Facebook is a wretched hive of scum and villainy where you can also keep up with what people you never talked to in high school are doing. The social network has been the focus of lots of criticism for their role in amplifying false information and encouraging dangerous behaviors, and this story is a perfect example, as it involves a Facebook group dedicated to guys aiming loaded handguns at their groins.
The group is called “Loaded Guns Pointed at [B]enis,” and it exists for just one reason: to piss off more responsible gun owners by sharing images of dangerous firearms handling. And where there’s dangerous firearms handling, there’s grievous bodily injury.
In a post starting with “Hey [b]ois, I might have f*cked up,” a group user from San Diego shared his tale of woe to his fellow Facebook users. Apparently when he was posing for a picture with his 1911 pistol, his finger slipped and pulled the trigger, ejecting a round right into his unsuspecting nutsack. He accompanied the text with a photo of his nude legs above blood spattered on the floor. A video depicts the whole thing.
He followed up later with a post from the hospital. “Turns out it wasn’t a graze, that round went right the f*ck through me,” he posted. “What I thought were two graze wounds, turned out to be an entrance and exit wound.”
