Greetings fellow Bizarros:
Just where does the weapons manufacturer 'Glock' get off producing firearms that discharge? The atrocious record of these guns firing is long and storied.
One of the best examples was caught on video. You may have seen this clip in Bizarre News before. This poor, hapless officer is shot by the deadly Glock while teaching a gun safety seminar. If you haven't seen the video you can click the link below.

Yet another disturbing example came to light when another police officer who was shot by a Glock brought a lawsuit against the manufacturer.
Los Angeles police officer Enrique Chavez was shot in the back by his own weapon. The off-duty officer had forgotten that he had stowed his loaded .45-caliber Glock, upholstered and with a round apparently chambered, securely under the front seat of his Ford Ranger, I am assuming according to department regulations concerning the proper transport and storage of firearms.
With the weapon safely out of sight and out of mind, although unfortunately not out of reach, Chavez loaded his 3-year-old son into the vehicle. Since the streets of Los Angeles are so safe to drive Chavez did not secure the toddler in a child safely seat.
The inquisitive fingers of the boy soon found the weapon while he was crawling around the vehicle, and that is when the treacherous Glock fired, hitting the officer in the back.
Chavez is now suing the company claiming the Glock 21 had a light trigger and lacked a grip safety.
Perhaps, if this suit is successful, we can finally live in a world where you can hand a toddler a loaded handgun and feel confident you won't get shot in the back.

Diamond Ring Found 9 Years After Being Flushed
A New Jersey woman was reunited with her diamond encrusted wedding band almost a decade after accidentally flushing it down her toilet. Paula Stanton, 60, said she was cleaning her bathroom nine years ago when the gold ring, which her husband Michael Stanton had given her to celebrate their 20th wedding anniversary, slipped off of her finger. Paula still held on to the hope that she would find the original, asking Somers Point Public Works Department Crew Chief Ted Gogol two years ago if he'd ever spotted the ring during his work. While Gogol initially answered no, the inquiry paid off when Stanton and her husband arrived home from a Thanksgiving trip and found a note on their door telling them to contact the public works department. "I figured they had to work near our house and had to dig up the yard or something," Stanton told the Press of Atlantic City. Much to her surprise, Gogol had found the missing ring while doing routine maintenance on a nearby sewer line. "I was only in a manhole less than 400 feet away from their house when I saw something shiny sitting in the mud and debris. I realized it was a ring, and I remembered the woman who was looking for a ring," he said. The couple's initials were inscribed on the inside of the ring, allowing Gogol to confirm it was Stanton's and return it to her.
Hotel replaced Bibles with 'Fifty Shades'
CROSTHWAITE, England - The owner of a hotel in Britain said he replaced the room Bibles with copies of "Fifty Shades of Grey" to reflect the modern secular society. Jonathan Denby, owner of the Damson Dene Hotel in Crosthwaite, England, said he decided to replace the Bibles with copies of E.L. James' erotic novel because he decided the Bibles were "wholly inappropriate" for bedrooms in a secular society, NBC News reported Wednesday. "I was thinking originally of putting in a book by Ayn Rand -- 'Atlas Shrugged' was my first thought," Denby said. "(But) because everybody is reading 'Fifty Shades of Grey,' we thought it would be a hospitable thing to do, to have this available for our guests, especially if some of them were a little bit shy about buying it because of its reputation." The Rev. Michael Woodcock, who oversees services at St. Mary's Parish Church, told The Westmoreland Gazette he was dismayed by the hotelier's decision. "It is a great shame that Bibles have been removed from rooms and very inappropriate to have been replaced by an explicit erotic novel," he said. "The Bible remains a source of comfort and inspiration that many people do find helpful."
