For those of you who have firearms in your home or are hunters.  It's time to think about epilepsy and firearms safety.  I know....you're probably sitting there reading this thinking to yourself, "I've been around guns my entire life."  "I know how to handle guns safely,"  Well, I was the same way,....until October 3rd.  I was raised around guns and was in the Army for 10 years.  I "knew" how to handle guns safely.  I live in the country.  We have a tremendous stray dog problem.  I was bitten by a rabid dog on Good Friday.  On Oct. 3rd, I was out back playing frisbee with my dog and ha d a pistol with me incase of a stray.  No big deal, I am extremely good with a pistol.  The last thing I remember was taking it out of my waist band with my right hand because everytime I threw the frisbee hit it with my elbow and put the gun in my left hand to put it on my left side.  The next thing I know.....I'm in the ER with a gun shot wound to my right shoulder.  When I seize, my arms draw up across my chest.  SO....please becareful and do not hunt or use firearms if you do not have any warning prior to a seizure or are not with someone who can tell that you are about to have a seizure.  I was lucky....Please learn from my mistake
