A two-year-old child was struck in the face after a gun concealed inside her mother's purse accidentally fired inside a Jackson, Mississippi hospital, police said.
The woman was standing next to a vending machine at Merit Health Center when she dropped her purse, causing the gun to fire, WJTV reported. A bullet bounced off the vending machine and grazed the child's face.
The injury was non-life-threatening.
Apparently the incident is under police investigation because no guns are allowed in the hospital.
Actually it seems to me that hospitals should be the ONLY place where you are allowed to have a gun in your possession. That way when it goes off and shoots somebody, which seems to happen with increasing frequency, they will be right where they need to be.
Though in some cases I guess the best place to be standing would be the morgue.
Just another day in the NRA's America.
