She reached into her cabinet and her .22 revolver fell out.....

A 33-year-old Georgia woman was home alone when she went to get something from a cabinet in her bedroom. She reached into her cabinet and her .22-caliber revolver fell out, hit the nightstand by her bed, and fired a round that hit her in the lower back. The woman remains hospitalized, in stable condition.
"She was very lucky," said the local police, "The .22 caliber is probably one of the most dangerous guns to get shot with, because the bullet goes everywhere once inside the body. It just rolls and tumbles when it hits."

Shotgun Blast Rips Through Apartment Wall, Barely Misses Neighbor

A California man trying to store his shotgun instead shot it off sending pellets through the wall into his neighbor's apartment. The neighbor was surprised to look up and find a chunk of his television set had been blown away. Further examination showed some of the pellets passed narrowly over his head.
Instead of checking to see if his neighbor was okay, the 31-year-old shooter quickly put up a poster to cover the hole in his wall, wrapped his shotgun in a blanket and gave it to a relative.
"You're never expecting a couple bullets to come through your wall," said the neighbor, "but fortunately I'm alive."

"I saw his Nintendo game fall on the floor, I looked around and all I saw was blood coming from his head."

4-year-old Marquel Peters was shot and killed by a stray bullet while sitting next to his mother at church on New Year's Eve. Georgia ballistics investigators think the bullet was most likely fired from an AK-47 some distance away. "This is New Year's Eve and people are out shooting their guns." While illegal, it is not uncommon for this kind of misguided celebration.
But what goes up, must come down, and in this instance the bullet pierced the roof of a church and came down on an innocent child, quietly sitting next to his mother, playing video games.

Here, look at my gun, it's not loaded........

Four convenience store clerks are in the back room of the store. Ehab Ahmed is showing off his gun to another man. He takes the magazine from the handgun and, thinking it is now unloaded, hands it over. The young man takes the gun and in a simple, absentminded move, pulls the trigger. A bullet left in the chamber fires and shoots Ehab in the face. He dies instantly.
A chamber load indicator on the handgun, a device that plainly indicates that a bullet is in the firing chamber, would have alerted Ehab to the fact that the gun was still loaded. If the gun was equipped with a magazine disconnect the trigger could not have been pulled after the magazine was removed.
