Another disarming gun story

Another story to file in the "guns make us safer" drawer. The News-Observer reports
A gun dealer shot himself in the hand just before a gun show in northern Charlotte Sunday morning.

Police haven’t released the name of the man, but said he was a dealer at the Dixie Gun & Knife Classic, which was held this weekend at the Metrolina Expo on Statesville Road.

“He was taking the gun out to display it and pulled the trigger and it went off,” said Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Capt. William Boger.
I'm sure the unnamed gun dealer is just as competent in running background checks and completing ATF paperwork.

I suppose that it is good that Mr. Carr did not have a stinking firearm.

Concealed carry is bad, or good, depending on one's perspective.
