Congratulations, Martin Lawrence! You’re Our 2nd Amendment Hero Du Jour

He needed to carry a gun with him at all times to keep himself safe. And it sure worked, except that one time:

[…] Investigators say he was getting out of his car when his gun dropped onto the ground and fired, hitting Lawrence in the leg.

He later died at the hospital.

Deputies believe the bullet traveled up Lawrence’s body and caused several internal injuries. Investigators say nothing indicates Lawrence was reckless in his handling of the weapon.

Stuff happens.
