Man Cleaning Pistol Shoots Hand

It’s his constitutional right:

SILVERDALE — A 27-year-old man shot himself in the hand while reportedly cleaning a pistol Saturday.

The man told medics responding to his 911 call that he was cleaning a .45-caliber handgun, a Glock 21, when it fired, sending a bullet through his hand. The bullet also put a hole in the screen of a flat-screen TV in the apartment, located on the 12000 block of Cloudy Peak Lane NW in Silverdale.

The man was in a friend’s apartment, but was by himself at the time. He called 911 at 3:13 p.m., said Scott Wilson, Kitsap County Sheriff’s Office spokesman.
