Police say a 55-year-old southwestern Michigan woman who died after accidentally shooting herself in the head in January was adjusting a handgun in her bra holster when the Second Amendment accident occurred.
You know how your bra needs adjusting sometimes, but you have a firearm in it so it accidentally discharges, then shoots you in the head? Yeah, well that happened to Christina Bond, too.
The Associated Press reports:
The St. Joseph Public Safety Department is awaiting a full autopsy report in the death of Christina Bond, but Director Mark Clapp on Wednesday released details about the circumstances surrounding the Jan. 1 shooting to the Kalamazoo Gazette.
Clapp says Bond was “having trouble adjusting her bra holster, couldn’t get it to fit the way she wanted it to. She was looking down at it and accidentally discharged the weapon.”
Bond was taken to a hospital, where she died.
So her gun was aimed at her head then. That’s some pretty awesome gun safety there.
Officers responded to 396 Upton Drive at 5:10 p.m. Jan. 1 to find Bond with a gunshot wound to the eye. She was taken to Lakeland Hospital and then airlifted to Bronson Methodist Hospital where she died the next day.
According to her obituary, published in the Herald-Palladium, Bond spent two years in the U.S. Navy after high school. She was an administrator at Road to Life Church for 15 years and often ministered at the Berrien County Jail.
She had also been recently elected as precinct delegate for St. Joseph Charter Township precinct 1.
Raw Story reports:
Last summer, she was elected as a Republican Precinct Delegate for Saint Joseph Charter Precinct 1.
Her Facebook page is filled with Bible verses, and information about organizing for the Republican Party. Several recent posts complained about Common Core education standards, and about President Barack Obama. Other posts depicted black protesters in Ferguson as dangerous rioters.
“Here’s the most critical evasive driving tactic to avoid getting swarmed and killed in a riot,” one post was titled.
“This was a great experience!” Bond wrote after being elected precinct delegate last August. “What I learned is that we need more people involved in taking our country back and it starts at home with everyday people who care, and I believe we all care. So let’s do it!!”
Guns don’t kill people, uncomfortable bras do.
Live by the bra, die by the bra.
