Gun goes off inside bar after falling on floor

Saturday night a fight broke out at a bar in Lorain, Ohio. As two men fought on the dance floor one man pulled a gun and pointed it at the other man's face. The bar's bouncer stepped in to break things up. Soon the police arrived. As the bouncer and the police were struggling to restrain the man the gun, which the man had placed back in his pants, fell to the floor and discharged. Fortunately, no one was hit by the bullet.
The man escaped but police found a small .32-caliber handgun in the doorway of the bar and bullet fragments in the same area.
Note - four states, Tennessee, Arizona, Georgia and Virginia, recently enacted laws explicitly allowing loaded guns in bars. Eighteen other states allow weapons in restaurants that serve alcohol.
Ohh shoot.
