Let the record show that I'm a proponent of the Second Amendment, but it's stories like THIS that beg for some more gun control legislation to keep guns out of the hands of irresponsible idiots.

According to Click2Houston, a father in Humble, Texas was hosting a birthday party for his 16 year old daughter when he pulled out his gun and began "twirling" it on his finger, at which point it "accidentally" went off. Surprise surprise, the man accidentally shot himself in the stomach.

The man was rushed to the hospital, but his condition is unknown at this time. Now, one could argue that this father, due to his negligence, has suffered enough by injuring himself, but let's not ignore the fact that he chose to pull his little "parlor trick" at a birthday party with KIDS all around.

Guys like this give responsible gun owners a bad a name, so if you know someone who may be dumb enough to try this, have a talk with them today for all our sakes.
