Just another gun keeping us all safe.

Courtesy of WISH-TV:

Fishers police are investigating after a child found a gun and fired a shot inside Ikea.

It happened around 2 p.m. Monday at the Ikea located at 11400 Ikea Way in Fishers, a north side Indianapolis suburb.

An Ikea customer sat down on a couch, where his firearm fell out of his pants and got lodged in the piece of furniture. He got up from the couch and continued to walk around the store without realizing his gun was gone, according to Sgt. Tom Weger with Fisher Police Department.

Kids sat down on the same couch, found the gun and one of them pulled the trigger, firing a shot but not injuring anyone, Weger said.

Quite a country where you cannot even go shopping for overpriced Scandinavian furniture without having to dive for cover. 

At least nobody was hurt this time, though I think I did read that an IKEA dresser may lose one of its drawers. 

More guns, mean more bullets, and more people (or furniture) shot.

    How can someone not realize that his gun fell out of his pocket? I would think that it would be a rather noticeable item. Perhaps it was left behind deliberately – just to see what would happen. So much for allowing people to walk around wearing their guns. If someone had been hurt, would the careless gun-toting adult have been charged with a crime?

    PS. IKEA is not an “overpriced” Scandinavian furniture store. Their furniture and household goods are inexpensive. On my first trip to an IKEA store many years ago, I bought a cheap small plastic cutting board that I just “retired” from household service. Trump, so far, has not levied tariffs on Scandinavian furniture. I guess he’s not aware of it because it’s not covered in fake gold.

    WOW, how many terrorists shop at IKEA that you need to take your gun. What a bunch of wimps.

    They need to pass a law to fine these morons that “lose” their guns in public places or leave them laying around. The money could go in a fund to help pay for victims injuries, we could call it the “I was shot by another 2nd amendment idiot fund”

    “Commercial satellite imagery from June 21 indicates that improvements to the infrastructure at North Korea’s Yongbyon Nuclear Scientific Research Center are continuing at a rapid pace.”

    “rump went as far as to claim that he has denuclearized N. Korea, and as recently as a few days ago at a rally in South Carolina he was bragging about how he solved the problem. The reality is that Trump didn’t do anything, but give the regime the legitimacy that they craved. Kim Jong-un made his usual vague and empty promises, and Trump bought it all because he was more interested in the publicity stunt than the actual policy. North Korea still hasn’t issued the order to halt their nuclear program.

    Trump got played”

      So much for Trump’s “brilliant” negotiating skills, or not!

    This why we should mandate liability insurance for gun owners. There are enough instances or personal and property damage from accidental gun discharges that “responsible” gun owners should be willing to carry a mandatory minimum amount of insurance.Why should my property or health insurance rates go up to cover the damage done by a gun owner’s misfired weapon.
    We let the “free” market determine the rates to charge and to issue the documentation required to prove that a weapon is properly insured. If a gun owner can not provide proof of insurance his weapon should be confiscated under civil law and the owner should be required to sue in civil court for its return.
    If we convince the insurance companies that there are billions of dollars to be made from premiums we can use their lobbying power against the NRA lobbyists.
