NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Police said a man was cleaning his gun when it discharged, and a shot was fired into a neighboring apartment.
Police were called to the apartment complex on Arbor Knoll Boulevard around 1:30 a.m. Friday. They said a man was cleaning his handgun when it went off, and a bullet flew into the apartment next door.
Fortunately, no one was hurt.
Investigators said the gun owner won't face charges because he has a carry permit. His identity was not released.
Sorry, what? He had a carry permit so he's innocent of negligent dumbassery? Southern Beale is outraged:
[I]f you’re a CCW holder and you’re such a dumbass you don’t know to make sure all the bullets are removed before cleaning your gun? Yeah, you’ve lost the right to call yourself a responsible gun owner. And you should not only have your CCW permit yanked but you should be charged with negligence. There could have been a kid on the other side of that wall.
