One, possibly two, people shot and injured during Ohio gun show, But don't worry, according to the local sheriff the organization is "top notch."
Courtesy of the Wilmington News Journal:
An accidental shooting injured at least one person Saturday at the Ohio Gun Collectors Association Show at the Roberts Centre in Wilmington.
Col. Brian Prickett of the Clinton County Sheriff’s Office said one man was injured when there was an accidental discharge of a gun, and another person may have also been struck. He believed that any injuries were not life-threatening ones.
He also stated that the organization running the gun show is a “top-notch” one that is very safety conscious, and that normally the only loaded guns at the show “are ours” (sheriff’s deputies). He said that, to his knowledge, the gun show is continuing today.
I like how the sheriff is not exactly sure how many people were hit, but that he is confident that any injuries were not "life-threatening."
Just fills you with confidence doesn't it?
You know perhaps it's just me, but if you cannot even visit a place where they sell instruments of death without somebody getting shot, perhaps its time to think about spending your money on something a little less likely to splatter your brains onto your bedroom wall.
You know, like a new surround sound system or something.
