Yep. It happened like this…
Granddaddy had served in WWII, and like many servicemen, he brought home his pistol. He must have kept it loaded and lying around the house, because one night when my mother came home from a date, she found the police there…
Seems that my grandmother had accused my grandfather of cheating on her.
The argument grew heated.
She picked up the gun and shot him.
I think her aim was off, because she got him in the leg. Knowing her, she probably aimed higher. Oh, about 24 inches higher.

Keep it in mind the next time someone tries to tell you that we’re all safer with guns in our home. Some of us might be, but not all of us are.
