Gun Falls, Kills Thrift Shop Worker http://www.nbcphiladelphia.com/news/nati...27961.html

Quote:A woman working at a thrift store in Chicago's South Side Washington Heights neighborhood died Friday morning after a gun hidden in dropped-off clothing accidentally went off and shot her in the chest.

Family said 54-year-old Maria Carmen Dominguez was shot and killed around 10 a.m. inside Unique Thrift Store in the 9300 block of South Ashland Avenue.

Dominguez and another co-worker were sorting through clothing in a back room when her co-worker shook a sock from the sorting pile and a gun fell out onto the floor, discharging, police said.

"It's tragic," Dominguez's husband, Victor Campos, said. "We don't know what we are going to do."

Me neither. How many crappy Saturday night specials ( that will go off when dropped ) are still in circulation. And how many times would you have to randomly drop it to get a dead on center of mass shot.

Something is rotten in the state of Denmark.
Ammunition, it's the new lead bullion. Buy it cheap and stack it deep.

Family members have identified the woman as 54-year-old Carmen Dominguez.

Dominguez and another employee at the Unique Thrift Store in the 9300 block of South Ashland were sifting through donated clothing about 10 a.m. when the .22 caliber handgun went off, police said. The witness told police he found a sock with something inside, and emptied it into his hand.

Police said there was a .22 caliber handgun inside, which accidentally discharged while in his hand.

The U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration has been notified of the shooting and is investigating.

OSHA is investigating a shooting?

Great, now OSHA will have its own swat team! Let's see how many anti-gun government agencies Obama can create.

Weird but I believe it. Sometimes the universe just decides that you are going to die.

I wanna guess he absently pulled the trigger, assuming it was a toy or unloaded.
