Well-regulated American goes to grocery store, shoots customer for Freedom:
HAZEL GREEN, AL (WAFF) – Two men were transported to the hospital after a shooting at Griner’s Supermarket in Hazel Green.
The owner of Griner’s Supermarket said a shopper’s gun fell to the floor and discharged. When it went off, the shopper and another man were hit.
The Madison County Sheriff’s Department say both men were transported to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
This is exactly the kind of thing I’ve been talking about. When more people walk around with guns, more gun accidents happen. That’s just logic. And yes, we are seeing more and more cases of innocent people being shot by gun idiots. Last week a woman dropped a gun at a Beaumont, Texas medical clinic and shot another patient in the thigh. In Georgia, an 8-year-old child was killed. And of course we have our Kansas friend, protecting America by shooting himself in the leg at a movie. That’s just three incidents, last week, off the top of my head. I’m sure there were others.
This is insane, America.
If you have a CCW permit, you should be required to carry liability insurance. Furthermore, these cases of gun negligence need to be prosecuted. There are no accidents. Walking around with a loaded gun with a bullet chambered is negligence. If you don’t have a round in the chamber, then when Mr. or Ms. Butterfingers drops their security blanket, it won’t fire. If you’re too chickenshit to go to the grocery store without your gun, then at least show you’re responsible by not having a round in the chamber. Again: that’s common sense. And if you don’t follow basic safety procedures, you are too irresponsible to be walking around armed. You clearly don’t know what the fuck you’re doing.
It is long past time for these 2nd Amendment Heroes to be held accountable for their actions.
Speaking of our Kansas 2nd Amendment Hero, this story has crossed my radar:
Salina attorney and former Saline County commissioner John Reynolds, a long-time concealed carry advocate, said it’s best to keep the weapon holstered and not touch it unnecessarily. He said even people who practice safety still have accidents. He said he shot a hole in the ceiling of his office three or four years ago, and he had a gun malfunction and shoot the floor.
“Sooner or later everybody has one,” he said. “If you handle something the same way over and over, sooner or later you just screw up.”
Are we safer yet? If even CCW advocates admit gun accidents are inevitable, then all the more reason why you should be required to carry liability insurance.
