Gun Appreciation Day across the country was marked by various gun shot wounds. At the Dixie Gun and Knife Show in Raleigh, North Carolina, the owner of a 12-gauge shotgun was asked to remove his gun from its case at a security check point and accidentally discharged the weapon — wounding three people.
I am a bit curious about what a security check point is looking for at a gun show when people are allowed to bring in guns.
At another gun show in Medina, Ohio, a gun dealer was attempting to unload a 9 mm semi-automatic Taurus pistol that he had purchased when it went off and hit his 62-year-old partner in the arm and groin.
Then in Indianapolis at the Indy 1500 Gun and Knife Show gun show, a man shot himself in the hand. Emory L. Cozee, 54, was reportedly walking back to his car while loading his .45 caliber semi-automatic when he accidentally shot himself in the hand. Not the brightest move I suspect.
At this rate, the gun control advocates may prevail by simple attrition.
