Lack of Gun Control

I am taking it easy on the blogging during this last week of the year, but I wanted to share this with you from this morning's Detroit News:

Brighton — A Green Oak Township man shot himself in the buttocks at Home Depot on Thursday, when he reached for his wallet and grabbed his pistol instead, police said. The 32-year-old had a license to carry the concealed weapon and was treated for minor injuries at a hospital. No charges are expected.

How's that for lack of personal gun control?  I'm sorry (not really), but I got a chuckle out of that.  Unfortunately, after reading the front page hold-up statistics for the City of Detroit, I can understand someone carrying a gun, though Green Oak is several miles and another county away from the city.

Still, it should make for some interesting conversation.  'So, why are you sitting on only one side of your arse?'

  1. Well of course in Canada people aren't allowed to carry guns at all, nor in the UK. It is so easy to buy guns in the States. We did when we lived there and later discovered we shouldn't have been allowed to. Only bought a gun for snakes by the way.
