Missouri Man Drives Over Garbage Fire With Car Full Of Bullets — Hilarity Ensues

The small city of Liberty, Missouri, has now become the site of a great victory for gun safety and freedom in America — though one man’s automobile had to make the ultimate sacrifice when its owner stocked it full of ammunition and inadvertently caused it to explode.

The Clay County Sheriff’s Office posted Tuesday on Facebook:

This afternoon a deputy went to investigate after seeing black smoke coming from a field near Old 210 Highway & Bluff Road, and found a car fully engulfed in flames. Ammunition in that burning car began discharging so he and responding firefighters kept their distance until it was safe to extinguish it.

The owner said that he was trying to burn trash when the field caught fire. Then he decided to drive over the flames to try and put it out, which caused his tire to catch fire and well, you can see how that turned out.

Liberty and Fishing River Firefighters were able to put the fire out safely.

A spokesman for the sheriff’s office told the Kansas City Star that the owner declined to file a police report for any possible insurance claim: “It seems like he’s just going to have to take a loss on that vehicle because I don’t think they’re going to cover it.”

"To the extent that this propaganda takes hold, it makes it more difficult for us to really see this as an authoritarian versus democracy battle."
