SILVER CITY, N.M. - Authorities say an employee at a New Mexico gun shop was unloading a handgun when he accidentally shot a customer in the back.

The Las Cruses Sun-News reports the 65-year-old customer was airlifted from Silver City to a Texas hospital, where was listed in stable condition Tuesday afternoon.

Silver City Police Chief Ed Reynolds says an employee at Copper County Sporting Arms was unloading a .45 calibre handgun when the weapon went off, shooting the man in the back.

Emergency responders closed off the street in front of the shop, so a medical helicopter could pick up the customer. It flew him to an El Paso, Texas, hospital for treatment.

5. Idiot.

1. Every gun is loaded.

2. Never point a firearm--intentionally, casually, whatever--at anything you do not want to kill or destroy.

If this is a criminal offense (and what isn't, these days), I hope they make an example out of this asshole.

9. What are the odds that this was a Glock?

 

Some think that the design causes them to be inherently dangerous.
