Man Negligently Shoots Self In Leg Outside Gun Show

FAYETTEVILLE, NORTH CAROLINA — A man visiting a gun show was in his car trying to clear his firearm, and wound up with a bullet in his leg.

The man, 55-year-old Anthony McKee,  drove to the front door of the Crown Expo Center and received help from off-duty deputies who were working at the event.

What McKee experienced was a negligent discharge.

A negligent discharge is something that occurs when the person handling the firearm ceases to use their brain, even if for a split second. If you’ve been following our site for a while, you know that we regularly put gun owners on blast for incidents like these.

Why? Because they’re 100% avoidable.

We wish McKee a speedy recovery, and hope that he pays better attention if he is to ever handle a firearm again.
