More Magic Bullets

In October, a 28-year-old man, reeling from a domestic argument in Port Richey, Fla., put a gun to his head and, against his girlfriend’s pleas, fired. As a neighbor across the street stood on her porch, the suicide bullet left the victim’s head and made three wounds in the neighbor’s leg, sending her to the hospital. About a week later, on the Norwegian island of Vesteroy, a moose hunter missed his target but hit a distant obscured cottage, wounding a man in his 70s as he answered nature’s call. He was airlifted to Oslo’s Ullevaal University Hospital.
