Man Uses Gun to Blow Hole in Wall for Satellite Dish, Kills Wife by Accident

#1
I don't think this has been shown yet, but..
Sad!

This is what tools are for, my friends. Ronald Long of Deepwater, MO, was trying to install a satellite dish in his bedroom. He was having trouble putting the necessary hole in the wall and, thinking himself quite clever, decided to use his gun to get the job done quickly. Unfortunately, his wife was outside and caught the bullet in the chest. She was rushed to the hospital but was declared dead on arrival. On the upside, Ronald now has DirecTV. Silver linings, people.

This reminds me of that episode of the Simpsons where Homer bought a gun and joined a gun club, and used the gun to do things like turn off lights.

I mentioned this in Arthur Curry's thread the other day. The woman was an idiot for standing in a room where the man was shooting through the walls. The first shot didn't kill her, it was the second one. And who the hell lets their husband do this anyway?

Yeah, write to my fanclub about it, honey.

Am I the only person that realises getting DirecTV at the price of losing your wife isn't such a bad trade-off? I mean come on people, this occurred in suburbia, where marriage stereotypes are very prevalent....

He should have gone with Direct TV.

They have the lowest fatality rate of all satellite dishes.

If she was shot in the chest, theres a chance it would damage her heart. CPR would help the flow of blood.

Oh yeah sorry. In Britain it's not such a clear cut thing. Like Yank is pretty much any American, but over there isn't it specifically Northerners or New Yorkers or something?

but seriously, what is america's obsession with guns all about?


They go "bang!" and stuff.
I've also heard it's much easier to kill things with guns instead of your hands
But seriously there should be strict gun control here in America.

Yep, if you're not in the army, you're not allowed a gun. Seems simple enough to me.

Was it really an accident tho? It seems terribly unlikely.

Too bad everyone goes on about the second amendment

But if I'm not mistaken, the second amendment states that Americans are allowed the right to bear arms in an organised militia i.e, the army.

But I could be wrong.

How could he not have noticed that he shot her, wouldn't she have screamed? Stupid hillbilly probably thought the wall was screaming

Why would he have been trying to install a satellite dish on the inside?

Exactly. The wife is the one who should be sent to jail. It truly is a unfair world.

It makes it sound like she caught the bullet in her cleavage. Like superman, but with double D's.

I think you misread the article or I did. The woman was outside when he shot through the wall to install the satellite.
