Woman exclaims “We’re Ready For Ferguson” Before Accidentally Shooting Herself In The Head

Becca Cambell arguing with police

Becca Cambell arguing with police

Thugs are once again raging in Ferguson, looking for new places to loot and new people to blame for their failures in life. 26-year-old Becca Campbell saw the unrest and went out to buy a gun. Her 33-year-old boyfriend said that they were worried about the Ferguson riots and wanted to protect themselves.

The two were riding together in a car when the gun went off. He said that Becca was waving the gun around in a joking manner while exclaiming “we’re ready for Ferguson.”

Still acting playfully, she pointed the gun in his direction. The boyfriend was startled by this action and swerved the car while trying to duck away. He accidentally rear-ended another car in the process, causing the gun to off and strike Campbell in the head. She was rushed to the hospital where she died. An investigation by local authorities into what exactly happened is still underway. St. Louis police officers have not yet confirmed all the details in Becca Campbell’s boyfriend’s story and are waiting for the return of lab results related to the firearm.

A reporter for the Post-Dispatch, Paul Hampel, actually took a photo of Campbell protesting in Ferguson back in August. The photo shows her arguing with a police officer.

    I don’t like you. You do know Becca or anything about her, so please keep your opinions and comments to yourself (followed by unnecessary abbreviated expletives).

    OMG? glad gun manufacture have SUPER DUPER DISCLOSURE pamphlets in the cases. –Do not EVER hold the loaded weapon. DO not waive a loaded gun; do not own a gun if you are even a little bit of an IDIOT, MORON, RETARDED, STUPID, CRAZY, LAZY or just plain imbred>? IF YOU CAN READ THIS- PUT THE GUN DOWN NOW!!!!!!! YES YOU “””DUMB ASS”””””

  3. LMFAO ROTF! I only hope this dumb negress did not procreate before offing herself.

  4. you all keep it up and you will get your fight. Just sayin

  5. Can you shoot it or does it just look pretty

  6. look at the Springfield Armory XDM 45 single action…I have one with the 4.5 inch barrel…it holds 16 in the clip…also comes with a an indicator when ones in the pipe…2 safeties..palm and trigger–

    No Brain, No Pain, the gun isn’t going to go off unless you have your finger on the trigger.

  8. Anthony Atpeace Chambers II | 11/28/2014 at 8:57 AM |

    i hear and see the most ignorant comments on here. smdh… god bless you all!!

  9. Jeff Smith | 11/27/2014 at 9:10 PM |

    Gun control mean hitting your intended target. Thanks for your service to the community, sir!

  10. No point to carry a gun and not have one in the chamber. You wont have a time out to rack the slide in a life threatening situation. And if you do it probably wasn’t life threatening in most cases.

  11. Tired of stupidity | 11/27/2014 at 6:06 PM |

    Go burn a car or loot a business. She was careless playing with a gun. Sh*t happens.

  12. Richard Winchester | 11/27/2014 at 3:09 PM |

    I am happy to see that Becca used her 2nd amendment right and protected us all from herself. 🙂 That story has the happiest ending of them all!!!

  13. James Smith | 11/27/2014 at 10:39 AM |

    Do you see what happens when you let monkeys play with people things!?

  14. Donna Johnson | 11/27/2014 at 5:33 AM |

    The protection they needed was a padded cell.

  15. Donna Johnson | 11/27/2014 at 5:32 AM |

    Exactly my thought.

  16. Donna Johnson | 11/27/2014 at 5:29 AM |

    Are all the people in Ferguson, stupid?
    Not realizing what can occur with the actions they take?
    I find it hard to believe they bought the gun for protection, when acting so foolishly.
    She is another person that paid the ultimate price for acting and not thinking.

    Your the reason we have issues like Ferguson Mo. Get a job.

  19. Thomas Lindell | 11/26/2014 at 10:33 PM |

    Stupid people grr

  20. John Wyscaver | 11/26/2014 at 9:32 PM |

    Wow your an ignorant one aren’t you? She killed herself out of her own stupidity. For those of us that have a weapon system & the training to back it up, not to mention have a brain know this to be irresponsible. She wasn’t ready to own a fire arm let alone “ready for Ferguson”. So instead of wanting to pick a fight with people that are smarter & more responsible then you learn that just because you can doesn’t mean you should. I feel no sympathy for your lost friend she was an idiot that could’ve known better but decided against better judgement, which seemed to be her default, then to purchase a fire arm that she wasn’t ready to handle nor respect it enough to handle it properly. a gun isn’t something you wave around playfully nor show it off unless its in the proper place to do so. I( could go on & continue to belittle your so called friend but I got better things to do.

  21. Michael | 11/26/2014 at 5:49 PM |

    its blackish

  22. B. Smith | 11/26/2014 at 3:41 PM |

    Yo Justice. Don’t bag on him. You aint know Tim………….

  23. Robert Henry Eller | 11/26/2014 at 1:52 PM |

    “We’re ready for Ferguson.” Unfortunately for Becca, she was not ready for a far greater danger: Becca.

  24. Tim McCarthy | 11/26/2014 at 1:34 PM |

    How appropriate.

  25. Sandy Ratigan | 11/26/2014 at 1:10 PM |

    I grew up with guns, this was her own fault for not respecting the power she held in her hands, ridiculous woman, and now she’s dead, sad

  26. Susan Penrod | 11/26/2014 at 12:19 PM |

    How is it exactly that you can “ain’t know” someone?? Take a lesson in English and learn to spell. The woman had her finger on the trigger of a loaded weapon that she was “playing with”. Stupidity often pays off in spades. She was stupid and she paid the price.

  27. oscar1939 | 11/26/2014 at 11:06 AM |

    The gene pool? But they have probably already procreated.

  28. Don Scoby | 11/26/2014 at 8:42 AM |

    First rule, “keep your booger hook of the bang switch”.

  29. Cat woman | 11/26/2014 at 8:19 AM |

    I carry a revolver as well. That is why I practice shooting. I shoot 96%. But my finger never touches the trigger until I am ready to shoot. If you are going to carry a weapon, get the training.

  30. Cat woman | 11/26/2014 at 8:15 AM |

    Guns don’t just go off. If you don’t know how to handle a gun, don’t. Whole things sounds suspicious to me.

  31. Zaphod Smith | 11/26/2014 at 7:59 AM |

    She just did..

  32. Bob Soldner | 11/26/2014 at 6:17 AM |

    And you can’t fix stupid.

  33. Gehen sie saugen eine Schrotflinte…

  34. If you need more than six, you bit off more than you can chew and should have brought a rifle… I don’t care what kind of a weapon people want, it is your 2nd Amendment “right to choose,” but some of these ássholes just pull the trigger and pée all over themselves…

  35. Some of these people get the Darwin award… I’m a revolver man… If you need more than six .357s, you bit off more than you can chew and should have brought a rifle….

  36. Cheryl Jenkins Taylor | 11/26/2014 at 4:04 AM |

    I agree. She obviously was not using a thread of common sense and it was in all fairness a very dumb thing to do. But to say that your glad she is dead, or she deserved it or the comment of her brains being all over the dashboard or some of the other comments, I just think that’s very harsh to say. During stories like this I think of family members and some being kids

  37. Tim, i hope you buy a gun and shoot yourself in the head out of ignorance too… Your grammar is atrocious enough to give me that opinion.

  38. She looked like a Walmart refugee anyways….Good riddance.

  39. justice | 11/26/2014 at 2:18 AM |

    Stupid comes in all colors!

  40. justice | 11/26/2014 at 2:17 AM |

    Doubt it! She had previously been part of the protest group. She probably bought the gun so she could go loot and pillage as many of the other “peaceful protesters” did to “honor Michael Brown’s memory”

  41. justice | 11/26/2014 at 2:12 AM |

    Just a little protection while they did their Christmas shopping, a.k.a. looting!

  42. Justice | 11/26/2014 at 2:09 AM |

    What language is this, Tim? Ignorantish?

  43. Justice | 11/26/2014 at 2:08 AM |


  44. TheLight | 11/26/2014 at 1:19 AM |

    I want to know who would sell a gun to someone so irresponsible.

  45. James Hamilton | 11/26/2014 at 12:30 AM |

    only a stupid fuck would wave a loaded gun around so yes she was fucking ignorant

  46. if you’re defending this dumb ass chick that shot herself, I know all i need to know as far as how intelligent she was. People who wave guns around, point them at their boyfriend while driving are stupid as hell!!! Maybe you could put that on her Tombstone, “damn, she was stupid as hell, that’s why she be dead”.

  47. Ferguson has one less Rioter .

  48. Mf fuck you, you ain’t know Becca or shit about her so keep yo rude ass opinionated comments to yo mf self ol’ bitch ass mf..

  49. In this case it’s permanently fixed.

  50. chevymon77 | 11/25/2014 at 8:33 PM |

    This sounds too fishy…..I don’t believe it actually happened this way.

  51. mike house | 11/25/2014 at 7:03 PM |

  52. Ryan Lindow | 11/25/2014 at 6:27 PM |

    Darwinism at its best… it’s natures way of saying you’re an idiot and I made a mistake in creating you

  53. Another Darwin Award.

  54. Anthony | 11/25/2014 at 5:44 PM |

    Gotta know how to act appropriately with a live weapon, as well as a non-live weapon.

  55. John McDonald | 11/25/2014 at 5:21 PM |

    Evidently the DC Gazette has never heard of editors.

  56. afftongrown | 11/25/2014 at 5:18 PM |

    If she was old enough to own a gun, should have known it wasn’t. a toy!

  57. Mark Wurz | 11/25/2014 at 4:20 PM |

    if that isn’t the dumbest thing I have heard it is awful close. Right up there with lighting a match to see if a gas tank is full.

  58. Derrick Howard | 11/25/2014 at 3:57 PM |

    New gun control mandate: You must have an IQ higher than your shoe size to buy a gun. All kidding aside this kind of ignorance is very sad.

  59. The liberals will love this one! LMAO

  60. 1grayrebel | 11/25/2014 at 3:39 PM |

    I bet her boyfriend was black. In my opinion why would a white women be protesting with black people?

  61. Catherine Mammana | 11/25/2014 at 3:34 PM |


  62. Yep…

  63. Marvin Johnson | 11/25/2014 at 2:16 PM |

    Come on now… we all know that somehow it will turn out to be the polices fault!!! Isn’t everything??

  64. Doug mau | 11/25/2014 at 2:07 PM |

    The gun did what she wanted. Gun are weapons and should be treated with respect they are not toys. This is not the guns fault. I’ve owned gun for 50 year and none have accidentally kill any thing.

  65. Pamela Rather Powell | 11/25/2014 at 1:43 PM |

    At least in this situation an innocent bystander didn’t end up getting killed. Anyone “playfully” waiving a loaded gun around and ends up shooting themselves and dying, got what they deserved, no matter what color their skin. And I don’t see that she bought it for protection from protesters since she was not home trying to stay away from the violence and was instead driving around with her boyfriend playfully waiving a loaded gun around in the confines of a moving vehicle to where there were protesters. They were probably driving around looking for an opportunity to fire the weapon when “BANG” she got it.

  66. Don’t be silly. She has brains. Well, right over there and on the floor boards too.

  67. Play stupid games win stupid prizes.

  68. Arrest the nearest cop!

  69. KristenT | 11/25/2014 at 1:27 PM |

    Wait.. they have a picture of her arguing with a cop beforehand and say she was a protester but now we’re to believe she wasn’t going to continue “protesting”? Why do I doubt the story of her getting the gun for protection? I get the feeling she and her boyfriend were going to take advantage of the situation

  70. Pamela Rather Powell | 11/25/2014 at 1:24 PM |

    White, black, purple or yellow, it doesn’t matter. If you play with guns like they are a toy and end up shooting yourself you got what you deserved. It is called the consequences of your actions.

  71. James Shoemaker | 11/25/2014 at 1:23 PM |

    Look at all the hatred on here. We the people divided will never govern the government. No wonder why the government laughs at us, and never listens. they know we have no power because we cant get a long and stand for one another. But yet all you want do is your crying and bitching about it all. When race trump’s being a American . This is what you have . Kennedy said not what this nation can do for you. But what can I do for this nation. But they made sure they killed that didn’t they. Kennedy sure did get justices. Didn’t he ?

  72. Kimberlie | 11/25/2014 at 1:22 PM |

    Common knowledge. You don’t put your finger on the trigger until you’re ready to fire it!

  73. You can legally have one in the chamber and a mag here in Missouri. Agreed, she shouldn’t haven’t have been playing with it in the first place, nor should she have had her finger on the trigger at all…

  74. I”m white and yes she got what she deserved. stupid is as stupid does.

  75. yes self inflicted !!! you act stupid you are stupid ! funny! how she managed to get a gun in the first place, was no doubt on her way to protest with the rest of the mongers, guess she did not go to gun safety classes on how not to shoot yourself and never aim a gun at others! stupid is as stupid does! just another low life trying to cause havoc in the world and to make it worse she was a white girl who fell into the well of kool-aid

  76. 1Shot1Kill | 11/25/2014 at 12:58 PM |

    Gun control has nothing to do with how many rounds you have or if one is in the pipe. As a law enforcement officer I carry 40 rounds of ammunition. But my magazines only hold 39. So I have one in the pipe. No gun control isn’t about how it’s loaded. It’s about how it’s used. Rule 1 assume every gun is loaded. Rule 2 always keep gun pointed in a safe direction. RULE 3. UNTIL YOU HAVE MADE A CONSCIOUS DECISION TO KILL WHAT IS IN FRONT OF YOU DO NOT PUT YOUR FUCKING FINGER ON THE TRIGGER

  77. Gods way of weeding out the stupid

  78. Skylar A Seals | 11/25/2014 at 12:51 PM |

    Apparently she wasn’t ready. Obviously she was exercising poor weapon control and had her primary safety where it isn’t supposed to be unless you are going to engage. People die senselessly every day, but I don’t believe this was senseless. Seems more like instant karma to me. “Playing” is not something you do with a weapon. She could have hurt someone else that had nothing to do with her stupidity, at least it was only herself. One less bad set of genes that needs to be cleansed.

  79. DoritoDorito | 11/25/2014 at 12:46 PM |

    One less white liberal moron to deal with (and I am a liberal, albeit a very moderate minded one). Anyhow, not a big loss. May she continue in heaven (or hell) co-opting the suffering of other people for her own aspirational goals of sharing victimhood. Self imposed victimhood is the latest and greatest aspirational goal for white millenials – it erases the guilt they feel for being born white. It also makes them the biggest racists in the room – their voices are louder and heard more than the voices of black people who are rarely allowed the same level of volume as white liberal millenials – look at the blogs – white run blogs writing about black issues – if these kids were not not sniveling racists in their own right, they would be giving their black “friends” a greater opportunity to share in the media visibility that they dominate and control. RACISTS.

  80. Skylar A Seals | 11/25/2014 at 12:39 PM |

    what book was that? I have been trying to re-read that forever. I hope you get the reference.

  81. Ravn Rey | 11/25/2014 at 12:36 PM |

    probable consequences? Just like as if you illegally smoke pot, rob a store, punch an officer, charge at the same officer, there will be probable consequences!

    lordy Lordy stupid liberals natural selection in action

  83. Ryan Reed | 11/25/2014 at 11:56 AM |

    sure the hell does. first off, why was it loaded with one in the chamber, poor gun control right there. second “Playfully” waiving it around???? whoops, play and gun should not be in the same sentence rofl. Darwin award winner.

    Why she appears white.

  92. Candice Warlick-Davis | 11/25/2014 at 10:50 AM |

    I believe the photo of the lady above was a white woman. I guess thats why she bought the gun. She feared blacks would kill her but she did it herself.

  93. Delwyn Campbell | 11/25/2014 at 10:48 AM |

    I just looked at the photo; as it turns out, Becca Campbell was a white woman, not a black woman. Do you all still think that she got what she deserved?

  94. Shows you just can’t Fix STUPID

  95. Delwyn Campbell | 11/25/2014 at 10:45 AM |

    “In as much as you did not do it to the least of these, you did not do it to Me.” If God “takes no pleasure in the death of the wicked,” on what basis do you rejoice over this death? It was a senseless tragedy, that took place because neither she nor her boyfriend practiced firearms safety. Even so, she did not “deserve to die,” she deserved to get corrected regarding proper firearms safety.

  96. Some people’s children, They say it was the Police but you see they are KILLING themselfs

  101. Dee DeChant | 11/25/2014 at 10:09 AM |

    The gun didn’t go off because he rear ended another car, the gun went off because she was ignorant and had her finger on the trigger. Please don’t make it seem as though the crash caused this. Full responsibility lies on her.

  102. Funkmaster5000 | 11/25/2014 at 9:38 AM |

  109. The best thing that could have happened to her guns are not toys and should not be taken lightly.I am glad she only harmed herself and not an innocent man woman or child with her behavior.

  112. Bob Chapman | 11/25/2014 at 7:21 AM |

    Bought the gun for defense, that’s why they were in their car and not safe in their home…

  113. Morons! The gene pool just got a chlorine treatment.
