Man ‘Accidentally’ Shoots Friend At Phoenix Gun Show


At the Arizona State Fairgrounds, a man was ‘accidentally’ shot by his friend with a semi-automatic handgun at a gun show.










Media sources and law enforcement deem unintentional shootings to be ‘accidents.’  So, guns don’t kill people, ‘accidents’ with guns do. It gets terribly confusing when they try to label it as anything but what it is: irresponsible.

KPHO reports:

Arizona Department of Public Safety detectives say that just after 11 a.m., there was an accidental discharge of a semi-automatic handgun.

A gun buyer had apparently been inspecting his recently-purchased handgun, when the weapon accidentally discharged, and the man’s companion was shot.

After the weapon discharged, the bullet struck the male victim in the upper left torso and then exited from his upper right torso.

The victim reportedly suffered a non-life-threatening injury and was transported to a local hospital.

The Crossroads of the West gun show held an event at the fairgrounds.

There is no word yet on whether any criminal charges will be filed and authorities said the investigation is ongoing.

The website for the Crossroads of the West gun show touts support for the National Rifle Association and it states the NRA is in ‘the business of freedom.”

That ‘freedom’ bullet had to pack a punch, huh?

With friends like the shooter, you don’t need enemies.

Be sure to give us some ‘like’ on Facebook.
