There are a variety of gun holster styles on the market today, offering options to carry guns on-body, mounted in a vehicle under the steering wheel, even dressy, hand-tooled leather belt options…why compromise on style? But, perhaps one of the more unique holsters is the bra holster.
Yep, that’s right, women. We can actually carry our concealed fire arm in our undergarment. Now, I don’t know about you, but carrying my gun in a bra holster, with it being so close to my heart, I would use extra precaution. This, however, wasn’t the case for Christina Bond, a 55-year-old Michigan women.
Bond was having some trouble adjusting her bra holster because she couldn’t get it to fit the way she wanted. Some time in all the tugging and pulling that goes into the adjustment of one of these garments, Bond’s .22-calier revolver fired. She was looking downward at the time and the bullet went directly into her eye.
Police officers later found Bond and got her the medical attention she needed. At this time she was alive, but by the next day, Bond died.
It is unknown if the bullet pierced her brain or not, but some things about this situation amaze me.
- If she was just shot in the eye, even at such a short distance from the end of the gun barrel, wouldn’t she have been able to call 911 or call someone? (We all have phone numbers saved in our smartphones these days.)
- Why didn’t Bond just remove the holster all together and adjust it off her body? (Guns don’t kill; people kill with their irresponsible actions.)
As I conclude this blog post, readers, I’m left shaking my head and rolling my eyes in disbelief, so I defer to you to answer these questions.
I look forward to discussing your reactions, thoughts and opinions!
