2 hurt in accidental shooting at North Carolina gun show

— Officials said two people were accidentally shot and wounded at a gun show at the North Carolina state fairgrounds.

It happened Saturday at the Dixie Gun and Knife Show, a quarterly event that usually draws thousands of people to the fairgrounds in Raleigh.

The fairground is operated by the state agriculture department. Agency spokesman Brian Long said a 12-gauge shotgun discharged while its owner unzipped its case for a law enforcement officer to check it at a security entrance.

Emergency crews responded to the scene, and two people were loaded into ambulances.

Long said the shotgun’s owner brought the weapon to the show to find a private buyer.

The show shut down early Saturday.

every shooting just shows how important the second amendment is. doesnt matter how many kids are killed, or idiots at a gun show, or someone shooting their family member - every shooting just reinforces how great the second amendment is. the more shootings we have the greater the second amendment is. It rises supreme over any other amendment an should be cherished by all, not just republicans and mouth-breathing, shoeless, inbred tea partyers.

You should start your own newspaper inquire. You could make your own decisions on what to report.

There are plenty of left wing papers around the country doing the same thing. That's life and life's just not fair is it? I can find tons of right wing articles the ADG does not report either

NRA nuts at it again, now shooting one another. This will be one way to eliminate the mentally challenged NRA goofballs.

In a related story, 3,182 babies were intentionally killed in America today by abortion on demand. Wasn't this shooting accidental?
