    CNN is reporting that three people were injured at the gun show in Raleigh, not two as originally reported. All were victims of a shotgun that fired while the owner was removing it from a case.

    An idiot with a loaded shotgun in a case and 2 idiots that can't safely load their weapons?
    All this out of a couple hundred thousand gun at shows around the country?

    Let's look at The Chicago Tribune. Let's see what happened today in a cty where there are no legal guns to speak of.

    Two similar incidents occurred at entirely separate gun shows in the Midwest, one in the Cleveland suburb of Medina, Ohio and the other at the state fairgrounds in Indianapolis, Indiana. In Ohio, the local ABC affiliate reports that one individual was brought to a hospital by EMS, and in Indiana Channel 8 WISH says that an individual shot himself in the hand while trying to reload his gun in the show parking lot. That brings the tally to 4 victims of gun violence so far at three different gun shows during the country’s first Gun Appreciation Day.

    It's funny for happening on Gun Appreciation Day, in the middle of a national debate on guns. Sorry.

    Funny AND ironic.

    Accidental. Of no more interest or importance than someone who presses a gas pedal when they didn't intend to.
