This week’s Second Amendment hero is Christopher William Strube of Centerville, Iowa, a concealed-carry permit holder who accidentally discharged his .45 while in Walmart, kept shopping, paid for his items, and left, as if nothing had happened. Take it away, Chris:
Strube was shopping Sunday afternoon with his .45-caliber gun in his pocket, when a bottle he was carrying bumped into the gun and caused it to fire one round, police said. Strube told police that after the gun went off, he paid for his items and left the store.
Employees and customers said they heard a gunshot and smelled gun powder. Police later found a .45-caliber bullet inside a can of beans.
No one was injured, and Strube does have a valid concealed weapon permit, police said.
Is that what they teach you in concealed-carry class? When you accidentally fire your gun in a store you skedaddle without checking to make sure no one was injured? Guess he didn’t want to pay for the cans of beans he destroyed.
He’s lucky he didn’t hit a person. Remind me again why we don’t need these folks carrying extra liability insurance?
By the way, I’m not sure what the socio-demographic implications of this are, but there are an inordinate number of shootings, accidental and otherwise, in Walmart stores and parking lots. Yet another reason to stay away.
