Another ‘Good Guy With a Gun’… As it Were…

Perhaps the good guys with guns should learn how to use them?  Or perhaps this is just God’s judgment.

A 46-year-old man accidentally shot himself in a genital Thursday after a gun slipped from his waistband, police said.  Marion Police Department issued a news release via Facebook that said Mark Anthony Jones did not have a license for the Hi-Point 9mm gun he was carrying.

‘A genital’?  I don’t even know what that is supposed to mean.  But given the circumstances, I’m going to assume this was God’s judgment.

Jones, in the emergency room of Marion General Hospital, told police he was walking about 6:44 a.m. Thursday on a riverside trail near the Marion Girl Scout Cabin. That’s west of the Washington Street bridge over the Mississinewa River. He said when the gun began to slip from his waistband, he reached to adjust the firearm and it discharged. “The bullet entered just above his penis and exited his scrotum,” the release said. The gun was not in a holster.  Grant County prosecutors will review the case to consider possible criminal charges.

  1. well, he shot his genitals… so he is no longer a good GUY with a gun…
    (modern pistols without locks should not be put in the waist without a holster protecting the trigger – otherwise you’ll no longer be a “guy” with a gun… or, all you will have left is a gun)… but then again, I am mean, aren’t I?
