Unintentional Shooting at Gun Show

A Colorado man who was "just looking at a gun" at the Tanner Gun Show in Denver was shot in the upper torso when the gun unintentionally discharged. According to witnesses "there was blood all over the floor." The victim is still in the hospital.
This is not the first time the Tanner Gun Show has come under fire. In 2008, a 64-year-old man unintentionally shot himself in the stomach with a handgun in the show's parking lot.
In 1999 three guns used by Dylan Klebold and Eric Harris in the Columbine High School shooting were bought from the Tanner Gun Show. The guns, two shotguns and a TEC-DC9, were purchased from three different private sellers at the show. Because they were private sales no background check was run on Klebold and Harris' friend, Robyn Anderson, who bought the guns for the underage boys.
Ohh shoot.
