Robert Colt Weible: “Didn’t Know Gun was Loaded”
From this week, 65 years ago, as told by the Dover, Ohio Daily Reporter of Jan. 7, 1950:
HURT CLEANING GUN
Robert Weible of 1115 N Wooster-ave was treated by a physician yesterday afternoon for a serious thumb wound received when a gun he was cleaning in his home was accidentally discharged. The bullet from a .45 calibre gun hit his right thumb. The weapon is part of a collection owned by his late father, Robert O. Weible. The injured man said he did not know any of the guns in the collection were loaded.
