File this one under "Oops" or "We told you so". Fortunately it sounds like the man's wife will be okay.
According to The Kansas City Star, a man with a valid gun permit accidentally shot his wife while at the Longbranch Steakhouse in Lenexa.
Police said the two were sitting across from each other in a booth about 8:15 p.m. Jan. 2 when the man reached into his front pants pocket and accidentally discharged a small pistol, striking his wife in the leg just above the knee. She was treated at a hospital and released.The more people carry guns, the more we will be hearing this kind of story unfortunately.
The man had a valid permit to carry a concealed weapon, said Officer Dan Friesen of the Lenexa Police Department. But Kansas law does not allow people to carry concealed weapons if they are under the influence of alcohol. It is a Class A misdemeanor.
Friesen said the Johnson County district attorney’s office was reviewing the case to decide whether to file a charge. He said the Kansas attorney general’s office will also review the case to determine whether to revoke the man’s concealed-carry permit.
