A Clay County deputy's gun accidentally discharged Thursday, injuring his child.
said the boy was reaching into the deputy's pants to get a snack while
they were at Wendy's at 2530 Blanding Blvd. when he jostled the gun,
causing it to discharge.
The child was slightly injured by a fragment that ricocheted off the floor and cut his legs and foot, deputies said.
A Wendy's employee also had minor injuries from the fragments but declined medical treatment.
They said it was the deputy's private handgun, not a service weapon.
There was no affect on his work status, according to the Clay County Sheriff's Office.
Of course it will have no affect on his status. What's a little gun irresponsibility between Florida gun nuts and the cops.
What should happen is a lifetime ban on the owning and using of guns for this bumbling idiot of a gun owner. Chances are it's not his first offense and thanks to the nonchalance with which these incidents are met in Florida it won't be his last.
