Stupidity can't be cured with laws

When 18 year olds can't play Russian Roulette without getting hurt then you've got to say enough is enough. Raise your hand if you think this can be solved with some more "reasonable" gun laws.
"The victim was playing with a revolver, spinning the cylinder, placing it to his neck and then pulling the trigger,” Lt. Jeff Cooper said.
Is it me, or does it look odd that a man named Jeff Cooper has Lt. in front of his name. Someone should promote him.

Update: From the same news source comes this article about the second shooting at a local restaurant in a month that injured six people.

Officers said two people were firing shots at each other outside Bobo’s Chicken at Northeast 23rd and Hood streets. They think one side of the shootout may have involved people standing outside the restaurant and the others were in a car.

"We're looking at it as a gang-related shooting right now," said Mike Klika, of the Oklahoma City Police Department.

Bobo's Chicken? Anyways, the owner wants to do something about the violence, but has yet to say what that is. Maybe they should put up a sign since, you know, they work so well.
