I figure there must be a whole lot more to this story. There is probably a very good explanation for this happening, and I would really like to hear the whole story. After all, I don't want to wrongly accuse someone of being stupid or ignorant, ya know?
Virginia Man Accidentally Shoots Himself, Wife During Gun Safety Class
ROANOKE, Va. (AP) — A Roanoke man and his wife are recovering after he accidentally shot himself and her during a firearms safety class.
The Bedford County Sheriff’s Office tells media outlets that Michael L. Deel shot himself in the hand with a .45-caliber handgun. The bullet also struck his wife, Michelle, in the leg as she was sitting beside him.
The incident occurred Saturday during a firearms safety class at a residence. The instructor, Thomas Starke, told police that he had left the room and then heard a shot.
The Deels were taken to a local hospital where they were treated for non-life threatening injuries.
Michael Deel says the shooting was a “stupid accident.”
See, folks...this is the main reason there are Firearms Safety Classes! Some of us need the class more than others!
Coffee out on the patio this beautiful morning! Fresh tomatoes right off the vine over there, but save me one...OK?
