Guns make us all so much safer:
Police said a man accidentally shot himself in the leg while at a Wal-Mart store in Phoenix on Saturday.
Phoenix police spokesman Officer James Holmes said the man had a gun on his hip and it went off.
Christa Allejandro was checking out at the store near 16th Avenue and Bethany Home Road when she heard a loud bang.
“It sounded like a balloon,” she said. “We were in the aisle paying for our stuff and then the next thing you know, a couple of aisles down from me, we hear a gunshot and we see a man cover his belly.”
Holmes said the man’s injuries were not life-threatening.
