Minnesota, DUMBASSes think a book is going to stop a 50 caliber bullet. They did it for Youtube views and now one is dead and the others in jail in Halstad, Minnesota.

For Youtube views??  I wonder what book it was?

A 19-year-old woman shot at a book her boyfriend was holding against his chest, killing him at close range outside their northwestern Minnesota home in what was a video-recorded stunt gone awry, according to a criminal complaint filed Wednesday.

She was charged with second-degree manslaughter in Norman County District Court and remains in a regional jail in Crookston in connection with the shooting Monday night in Halstad of her 22-year-old boyfriend.  Sheriff Jeremy Thornton said Wednesday morning that the girlfriend, who is pregnant, will remain in jail and be connected by video to a Norman County court proceeding early Wednesday afternoon.

The boyfriend held up the book — described by County Attorney James Brue as a hardcover encyclopedia — and she pulled the trigger on a .50-caliber Desert Eagle pistol, trying to see whether the bullet would go through, according to the criminal complaint. The Desert Eagle is described by retailer Cabela’s in an online ad as “one of the world’s most powerful semiautomatic handguns.”
