Koran-Burning Pastor Accidentally Fires Gun in Mich. Parking Lot

Florida Pastor Terry Jones is already under the gun to pull off a Friday protest in the Muslim-heavy city of Dearborn, MI. But now, rather than being under the gun, he's firing his.

According to reports, Jones's handgun accidentally fired after leaving the set of a local news station where he was taping a debate with a local Imam:

WJBK-TV reports:

Controversial Pastor Terry Jones made a name for himself after burning a Koran to protest radical Islam. On Thursday, Jones fired bullet into the floorboard of his car.

It happened in the parking lot at FOX 2 just moments after he appeared on live TV with Huel Perkins on the "Let it Rip' show.

Southfield Police say the gun accidentally discharged. No one was hurt. No Charges were filed.  Police gave the gun back to Jones and sent him on his way.

Jones's protest in front of the largest mosque in America is at risk of not happening. Prosecutors in the city are charging Jones with planning to disturb the peace and "ethnic intimidation." A judge on Thursday told Jones to pay either pay a $100,000 "peace bond" to pay for the extra security required for the event, or go to trial to determine if he's guilty of the charges.

In response to the roadblock, Jones compared himself to Martin Luther King, Jr:
