Actually there were a couple of incident at a gun shows this year alone where people were shot with one of the displayed guns. They claimed the gun "accidentally" went off. At one show 3 people were shot.

It is more common than you would think. Stupid people bringing loaded guns to shows.

At Tulsa, where they have up to 100,000 people at a time and 1500 tables of guns, they have had one incident of accidental discharge resulting in injury in the last ten years.

I was two tables over when it happened. A guy shot himself in the leg, after putting a round that he brought, in a gun he was looking at. Don't know what he was trying to do but it was stupid. Most gun people know better!
That was also the year that we had a bunch of anti gunners running around the show trying to find things to make trouble with.
Don't know if he was with them or not.

Sikh temple shooter was former U.S. Army specialist, 'frustrated neo-Nazi'
The gunman who killed six people inside a Sikh temple in the U.S. and was killed in a police shootout was a 40-year-old army veteran, officials said Monday, and a civil rights group identified him as a “frustrated neo-Nazi” who led a white supremacist band.

Police called Sunday’s attack an act of domestic terrorism. The FBI said there was no reason to think anyone else was involved in the attack, and they were not aware of any past threat made against the temple.The shooter was Wade Michael Page, said First Assistant U.S. Attorney Greg Haanstad in Milwaukee. Mr. Page was discharged from the army in 1998 and declared ineligible to re-enlist, according to a U.S. defence official who spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to release information about the suspect.

Officials and witnesses said the gunman walked into the Sikh Temple of Wisconsin and opened fire as several dozen people prepared for Sunday morning services. Six were killed, and three were critically wounded.

Police say Ohio man carried gun, ammunition, knives into ‘Dark Knight Rises’ showing

By Associated Press, Updated: Tuesday, August 7, 12:09 PM

WESTLAKE, Ohio — Authorities say a Cleveland-area man has been arrested for carrying a gun, ammunition and several knives into a showing of the “The Dark Knight Rises.”

Police in Westlake say a manager was suspicious of the man and his satchel when he entered the theater for the 10 p.m. Saturday showing of the Batman movie.

What's the world coming to, can't bring a gun, knives and bullets to protect yourself, what about his constitutional rights.
maybe next time, he'll bring an M16, just in case

CALGARY - An American police officer who complained in a letter to a Canadian newspaper about not being able to carry a gun during a trip to Calgary has become the target of another kind of weapon: the tweet.

Twitter users have let loose a barrage of jokes over Walt Wawra’s Aug. 7 letter to the Calgary Herald complaining that he could not pull a gun in Canada, a country that, unlike the United States, stringently restricts firearms.

Wawra, a veteran of the Kalamazoo, Michigan, police department, wrote that he felt threatened by two men who approached him and his wife at Nose Hill Park and asked, “in a very aggressive tone”, if they had been to the Stampede yet, referring to the city’s rodeo and Western heritage festival.

“We ignored them. The two moved closer, repeating: ’Hey, you been to the Stampede yet?’

”I quickly moved between these two and my wife, replying, ’Gentlemen, I have no need to talk with you. Goodbye.’“

Wawra said the recent mass shooting in a theater in Aurora, Colorado, and also incidents in Canada, showed why ”a man should be able to protect himself if the need arises.“

The letter sparked a frenzy on Twitter, where many ridiculed the reaction to what appeared to be a mild encounter, spawning the hashtag ‚NoseHillGentlemen.

Jenn Prosser tweeted: ”Drove through Kalamazoo, MI., yesterday. Didn’t stop to chat.“

”Someone just asked me if I am watching any of the Olympics. I wanted to reach for my gun,“ wrote a University of Toronto grad student with the Twitter handle MargstI.

A sign outside a local restaurant read: ”Have you been to the Stampede yet? Just kidding. Don’t shoot me!“

Seriously what was the COP going to do SHOOT HIM, this cop has serious issues, I'll bet there are many more
We didn't force you to come, if you feel naked without your gun, stay home, where you can feel safer

Honest mistake’ lands Utah student in jail for bringing handgun across Canadian border

The university student from Alpine, south of Salt Lake City, is stranded in Canada because down in Utah they apparently don't know you can't just bring your pistol across the border.

Kraig and his brother Keith were arrested by Canada Border Services last month while on a six-week motorcycle camping holiday cum cancer fund-raising trip.

According to The Associated Press, the Jacobson boys crossed the border at Niagara Falls, Ont., to take a brief view of the falls.

That's when the trouble started. Kraig had a handgun with him, brought along for protection against bears and such when they camped.

When a border agent asked him if he was carrying any firearms, Kraig lied at first. When he was ordered to pull over for a more extensive search, he admitted he had a pistol locked in his bike's trunk.

"He had been riding all day in the heat, and he was kind of dehydrated and stressed out and said no," his father, Gordon Jacobson, told the Salt Lake City Tribune.

Faced with a search, Kraig "came to his senses" and told the second officer, but by then, "It was too late," his father said.

He was arrested and charged initially with a weapons offence, plus smuggling with malicious intent and lying to the border agent, according to the Tribune.

Kraig, who turns 27 on Wednesday, was held in the Niagara Detention Centre for several days before being bailed out and is now staying with Canadian relatives of his neighbours in Alpine, The Associated Press said.

Gordon Jacobson said the gun charge was dropped because authorities determined he did not knowingly violate Canadian gun laws. But the other charges remain and the case is not scheduled for trial until next Jan. 24. Conviction carries the prospect of a four- to-six-month jail term.

His family had hoped Kraig would get off with a wrist slap, a fine and deportation, for his "honest mistake." But the Crown prosecutor is taking the case to trial.

"He is stuck in a country where he can't leave and can't hold a job," Gordon Jacobson told the Tribune.

Jacobson said he didn't even know Kraig had been arrested until his brother Kevin, who wasn't charged, posted it on Facebook.

Kraig and friends have started web site to raise money for his legal fees, including selling T-shirts. They've also started a petition asking the prosecutor to go easier on him.

The prosecutor wouldn't comment about the case, so it's hard to understand why the Crown wants to make an example of Kraig Jacobson.

[ Related: Gunless in Calgary: American policeman jeered for letter ]

The Canada-U.S. border in southern Ontario is one of the major conduits for smuggled American guns, and with the recent spate of shootings in Toronto, perhaps the Crown's policy is to get tough.

A Florida man last month was sentenced to three years in prison after being caught trying to sneak 75 guns across the border at Coutts, Mont., into Alberta, according to CBC News.

But the vast majority of guns seized at the border belong to Americans who simply didn't know they could bring their shootin' irons with them on vacation or while transiting to Alaska with no paperwork.

Kraig Jacobson said he met other Americans in detention facing similar charges.

"It's just really hard to prove I didn't have criminal intent to sell guns up here," he told The Associated Press. "There are a lot of Americans being held up here in the same situation."

"Kraig recognizes his mistake," his father said told the Tribune, and knows he needs to pay the consequences but "It seems to me a year out of his life is a little ridiculous."

"There is no tolerance on the Canadian side for making an honest mistake," said the elder Jacobson with no hint of irony, living in a country that that prizes zero-tolerance law enforcement. "They will throw the book at you."

Interestingly, most commenters to the Tribune story had little sympathy for Kraig's plight.

"If he had spent 35 seconds Googling this, he'd have discovered that ANY handgun with a barrel shorter than 4" (which is most of them) is illegal in Canada," said one.

" Intentionally packing a gun and failing report it at a border point is not an honest mistake. Stupid, yes. Honest, no," said another. "Use your time in Canada to learn something about the culture. Come to understand why Canadians are not gun crazy."

And the lesson of the day is don't lie and know gun laws of other countries.
