Bad place to conceal a weapon? A Michigan woman died last month after she accidentally shot herself in the eye with a gun she kept in her bra, USA Today reports. Christina Ford, 55, "was having trouble adjusting her bra holster, couldn't get it to fit the way she wanted it to," the director of public safety in St. Joseph tells the Kalamazoo Gazette. "She was looking down at it and accidentally discharged the weapon." She died in a Kalamazoo hospital the next day. According to an obituary in the Herald-Palladium, Ford, the mother of two sons, was a Navy veteran and a member of the Christian Motorcycle Association. She worked as a church administrator and was also a Republican precinct delegate in St. Joseph. (More Michigan stories.)
