(CNN) -- At least four people -- three in North Carolina and one in Indiana -- were injured after weapons went off at gun shows Saturday, officials said, at a time when there's been renewed discussion about private gun sales at such shows.

Dixie Gun and Knife Show attendees bolted, with at least one woman wiping out in the frenetic scene, after gunfire rang out around 1 p.m., as seen on video captured by CNN affiliate WRAL.

Police later explained that a a 36-year-old man from Wilmington, North Carolina, was unfastening the case of his 12-gauge shotgun on a table near the show entrance when it accidentally discharged. The man planned to sell the shotgun at the show.

The bird shot ended up injuring three people. One was a sheriff's deputy, who suffered a slight injury to his hand and was treated and released at a local hospital before returning immediately to work, said Joel Keith, chief of police of the North Carolina State Fair.

1. what? attendees bolted?

attendees bolted, with at least one woman wiping out in the frenetic scene, after gunfire rang out around 1 p.m., as seen on video captured by CNN affiliate WRAL.


lol but but...I thought they were all so macho, so manly, so brave, and would fight to the death and "If only someone had a gun" to shoot back and all that stuff.

One shot and they all ran? Gonna need more porta potties.

Maybe this is why they do have so many porta pots at the very lightly attended bagger meetings. You know, a place to go clean your pants in case of a negligent discharge or something.



Brave, brave baggers.

2. LOL

I was thinking the same thing. All of those heroic gun owners should have run to the scene of the commotion ready to restore law and order.

4. It baffles me too. lol

I wonder if they know how much we are laughing at them? They are doing a very good job convincing Americans to regulate their guns, don't cha think?

They are doing a much better job stating our position than we could do alone.
