Congratulations, Christina Bond! You Are Our 2nd Amendment Hero Du Jour

I am beyond words:

ST. JOSEPH, MI — A woman who accidentally shot herself in the eye on New Years Day at her Lake Michigan home was adjusting the handgun in her bra holster, police say.

St. Joseph Public Safety detectives are still waiting on the full autopsy report in the death of Christina Bond, 55, but released the new details to the Kalamazoo Gazette on Wednesday.

“She was having trouble adjusting her bra holster, couldn’t get it to fit the way she wanted it to. She was looking down at it and accidentally discharged the weapon,” said St. Joseph Public Safety Director Mark Clapp.

Officers responded to 396 Upton Drive at 5:10 p.m. Jan. 1 to find Bond with a gunshot wound to the eye. She was taken to Lakeland Hospital and then airlifted to Bronson Methodist Hospital where she died the next day.

Can you say “liability lawsuit”? And what fucking moron thought a “bra holster” was a good idea in the first place? (Except maybe this lady.) Hey fellas, how about a jockstrap holster?

    It’s not so much the fool who thought it up it is the fool that thought she needed it and bought it and then was not aware the direction the muzzle was pointing while she was trying to adjust her tits for the best visual and tactical advantage.

    Could have been worse. She might have been nursing.

    A big part of concealed carry fun is how and where the gun is stashed. But when she put a loaded and cocked pistol in this rig she set a booby trap.

    When I first saw this story I thought it was something from The Onion. But, sadly, no, no it’s not. Irony. Karma. Call it what you will but this is a story that just will never get old. Love your blog! Keep up the good work.

  5. Amazing. Just when you think you’ve heard the stupidest thing possible someone comes up with something stupider.

  6. A huge problem with all these people shooting themselves accidentally is that they’re carrying their guns unsafely. Carrying a gun with a bullet ready to fire, especially if it lacks a separate safety, is just asking for a negligent discharge.

    Really? Nobody’s said anything about “pistol packin’ mama” yet?

    I’m a tad disappointed in you lot.

    Darwinian evolution. Definitely one who was swimming in the shallow end of the gene pool, like many of these gun nuts.

  9. Allow for some time to compile statistics and it is very likely that the concealed carry crowd will have caused more injuries and deaths than they have prevented due to criminal attacks.
