Man Wakes Up With Hip Pain And Discovers He's Been Shot

A man in the US woke up with hip pain only to discover he had been shot.

The unnamed man, in his fifties, was sleeping in his single-storey house in Buena Vista Township, Michigan, on Wednesday (1 September) when he was awoken by a sharp pain in his hip.

The man then realised he had a gunshot wound and police responded just before 3am, deputy chief Jim Baker told MLive.

Cops established that the gunshot had been fired from outside and found several shell casings outside the property.

The man was taken to hospital for treatment of a non-life-threatening wound.

LADbible has contacted Buena Vista Township for an update on the case.

In the US, citizens have the right to bear arms under the Second Amendment of the Constitution, however, Joe Biden called for assault rifles to be banned in March following a mass shooting in Colorado in which 10 people were killed.

The POTUS said the US Senate should 'immediately pass' two bills that would close loopholes in firearm background checks.

"I don't need to wait another minute, let alone an hour, to take common-sense steps that will save lives in the future," the President said.

"This is not and should not be a partisan issue... this is an American issue.

"It will save lives, American lives. We have to act.

"We can ban assault weapons and high capacity magazines in this country once again."

Congress banned assault weapons for 10 years back in 1994 and Joe Biden believes a similar rule could be brought in if politicians on both sides work together.

"I got that done when I was a senator. It passed," Biden said. "It was a law for the longest time. And it brought down these mass killings.

"We should do it again."

Unfortunately for Biden, it will be challenging to pass the reforms he desires in the Senate, as most Republicans object to them.

Speaking from the White House in April, Biden said: "The idea that we have so many people dying every single day from gun violence in America is a blemish on our character as a nation."
