    Starbucks Worker Hurts Himself In Store When Gun Discharges
    http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2009/03/03/AR2009030304271.html
    An employee of a Starbucks coffee shop was wounded in the store yesterday when a gun he was carrying went off, D.C. police said. It was the third time in two days in which police said they found a gun in a busy commercial or residential area.

    The employee was hit in the right leg when the handgun discharged accidentally, police said. He was taken to a hospital for treatment of an injury that police said was not life-threatening.

    He was charged with carrying a pistol without a license, police said.

    The incident occurred at 5 p.m. at 16th and U streets NW, both major thoroughfares.

    On Monday, police said, officers found a handgun and several rounds of ammunition during an investigation about two blocks away in the 1400 block of U Street. At least two people were charged with carrying a pistol without a license, they said.

    About an hour before that, police said, officers found a handgun and several rounds of ammunition during a traffic stop in the 700 block of Eighth Street NW. Police said they charged someone with carrying a pistol without a license.

    Sounds like a pretty bad day, shot in the leg, arrested, and I'm sure Starbucks will be terminating his employment :mamoru:

    My question is if you find one handgun and some ammo, how can you charge two people with carrying it?

    This clearly justifies reversing the Heller decision...

    Will the fact that he was carrying the gun illegally stop the anti-gunners from drawing attention to this incident as a reason why concealed carry by normal citizens is dangerous and should be banned everywhere?? You seem to be under the assumption that common sense factors into their equation.

    the cause for virginians to finally be able to defend themselves whilst in the district

    this just looks bad for gun owners in general as politicians will twist this into requiring more training or another outright ban because we can't be responsible enough
