Banned Phrase of the Day- “the gun went off”

OK – apologies to Greg Gutfeld as I blatantly rip-off his Banned Word or Phrase of the Day concept from the Five. Here is mine for 3-29-2013:

“The gun went off”

NO the gun did NOT “go off” ! Guns -with the VERY RARE exception of some very junky assed models do NOT just go off. When someone says that they are invariably talking about a negligent discharge. It’s especially irritating when members of Law Enforcement use the phrase.


  1. Good one, Larry. That’s like a guy telling his girlfriend that he ‘unintentionally slept with her sister! 🙂
