    Kentucky Sheriff’s Deputy Accidentally Shoots His Mother In Church.

    http://www.addictinginfo.org/2015/05...hurch-wedding/

    Wow really??? Really??


    Gun owners don’t get any more responsible than law enforcement officers, right? After all, they are experts, having received training in how to handle weapons — or so logic would tell us.

    Then how is it that a Kentucky sheriff’s deputy managed to accidentally shoot his own mother? In church. At a wedding.

    On the lighter side:
    We've all heard about shotgun weddings, but this happened at reception. W a revolver.
    Bride & groom will have a wedding-day story to top everyone else.

    Seriously:
    Glad that his Mother was already in stable condition 2 days ago, per http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-3069255/Sheriff-s-deputy-dropped-gun-Kentucky-church-wedding-accidentally-shot-MOTHER.html

    Good that Sheriff is taking this seriously - deputy on leave.
    LEO handling firearm improperly is a Big Deal. Being off duty gives him no excuse.

    here's my favorite part .............

    Is there any good news in this story? Well, the victim is going to recover — and at least the shooting didn’t happen on Mother’s Day.

    Getting ready to travel to my nieces wedding next month. I sent this article to my son and asked him nicely to leave his gun at home.

    Wasn't there a (Lady) sheriff , off duty , carrying her concealed gun in church , and stopped a crazed Islamist before he shot too many people

    It was within the past year , and somewhere in the USA

    She was called a hero.
