Civilian 'Guard' Fires Gun While 'Protecting' Recruiting Center

Civilian 'Guard' Fires Gun While 'Protecting' Recruiting Center | Miscellany | Scoop.it

Volunteer civilian "guards" have been kicked off the grounds outside a military recruiting center in Lancaster, Ohio, after one of them accidentally fired his weapon.  No one was injured. "Listen, it was a mistake. No one was injured," 28-year-old Christopher Reed, who is accused of firing the shot, told the Lancaster Eagle-Gazette. "I'm glad no one was hurt. I am willing to take the punishment."  His gun was confiscated pending a court appearance next week.

Russ75's insight:

This didn't take long did it?  Another responsible gun owner exercising his Second Amendment rights.  We all can feel safer with these guys protecting us.
