An Ontario County man accidentally shot himself Saturday night, while attempting to store his gun in a safe.It's a shame that a guy who's responsible enough to own a gun safe is also clumsy enough to drop the gun. Perhaps he believed the pro-gun claim that guns don't discharge when dropped and wasn't as careful as he should have been.
Jason C. Bliven, 38, of Farmington was placing his loaded handgun back into a gun safe at his residence, when the gun fell to the floor and fired about 10:45 p.m. Saturday, according to Ontario County sheriff’s deputies.
One round struck Bliven in his chest, deputies said. The bullet exited his right shoulder.
Deputies said Bliven has a valid New York State pistol permit. The handgun involved in the accidental shooting was legally registered, deputies said.
When he gets out of the hospital he should lose the contents of that gun safe as well as his New york State pistol permit.
