Oops! Licensed Gunman Fires Bullet Into Neighbor's Apartment

Don't you feel so much safer knowing there are more than 300,000 little Barney Fifes ready to spring into action with guns ablaze at the first sign of trouble all over this state? From Channel 5:

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.
