I'm all for gun rights--I myself have a Mossberg 550 pump-action shotgun, and have dreams of roaming the streets with it ala Omar in The Wire. But I also know that if you're waving a gun in public, you're going to freak people out. And I also know that if you try to clean your gun in public, stupidity will most likely ensue. And I know that if you try to clean your gun at a Taco Bell, stupidity WILL ensue, just like what happened to some woman in something called Airway Heights, Washington.

From the local news media:

A woman who accidentally fired a gun at Taco Bell on Tuesday afternoon may be charged with a misdemeanor.

The Airway Heights Police Department responded to the restaurant along State Route 2 around 2:30 p.m.

Police said two women were sitting at a table inside the restaurant when one of them removed her handgun, and put it on the table to show her friend that she was having a cleaning issue.

The woman removed the magazine and pulled back  the slide to reveal the chamber. The slide slipped and the gun discharged. A single round hit their table, ricocheted off the floor and into the ceiling.

Nobody was hurt.
