J.R. Absher from the Newshound tells us about two teenage boys shoplifting a canister of black powder at the local Wal-Mart in Bayou Black, Louisiana.
According to the report the long fingers wanted to make a bomb. In the kitchen one of the idiots flicked a still burning cigarette butt, which happens to land in close proximity to the open black powder canister. The result of this thoughtless action was a huge explosion damaging the kitchen and dining room. Both youths were treated for minor burns before they were booked.
You’ll have to head over to the Newshound to read the full story where J.R. posted it in the appropriately named category “You Can’t Make This Stuff Up”. It’s hard to believe that people can be that stupid. On a more serious note, I fear that the anti gun groups will be over that incident like the maggots over a rotting carcass.
