Gun Show Shootings: At Least 5 Hurt In Accidental Incidents In Ohio, Indiana, North Carolina.

This cannot be good for the NRA or for pro-second amendment people right now. But I do have to ask the question: What is going on with all these shooting? Maybe gun manufactures and private interest groups like the NRA really need to re-examine gun control and more importantly safety. Gun shows in North Caroline, Indiana and Ohio left 5 people injured Saturday coincidentally that same day thousands of gun advocates peacefully gathers at U.S. state capitals to rally against stricter gun laws. At the Dixie Gun and Knife Show in Raleigh, NC, three people were injured when a 12 gauge shotgun discharged while the owner was unzipping the case. The two day gun show shut down, but was scheduled to reopen on Sunday. In Indianapolis, Indiana, a 54 year old man accidentally shot himself while leaving a gun show at the state fairgrounds where loaded personal weapons are not allowed inside the show. In Ohio, a gun dealer in Medina bought a semi-automatic handgun on Saturday and accidentally shot his friend when showing him the gun which had the magazine removed but one round was left in the chamber. The gun rallies held around the country coincide with the President’s federal gun control proposal unveiled last Wednesday in the wake of the Sandy Hook shooting.
