This dumb mass was lucky and so was she...

A concealed weapon permit holder showing off his pistol late Sunday inside Miller's Orlando Airport Ale House and accidentally shot one victim, according to Orlando police.


John A. Smith drew the .45-caliber Kimber pistol show its safety features to a friend when he fired it into the floor, a report stated.


A piece of the bullet struck Leanabel Torres-Rodriguez, 22, leaving a small wound above her right ankle.


"Rodriguez stated the handgun was pointed at the ground when the gun accidentally discharged," according to the report. "Rodriguez stated she did not wish to press charges and signed a declination of prosecution."


The report did not indicate if Smith was showing the gun to Torres-Rodriguez.


By the time police arrived after the 10:34 p.m. incident, Smith left the restaurant at 6141 So. Semoran Blvd., later saying he panicked and drove home, according to the report.


"I'm the guy you're looking for," Smith, 36, told police when he returned without his $900 Kimber 1911 Custom II handgun. "Smith stated he was not drinking while at the Ale House."


Smith proved to police he had been legally carrying a concealed weapon by showing his Florida concealed weapon permit, the report stated. Florida has issued 1.2 million active concealed weapon permits, but does not test applicants on their knowledge of state laws restricting where and when weapons can be carried.


"If any person having or carrying any dirk, sword, sword cane, firearm, electric weapon or device, or other weapon shall, in the presence of one or more persons, exhibit the same in a rude, careless, angry, or threatening manner, not in necessary self-defense, the person so offending shall be guilty of a misdemeanor of the first degree," the law states.


Smith was issued a trespass warning banning him from the Ale House. Neither Smith nor the victim could be reached for comment Monday morning.


Criminal charges may follow.


"There are various laws regarding firearms," police spokesman Sgt. Jim Young wrote the Orlando Sentinel. "In this incident, the person was not arrested, but follow up investigation is being done to determine if any charges will be filed."

I really hate the charge of improper exhibition of a dangerous weapon or firearm but if there's anyone that should be punished for it, it should be this guy, morons like him making concealed carry licensees look really bad, ugh

This idiot needs to be prosecuted -if only there were a special charge for morons- and have his CWP revoked permanently, he and his kind are the reason those of us who carry responsibly are vilified in the media.

I think we know where that conversation was headed.

"You wanna hold it? Set your beer down and check it out."

Common sense seems like a rare thing when you read stories like this.

Umm if it's a concealed carry permit why the hell is he brandishing it to "show off" safety features, all it did was show off he is a certified dip****.
