Yes, do tell me how safe concealed-carry is. I’m all ears:
Franklin County Sheriff’s Office officials say a woman was shot in both legs and her boyfriend shot through his hand after her gun went off in her purse Saturday afternoon.
Lt. Phillip Young said the woman’s Glock went off while the couple sat in a vehicle outside a residence in the 1400 block of Virgil H. Goode Highway in Bassett about 3:30 p.m. The man, who was in the driver’s seat, put a drink can in the woman’s purse before putting his hand on her leg .
“[The bullet] went through his hand, through one of her legs near the knee area and then hit her other knee,” Young said. “Her pocketbook was full of stuff. It’s hard to say what made it go off.”
Both the man and the woman were taken to Carilion Franklin Memorial Hospital. Their names, ages and conditions were not available Saturday evening.
Officials are investigating what caused the gun’s discharge, Young said. No charges were filed Saturday.
“Her pocketbook was full of stuff.” Yeah, that’s kinda how we ladies roll. But it’s not like those purse-holsters are any safer. And thank God she wasn’t packing heat in her bra.
And some idiots in our state legislature want to allow guns everywhere in Tennessee to pander to the NRA before they come to Nashville next month. So awesome. Beam me the fuck outta here.
