The most modern 'Murican story EVER!

Amazingly, it happened in my home state, not Texas.
Centerville Police have made an arrest in connection with the gun shot fired inside of the Walmart Supercenter in Centerville Sunday afternoon. Christopher William Strube, 50 of Centerville, was arrested and charged with discharging a weapon within the city limits of Centerville. Police made the arrest at approximately 9 a.m. Monday morning. According to a press release from the Centerville Police Department late Monday morning, Strube said he was carrying a .45-caliber gun in his pants pocket. He stated that a bottle that he was carrying hit the handgun and caused it to fire one round. The press release continues to say that Strube advised that after the gun went off he paid for his items and left the store.
A bottle of what? I think it would be irresponsible not to speculate. Note that AFTER his gun went off, he continued shopping. You don't even do that at an adult bookstore. *rim shot*

how very civilized... personally, it's to the point where a normal person feels terrorized everywhere now. can't speak freely if you might get plugged for an opionion by the guy buyin soda's and a butterfinger in line next to you... or even stand quietly and hope an "accidental discharge" from a gun nut who's all about freeance... what a horrible horrible window on our lives now.

Our "well regulated militia"; again.

Carrying a .45 in his pants pocket? Srsly? They better be some my-tee-big pants.

Gun nuts come up with the most anodyne stories when they get caught, don't they?

That was certainly much more benign than, "I spied a black person 'shopping,' and instinctively--no, lovingly--slipped off the safety and curled my finger deliciously around the trigger."

I did send mr strube a facebook message asking if he would like me to do a tasteful taxidermy mount of the can of beans he shot. I suggested a threatening pose like a charging grizzly- no response yet.
