"SHEFFIELD, England - A man who shot himself in the groin after drinking 15 pints of beer and stuffing a sawed-off shotgun down his trousers was jailed for five years Tuesday for illegal possession of a firearm. Prosecuting lawyer Andrew Hatton told the court Walker had gone home to get the shotgun after arguing in the pub with lifelong friend Stuart Simpson about whose turn it was to buy a beer."

As funny as this is, and it is, it does point out how Europe's less tolerant gun laws seem to work. If the guy had a pistol (hard to get in Sheffield) somebody could be dead, instead of incarcerated and extremely embarrased. It's your round, innit?
