According to the police report, the shooting appeared to have occurred at a couch in the downstairs portion of the residence. SCSO Public Information Officer Leslie Earhart says Flanary was showing his friend a 16-gauge shotgun when it inadvertently fired.You know what they do for there, right? They plea bargain the whole thing down to disorderly conduct and retain the gun rights.
Detectives responded to the home and hospital to speak with witnesses and the victim. Flanary allegedly had a strong odor of alcohol, while a pat down located a small baggy of marijuana in his back pocket.
Flanary was arrested and charged with reckless endangerment, possession of a gun while under the influence, simple possession of marijuana and public intoxication. He was jailed at the Sullivan County Justice Center and released after posting $5,000 bond.
Gun negligence is not taken seriously enough. Even the so-called liberal media keeps saying things like "it inadvertently fired," as if it weren't the negligent gun owner's fault.
