The interesting thing about that story in the USA Today is that the account of the incident is different than the story that came out originally from the local news station. I am not sure if the original story was wrong or if the the later one is a cover up, maybe someone should look into this. First, the story that came out earlier today.. I made an LGF page and quoted the text from the story then..

An eyewitness told ABC11 that a person brought a loaded semi-automatic pistol to a security check-in area around 1 p.m. Saturday. The gun owner reportedly removed the gun’s slide out magazine, but there was still a round in the gun’s chamber.

When a law enforcement officer went to secure the weapon with a zip tie through the trigger area and around the grip, the gun went off as the zip tie was pulled tight.

Two or three people were injured. Varying accounts said a person was shot in the hand, another in the arm and possibly a third

However, now if you follow the same link I provided, the story has changed, not a little bit, but completely.

MEDINA, Ohio (AP) — Accidental shootings at gun shows in North Carolina, Indiana and Ohio left five people injured Saturday, the same day that thousands of gun advocates gathered peacefully at state capitals around the U.S. to rally against stricter firearm limits.

At the Dixie Gun and Knife Show in Raleigh, a 12-gauge shotgun discharged as its owner unzipped its case for a law enforcement officer to check at a security entrance, injuring three people, state Agriculture Department spokesman Brian Long said.

Two bystanders were hit by shotgun pellets and taken to a hospital. A retired deputy sheriff suffered a slight hand injury.

So either the first story was completely wrong or the later one was a total cover up. Odd how the local news completely changed the story without acknowledging the apparent error in the original story. It is not a small difference, the first story cites an alleged eye-witness to the event and they claimed it was a semi-automatic pistol involved and the fault belonged to the gun show official. Then the story completely changes to a shotgun that fired when a guy unzipped the duffel bag gun case. Totally different story. Who was lying?
