|To show the attendees at the gun rally that|
guns don't shoot people, people do, Dazzel Rascali
shot himself in the head. Miraculously the
bullet missed his brain and he will recover.
After dinner and one last song request for the band, the meeting's main speaker, Dazzel Rascali, 42, took the stage to welcome those in attendance. Rascali, a well liked gun lobbyist is known for his unorthodox methods of getting his message across. Tonight was no different. Midway through his presentation, after fielding a question about the mass shootings across the country, he pulled out a Glock pistol and to the astonishment of the diners, held it point blank to his head. "Guns don't kill people," he said, "people do." With that he pulled the trigger, blowing away most of his head. He took two steps backwards and fell to his knees before falling over in a heap.
Women in the audience cried and men moaned, their dining experience ruined witnessing Rascali's life changing event. The hotel Chef rushed up on stage and kept Rascali company until paramedics arrived and took him away. Most thought he would not make it to the hospital, but would learn that miraculously the bullet had missed his brain and doctors gave him an 86% chance of recovery, although the reattachment of his ear was given only a 12% success rating.
OFF THE WALL NEWS was able to briefly talk with Rascali this morning. He was resting comfortably and drinking a Dr.Pepper. The last thing he remembered about last night was the cover band playing "It's Just Like Me", a Paul Revere hit from the '60s.
He wanted everyone in Bridgeport to know that he would be back to finish his talk, he wants to end peoples fear of guns for good. OFF THE WALL NEWS will be there.
