A Trump supporter, and self-proclaimed "patriot" shot himself in the leg, amidst a first amendment demonstration in Gettysburg, PA.

Benjamin Hornberger, 23, reportedly shot himself in the left thigh, after his gun accidentally went off after he rested the bottom of a flagpole on his holster.

From The New York Daily News:

Parks police at the scene told Pennlive.com that the gun was “bad.” They had difficulty disarming the weapon, which accidentally went off again as police handled it, the news website reported. The self-described “patriots” showed up to Gettysburg Saturday amid rumors that protesters with the anti-fascism movement — dubbed Antifa — planned to wreak havoc on the Civil War battlefield. Men decked in camouflage — toting rifles and handguns — were spotted in the park Saturday, expecting to clash with Antifa protesters, Pennlive reported.

Too bad he didn't accidentally shoot himself in his crotch - save us a lot from reproducing another 'self- patriot'
