made him throw away his vintage plug-in model.

Unfortunately, she failed to keep the battery for the new cordless drill charged, thereby, causing him to have no ability to drill the hole.

If not be for her involvment, he would not have had to resort to the use his .22 revolver to create the hole.

Besides that, if she would have stayed in the kitchen, where he told her she belonged, this would not have happened.

Even if this defense doesn’t work; the husband could use the insanity defense. Everyone knows that it takes at least a 9mm to create a hole large enough to pass thru an RG-60 cable.

Can we really be sure that this was an accident? I mean, the guy probably wanted to knock off his wife and came up with a scheme that would make people think he's too stupid to commit murder.

Brilliant!

I'm waiting for Madison to sue the television manufacturer.

By just the headline, I thought this would be about Hillary and sniper fire.
