Congratulations, Unidentified PA Man! You’re Our 2nd Amendment Hero Du Jour

[UPDATE]:

One of our most responsible citizens evah is a repeat offender:

ALTOONA, Pa. – The gun owner involved in an accidental shooting at a cathedral in Altoona is the same man who was expelled from Mount Aloysius College last week for bringing a gun inside a classroom.

[…]

That man reached out to 6 News and said he has a permit to carry and said the incident at the cathedral was an accident. He also confirmed he was the Mount Aloysius student who was expelled for bringing a gun into a classroom.

———————————————————————

A man inexplicably decided he needed a loaded gun on his hip at Easter church services over the weekend. And you’ll never guess what happened:

Police say a man had a gun in his pocket and it discharged when he stood up. The bullet grazed the man’s hand.

An Altoona newspaper reported the trigger caught on the man’s pants and the gun’s safety was not on.

“I noticed the gun was handed to another gentleman. He immediately concealed it in a white program, so I took pictures of the gun inside this program,” Wagler said.

The man was taken to the hospital. Police haven’t released his name.

It’s unclear why he brought a gun into church. At this point, no charges have been filed.

Score another point for our safest, most responsible, law abiding, etc. etc. etc.

    And if this had happened while a baby was being baptized, and it shot the child? Oh, right. “Divine intervention,” say the NRA shills.
