Two pals were watching a game on TV. One of them got the hiccups. The other one decided to scare the hiccups out of him. So he got his gun and shot the guy dead. Hiccups stopped. From Elpasotimes.com:
Myers told police he thought the weapon had dummy rounds and was trying to scare his friend so his hiccups would stop.
A military tribunal sentenced the shooter to 3.5 years for involuntary manslaughter.
With friends like that -- all together now -- who needs enemies?
Addendum: Memo to gun controllers: they were soldiers at Ft. Hood, so don't get all knee jerky.
