Armed and Driving

I was forwarded this article about a guy trying to use a gun on a tire.
I suppose when you get down to it, the honor of a Darwin Award is really earned by the recipient of one. I mean, what is the pattern of synapses firing in a decision like this? “Hmm, tire is stuck. Gun unstucks things with bullet things. Use gun on tire to unstuck it? Yes, unstuck tire means getting to home, to watch game and each pork rinds more. But wait, pork rinds already in car with stuck tire. Stay here with stuck tire and eat pork rinds? Stupid logic brain, no game in car! Oh yeah, sorry gun brain, forgot about that. Shoot stupid tire!”
And thus you end up with a man in Washington State injured in both legs for shooting a tire with a 12 gauge shotgun. Really makes a solid case for that whole 2nd Amendment thing.
