A Florida man shot himself in the face during an argument with his wife because guns don't kill people. 57 year old Dennis Eugene Emery got into a argument with his wife when he thought it would be a good idea to point the gun at the family dog. This was all happening this morning at 6am which as someone who grew up in a fighting household is way too early to be starting shit. So while Dennis was pointing the gun at the dog he cocked the hammer because fuck you safety is for girls.
While trying to release the hammer the gun went off and he shot himself in the face and died. This sounds like something out of a Coen Brothers movie. Police in the area had been in touch (meaning had to deal with) this guy a total of 34 times, three of them being in the last five days for domestic battery and aggravated assault. In 1977 he was charged with drunk driving, being drunk in public in 1983, and domestic violence charges last year. There are so many questions I have. How can someone be in trouble with the police that many times and not be in prison? How were he and his wife allowed to be near each other? What were they fighting about? Did the dog really do it? So many questions!
