Time For Another Gentle Reminder…

RULE 2, and the other three!

This just in…

LAS VEGAS (AP) _ Former major league slugger Jose Canseco is recovering after shooting himself in the hand at his Las Vegas home.

Metro police Lt. Mark Reddon says officers responded to a call of an accidental shooting shortly after 2:30 p.m. Tuesday.

Reddon says the former Oakland Athletics outfielder told police he was cleaning his gun in the kitchen when it fired, shooting a finger on his left hand. He was taken to University Medical Center of Southern Nevada.

Canseco is a right-handed batter who hit 462 career home runs and was a six-time All-Star. He also played for Texas, Boston, Toronto, Tampa Bay, the New York Yankees and Chicago White Sox during a career that spanned from 1985 to 2001.

An email sent to a representative of Canseco on Tuesday night was not immediately returned.

At least he didn’t tuck it into his waistband!

PEOPLE, PEOPLE, PEOPLE…if you don’t read anything else PLEASE read THE FOUR RULES on the sidebar!

And if you intend to clean your firearm, please unload it in a safe direction FIRST!  And put the ammo in another room.

THINGS LIKE THIS ADD TO THE NEGATIVE PUBLICITY ABOUT GUNS AND GUN OWNERS.

BE SAFE!

  1. Sigh. It’s been said, and said, and violated so often that now I just shrug and consider it a message from Uncle Darwin.
