The annals of gun safety — Flippin edition

Posted By on Sat, Sep 28, 2013 at 6:22 AM

Coincidence. I took a look at the Stephens Media website just after posting the article about the movement of school officials to put more guns in schools as a security measure.

And I found this from KAIT in Jonesboro:

The mayor of Flippin says he won't resign his post, despite a recent incident in which he accidentally shot out a window in City Hall.

At a city council meeting this week, Mayor J.J. Hudson said he wouldn't step down. Councilwoman Stacie Hopper requested Hudson's resignation, saying she'd been contacted by several residents who wanted Hudson to step down.

The Baxter Bulletin reports that Hudson accidentally discharged a rifle while visiting the police chief's office in City Hall earlier this month. No one was injured, though the incident left a baseball-sized hole in an office window.
