A vendor at a gun show demonstrated responsible firearm ownership at a Pennsylvania gun show on Saturday when he managed to Second Amendment a customer while showing her a product.
Victim Krista Gearhart says that while Geoffrey Hawk, owner of ironically named “In Case of Emergency,” was demonstrating a holster at the Eagle Arms Gun Show at the Bloomsburg Fairgrounds he accidentally shot her in the leg–because everyone knows it’s a great idea to carry a weapon with the safety off.
Gearhart was taken to Geisinger Medical Center in Danville, where she was treated and released.
The shooting has been ruled an accident, and no charges will be filed.
Recently, because of “responsible gun owners” we have seen God exercise his will and cause a 5-year-old boy to shoot his twelve-year-old sister with a gun his parents bought him and an artillery shell smash into the side of a house three miles from where it was fired (Which, coincidentally, was the Full Auto Shoot and Trade Show in Oklahoma). Those, too, were “accidents.”
Unfortunately, the vague wording of the Second Amendment allows people who should not be allowed to sharpen a pencil to operate hot lead dispensers. We live in a cruel, crazy world.
