A 20-year-old woman was standing outside of L. H. Williams elementary school in Macon, Georgia Monday night around 9:30 p.m. She told police she heard a popping noise and when she looked down at her hands, she noticed they were bleeding.
According to police an as yet unidentified male dropped a gun which then unintentionally discharged, shooting the woman. The bullet grazed both her arms and she was taken to the local hospital for treatment.
Police are still investigating the incident.
Guns are the only consumer product manufactured in American not regulated by a federal agency for health and safety. Guns that discharge when dropped clearly have a design flaw yet the Consumer Product Safety Commission has no authority to issue a recall on any gun or demand they be redesigned.
