Man Jailed for Shooting Off His Testicles
LONDON (Reuters) - A British man who accidentally shot himself in the testicles after drinking 15 pints of beer was jailed for five years on Tuesday for possessing an illegal firearm, a court spokesman said.
David Walker, 28, was arguing with a friend at a pub in South Yorkshire, northern England, when he went home to get his sawed-off shotgun, which he jammed into his trousers.
But as he walked back to the pub, the gun went off, blasting pellets into his testicles. Doctors later removed what remained of his testicles during emergency surgery.
Walker admitted possessing a prohibited weapon at a hearing in June at the court in Sheffield.

Maybe not having testicles was punishment enough? However, its pretty stupid to stick a gun into your pants.

Heh heh heh.....I'm sorry, I just can't even imagine anybody shoving a shotgun in his pants, on matter how short it is. Too bad he didn't die, he would have qualified for a Darwin award.

Well I am sure he learned a valuable lesson from that never stick anything down your pants it could be hazardous to your privates.

no he would have got the 5 years for illegal possession of a firearm and for carrying a loaded firearm into a public place - our gun laws are somewhat tighter than yours don't forget.

shooting his balls off is just an added bonus to 'campaign for stopping the degeneration of the UK gene pool'

I know, I was kidding. You get the same sentence (if found guilty) in America.
