A Virginia man bought a 9mm handgun. Two hours later while he was trying to clear the chamber he unintentionally discharged the gun. The bullet went through his apartment wall and into his neighbor's apartment. A 14-year-old girl lying on her bed heard the gunshot and saw a picture hanging on her wall break. The bullet was later found on her floor.
The bullet went through three walls and hit a fourth. Fortunately, no one was injured.
Virginia does not require any gun safety training when purchasing a firearm.
