SILVERDALE, Wash. (AP) — A gun went off inside a Kitsap County store after a man dropped it, but no one was injured.Hey, accidents happen, right?
The Kitsap Sun reports that a 58-year-old Poulsbo man told deputies he had removed the .38-caliber, two-shot Derringer pistol from a holster on his belt before he entered the Cost Plus World Market in Silverdale on Saturday afternoon.
He put the gun in a coat pocket, but when he was in the middle of the store, he bent over — and the pistol fell out and discharged.
Sheriff's spokesman Scott Wilson says there were about 35 customers and workers inside, and staff used the public address system to tell everyone to evacuate.
Only in an NRA World they can have much, much more dire consequences.
It's just the price we all have to pay for our well-regulated militia.
