    A cyclist died after accidentally shooting himself on Thursday afternoon, police said.

    Troy Earl Smith Jr., 25, was found lying on a street in St. Petersburg, Florida, with a gunshot wound to the chest. He later was pronounced dead at a local hospital.

    After reviewing video from nearby businesses and talking to witnesses, detectives determined that Smith was riding his bike when the handgun he was carrying in his jacket pocket discharged.

    Is that a gun in your pocket, or are you just glad to see me?

    I don’t have much sympathy, or concern for these individuals. Almost all of these situations are the result of stupidity.

    It’s not the government’s roll to protect people from themselves.

    I believe the debate is whether or not the governmeNt should protect the rest of us from these stupid people.

    So far, the government isn’t doing so hot in the “protection” business.

    Nebraska professor: “So far, the government isn’t doing so hot in the “protection” business.”

    Yeah, damn those seat belt and air bags. And what’s with the disappearance of the LA smog? Who here misses the Tacoma Aroma?
