If you’re going to carry keep it secure.
Just dumping it in a pocket does not work well.
Gunfire in Walmart as man pulls up pants and weapon falls out of pocket, officials say
MIDLOTHIAN, Va. (AP/WRIC) – Police in Virginia say a small handgun went off inside a Walmart restroom when it fell out of a man’s pocket as he pulled up his pants.
The Richmond Times-Dispatch on Wednesday reported the gun went off after it hit the floor Tuesday at the store in Midlothian, prompting an evacuation and police response.
Chesterfield police Lt. Brad Conner says two other customers in the restroom were not hurt. The round went into a bathroom stall. Conner says gun owner Clifford C. Shook Jr. left the store without notifying anyone of the situation.
Conner says police tracked down Shook after reviewing video surveillance and interviewing a person who had been with him at the store.
