Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Tuesday, January 21, 2014

Connersville, Ind., police chief David Counceller accidentally shot himself at a local gun shop while off duty Saturday afternoon. Counceller's 40-caliber Glock handgun discharged when he was putting his Glock into its holster after he removed it to compare it to a newer Glock model. "It got tangled in my clothing," he said. "I need to pay more attention."

Fifteen years ago, Counceller accidentally shot himself in his hand. "I was working third shift as a captain. I was unloading (the gun) to take it to the gunsmith and I didn't drop the barrel to see if there was (a bullet) in the chamber," he said. "The shot hit my hand. That one really hurt."

Could have happened just as easily with a knife.

He's lucky he didn't keep his Glock in his front pocket...it would've made an excellent story at parties to explain why he's walking around half-cocked.

No need to chamber a round with a Glock.. I'm surprised he hasn't learned that.

As long as he doesn't shoot himself in the ass first.

Just another trained, concientous gun owner being senselessly ridiculed by the LSM.

Seems like he should probably keep his bullet in his pocket, like Barney.
