Irresponsible Gun Owner of the Day: Officer David Odom [Not Shown]


“An 18-year veteran of the Nederland (Texas) Police Department is home recovering following an incident where he shot himself in the foot.” That’s the report from And no, that’s not a metaphor. He really did blow a hole in his hoof. How? Well…”Officer David Odom (not pictured above)…was off duty at Delta Downs in Vinton, La. on Wednesday, Oct. 24, when his gun fell out of his pants. The weapon discharged while he was picking it up.” Never mind the whole Mexican carry thing, that gun only fires if you, well, pull the trigger. So we’ll be sending Officer Odom an IGOTD trophy to admire between chiropodist appointments. The gun safety refresher course will be up to his bosses at the cop shop.
