Congratulations, Stan Lee! You’re Our 2nd Amendment Hero Du Jour

Another of our safest, most responsible citizens evah injured five people — two of them children — in a public place, when he responsibly reached into his pocket for his wallet:

Lee, who has a concealed weapons permit, was carrying a 9 mm Glock in his pocket in the lobby of the Clearwater Beach Marriott, 1201 Gulf Blvd. around 2:30 p.m., police said.

He reached into his pocket to retrieve his wallet and accidentally fired the weapon, police said. The bullet grazed his leg and then hit the tile floor, shattering and sending shrapnel into the four other victims and causing minor, non-life-threatening leg injuries.

Remind me again why we don’t require liability insurance for concealed-carriers? If you can’t even reach for your wallet without injuring people…?

    Sue the shit out of him in civil court. Send a message that if law enforcement won’t protect us from gun-toting morons, we’ll break the financial backs of those morons.

      Excellent idea. I guess in their minds “freedom” means the right to injure other people with no consequences. This has got to stop.

  2. An equally big question is why this kind of negligent discharge isn’t a criminal matter.

    Generally speaking, isn’t there a law banning the discharge of firearms within a certain distance of a public thorofare and if so, why wouldn’t this apply in most of these ‘accidents’ where some nimrod blows off his nuts reaching for his carkeys or such???

    Or is it that the prosecutors simply refuse to act?

    • Don’t know of such a law and also FREEDOM and CONSTITUTION and SHUT UP, that’s why.

      Seriously, if you’re looking for logic where our gun laws are concerned … you’re looking in the wrong place.
