Woman “shot” and wounded after bullets left in her OVEN explode. Guess it’s time for a national conversation about ovens. As a certain Colorado Dem pol might suggest, this is why we have McDonalds and Pizza Huts because when you turn on an oven you don’t know who you’re gonna be shooting at.

Background checks and waiting periods for ovens?

Hey, c’mon, no one needs a commercial grade oven.

Paint it black and you’ll have mandatory federal registration.

I hope my black oven would be grandfathered in.

Will woodburning stoves be outlawed too?

I think the carbon restrictions would cover that.

Then Mick Jagger will have to change the words to – I see an oven and I want it painted black…

Actually, the way my mom used to cook I think she already invented this. (Hint – we used to call her biscuits hockey pucks).

Was this the warning shot Joe Biteme was talking about?

I wonder if she’ll duck next time she puts popcorn in the microwave?

I’m calling BS on this one.
The bullet itself has the mass, when a unsupported cartridge explodes the brass case is projected away and the heavy bullet says put.
I’ve played around with this when I was a kid, even the mythbusters did a segment.

Perhaps it was the shell casing that inflicted the wounds?

According to the story it was the casing.

Chicago-style pizza, now with bullet toppings.

I still call bullshit. First, I don’t buy the story that a guy comes home, ejects a mag with four rounds in it, puts the gun away in a cabinet, then puts the mag in the oven. Second, who makes waffles in the oven? Third, since the bullet does not act as if it’s coming out of a barrel, and the brass flies off like shrapnel, I’m not buying that the pieces of brass penetrated an oven door and caused injuries requiring a trip to the hospital.

Correct. Total bullshit. For fun, when sitting around a campfire, drop some .22 rounds in the fire. Watch people scatter. All that happens is the shell splits. Without the shell being in a chamber, the energy just splits the shell. Soft brass. Higher caliber rounds do the same. Loud bang. Bullets do not fly. The brass does not fragment into shrapnel.

Especially when softened by the heat of the fire.

If this woman showed up in the hospital with “shrapnel” wounds, it came from something other than her WallyWorld greeter putting his partially loaded magazine in the oven.

When are we going to start having a rational, common-sense discussion about OVENS?

Because . . . wait for it . . .

YA KNOW WHO ELSE USED OVENS?!?

It is much harder to direct fire when using an oven.

Silly me, I always kept my ammo in the microwave.

Incidents like this will give the gun control crowd ammunition for their cause.
