68-year-old Kyle Bragg of Glynco, Georgia was a patient in a hospital in Jacksonville, Florida. His wife, 64-year-old Linda Bragg, who has a concealed weapons permit, was visiting Kyle. Linda forgot she had a .38-caliber Smith & Wesson handgun in her purse.
According to a hospital spokesperson, Kyle "who is a patient at the hospital who does appear to be extremely disoriented went into his wife's purse where there was a gun. A that time he did fire off a round. It did go into a wall."
Florida allows individuals with a permit to carry loaded, hidden guns into hospitals. The public can only hope that those with a concealed weapons permit can at the very least remember where their guns are.
