Gun Un-control

Chalk one up for the second amendment.  In Florida, an elderly man and his wife ended up as the innocent victims of an un-crime.  It happened while Arnold and Patricia Morris were holding a "robbery drill" at their home in Melbourne.  According to the AP,  the couple was practicing how to respond to an intruder- when Pat got shot.  After smoking his bride with a shell from a 380 caliber pistol Arnold called 911.  Pat was airlifted to a hospital and is expected to survive.  Not surprisingly, police say the Morris' had little experience with guns.  Investigators are calling the incident "clearly accidental". 
It appears the bad guys aren't the only ones who appear to be armed and dangerous-

Over the years I've written a lot of stories about misfired weapons.  Usually it's a clumsy robber who shoots himself in the leg.  Although I do recall a cop who shot himself while teaching a gun safety class.  Pat Morris is probably the first I've heard of to be shot while actually pretending to be a crime victim.  Just goes to prove you don't need to be a professional to get the job done.
