It's a simple rule everyone should follow: Remove the gun before you remove your pants.
William Rood of Elizabethton, Tennessee, didn't follow the basic getting-undressed guideline and ended up in the hospital.
Early Sunday evening, Rood took off his pants, leaving his .25 caliber Beretta pistol in the right front pocket. When he placed the pants on his dresser, the pistol discharged and hit Rood in the nose and chin, the Johnson City Press reported.
Fortunately, no one else was injured by the "wardrobe malfunction."
With the bullet still in his neck, Rood was transported to a nearby hospital then airlifted to Johnson City Medical Center.
American readers, if you carry a gun, please take your pants off responsibly. Safety first.
