WTF?  How does a .45 "just go off" when touched by a bottle?  And how the fark did he get through his shopping trip, stand in line, pay, and go home before someone reported a gunshot?

Carrying guns is a normal part of every day life. So this shouldn't be a big deal much less newsworthy

Help I'm steppin' into this Walmart store
The place is a madhouse, everyone's poor
My pistol's been safe in my pocket so far
Where am I to go, now that it has discharged
Don't mean to cause a scene
When the bullet hits the beans
Don't mean to cause a scene
When the bullet hits the beans

Well, he had two options:

1) Tell someone and get arrested, or
2) Don't tell someone and maybe get away with making a (admittedly huge) mistake.

He chose Option 2, and while he was ultimately arrested it was clearly his best option.

Yeah... Had he been carrying a smaller caliber weapon that made less noise he'd have had a better chance of getting away with it.

Aren't most .45 caliber handguns fairly bulky and heavy? Over the years I've considered what would make for a good concealed-carry weapon, and I usually end up thinking that a .38 or .357 would work best, even with the lesser number of rounds of a revolver.

Sniffers Row: BunkoSquad: Luckily it missed his tiny dick

So either you can vouch at the size of his penis by having actually seen it; or you're assuming that he has a small penis and is compensating because he is lawfully carrying a gun.

What about a woman that was carrying? "Good thing she didn't shoot a hole in her gaping, flappy lipped canyon!"


There's no reason to be scared. No one is going to pull your pants down.

100% guaranteed that he was carrying the gun in a pocket holster, had his hand in his pocket, and fondling it.

Nope I am not talking about the accidental discharge, I am talking about the lack of taking responsibility for your actions.

Wonder what he would have done if he shot more than beer....

If I had to guess it was probably a Glock without a holster. Nothing like a 5.5 pound trigger with no manual safety. Whatever the case may be, the guy was clearly irresponsible and everybody was fortunate that nobody was shot. That said, one way or another it will serve as a teachable moment.

They make a lot of sub compact .45s these days they just have short barrels that make it hard to hit the broad side of a barn.  I carry a 9mm sub for concealed carry.  This dumbass probably had the hammer cocked it takes more than a bump to make modern firearms go off.  A concealed carry holster goes a long way as well.

Like, teaching him that he's no longer allowed to carry concealed, since he's demonstrated that he's not responsible enough to do so?

I actually like the concealed-carry-permit concept. I feel that it's appropriate for people to prove that they can hit a specific target and to have gone through a bit of classroom time covering when it's appropriate to introduce a firearm into a situation and when it isn't, as well as other basic safety and liability concerns, if they wish to carry a secret firearm around others.

I was saddened when my state chose to forgo requiring a permit for concealed carry. My job has me in occasional casual contact with law enforcement, and the two officers that I asked about the change in the law were both annoyed by it. Before it was very likely that one carrying with permit was above board, and one carrying concealed without permit was worthy of further investigation, as the permits were so easy to obtain (sit in a classroom for a few hours and then put a few rounds through a target at 20 paces, kind of easy) that really only those who weren't permitted couldn't pass a Brady-mandated background check and shouldn't have been armed at all. With the change, that distinction has been removed.

This could easily have been avoided if the bean cans had been armed. Or if he had bothered to leave the house with even a hint of common sense.

A coworker told me about one of the other guys in a concealed carry permit renewal class, the guy had trouble hitting a man-sized target at the requisite distance, and got increasingly upset until he finally, barely qualified.

Personally, I don't want someone to be permitted if they can't actually hit what they're aiming at. What's the point in being armed if you're going to miss?

I agree a permit is a start for those that want to carry legally but rules do vary by state.  Here in Colorado we have to sit through a 90 minute class (mine was 90 minutes of a guy saying how wrong he thought it was that we had to sit through a class) then submit to local sheriff and wait for your permit.  No shooting test required here just the BS class.

LAPD hit ratio in a gunfight is around 29% even the trained people miss when it  counts.  I didn't have to qualify but I follow a personal rule to make myself qualify in order to carry.  I agree what is the point of carrying if you can't hit your target anyway.
