Jose Canseco Gives Finger to Gun Safety – Literally
Jose Canseco accidentally shot off his left middle finger while cleaning a handgun in his house. Jose's fiancée Leila Knight was there when it happened. She says he was cleaning the gun at his kitchen table, and he didn't know it was loaded.
She told the "", quote, "I heard the gun go off and saw his middle finger hanging by a string. It will either have to be amputated or have full reconstruction surgery."
The 4 Rules of Gun Safety from Col. Jeff Cooper:
RULE I: ALL GUNS ARE ALWAYS LOADED
RULE II: NEVER LET THE MUZZLE COVER ANYTHING YOU ARE NOT WILLING TO DESTROY
RULE III: KEEP YOUR FINGER OFF THE TRIGGER UNTIL YOUR SIGHTS ARE ON THE TARGET
RULE IV: BE SURE OF YOUR TARGET
