Man kills self while teaching gun safety

Freaky is only one way to describe the guy who was teaching gun safety and then accidentally shot and killed himself.

Ironic is another one.

Samuel Benally Jr., 26, was demonstrating how guns should always be kept unloaded as he stuck his own gun to his skull and pulled the trigger.

May Benally rest in peace, but dumb is a third way to describe this one.

We’ll be sure the two folks who were witnessing the gun safety demonstration have learned a lesson they will never forget.

What do you think?

Citizen Online Archive, 2006-2009

This archive contains all the stories that appeared on the Tucson Citizen's website from mid-2006 to June 1, 2009.

In 2010, a power surge fried a server that contained all of videos linked to dozens of stories in this archive. Also, a server that contained all of the databases for dozens of stories was accidentally erased, so all of those links are broken as well. However, all of the text and photos that accompanied some stories have been preserved.

For all of the stories that were archived by the Tucson Citizen newspaper's library in a digital archive between 1993 and 2009, go to Morgue Part 2
