Shooting your mouth off about the rights of gun owners is one thing.

Shooting the actual gun is something else entirely.

Police in Wilkesboro, N.C., are currently looking for a man who accidentally fired his handgun during a Tuesday night discussion about 2nd Amendment rights in a GNC vitamin store, UPI.com reported.

The unknown suspect took out his gun to show it to an employee. At some point, he accidentally fired a round into the store printer, according to Dumb As A Blog.

After seeing what he had done, the alleged printer assailant told the store employee that “he could not go down for this” and immediately left the crime scene, WFMY-TV reported.

The suspect is described as a white male in his late 20s, weighing about 170 pounds, who is 5-feet, 8 inches, with brown hair and brown eyes. He fled the scene in an early 2000s model dark colored Honda Civic, MyFox8.com reported.

Other than the printer, no injuries were reported.
