The stupidity, I think, speaks for itself here. Turns out he was riding in a car with a bunch of GIRLS, showing off ahem, playing with his gun (and if THAT isn't a metaphor for something), and it went off.

*The IKEA meatball/horsemeat scandal that I posted about just last month was stupid, but a very different KIND of stupid.
