A “negligent” shooting at the Denver Mart’s Tanner Gun Show is giving leftists another reason to howl about gun safety. I say “negligent,” because as a witness to the shooting said, “The word ‘accident’ implies it was impossible to prevent, that nobody is at blame. ‘Negligence’ implies this could have been prevented.”

Investigators say that as a vendor was setting up their table a gun went off and one of the other employees was shot.

“Sign right there says no loaded guns, and that applies to vendors as well as patrons that go in so I don’t know what happened,” said Mike Clements, a vendor set up outside the front doors of the Tanner Gun showroom.

“I mean, there’s signs all over stating no loaded guns,” said Jason Rovida, who was attending the show Saturday.

What happened, according to witnesses inside at the time, is a vendor either knowingly or unknowingly had a loaded weapon on him.

Apparently a customer was looking at a .357 magnum when the gun went off and hit someone in the leg. The victim yelled, and bystanders rushed over to help the bleeding man. After a failed tourniquet attempt, a witness was able to stop the bleeding before the paramedics arrived. Another witness said that the police took the “negligent” shooter away in handcuffs, “My understanding is, they handcuffed the guy that shot the other one, took him off and paramedics took the other guy.”
