Sheriff's Bold Suggestion: Don't Take Loaded Gun To Dentist

So this 72 year old guy in Ohio goes to the dentist and gets gassed-up on Nitrous Oxide.

Then, dammit, his cell phone rings in his pocket. You know, like it always does when you’re high on some damn thing.

Instead, James Short grabbed his pistol, firing it and striking himself in the hand, NBC affiliate WCMH reported. The bullet also grazed Short’s stomach.

Short, who was scheduled on Thursday to receive a filling at New Carlisle Dental Group, northeast of Dayton, had a concealed-carry permit for the gun, according to the station, and the dentist did not ban concealed weapons.

Okay, first of all, if you gotta have a gun at the dentist’s office then just maybe you need to get another dentist.

And then there’s this from the local sheriff’s department —

Sgt. Christina Evans-Fisher of the Clark County Sheriff’s Office offered the incident as a warning: “If you’re going to a doctor’s office where you might be put under some kind of medication that might alter your mental status … you might not want to carry a weapon.”

Please note that the word “might” appears three times in that statement like this is pure conjecture. Warning, my sweet patootie. That wasn’t a warning. That was a laugh your butt off at some crazy old man who can’t tell his damn cell phone from a gun. Thank goodness he didn’t answer it and blow off his ear.
