Congratulations, Unidentified FL Man! You Are Our 2nd Amendment Hero Du Jour

Concealed-carry is so safe, y’all:

MANATEE — A 59-year-old Bradenton man accidentally shot his 58-year-old wife in the head about 8:40 a.m. Sunday in the 3800 block of 100th Street West, according to a Manatee County Sheriff’s Office report.

Deputies responded to Blake Medical Center to interview the principals separately.

Both said they were preparing to play golf when he removed a small five-shot revolver from his pocket, dropped it and it discharged when it hit the floor, according to the report. The round grazed the woman on the side of her head and they drove together to the emergency room.

The victim was alert and talking and was going to be released after receiving treatment for the wound.

At this time, this incident appears accidental, according to the report.

On the golf course, no less. What a dumbass.

    Appears that it happened at home, not at the golf course. Good catch, though.

  2. Perhaps I’m hopelessly old-fashioned. But why were they going to the golf course instead of going to church? No guns required. I mean, it’s not like a football game that we have no control over the time.
