According to the WTOC local news, a clerk was shot at Mission Essential in Savannah by accident. According to the story, a customer was trying to clear his loaded gun when it went off and fired through a display case striking the clerk in the hip. the clerk was taken to the hospital and is reportedly in good condition

I still can't believe this stuff happens. Zookeper and I were at the GCO table and this fellow just has to show his gun to us. It was zip tied, but we still didn't like looking down the barrel of it. Zoo said later he felt a little better seeing the zip tie......just a little.....

They just put up a short piece on it: http://www.wtoc.com/global/story.asp?s=13576147

By the story it seems to me if he had just kept it holstered, there wouldn't have been any problems. I know at one time ME said no loaded carry weapons in the store and this changed after a chat with Justin. Now that it's a new owner it may have changed back. Can anyone confirm if they ask customers not to carry in the store?

Great... the only gun range actually in the city of Savannah and some D-bag who couldn't safely clear his own weapon has possibly started the process toward helping get the place shut down. :censored: :banghead:

I hope the clerk is gonna fully recover.

Would an incident like this be grounds for a person to have their GFL/GWL revoked?

Even Nick's Guns has changed their policy to allow carry in their store. I asked one of the sales associates about it and they explained that they had a customer put a round into their leg while unloading in their vehicle.

Even if the gun went off, why on Earth was it pointed in the direction of a human being?

1) Why do you assume that the person had a GWL?

2) I would say no unless the person was charged with something pretty serious that would allow the person's GWL to be revoked.

I asked if an incident 'like this', not this actual incident.

However, I wouldn't be surprised if this idiot did in fact have a GFL/GWL. If he walked into ME, ( let alone any other establishment ) with a loaded weapon and didn't have a GFL/GWL, wouldn't he be breaking the law once he left his vehicle?

Now, it's also entirely possible that this person may not have a GFL/GWL. In that case, this person should've unloaded and cleared his weapon in his vehicle prior to bringing it into the store.

I thought ME didn't allow ANY loaded weapons in the store? NOW more people can see why we gun store employees get wigged out with people HANDLING guns in the store. If you are carrying then leave it in the damn holster!!!!!!!!!!! :evil:
