If it’s one thing we can’t stand in Texas, it’s somebody else’s crazies getting all the attention. That’s the only excuse I can come up with for this story. It seems that 23-year-old Todd Canady was in a Wal-Mart checkout line, secretly fondling his gun inside his pants, when it went off prematurely.
“The bullet struck Canady in the buttock, then ricochet on the floor and broke into pieces,” KDFW reported. Two children and a woman were also wounded when they were struck by bullet fragments.
Other reports said that concrete fragments from the floor are what hit bystanders. Anyway, they’re all okay. Even though Todd has a concealed gun permit, he ran off. Police said Canady was quickly caught and arrested.
I wonder if Todd ran off because he was embarrassed about his “early firing” problem? Maybe he just needs a bigger gun…
