Plymouth Police say a man is in the hospital after he accidentally shot himself inside a Rainbow Foods Sunday afternoon.He probably went to the Eddie Eagle Program as a kid and then started shooting at a very young age. He may have had military experience and several firearms safety training courses along the way.
The shooting occurred inside the bathroom of the grocery store. The man suffered a non-life threatening injury to his lower leg.
Police are not sure how the gun discharged. There is no indication that this is anything other than an accident.
No one else was injured. Police say the man has a conceal and carry permit.
Still he turned out to be so irresponsible and dangerous with his gun that on this particular day, like many before it, he violated one or more of the 4 Rules of Gun Safety. The difference this time was he put a bullet in his leg.
Would it be too harsh to consider a man like this a danger to himself and others and strip him of his guns and gun rights?
