Remember Analogies?

Remember analogies from your high school and college years? The ones that read _____ is to _____ as _____ is to _____?

Well, here's one based on based on one of today's news stories:

Glock is to negligent discharge as pit bull is to mauling.

Police in Florida said a man who accidentally shot himself on his way home from a gun safety class is expected to recover from his injury.

Boynton Beach police said Eric Morkert stopped his pickup truck while driving home from a gun safety class and sat in the bed of the vehicle to examine his new Glock 17 handgun, WPBF-TV, West Palm Beach, Fla., reported Monday.

Police said Morkert had removed the gun's magazine and was manipulating the slide when it fired off a round that struck him in the leg.

Is it only Glocks that cause ND's? No, no more than pit bulls are responsible for all dog maulings.

You won't lose money betting that way, though.

And I use the tag "usual suspects" in this instance to refer to Glocks...and pit bulls.
