Oklahoma teenager shoots himself in the leg. For the second time in three months.

Courtesy of CBS Houston:  

An Oklahoma 16-year-old boy is in serious condition after he accidentally shot himself in the leg for the second time over the last three months, according to police. 

Tulsa police found the teen injured from a single gunshot to his left leg around 3:25 a.m. Monday, as reported by Tulsa World. Officials say the victim was conscious but incoherent and suffered from a large amount of blood loss. A tourniquet was applied to stop the bleeding after police feared the teenager had severed an artery.

The young man almost bled to death but the "quick action" of the responding officers, who applied a tourniquet, likely saved his life.

As it turns out this was not the first time that officers responded to a 911 call from the teen's residence, as three months earlier he had also shot himself in the leg.

I am not exactly sure what this 16 year old has against his leg, but perhaps the NRA ought to consider arming it so that next time it can at least return fire.

    Besides the fact that this is the second time he shot himself, the other thing that got my attention was that it was three in the frickin morning. Maybe he had restless leg syndrome and couldn't sleep so he was threatening the leg and the gun accidentally went off. I would live to see an interview with this kids parents.

    This is clearly a case of child neglect. How does this kid have such easy access to a gun, especially if he's such a dumbass?

    Maybe there can be a three-strikes-and-you're-out condition put on this teen. Put a non-fatal hole in another part of your body once more, and we take your fetish away. At sixteen, he should be playing with another toy, not this one.

  4. Maybe he was aiming at his head...and missed?

    Quick on the trigger but slow on the draw! Bet he was practicing
    his quick draw.

  6. Read an article in the Tulsa World about this genius. Seems that the gun from the first incident was confiscated and was still at the police station.

    My first thought is why does this kid want to die so much? Or am I using logic when it's just a 'boy' thing?

    Hope he gets the help he needs

    Another victory for the second amendment.

    Our founding fathers would be so proud.

    Accordion to NRA logic, someone should have shot that young fellow dead the FIRST time he shot himself:
    the only way to stop a stupid youngster with a gun is an NRA member with a gun and with no conscience nor qualms about blazing away at a fellow human being.

    Let me guess, it just went off, right? Those damn tricky "free will" guns.

    You may laugh now, but just wait.

    Remember this dumbass' name.

    One day he will be a republican candidate for President.

    I was about to make some kind of joke until I realized how dumb and insensitive that would be.
    The situation should be fully investigated, and the parents charged with whatever legal violation applies.
    The kid should be put into protective custody.
    And Wayne LaPierre should be fined $10,000 a day until he shuts up about any and all issues, gun-related or not.

    Once could be an accident, twice is a habit. He's damn lucky the cop thought quick and saved his life. but the kid needs some heavy duty help.
