You'll Shoot Your Penis Off

Here's something to consider for those who think that arming more people is the route to take to put an end to gun violence; a security guard in the city of San Fernando in the Republic of Trinidad and Tobago was hospitalized this week when the handgun that he was carrying accidentally discharged, and shot off his penis.

Police said around 8 am they received a call from a resident that a gunshot was heard coming from a parked car. The police responded and found a 33-year-old man slumped behind the steering wheel.

He was bleeding from his groin area and a .38 firearm with four rounds of ammunition was found in his right front pocket. The man, who said he lived in Lopinot, was taken to the San Fernando General Hospital where he remains warded under police guard.

It seems he didn't possess a license for his handgun or ammunition, and now faces charges of illegal possession of a firearm and ammunition. Perhaps shooting off his penis will be punishment enough?

Raw Story reports that men accidentally shooting themselves in the penis is not uncommon:

"The Digital Journal listed reports of accidental gunshot wounds to the penis and testicles in Arizona and Washington state, as well as an incident from September in Port Lucie, Florida in which a man cleaning a newly purchased gun at a party shot himself in the genitals."

So, lock and load at your own peril.
