Irish Crime Boss OWNED After Violating Coopers Basic Rules

What you get if you violate all 4 of Jeff Coopers “Rules of Firearm Safety”:

Philip Collopy, 29, a member of a gang in Limerick, Ireland, apparently did not realize his Glock 9mm pistol was loaded when he pointed it at his head and pulled the trigger in front of shocked onlookers.

Collopy, who was aligned to the Keane-Collopy gang in a long-running gangland feud, had emptied the magazine from the handgun, but there was still a bullet in the chamber.

Full Story – HERE

Seeing as he was a member of a gang in Limerick, I figured this post deserved a good related Limerick poem. I failed to come up with anything that didn’t violate the rules of form though (HERE).

Can you guys come up with anything good?

  • For those that are not familiar with the late Marine Lt. Col. Jeff Cooper’s rules of firearm safety:

  1. All guns are always loaded. Even if they are not, treat them as if they are.
  2. Never let the muzzle cover anything you are not willing to destroy. (For those who insist that this particular gun is unloaded, see Rule 1.)
  3. Keep your finger off the trigger till your sights are on the target. This is the Golden Rule. Its violation is directly responsible for about 60 percent of inadvertent discharges.
  4. Identify your target, and what is behind it. Never shoot at anything that you have not positively identified.

There once was man named Jeff Cooper,
Who’s safety rules were just super,
If the rules had been read,
Philip might not be dead,
But instead he went out in a stupor.

There once was a banger from Lim’rick
who carried a GLOCK and was slick.
He raised to his head
his dispenser of lead
and forgot to ensure it went “click.”

Well, I’ll bet he was mighty surprised for about a quarter of a second. Actually not: the bullet probably travelled faster than his nerve impulses. But his friends on the other hand have undoubtedly learned a valuable lesson…..

Yea probably would have been dead before he hit the ground. I agree, for his friends that would be a life changing experience.

Phil was a cat from the beat,
rules in his mind had no seat.
Put his glock to his head,
and now is quite dead,
with his brains all over the street.

There once was a ganger named Philip
Who on drug and drink chose to fill up,
didn’t know that his gun
carried nine rounds PLUS ONE
The result was much more than a fillip!
