Congratulations, Unnamed GA Man! You Are Our 2nd Amendment Hero Du Jour!

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.

Ta da!

    Damn! Wish it had gotten him a little higher up. One less gun moron to deal with.

    Does this fall under the heading of “Stand Your Ground” or the revised “Stand Your Ground While Walking The Dog”?

    Lucky dog, and I mean that literally.

    If you feel as though you must take a gun with you when walking the dog, don’t you think it’s time to move? Seriously, it would never occur to me that I needed a gun in order to take a walk in my own neighborhood.
