The sheriff's office report said a casing flew from the woman's gun and landed inside her blouse, causing her to flinch. She bent over to get the casing out of her blouse when the gun accidentally fired. The bullet hit the man in his right thigh, passing through his leg.
As the gun industry wants to remind Americans, injury statistics show you're more likely to get hurt cheer-leading or playing softball than using guns for sport in the safe, controlled confines of places like a gun range.
And as we all know, softball and cheer-leading injuries typically involve being shot through the leg.
(The tip comes from my wonderful dad, who never made me play softball, cheer-lead, or visit the gun range.)
