oopsy daisy smaller

Psst! Republicans! Check out this "good guy with a gun" boo-boo. Hint: His negligence potentially endangered lives.

Via the St. Louis Post-Dispatch:

According to a Capitol Police incident report, a Kahr CM9 9mm pistol – later claimed by [Republican] House Speaker Tim Jones’ legislative assistant Dave Evans – was found on top of the toilet paper dispenser in a men's restroom in the Capitol basement Friday. The incident report states that the gun “was fully loaded with one round in the chamber and six rounds in the magazine.”


Pleaseohplease, don't squeeze the Charmin the trigger!! Ouch.

Inquiring minds would like to know why Dave Evans (who is legally allowed to carry a concealed weapon) wasn't more careful with a gun that was loaded and set to discharge.
