    Man accidentally kills himself during gun safety demonstration

    A man in the US accidentally shot himself in the head and died on Monday as he was trying to persuade his girlfriend that guns are safe.

    The unnamed 36-year-old from Independence Township, Michigan, was demonstrating how his three handguns are safe when they are not loaded by holding them to his head and pulling the trigger, Detroit Free Press reported.

    But when the third gun went off, the man was struck in the head with a bullet. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

    Authorities say three children not related to the man, aged 7,10, and 12, were in the home at the time of the shooting, but did not witness it.

    The man's girlfriend told police that he had been drinking most of the day before he died, and sheriff's officials said alcohol appears to have been a factor in the incident, according to CBS Detroit.

    An autopsy will be performed by the Oakland County Medical Examiner as an investigation into the man's death continues.

    A man in St Petersburg, Florida died in similar circumstances in January last year, when he too tried to show that guns are safe and shot himself in the head.

    Sadly the man wasn't intelligent enough to realise that alcohol/drug induced behaviour and firearms don't mix

    I'd take it from Keith the lead singer from Chicago not to do that.

    Yep after a few strong ones he pointed a 38 revolver to his head and pulled the trigger.

    No prob but not so lucky when he tried out the 9 milli.


    Dead.

    Hell of a party piece that.


    Always point guns away from your body I'd say.
    Do you know what nemesis means?

    Well, at least the children "are not related to the man" so they cannot inherit his moronic traits.

    Probably the most deceptively misleading headline that rag could have used.

    So, knowing he'd done this before, did she load one of the guns with that bullet??? Is this a murder case?

    I was just playing devil's advocate. It's possible (likely?) that he was an idiot, had done this kind of thing before and the gf wanted to off him - a near perfect crime...

    It was the heavy drinking that killed him.
