(Sun-Times) A man cooking in his kitchen was shot after one of his cats knocked his 9mm handgun onto the floor, discharging the weapon, Michigan State Police said.

Joseph Stanton, 29, of Bates Township in Iron County was shot in his lower torso around 6 p.m. Tuesday, the state police post in Iron River reported. He was transported to Iron County Community Hospital.
a) Why did he have a gun on the kitchen counter? Why wasn't it safely stored?

b) Why was it cocked? I don't see how a 9mm can drop and go off unless the hammer was back already.

c) Why couldn't the round go through his head so we'd have one less idiot in the world?

This has nothing to do with gun control and everything to do with idiot control.
