Woman Shoots Herself In the Face With Shotgun

    In Fremont Township, MI, a woman was “trying to make a point” and to help illustrate this point, she grabs a shotgun and slams the butt of the shotgun onto the ground. The shotgun fires and the blast catches her in the face.The woman was taken to St. Mary’s of Michigan in Saginaw and she is expected to make a full recovery.

    Here is the article.

    It concerns me the lack of firearm safety but also the safety of the shotgun. Aren’t shotguns tested in drop tests so something like this doesn’t happen? But there are variables that are not mentioned in the article. Which shotgun was it? How old is the shotgun? The mechanics inside could be worn and could be an explanation for the mis-fire.
