Wife drops gun in McDonald's, husband shot

Wife drops gun in Bend McDonald's, husband shot

BEND, Ore. A Bend woman accidentally shot her husband when her Derringer fell out of her pocket, hit the floor and fired.

KTVZ reports it happened Thursday at a McDonald's restaurant, and about 15 other customers who were inside at the time were startled by the gunfire.

Lt. Chris Carney says 47-year-old Richard Lee Cooper and 48-year-old Barbara Annette Masters were in the dining area when she leaned forward and the gun hit the floor. The impact caused the .22-caliber gun to fire, hitting Cooper in the abdomen. He was taken to St. Charles-Bend hospital in serious condition.

Masters was cited on assault and reckless endangering charges and released.

she considered herself to be a responsible gun owner.

11. That Derringer was trained and paid to do that by Obama.

It's all part of his communist, fascist, leftest, Islamic plan, to take away our guns and put all the white people in FEMA camps.

I wonder if the insurance is going to pay that bill though. Do they pay out for stuff that is totally avoidable?

38. Ya see? THIS is why the NRA wants EVERYONE to have a gun.

If the husband had had a gun in HIS pocket, then when he was hit, he could have dropped HIS gun on the floor and shot his wife right back.

41. Impossible! Obviously a conspiracy made up by anti-gun commies

to discredit law abiding gun owners. Everybody knows that concealed weapons carriers are totally responsible and we have nothing to fear from them.
