Hidden Criminal Shoots Himself by Accident - Gets Arrested

Jose Rivera, 31, was charged Monday with criminal possession of a weapon and reckless endangerment. 
Police found Rivera bleeding from a wound in his left hand after responding just after midnight to a reported gunshot victim at 32 Starr Avenue. Rivera told officers he had been shot at another location. 
The officers quickly determined it was accidental and then found a loaded .380-caliber handgun wrapped in a plastic bag under the car in the driveway. Police say Rivera did not have a pistol permit to legally possess the gun.
Some of the pro-gun folks pretend to not understand what I mean by "hidden criminal." It's convenient for them to divide the world of gun owners into "good guys" and "bad guys." I guess simple minds need simple ideas to believe in.
