An injured person is taken from the North Carolina State Fairgrounds after being wounded in a gun accident on Saturday.
The most casualties came at the Dixie Gun and Knife Show in Raleigh, where attendees bolted -- with at least one woman wiping out in the frenetic scene -- when gunfire rang out around 1 p.m., as seen on video captured by CNN affiliate WRAL.

Hmmm.... how odd.
Over the FOURTH OF JULY holiday, over 9,600 people were injured.
I’m not sure how this qualifies as a story. seeing as it was 3 different minor accidents in 3 different States.
Whats next are they going to tell us about all the different people injured in tractor shows?
Number of people killed at guns shows by guns over the past 20 years.
The media has an agenda that they have been running with since Newtown..and that is to destroy the 2nd Amendment by any means necessary..expect to hear about every single shooting anywhere in the US..doesn’t matter who does the shooting, if the weapon used was a gun you will hear about it..because the media and the White House are working in cahoots with each other to abolish the 2nd Amendment
The press will NOT go anti-2A with the gangs in the big cities...we ALL know that.
Actually, wasn’t there a young boy who shot himself in the head when his idiot father let him handle a full auto Uzi at a gun show?
hundreds of thousands of peopel at different venues.
Let’s hear some stat on how many INTENTIONAL shootings at large Libfests
Actually there will only be a lot of stories about legal gun owners.
Wonder how many got hurt in car accidents driving to and from gun shows....
You ever heard about the zip ties at Ohio gun shows, Hinckley? VERY ODD that a person got a loaded gun into one with that kind of measure, unless it was loaded afterwards-very odd indeed! BTW, them birds are huge, aren`t they?
Gang banging crimes they won’t report because its black on black crime..doesn’t fit into their narrative..but any crime where someone is hold up, or a domestic violence incident..or any crime involving a gun you will hear about it because that’s what the media has been told to do..focus on the gun..recently here in LA some thugs held up a Nordstrom’s Rack, held 14 hostages at gunpoint and a knife, one of the scum bags repeatedly raped an employee..the media ONLY focused on the guns used..only mentioned once that they also had knives
“Never heard of a gun going off accidentally at a gun show, much less two gun shows. I smell a rat. “
I don’t. I see gun show attendance going up 4x with lots of noobs showing up.
I’ve never seen an AD at a show. But the Americans are coming out of the woodwork now in preparation for bad times.
Correct. One of the worst cases of parental judgment ever. I also wonder about the people running that particular demo event. There’s just no excuse for anyone involved in that situation, except the kid who didn’t know any better.
That is a good point and perhaps explains how this has occurred.
When I am handling or cleaning a gun, I check it 3-4 times almost compusivley to make sure there is no round in the chamber or magazine in the gun.
When I hand a weapon to someone else, if there is any way to lock the breech open, I do that and in the case of a revolver I will pass it with the cylinder open and exposed.
To me every gun is loaded even when it is not loaded and I can see that it is not loaded.
I think the guns shows are being plagued with know nothing idiots who think they can make a quick buck.
