Concealed gun owner shoots own buttocks and wounds children at Dallas Walmart

10:38 am - 07/25/2012

A 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. Two children and a woman were also wounded when they were struck by bullet fragments.

Other reports 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 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. He may also be charged with felony injury to a child.

Canady was being held on $1,000 bond.

Epic fail.

wtf people rubber bands are not your fucking freinds! grip safeties are there for a reason.

explanation, the springfield XD has several safeties, one of which includes a grip safety that people often wrap rubber bands around so they can always be ready for action. my initial reaction is a reaction to those morons who alter the guns function for tacticoool points.

Y'know, I think about the possibility of this happening every time I see a fictional character shove a gun in their pants.

A little common sense, people.

Correct me if I'm ignorant about that particular area, but do you really need a handgun with you at Walmart?
layweed 25th-Jul-2012 03:10 pm (UTC)
It's Texas, you really need a handgun everywhere you go!

Why not have a holster? Whenever I see tv/movies/read books and a guy puts the gun in front of his pants, I always think he's going to shoot his dick off.

NGL, I always think *exactly* the same.

So. This is the armed civilian who is supposed to rise up and defend us all in the event of an emergency.

lmao i cannot. these people man.

Shame his arse didn't have a gun. Maybe it could have prevented this tragedy.

(Seriously though, how fucking stupid can you get? I'd be laughing my own arse off if it weren't for the fact that this assface's actions hurt two kids and a woman.)

Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't it generally considered a huge no-no of gun ownership to walk around with a loaded gun like this? Most gun owners I've met tell me it's a big deal and not to do it, "Never carry it loaded unless you plan on shooting someone."
layweed 25th-Jul-2012 04:10 pm (UTC)
I think the whole point of concealed carry is to have it loaded and ready at a moment's notice though. But yeah, I agree with you. I don't know why he felt the need to have a round chambered, isn't it enough to have it on you? You have to have a round chambered and probably rigged to avoid the safety? Fucking dumbass.

He probably saw someone do this in the movies, put their gun down their trousers and it didn't go off so hey it must be safe. He probably thinks ET is real and that Total Recall is a documentary.

I hope his injured victims sue.

Obviously there weren't enough armed passersby ready to shoot him before he accidentally shared pieces of bullet and arse with three innocent members of the public. MORE GUNS!
mirhanda 25th-Jul-2012 03:52 pm (UTC)
I hope the injured sue him and win a big judgement.

This reminds me of the time one of my friends, who's a cop, told me about how this gangster actually did shoot his dick off. He survived, but people started calling him 'Tommy No Dick'. Behind his back, I'm sure.

I hope they get this guy for injuring those kids and that lady.

Striking Texas off the list of places I will never, ever visit.
layweed 25th-Jul-2012 04:11 pm (UTC)
Aww. It's really a nice place, dumbass rednecks notwithstanding.
