In guns-everywhere Georgia, packing heat to walk the dog (as one does!) results in a bullet wound to the thigh when one is tripped by their dog (as they’ll do). Drum roll, please:
A man walking his dog along Chalfont Drive accidentally shot himself when the dog crossed in front of him, causing him to fall, according to an Athens-Clarke County police report.
Police talked to the man at Athens Regional Medical Center and learned that he was carrying the handgun in a jacket pocket, and it discharged when he tripped over his dog. The bullet went through the man’s thigh, according to the police report.
