Well, it could have happened anywhere, I guess. But South Carolina seems like the appropriate place for an off-duty deputy conducting a concealed weapons class to accidentally shoot one of his students, a woman and the wife of another deputy, at that. The classes are being conducted because the sheriff has encouraged women to pack a gun after a recent rape. “Our form of justice is not making it,” he said at the time. “Carry a concealed weapon. That’ll fix it.”
It almost fixed this lady. Don't worry she's going to be okay, bullet went through her arm and into her side, but it's not fatal. She was having trouble with the grip on the weapon apparently and he, gallant that he is, went over to help. And uh oh!!! The damned thing went off. He hadn't thought to check to see if the gun was loaded.
His boss said "it was just a mistake." Ya think? (Source)
