Happy Gun Appreciation Day. The Dixie Gun and Knife Show in Raleigh, North Carolina was closed today after an accidental gun shooting in the Jim Graham Building injured two people.
Emergency crews responded to the scene shortly after 1 p.m., and two people were loaded into ambulances.
A witness told WRAL that a gun went off after being checked by an official at a safety check-in location, hitting a man in the hand and a woman in the side.
So an “official” at the check in probably made this error but we need to arm our schools. Yesterday, a ‘firearms instructor’ hired as an armed guard left his loaded gun in a school bathroom.
The Dixie Gun and Knife Show is opening tomorrow but they warn patriots that you MAY NOT BRING PERSONAL GUNS TO THE SHOW.
“The Show WILL BE OPEN TOMORROW 1/20/2013 at 10am
NO PERSONAL FIREARMS ARE TO BE BROUGHT INTO THE SHOW.”
Keep your guns and your crazy to yourself, please. Gun sellers are trying to make money off of you and they can’t do that when you do really stupid things.
Freedom is when Republicans ban guns at their convention and now gun shows ban your personal firearms while selling you firearms.
You are encouraged to get mad enough to kill if a black person or a Democrat threatens to require that only sane, non-criminals carry assault weapons, but if a Republican or gun seller restricts your gun rights, well, that’s just them looking after themselves. Naturally, you understand this because the Dixie Show is known for its racist, white supremacy flavored Confederate fever.
Discharge at will so long as you are away from the folks whipping you into a frenzy about your gun rights. Keep your guns on your side of crazy, patriots! No personal guns at the gun shows because they are dangerous. But guns belong in schools.
Update: CNN is reporting now that three people were injured at the Dixie Gun Show, after a man’s gun discharged as he was opening the case for his 12 gauge shotgun. Private guns are banned for the rest of the show (one gun “accident” and they ban them, but we are supposed to not even ask for background checks).
And further north, gun appreciation day is going no better. “(I)n Indianapolis, a man walking out of the Indy 1500 Gun and Knife Show shot himself in the hand as he was loading his .45-caliber semi-automatic firearm…” Then at an Ohio gun show, “the local ABC affiliate reports that one individual was brought to a hospital by EMS.” This news prompted reader Jordan Eckerling to rename Gun Appreciation Day to the more apt “Darwin Appreciation Day”.
