There is an interesting case in Wisconsin where a Concealed Carry Weapon license (CCW) holder has been charged with “negligent operation or handling of a dangerous weapon”. From jsonlin:

According to the criminal complaint, Marvin W. Jackson, 34, was shopping in the Burlington Coat Factory at 3700 Durand Ave. After he took of his jacket and laid it on a rack while he tried on another, his female companion picked up Jackson’s jacket and laid it over her arm because he had forgotten it on a rack earlier.
