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

Oh, lookie. Another one of our safest, most responsible citizens EVAH didn’t live up to their NRA-crafted image. Shocked, I tell you:

Police: Man with concealed carry permit accidentally shoots self, woman at graduation ceremony

A high school graduation in Augusta, Kan., was interrupted on Sunday by a “knucklehead situation,” police say.

Augusta Police Chief Tyler Brewer told the Wichita Eagle that a 37-year-old man with a concealed carry permit inadvertently caused a small automatic handgun to go off inside his sock during the Augusta High School commencement.

“An individual sitting on the southern portion of the stadium had brought this gun into the stadium,” Brewer said. “It was in his sock. It was uncomfortable for him. He went to adjust his sock, and the weapon went off, striking him in the foot.”

According to the Associated Press, the bullet then traveled 50 feet, hitting a woman in her calf.

She has been released from the hospital, while the man is still being treated for a non-life-threatening injury.

Weapons are not permitted on school grounds, and Brewer said he plans to ask prosecutors to file charges.

So let’s count the way this man failed humanity: he brought a gun into a gun-free zone. He had it concealed in his sock. And he shot himself and a bystander.

Slow clap, gun idiot!

    Just want to add here that the numerous readers’ comments to your linked news piece are both snarky & insightful, in the best Southern Beale tradition. One such comment steered me to another SB-like site of “gun stupidity” interest, if I may offer the link, here. We’re all in this, together.

  2. A pity he did not have the gun stuck in his underwear. It could have blown off something other than his foot, and he could have won a Darwin Award.

    • Speaking of, can someone tell me how having a “bra holster” is anything close to common sense? A loaded gun right next to your heart? Where is the CPSC when you need them? We can’t have lawn darts but we can walk around carrying a loaded gun strapped to our boobs?

  3. Gods, but I live with idiots…

    The only thing that can stop a bad foot with a gun is a podiatrist with a gun!
