...accidentally shoots self, woman at graduation ceremony

Why do people continue to shoot themselves in the foot! In this case, literally!

Quote
Augusta Police Chief Tyler Brewer told the Wichita Eagle that a 37-year-old man with a concealed carry permit inadvertently caused a small automatic handgun to go off inside his sock during the Augusta High School commencement.

“An individual sitting on the southern portion of the stadium had brought this gun into the stadium,” Brewer said. “It was in his sock. It was uncomfortable for him. He went to adjust his sock, and the weapon went off, striking him in the foot.”

According to the Associated Press, the bullet then traveled 50 feet, hitting a woman in her calf.

What most 21st Century Americans simply do not grasp is that the Constitution and Bill of Rights were not written to to give rights to the citizens of our then-new nation, but was instead written to tightly constrain the federal government.

Never shall I fail my comrades. I will always keep myself mentally alert, physically strong and morally straight, and I will shoulder more than my share of the task whatever it may be.  One hundred percent and then some.

Ah, yes...the old sock-holster ploy.
It never works, and you can't fix stupid.
