“An Armed Society Is a Polite Society” 0
As Bob Cesca points out, this was the NRA’s fabled good guy with a gun.
The initial investigation revealed that the gun’s owner had completed shooting, and was preparing to put his 12-gauge shotgun away while he was inside the clubhouse. While doing this, the man believed he was putting a “snap cap” into the gun to protect the firing pin while the gun is stored. But he had accidentally placed a live shotgun shell into the gun instead of the snap cap, deputies said.
The man then pointed the gun at the floor and pulled the trigger. Shot from the live round struck the floor, then bounced up and struck several people, according to reports.
So we are back to the subject of gun nut intelligence tests . . . .
