Man Killed By Own Gun After MRI Machine Shoots Him
IGNORING WARNING SIGNS, MAN TAKES GUN NEAR MRI MACHINE AND DIES
It’s hard to know what to say about unnecessary gun related deaths at this point. If you are critical, the gun nuts will get upset. If you point out that stupidity is involved, the gun nuts get upset. And it you acknowledge how if there had been no gun present, no one would have -or could have- been killed. So I won’t say or intimate any of those things. That being not said, I will say that it’s refreshing to not say any of those things relating to a man killed by his own gun that didn’t happen in the United States. This time, a man was killed by his own gun after an MRI machine shot him in the stomach.
MRI MACHINE EMITTED A POWERFUL MAGNETIC FIELD WHICH PULLED GUN OUT
If that sounds confusing to you, then pay attention. Especially if you own a gun and are tempted to open or close carry it into a hospital. Even more especially if that hospital visit involves any proximity whatsoever to an MRI machine. If you totally recall, powerful magnets are a theme in the Terminator movies, used to delay the liquid metal assassin robots. And yes, there’s even one scene that involves an MRI machine, because it’s a powerful magnet. Literally every MRI room in the world has warning signs to remove all metal objects from your person before entering. And this is yet another reason why.
MRI MACHINE ENDS UP SHOOTING MAN IN STOMACH IN FRONT OF MOTHER
The why this time involves a man in Brazil, attorney and gun evangelist Leandro Mathias de Novaes. Novaes went with his mother for an MRI scan at Laboratorio Cura in Sao Paolo, Brazil. I suppose it’s because he’s a gun evangelist that he simply had to take his gun with him, all the way into the MRI room. And when the MRI machine was activated, the powerful magnetic field pulled the gun out of his waistband, causing it to fire a bullet into his stomach. The 40-year-old eventually died from the shooting, despite already being at the hospital.
So I will refrain yet again from getting anywhere near the obvious statement that guns kill people. Maybe I’ll simply say that an MRI machine is nothing to trifle with?
