Guns Make Us Safer

Woman who fatally shot herself in eye was adjusting her bra holster, St. Joseph police say:

ST. JOSEPH, MI — A woman who accidentally shot herself in the eye on New Years Day at her Lake Michigan home was adjusting the handgun in her bra holster, police say.

St. Joseph Public Safety detectives are still waiting on the full autopsy report in the death of Christina Bond, 55, but released the new details to the Kalamazoo Gazette on Wednesday.

“She 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,” said St. Joseph Public Safety Director Mark Clapp.

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.


  1. “She was packing a Glock and a pair of .38’s.”

    Enough with the snide commentary. I didn’t even know “bra holsters” existed, and had to google them. Bizarre. Truly can’t see how these things could be safe, or even serviceable.

    Additionally, for there to have been an accidental discharge as described, she would’ve had to have been carrying with a round chambered (or carrying a revolver with the hammer over a live round). Nuts.

    Sorry a life was lost, but this is just–nuts.
