t happened at least three times in Walmarts in the last few years--gun accidents. In 2014, a woman was killed in an Idaho Walmart when her two-year-old reached into her purse and retrieved her gun. People who knew the woman said she did not "carry" for self-defense but because it was her "right."
Six months earlier, a man carrying at a Phoenix Walmart, no doubt also because it was his "right,"shot himself in the leg. Nice. Nine days later, a carrier at a Columbus, Indiana Walmart shot a bystander when his handgun slipped from his holster. Do Walmart customers understand their right to not be shot while shopping is trumped by gun carriers' "rights"?

Accidental shootings by gun carriers have also occurred at Target, Sam's Club, Staples, Starbucks (more than once), a Pro Bass shop and at a million dollar wedding at the Waldorf-Astoria hotel in New York city.
