licensed concealed handgun owner from Waco, Texas hurt more than his pride on Monday when his weapon accidentally discharged while he was reaching for his wallet at a Dallas Walmart store. Police said that Todd Canady, 23, was in the checkout line when he fired the pistol he was carrying inside his pants.
“The bullet struck Canady in the buttock, then ricochet on the floor and broke into pieces,” KDFW reported (http://www.myfoxdfw.com/story/19096461/man-misfires-gun-in-walmart-checkout-line). Two children and a woman were also wounded when they were struck by bullet fragments.
Other reports (http://www.kens5.com/news/Man-fired-gun-in-pants-inside-Dallas-Walmart-163525196.html) indicated that the bullet grazed Canady’s leg he when dropped the Springfield .40-caliber semi-automatic pistol. Shards of concrete from the floor were said to have caused the wounds to the woman and children.
Although injured, the suspect allegedly ran from the store (http://www.star-telegram.com/2012/07/24/4121203/man-held-after-gun-discharges.html) when he was confronted by an off-duty officer.
After catching up with Canady, officers determined that he had a valid concealed carry permit, but charged with evading arrest (http://www.khou.com/news/texas-news/Walmart-shopper-fires-gun-in-pants-in-checkout-line-163573226.html). He may also be charged with felony injury to a child (http://dfw.cbslocal.com/2012/07/24/three-wounded-as-gun-discharges-inside-dallas-wal-mart/).
Canady was being held on $1,000 bond.

I wasn't talking about the others. It sucks they were injured and lucky no one was killed.
He deserves shooting himself in the ass. It was an accident and accidents happen no matter how many rules, regulations or bans that are thrown out there.

Not sure what the laws are in some states, but isnt it against the law to keep one in the chamber even when in the car or store?....Back here you can be charged if your caught with one ready to go.

I'm not sure about every state. Here while in the car you can't even have the clip in the gun or loaded. Revolvers I think have to be empty while in a car.
