I'm afraid this man is a very good candidate for a Darwin award for 2020.
A Chesterfield County man who died of an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound last week was spinning a 9 mm semiautomatic pistol on his finger when it discharged, fatally injuring him, police said.
The man, Kenneth Dickerson, 57, was standing outside his home in the 8300 block of Hull Street Road “twirling or spinning the firearm on his finger” when it went off about 6:30 p.m. July 14, said Chesterfield police Lt. Brad Conner.
Dickerson died of his injuries after being taken to a hospital.
“It looks like he was literally playing with the gun, spinning it, and the gun went off,” Conner said.

He'd clearly never heard of the Four Rules of Firearms Safety - or, if he had, he presumably thought they didn't apply to him. One wonders how many people will mourn him, and wish he was still alive. Parents? Siblings? A spouse? Children? All left bereft, due to an act of crass stupidity.
People, please don't play with your guns; and if you see anyone else playing with their guns, particularly in so stupid and irresponsible a manner, get as far away from them as possible, as fast as possible. If you don't, you may get caught up in such a tragedy as well.
