A California man took the right to bear arms to a new level with a homemade cannon near in his mobile home.

Any harmless intentions he may have had exploded on Tuesday, U-T San Diego reported, when a cannonball slammed into the residence and killed a 33-year-old woman. Authorities believe she was his wife.

Sheriff’s Sergeant David Martinez said first-responders were called to a property in Potrero, Calif. at about 12:15 a.m. and found the woman dead from massive injuries.

The man, who was also hurt from the blast, told investigators he ignited a homemade cannon and it went off accidentally. He is currently being treated for his injuries. It is unknown whether or not he will be charged with a crime.

Martinez said between three and five people were in the house at the time, one of whom was a child who was not injured.

Homicide detectives and bomb squad members are handling the investigation.

Wow.....

Human stupidity never ceases to amaze me. Funny how little coverage this has gotten. If it had happened in the South you can bet this would be all over the TV comedy shows. Some smarmy, smartass psuedo-newsman talking about "those stupid southerners blowing up their cousinwives with a cannon they were probably going to use to kill black people" (because you know the only reason a white Southerner buys a gun is to commit a hate crime, right?) *Rolling my eyes*

But after this you got to know that gun owners there in the People's Republic of Kalifornia are sweating bullets, no pun intended. This will no doubt lead Governor Moonbeam to try to foist even more communistic gun laws down the throats of the already demonized and victimized gun owners there.
