Dude Fatally Shoots Himself in the Head While Demonstrating Gun Safety

By Robert Paul Reyes

"A 36-year-old Michigan man`s death was ruled to be a suicide after he fatally shot himself in the head while attempting to demonstrate gun safety at his Independence Township home at 9 p.m. on Sunday."



This hapless man was demonstrating to his girlfriend how safe guns were by placing a gun to his head and squeezing the trigger. He did this with two handguns before the third one fired.
