WHMI-FM reports the 32-year-old man from the Livingston County community of Green Oak Township was shot in the buttocks Thursday evening at the Home Depot in Brighton. Police say it appears he was reaching for his wallet when he inadvertently grabbed the pistol and a shot fired.
The man was treated for minor injuries at a nearby hospital.
Police say the man had a license to carry the concealed weapon and no charges will be filed.
Of course charges won’t be filed. Apparently having a carry permit means you have a license to discharge your weapon by accident, putting the rest of us at risk. I mean, as we all know, licensed carry holders are the most responsible ever and prosecuting them for being irresponsible would mean that were no longer true. Can’t have that, now!
I read that story right after reading this one, out of North Carolina:
Officers were called to the Palenque Mexican Restaurant, located at 621-F N. Main St., in reference to a shot being fired shortly after 1 p.m.
Upon review of surveillance video in the restaurant it was discovered that an unknown white male was at the register attempting to pay his bill when he accidentally dropped a handgun.
Upon striking the ground, the gun discharged a round that struck the counter and a wall before going into the ceiling.
Remind me again why we want you loonz carrying guns everywhere?
