Oregon man with open carry permit keeps bathroom safe by shooting himself in the leg.

Bringing cold steel sexy back.
Courtesy of The Register Guard:

A 26-year-old man accidentally shot himself in the thigh when his pistol went off as he used the restroom on the second floor of an Internet cafe in downtown Eugene on Thursday afternoon. 

The man, a Eugene area resident whose name was not released by police, was taken by ambulance to a hospital. His injuries were not believed to be life-threatening. 

The man was openly carrying his gun in a holster on his leg, which is legal, a police spokeswoman said. 

Witnesses said five people were inside Indras Internet Lounge at 271 W. Eighth Ave. when the man shot himself just before 3 p.m. 

James Sherburne, a manager at the business, said the man was in a bathroom when the gun went off. 

“He drug himself out of the bathroom and we helped him tie a tourniquet around his leg,” Sherburne said. “He got lucky, I think.”

Just imagine how safe everybody felt seeing this guy walk into the internet cafe with a big gun strapped to his leg. And then how much safer they felt knowing that he was so proficient with the weapon that he was able to block an accidentally shot bullet with his own body.

The man's a hero! And SO manly, don'tcha think?

Considering what he was doing when the gun went off, it certainly could have been worse.

    What can be said about people who go to HP and other websites looking for gun violence so they can post it here and get a free hardon over it?

      Dear Anon. @ 11:09; You seem a bit confused. It is the carrying of a weapon in public, needlessly, carelessly and for show that contributes to the effect you describe.

      This is a public safety issue. The nimrods who carry not only are a threat to themselves, but others around them.

      Fortunately, he only shot himself and not innocent bystanders in the adjoining bathroom stalls.

      What can be said about people who go have drunk so much TeaParty and Fucked Newz pee that they can't tell the difference between "gun violence" and gun stupidity? Because shooting yourself in the bathroom while "protecting" yourself is sooo Second Amendment and Founding Fathers.

    I was living in N. Az from 94-96. Az has open carry laws, you can carry anywhere except a bar or a bank. You hardly ever saw anyone actually carrying, except for maybe the shotgun in the truck rack or when you were out walking the range (for rattlesnakes).

    These nimrods - they don't know the first thing about carrying a weapon, much less handling one. Perhaps they will all just take themselves out like this epitome of skill and power did.

    I'm glad the bullet hit his thigh instead of passing through the floor, possibly injuring or killing an innocent patron on the first floor.

    What are the odds of being struck in crossfire or by a misfired, stray, or ricochet bullet compared to the odds of being protected by one of these jerks who carry in public? Oh...I almost forgot that the NRA, conspiring with Congress, has protected us from firearm studies.

    I just can't stop laughing at guys who, like in the picture, suck in that gut for a picture and then let it out with a huge sigh of relief when the gut can hang over the belt again...

      I know what you mean...I mean look at this picture...he looks like he's saying through gritted teeth...

      "Hey Joe Bob, hurry up and take the picture man...I can't hold this in any longer".

      Then Joe Bob took the picture and Mr "Shoot-em-in-the-thigh" exhaled and passed out! LOL!!!

    Paul Krugman Guts the NRA's Last Shred of Intimidation

    What we witnessing is the national destruction of the myth that the NRA has some sort of intimidating power that the left is afraid to challenge. The mainstream media has helped the NRA create this aura of power around itself that is being exposed as having never existed. When the White House released the picture of President Obama skeet shooting, they were sending a message to the NRA.

    The White House isn’t going to back down. Democrats aren’t going to back down, and the majority of the country will not stand down until meaningful reform has been enacted to deal with gun violence. Krugman was right. The NRA has revealed itself to be a right wing fringe group, and their leadership is not representing the views of a the majority of gun owners in this country.

    The NRA has been outed as nothing more than the tool of the gun manufacturers. They don’t represent gun owners anymore.

    That guy REEKS of a tiny penis and a hot head. The faux tough guy is front and center, along with his bully persona. Probably not real bright either.

  9. So much creepy about this guy & his gun, but the worst part of the story is it's "perfectly legal" for him to be packing in a public place.
    Problem with that pistol packin' is you never who is good or when they might turn bad-- what if someone was sitting in his favorite spot, or the coffee was not quite hot enough, or his oatmeal was served too thin?
    The implied threat of open carrying of guns sucks, as does that first commenters schpeal. Hello?
    Guns are a major national topic & a valid conversation.
    At least the local Gun Show had professionals @ the entrance who inspected each gun to insure guns were not loaded, as 6 others nationwide, were shot w guns for sale, where the seller (ooops!) did not know a bullet remained in a chamber.

    Speaking of guns-- did you hear Harry Belafonte's speech?

    (feel free to repost it... it is damned good).

    What kind of fool carrys with a round in the chamber? Oh I know. A man with a very small appendage trying to make himself more of a man. Actually I'm glad as hell he shot himself. Maybe he'll think twice about carrying a loaded piece. These Walter Mitty's who think they are some sort of Rambo who's gonna take down some bad guy at an internet cafe just about take the cake

    1. Anonymous12:53 PM

      Yes, you're now with the program and you're only one of many Americans who are glad when people get shot. Now if only you could have another school shooting where there are lots of children slaughtered. Why, that would fulfill your wildest wet dreams wouldn't it!

      Hey 12:53. I don't like it when anyone gets shot but if I have to choose between a child and some short peckered gun lover wearing a piece on his hip so he can be a real man then I'll take him over a kid.

      Yes, we all know what you're hoping for while you express false sentiments about shootings in your schools. Or in other words, as long as they are shooting people in places other than schools. You're a good Americans and a normal one at that.

    2. No, 1:40, you miss the point. As long as they are shooting THEMSELVES, they aren't hurting anyone else. And as long as these manly men play children's games in parking lots with LOADED guns, and only manage to shoot each other and not someone's spouse or child, we are relieved. We'd prefer that no one is stupid enough to walk around with a gun and think ti makes them safe, but stupid is as stupid does. And right now, the GOP is packed with stupid.

    As a woman that has concealed and carried over a stalker incident, I can't believe he had one in the chamber. It might have been better if he shot his dick off so he couldn't breed.
