Indiana Concealed Carry Permit Holder Gets Arrested in WalMart

Opposing Views reports

Kenneth Pirtle was charged with criminal recklessness with a firearm after his handgun accidentally fired inside a Walmart in Jasper, Ind., on Sunday morning.

Pirtle, 65, was in a check-out line when he reached into his pocket and accidentally discharged his .40 caliber handgun.
The bullet shot through Pirtle's pants leg, hit the floor and then ricocheted into a wall, according to police.
Pirtle suffered minor injuries to his leg, but he refused treatment for reasons unknown.
Fortunately, there were no other injuries.
Police believe that other objects in Pirtle’s pocket might have helped cause the accidental shooting.
The incident is still being investigated.
Now, what's so hard about that?  The dangerous gun owner was arrested and the investigation continues.

  1. Just dumb luck no one else was hurt.
    Why should other people have to rely on dumb luck, whether they get killed, or not just shopping, because of gun loon idiots who cannot control their deadly weapon?
