Because everybody deserves the right to shoot animals, a 46-year old quadriplegic will now be hunting in New Jersey with the assistance of a mouth-operated 12-gauge shotgun.
Jamie Cap, 46, was injured in an accident 30 years ago while playing American football. A head-on tackle resulted in a neck injury that left him a quadriplegic and robbed him of hunting, one of his passions.
"I don't know if there are words," he said. "I'm so happy. When you find you can do something again after 30 years, you can't put a price on that. Some people think it's nothing, but try being paralysed for 30 years and then come talk to me."
For a quadriplegic, firing a shotgun requires help from a companion. In Mr Cap's case, a friend sets up the contraption, safety on, on Mr Cap's wheelchair and Mr Cap aims the shotgun by moving the toggle switch with his mouth. Once his partner releases the safety, Mr Cap fires by sipping on the breathing tube.
BLAM! *bleeding* Ugh. Coke. on. right.

Thanks to Malice, who feels sorry for New Jersey deer, but only because they live in Jersey.
Note: Space-Bat bravely passed away three years ago today. GONE BUT NEVER FORGOTTEN.

This is a designer shower head that was on display at Milan Design Week 2010 that looks like a deer's face. Water comes out of it's mouth and is perfect for the outdoorsy type and furries. But not me. I want a shower head that looks like a woman's face. I also want to pour ... / Continue →
This is Chris P. Bacon, a rudely named piglet who was born without the use of his back legs. But now he cruises around like a pro thanks to the K'NEX wheelchair fashioned for him by Florida veterinarian Dr. Len Lucero. Think 'Charlotte's Web' but with zero spiders and anythin... / Continue →
