Republican Party Official Fatally Shoots Self in the Eye While Adjusting Gun in Her Bra Holster
Michigan law enforcement officials say that a Republican official who fatally shot herself was adjusting her bra gun holster at the time of the accident.
On New Year’s Day, 55-year-old Christina Bond, the Republican Precinct Delegate for Saint Joseph Charter Precinct 1, died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the eye.
On Wednesday, officials released new details surrounding her death.
“She was having trouble adjusting her bra holster, couldn’t get it to fit the way she wanted it to,” St. Joseph Public Safety Director Mark Clapp told MLive. “She was looking down at it and accidentally discharged the weapon.”
According to her obituary from Florin Funeral Service, Bond joined the Navy out of high school and served two terms with the Military Police. She worked as an administrator with the Road to Life Church and was an “active member of the Christian Motorcycle Association.”
The obituary said Bond was “on FIRE for the LORD.”
She had been elected to her position last summer.
“This was a great experience!” Bond wrote on her Facebook page after the win. “What I learned is that we need more people involved in taking our country back and it starts at home with everyday people who care, and I believe we all care. So let’s do it!!”
Otherwise her Facebook page was mostly filled with Bible verses, complaints about Common Core and President Obama, and posts depicting protesters in Ferguson as dangerous rioters.
