Oops.

ORLANDO, Fla., Feb. 21 (UPI) — A gun safety class attendee in Orlando, Fla., was accidentally shot in the foot by his instructor, police reported.

Robert Frauman Jr., 50, was one of three students at a concealed weapons certification class at Summit Church Saturday, when he was struck by the stray bullet, a church spokeswoman told the Orlando Sentinel, adding he was “doing well” and the bullet did not hit any bones.

Instructor Michael Phillips could not be reached for comment, the Sentinel said, but another National Rifle Association instructor told the newspaper it is forbidden to take ammunition to classes.

The event was not sponsored by the church, which offered one of its meeting rooms to the group after some of its members made a request, the spokeswoman said.

“We won’t be having anything like that in our church in the future,” she added.

  1. First thing I thought of is, ‘How, the heck, did live ammunition get into that room!’ Now, the church wants nothing more to do with guns, and all because of one fool of a, ‘safety instructor’ who didn’t follow the rules. I would think that, ‘gun schmuck’, Lee Paige, would have taught the rest of us an important lesson, but, apparently not. (In Florida again, too! What is it, the drinking water?)
