Congratulations, Jason Paul Bryant! You Are Our 2nd Amendment Hero Du Jour

One of our safest, most responsible gun owners ever exercised his Constitutional right to conceal-carry a gun into a Texas convenience store because Freedom and also Self-Protection and Stand My Ground, whereupon he hitched up his shorts and promptly shot himself in the leg:

“He walked maybe six feet in the door when he pulled his shorts up, something caught the trigger and the gun discharged into his leg,” Vanover said. “People immediately rushed over to help.”

By the time Officer Shelbye Alemeida arrived at the scene a women in the store had secured a tourniquet made of a belt around the shot leg and was applying pressure to the wound.

Chief Vanover said the accident could have most likely been prevented if proper gun safety had been observed.

“If you’re going to carry a gun it needs to be in a safe holster,” Vanover said. “It’s dangerous to stick a gun in your pants. No one was hurt besides him.”

No charges were filed against Bryant for the negligent discharge, and no word on his condition as of Monday morning.

No, filing charges would be wrong. Taking away his concealed-carry permit would be wrong. Even though Chief Vanover said the accident was preventable, Bryant was not practicing proper gun safety, and was in fact carrying his gun in a dangerous manner, no charges were filed.

Because Texas.

  1. In the twentieth century and before, Texas was once one of the great lights of the American West. They still have many great universities, a progressive energy policy, lots of democrats, radio stations, cities and really, really nice people, not to mention private drinking clubs. (Shh!!, I asked you not to mention the private drinking clubs!!!) There was nothing really wrong with Texas when it belonged to Mexico.

    In the old days, a lot of normal people owned guns in Texas.

    Here is my idea of proper gun safety: Leave your gun at home unless you are planning a murder.

  2. Another shooting that doesn’t count, so the gunzloonz can say that there aren’t that many shootings.

    On another venue, some moron is pushing the “OC/CC gunzownerz are more LAW ABIDIN’ than other people” meme and using a TX study from 1999. A TX study, iow, deliberately skewed data.

    SB, you’re going to have a hard time keeping up with the gun lunacy this week.

  4. I know this guy. He voted for Obama, twice.

    • Wow and here Obama was supposed to take away his guns. Amazing! Also, liberals are gun-grabbers, etc. etc. (insert your favorite gun-loon talking point about liberals here).

    • I think we have a troll here, Southern Beale. It’s just a gut thing; well, the gut thing and Il Duce/Obamandingo juxtaposition, above.

      Yep, troll.
