Guns Out-Of-Control at the White House

Today, while the President was heading to Virginia Tech as mourner-in-chief two Secret Service officers were wounded by accidental gunfire at the White House.

One officer suffered a shrapnel wound to the face, and the other was wounded in the leg; neither's injuries are life-threatening. A spokesman said that the shots were fired by "accidental discharge."

Talk about gun control. Geez.
