An Ohio man’s gun went off when he was pulling up his pants in a Chick-fil-A restroom.

The 45-year-old man was licensed to carry the concealed Glock pistol that fired one shot, grazing his leg, but the weapon did not have a safety, theJournal-News reported.

Customers reportedly didn’t hear the blast from the bathroom in the Hamilton restaurant, according to WMOH.

The man walked out of the restaurant and went to the hospital as a precaution. He was not seriously injured and won’t be charged for his fast food firearm flub.

    Lucky for the world their was nothing worthy of saving in his pants.

      The man yells ‘wasn’t me’ slinking out of the homophobe palace and went to the hospital praying for a real penis replacement.

        Real penis….like a rush lumpy between his legs? Oh no, that’s a PENIS HEAD, not a real penis.

      He could have thinned the gene pool if he was a bit worse shot than he was.

        or a bit better.

    If his glock went off, it’s because he didn’t have it properly holstered. There’s no way it’s going to fire while pulling up your pants, if you properly carry it!

    • Bunya April 30th, 2015 at 2:10 pm

      The problem is, many people who open carry, aren’t smart enough to open carry (like this guy, for example).

      • illinoisboy1977 April 30th, 2015 at 2:31 pm

        He should be charged with reckless or negligent storage/discharge of a firearm. That would preclude him from being able to carry, again. The only way it wasn’t his fault, would be if the weapon itself was faulty. In a Glock, I doubt that was the case.

          sorry for the other day, I was unnecessarily rude to you.

        • Bunya April 30th, 2015 at 3:18 pm

          I hope he’s charged. There should be no simple slap-on-the-wrist punishments where deadly weapons are involved.

    KFC = “Finger Lickin’ Good!”

    Chic-Fil-A = “Leg-Grazing So-So”

    “the blast from the restroom” … I’d figure that to be more of a Taco Bell thing.

  5. mfr4 April 30th, 2015 at 4:35 pm

    Why won’t he be charged? It seems that’s some sort of reckless endangerment or criminal negligence. What if someone else had been in the room? Plainly this idiot is not in control of his gun.

    fast food firearm flub? really?
    that’s offensive and not even funny.

    • Chris May 1st, 2015 at 11:17 pm

      Wow. Lighten up, dude. It’s humor by alliteration. Get to know it.

      • fredoandme May 2nd, 2015 at 9:18 am

        never going to happen.

        here’s an idea. why don’t you heavy down? this isn’t a joke. this was one step away from tragedy. a flippant attitude about this is the worst thing we can have, especially in our press.

        and you want me to help make it so by accepting it? you’re part of the problem.

        I wish I had more sense of humor
        Keeping the sadness at bay
        Throwing the lightness on these things
        Laughing it all away
        Laughing it alI away
        Laughing it all away………….joni m.

        p.s. never, ever call me dude.

        • Chris May 2nd, 2015 at 4:13 pm

          Humor injections just didn’t take for you, eh?

          Wow, what a morose one you must be. What are you, a dudette then ?

    Well, thank goodness the heroic Chi FIL A patron kept America safe. Someone get him a drink and a speaking engagement.

    Freedom isn’t free. And threats are around every corner. And every chicken finger.

    Stay paranoid, my friend. And keep your firearms just around your fellow nutbags.
