Since this happened in Kentucky it won’t make the Tennessee gun report. But I couldn’t let the news pass without letting my readers hear about it.
One of the most responsible gun owners EVER, a concealed-carry permit holder, accidentally shot himself in the leg while using a bathroom at Fazoli’s restaurant.
Police Sgt. David Neary told The News-Enterprise (http://bit.ly/19bV94y ) that the man left his pistol on the toilet paper dispenser while using the restroom on Sunday at the Fazoli’s restaurant. Neary says the pistol slipped off the dispenser and shot the man in the leg.
Neary says evidence, including the bullet trajectory, supported the man’s description of events.
He says the man was taken to an area hospital with a non-life threatening injury.
Police say the man had a concealed carry permit.
One of the problems with people carrying guns everywhere is what to do with them in the bathroom. We have a lot of problems with people shooting themselves in bathrooms or leaving their guns behind in the bathroom (here, here, here, here and, one of my favorites, here.) I could go on but I won’t. Do a Bing search for “gun, restaurant, bathroom” and see what pops up.
Seems to me if you haven’t figured out how to answer the call of nature while safely carrying your gun, then maybe you shouldn’t be carrying it in the first place.
