|Pastor Tom Smith. Now holier than ever.|
A Modesto pastor is recovering after being shot during a gun safety class, CBS Sacramento reports.
Tom Smith, a family pastor who also helps with church security, was shot by his own gun safety instructor.
Modesto Police say they were acting out a scenario when a loaded gun the instructor was holding accidentally went off. They say they gun fired at the end of class after the instructor put a mock gun down and picked up his real loaded gun.
Police say so far it's unclear if the instructor believed he was using the mock gun he had been using to teach the class.
You know I'm certainly no expert on gun safety instruction but it seems to me that the first rule of gun safety class is to NOT shoot any of your students.
But hey, maybe I'm wrong.
Yep, more guns in more hands is certainly keeping us all safe.
