Licensed carry holders are the most responsible gun owners EVAH and other cherished wingnut myths, debunked here in a cursory search of the Bing machine:
• In Washington State:
The woman, who is licensed to carry the gun, told police she was taking things out of her purse and grabbed the gun near the barrel. When she put it back inside, it went off.
The bullet grazed her palm and struck two friends. One woman was hit in the stomach; the other had her back grazed.
• In Michigan:
TEKONSHA, Mich. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) – A 7-year-old girl from Tekonsha is speaking out after being accidentally shot while swimming with her siblings in a backyard pool. The shooting happened around 5 p.m. Tuesday in the 6500 block of 14 and a half mile road.
Michigan State Police say the shooter was a neighbor who was using his 9 millimeter handgun for target practice.
Police tell us the man in his 30s also has a concealed weapons permit and should have known what he was doing.
The mother, Jodi Scherer tells Newschannel 3 that bullet barely missed hitting her daughter in the chest and whizzed right by her 2-year-old sister’s head who was standing next to her.
GRAND BLANC TOWNSHIP — Gun law debates are heating up as readers comment on the story of a man arrested for carrying a fake CIA ID while carrying a gun and wearing body armor.
Cassidy J. Delavergne, who has since been released on bond, was attending “Red 2″ at the NCG Trillium theater on Tuesday, July 30 when he was taken out of the theater. He was armed with a 9mm handgun and bullet proof vest. Police confiscated an ID card with the CIA emblem and a golden rectangle which appeared similar to a security chip found on real federal badges, according to court records.
Police also found more than 100 rounds of ammunition in his vehicle.
While Delavergne had a concealed pistol’s license, he was charged with having the fake CIA badge. His CPL has since been suspended by Genesee County.
Police arrested Nathan David Wiesner, 23, of 50 W. Main Street Apt. 16 A in Westborough at the Westender in response to a call that a man who was stalking an employee was outside the building with a gun, according to court documents.
“Dispatch received a frantic 911 call,” wrote Gough who was among the officers that responded to the scene. “Dispatch stated that Nathan is licensed to carry in Massachusetts, owns a .44 Magnum which he always carries on his person.”
When police approached Wiesner — parked in a black Chevrolet Cavalier in front of the liquor store in the Westender plaza — he provided them with his license to carry and they retrieved the revolver from the car, according to court documents.
“I could smell a pretty strong odor of an alcoholic beverage emanating from his mouth as he talked,” wrote Gough in his police report where Wiesner reportedly responded that he had drank one beer.

These cases are all from within the last month.
