Now that is one sick individual.
Hmmm. This one is very, very weird, and it stinks.
According to a report on WMBF, a loaded 9mm handgun (a Hi-Point C9 to be exact), was found placed in an opened box in the toy aisle of a South Carolina Target store.
I’m not usually one to give conspiracy theories any credence, but in this case it seems absolutely clear that someone put that gun there with the intention of a child finding it.
A couple of facts about the case point to it being a plant either by an insane person who wants to harm children or an anti-gun activist.
1) The gun put there, a Hi-Point C9 is one of the lowest cost 9mm handguns available on the market. If someone was going to leave a handgun laying about with minimal investment on their part, this would be the gun to use.
