Y'all know guns don't just "go off"; either the guy was negligent in handling or maintaining his shotgun.
Still, the media is making a big, hairy deal about this, like gun shows ain't safe or something. I've been going to them shows most o' my life, folks, and I have NEVER seen a negligent discharge. Still ain't :-)
But them folks in Chicago get shot by "gang-bangers" every day. So, let me use a little bit of that math trainin' I got in engineering school and do a comparison (hat tip to ol' SooperMexican for this):
That right there represents a 177 times greater chance of being shot anywhere in Chicago than at a gun show on "Gun Appreciation Day." That is 17,700%, people.
You ain't gonna catch ol' Backwoods disarmed on the streets of Chicago. I ain't never gonna show my face there again.
