Tennessee Gun Report

Here’s a round-up of gun loonery from across the state. Sorry, been too busy to monitor the local papers regularly, this is just what’s crossed my radar.

• January 14, 2015:

Man reaching for a tissue in his back pocket accidentally shoots himself in the leg. It happened at the Wal-mart in Athens.

• January 12, 2015:

Loaded gun found in a passenger’s carry-on at the Nashville airport. Second one this year, which is all of 2-weeks old.

• January 6, 2015:

So very sad: A 13-year-old Lebanon girl was asleep in her bed when bullets were fired into her home. One hit the sleeping C`Asia Watkins and killed her.

Such a tragic story. I guess it’s small comfort to her parents to know she died without knowing the fear that so many other gun victims have.

• January 5, 2015:

A Memphis International Airport passenger tried to board a plane with a loaded 9mm Beretta in their carry-on bag.

• January 2, 2015:

A Germantown man was hit in the head by a stray bullet at a New Year’s Eve party.
