Woman Accidentally Commits Suicide
Research shows that states with the most guns have the most unintentional deaths by a firearm. On Tuesday night, a young woman fatally shot herself in the head while handling an assault rifle in her home.
Twenty-two-year-old Anastasia Adair was passing an AK-47-style assault rifle to her husband, Dana "Shane" Adair, when the gun went off. A second shot was fired when Anastasia fell into Shane's arms and dropped the rifle, but no one else was hit.
Police report that Anastasia went upstairs to get her new gun that she purchased at Colorado's largest gun show, and while coming down stairs, the "Light Trigger Pull" sent a bullet flying straight into her head.
Apparently the barrel of the gun was facing the young woman as she attempted to hand it to her husband at the end of the steps.She was going to show off her new gun to her friends, whom she was just sharing some drinks with in the garage when suddenly, the host was dead! Who knew mixing beer and guns could be dangerous?
Well If you ain't know, It's not a good idea to be handling weapons while you're intoxicated.
According to the Law Center to Prevent Gun Violence, 606 people were killed by unintentional firearm injuries in the United States in 2010. The "Firearm Availability and Unintentional Firearm Deaths," study maintains the following:
People of all age groups are significantly more likely to die from unintentional firearm injuries when they live in states with more guns, relative to states with fewer guns. On average, states with the highest gun levels had nine times the rate of unintentional firearms deaths compared to states with the lowest gun levels.
Of course you have the "right" to have a gun in your house, but what good are your rights to you when you're dead?
Be safe out there America!
