A Florida woman with a taste for some late night waffles found out the hard way that you do not preheat without checking the oven first.
According to St. Petersburg Police, the victim, an unidentified 18-year-old, was visiting a friend when she turned on his oven unaware he was storing some ammunition inside. When the oven rose above 280 degrees, she went kablooey sending bits of shrapnel into the woman’s leg and chest, though, thankfully, not enough to kill, according to NBC News. The man won’t be charged either since he had a concealed carry permit and you can store ammo wherever you want in your own damn house.
That said, the oven’s an odd choice, and it doesn’t speak highly of the IQs of the concealed carry crowd. Then again, this is Florida, and it’s hard to see whether correlation is causation.
