So many layers of irony in this one, I can't even begin. Via Raw Story:

Earlier this year, St. Joseph Public Safety officers reported that 55-year-old Christina Bond had died on New Years Day from what appeared to be a self-inflicted gunshot wound to her eye.

Although the full autopsy had not been completed, officials released new details on Wednesday.

“She was having trouble adjusting her bra holster, couldn’t get it to fit the way she wanted it to. She was looking down at it and accidentally discharged the weapon,” St. Joseph Public Safety Director Mark Clapp said.

According to an obituary published by Florin Funeral Service, Bond joined the U.S. Navy out of high school, and served two terms as an active Military Police. She was an administrator for the Road to Life Church, and an “active member of the Christian Motorcycle Association.”

The obituary described Bond as being “on FIRE for the LORD.”Last summer, she was elected as a Republican Precinct Delegate for Saint Joseph Charter Precinct 1.Her Facebook page is filled with Bible verses, and information about organizing for the Republican Party. Several recent posts complained about Common Core education standards, and about President Barack Obama. Other posts depicted black protesters in Ferguson as dangerous rioters.

“Here’s the most critical evasive driving tactic to avoid getting swarmed and killed in a riot,” one post was titled.
