There is no way in which “gun” and “satellite TV installation” make any sense. I think it’s about time that law makers passed a law against using your gun as a power tool (I know I normally don’t come out in favor of legislation but this time I think it’s warranted):

Officials are trying to determine whether to file charges against a man who fatally shot his wife while trying to install a satellite television system in their home.

Patsy D. Long, 34, of Deepwater, was pronounced dead early Saturday evening after being shot in the chest with a .22-caliber handgun. Her husband, Ronald Long, fired the shot from the inside of their home after several unsuccessful efforts to punch a hole through the exterior wall using other means.
The woman, who was outside the house, was hit by the second of two shots fired by Ronald Long, the Henry County Sheriff’s Department said.

He can be charged with manslaughter but I think in a case like this, it would be good to pile on charges.
