    Vendor Shoots Woman At Gun Show While Demonstrating Gun Use

    The Columbia County district attorney's office will determine whether the vendor, Geoffrey Hawk, will face criminal charges stemming from the shooting Saturday at the Bloomsburg Fairgrounds, Officer Brad Sharrow said. Hawk, 44, of Warminster, didn't immediately return calls yesterday to his cellphone and business, In Case of Emergency Enterprises. He was manning a booth for his business at the Eagle Arms Gun Show at the time of the shooting.

    Familiarity some times breeds contempt.

    I wonder if it was one of his guns or the woman's.

    A good safety reminder to all of us be very careful.

    Had to be his .380 - we mere mortals are never allowed to being a loaded, unziptied gun inside a gun show.

    stay safe.

    Exclamation Gun show shooting

    In other reports:

    "Hawk told police he had done the same demonstration about 20 times without incident before the shooting, "racking" the gun's slide to clear it of bullets each time, Sharrow said. Somehow, the gun was loaded when Gearhart was shot."
    So the weapon was his.

    " The show has an entrance sign that says "No Loaded Weapons" and (Joel Koehler, the gun show organizer) said his staff checks all guns to ensure they are unloaded before they are brought in for display.

    Appears the vendor ignored the rules.

    Reckless endangerment is being pursued, 2 years and $5K is the max(?) sentence.

    "demonstration completed!" ... no winners in this one.

    Any guesses to the actual sentence?

    I would acquit of course.

    All guns are loaded, never horseplay with firearms. Really simple.
