The stupid **** will now insist on the finest treatment, rehabilitative care, job training, hand controls for his car, all at taxpayer expense.

That's one stupid fish. A real Dum-Bass.

But, that's okay, because "chicks dig scars." So he is really a cool guy.:rolleyes:

He almost got the Darwin Award. It's too bad he can't learn from this. The damage is already done.

If one looks closely at the label of the vest, it reads "bullet resistant" not bullet-proof... Then again, if you're dumb enough to actually let someone shoot you with a firearm, then a label won't help very much...

Makes me wonder though:
Who made the vest/firearm/bullet?
Will there now be a lawsuit against any/all these companies?
Is there going to be a law passed that bans people from wearing bullet-resistant vests while being shot at by their friends???

From a certain viewpoint he may have. Not certain ( I am not an expert ) but not all male spinal cord damage patients maintain the ability to reproduce ( at least without expensive help and public aid will not pay for that type of service ) so he may be out of the gene pool.

Don't most vests say on the label (the one I have seen did) not for rifles or knives, or words to that effect.

That’s when Bello Sanchez allegedly took a rifle and shot Webert in the back.

"Go ahead shoot me."

"But all I've got is this 30-06 rifle."

"That's ok, I'm wearing a bullet proof vest."

I'm surprised he didn't just have his buddies shoot him in the head. I mean, bullet proof vests like, magically protect your body, right?

Webert then fell to the ground and said, “I’ve been shot.” That one had me laughing for a solid ten minutes. Captain Obvious takes a bullet. I don't think I've heard anything that funny in years.

My interceptor vest has a big tag on the inside that says it will protect against 9mm submachinegun, fragmentation and lesser threats. Warning will not protect against knives or sharp objects.

Maybe those retards thought... "Hey 7.62mm is smaller than 9mm, so the vest will work on it!"

In any case these guys are numbnuts and hopefully any jury in the world would throw out their case against the riflemaker/ammo company/vest company.

Another argument for better Mathematics and Physics classes in school. As well as reading Comprehension and Critical Thinking skills development.
A trip to the woodshed wouldn't damage the poor dear either.

Yeah, there's a lawsuit here in that the "bullet" went through the "bulletproof" vest. The mathematically disabled are victims of the gun industry. Ninth grade Physics.

Right then.

Once again class, repeat after me:

If anyone ever asks you to shoot them, 99.999% of the time, the correct answer is NO!, immediately followed by a swift exit, in case the next guy doesn't know the correct answer.

Please see the light and heed my words for the children's sake!

Sanchez’s attorney calls it a tragic accident,



I'm confused about which part of this was the accident?

He deliberately put the vest on.
He deliberatly asked his friend to shoot him.
The idiot friend took aim, so that couldn't be the accidental part.


At least they aren't blaming it on the gun.


I admit I know very little about bullet-proof vests, but how many people would volunteer, let alone ask, to be shot even with a caliber that they knew the vest would stop? Isn't it sort of like asking you friend to hit you with a ball-peen hammer?

Seems to me that it was a waste of a perfectly good bullet-RESISTENT vest.

It's sad actually. Just because the kid did something stupid dosen't mean he should have to live out the rest of his time here on Earth in a wheelchair. Then again, this was pretty stupid. It does add to the meaning of my sig. line, though.

I'm with dinosaur. The tragic accident was the failure of this idiots parents to either use some form of contracaeptive or abstain.

I say pull the plug on the idiot, it's obvious he's been brain-dead for awhile.

This is one of those two-person idiocies that our Sheriff's Office traditionally calls a "dumb-and-dumber" duo.

This calls for the SiG Lady pep rally cheer:

Was the vest stolen? I mean, I know some of the dumbest people I know have high paying jobs in my company, but where did this kid get a vest from? I doubt he saved up to get it!

While it is indeed, a pity that he didn't Darwinate hisself, mostly, I just don't want to be the one (as a taxpayer) buying his dumbass a wheelchair. Can't we make the putz that shot him his bodyservant for life? Makes sense to me - pair up the dummies so's the rest of us don't have to trip over them, yes? It was stupidity borne together, let them live it out that way.

See what "bullet-proof" vests do?

We obviously need a ban on bullet-proof vests! They cause people to be shot.


Seriously though,

If I am ever in a demonstration of the use of a vest, I will definitely take the shot in the gut. Everyone (or so I had thought) knows that a bullet that is stopped by the vest still impacts deeply into the body of the vest wearer, and I certainly would not want my spine to be in that location!

If I am ever in a demonstration of the use of a vest, I will definitely take the vest off and hang it from a target holder.

I was digging through my extensive VHS collection today and found a recording of LAPD SWAT team members demonstrating the "no man down" body armor that they wear.
For the .357 from point-blank, the guy shot himself in the chest!!!
However, when they broke out the .30-06, they strapped the vest to a clay torso... Hmmm, safety first! what a novel concept!
Either that or the guy was crazy enough to take a pistol round but not dumb enough to want for a rifle round to the chest...
No comparison between the "no man down" and a standard type 3A...

Maybe these guys were trying to emulate what I saw, seeing as to how there wasn't a "do not try this at home" warning tag line...

Too many hollywood movies misrepresent what a firearm can do...
I laugh at the people who think we should ban all violent movies, any movie that shows an actor smoking, and anything with a comedic vulgar word or obscene phrase... I agree in as much as that way, the only thing hollywood can screw up is Romance and Drama...

I've been shot by my friends with .177 BB's, 6mm airsoft, and too many to list all the various diameters of paintballs.

IT'S NEVER A FUN THING...

Unless I'm shooting back at them:D

I figure it like this;
It was NO accident and doesn't qualify as tragic. It was deliberate and illegal and deserves no different treatment than a guy who asks his buddy to run him over with the car and see if the airbag deploys...

At least they didn't wear the vest and try pot-shots at police officers until one shot back as a method for testing...

Well...yes he should. Every action we take has a cost. Even when we're young and stupid. In my opinion he should have to pay the price for his mistake. There are plenty of people in wheelchairs who are there through no fault of thier own, I feel sorry for those folks. Not for some punk kid dumb enough to ask to be shot.

And this brings to mind the stupidity-based TV show called "Jackass..." or whatever it was. Self-destructive morons gone public.

I left a message at the KOBF-TV newsroom........ (unless we have some members in the New Mexico area who might know more intimately what's up down there with this case).......

or the bullet was teflon coated

Just for the sake of newcomers.

Teflon does NOT make a bullet able to pierce soft body armour ( or any other type for that matter). Just another urban legend.

What strikes me is that if he ends up paralyzed, our tax money will probably be supporting him for the rest of his life.......



Then again, if he's so moronic to ask to be shot, we probably would have been supporting him anyway.
