Woman Shot While Using Oven With Gun In It

A couple human interest stories. First, via the UK’s Daily Mail:

Woman ‘shot’ and wounded as she cooks a snack after bullets left in her OVEN explode

20 February 2013

A woman cooking herself a snack has been wounded after the bullets her roommate left inside the oven exploded and sprayed her with shrapnel. Aalaya Walker, 18, preheated the oven of her apartment in Tampa, Florida, on Monday to make herself waffles – not knowing that Javarski ‘JJ’ Sandy, 25, had stashed his pistol magazine with four live rounds in the appliance.

Florida, of course.

Ms Walker was hit in the chest and the leg by shrapnel from at least one round. Mr Sandy, who legally owns a .45-caliber Glock 21 semiautomatic pistol, told police he took the magazine out of his gun and put it in the oven. He put the gun itself in a drawer, according to the Tampa Bay Times. He never explained to officers why he put the clip with four live rounds in the oven.

Police determined that Mr Sandy, who works at WalMart, had committed no crime. He was not charged.

Ms Walker said she picked brass shell casing fragments out of her skin as she rode the bus to the hospital. Officers described her injuries as ‘superficial’ and not life threatening.

The oven in question didn’t have a temperature gauge, so officers could not determine how hot it was when the rounds ignited. However, the magazine had melted and the oven was heavily damaged. Some reports indicate that pistol ammunition can ignite a temperatures as low as 290 degrees. However, without the high-pressure of a gun chamber, the round is less likely to be deadly since the explosive force is dispersed.

We clearly need more stringent oven control laws.

Vegas woman arrested for sex with pit bull

By Matt Guillermo | February 20, 2013

LAS VEGAS (FOX5) – A Las Vegas woman was arrested Tuesday after authorities caught her having sex with a pit bull in her back yard, according to Metro police.

In an arrest report released Wednesday, police said they were called to a home in the 300 block of N. 16th Street, where 23-year-old Kara Vandereyk was engaging in sexual acts with the animal in full view of neighbors. Police said the woman stood-up and greeted officers with a "Hi".

Vandereyk appeared to be under the influence of drugs or was mentally ill, according to the report.

Why couldn’t it just be puppy love?

Police said she could not identify herself and was unable to answer questions about the current date or name of the President of the United States.

Ah, she is one of our low information voters. — Or maybe she is just a journalist.

Vandereyk is quoted in the report telling officers, "I’m bipolar." She also admitted to taking prescription medication but was not sure if she was on them at the time, police said.

Vandereyk is charged with open and gross lewdness. The canine was taken into the custody of Animal Control.

It’s always the victim who suffers.

    Never bring an oven to a gunfight

    That seems unduly snotty. How about, “Honey, get your things and get out.”

    Yeah. That’s more like it.

    It’s all about using the right tool for the job. If you’re going to make waffles, use a waffle iron… not a loaded oven.

    This might put to the rest the 9/11 truthers.

    The woman need only wait til the law allows people to marry animals and trees; the Wiccans and Pagans are making progress at the University of Missouri who have given them test less holidays.
