Budding Rap Star Meets Chlorine in the Gene Pool

Someone has once again removed themselves from the gene pool by pointing a firearm at their own head.

A young man whose father should have taught him better firearms handling placed the "Pen Gun" against his own head and tried to trigger the weapon.

Unfortunately a subsequent attempt to trigger the weapon worked.

The first rule of safety is

1. ALWAYS keep the gun pointed in a safe direction.
This is the primary rule of gun safety. A safe direction means that the gun is pointed so that even if it were to go off it would not cause injury or damage. The key to this rule is to control where the muzzle or front end of the barrel is pointed at all times. Common sense dictates the safest direction, depending on different circumstances.

He died shortly thereafter at a local hospital.
