Some people are like the 'slinky'. Not really good for much, but they bring a smile to your face as they fall down stairs.

I can kind of understand someone that might not be familiar with a gun.   But someone a correctional officer?  in basic training?   Was he spinning it around his finger like the wild west?  How does this happen.

Often, when negligent discharges occur with law enforcement officers, it is because many of the departments have standardized in the use of Glock  handguns. Glock uses a grip safety, not a positive physical saftey. Additionally, they are striker fired, not hammer fired, which means they are ready to fire once a round is chambered.

A hammer fired pistol can have the hammer decocked, requiring a heavier triggger pull to cock and fire in one motion (double -action cocking and firing).

Striker fired often has no decocking, and if they do are still hampered if they only have a grip safety. Drawing the Glock disengages the grip safety, and often people put the finger in the trigger while drawing, and the weapon can be fired before the wielder is ready to shoot.

All my sympathy goes to the guy who got shot, none left over to the shooter, who may get a felony conviction and hard time for an 'accident'. It was an accident only to the extent that I'm willing to believe that he didn't want the gun to go off... but that's not the whole story.

Every firearms safety class I've ever taken pounds away at Rule Number 1: assume every gun is loaded. Rule Number 2 says, don't point your weapon at anyone unless you intend to shoot.

I've been chewed out by the Range Safety Officer for negligently allowing my pistol to point anywhere but down range, even when we both know the magazine is out and the barrel has a safety flag going down the muzzle and out the breach.

To handle a firearm in a car with other occupants is just asking for trouble. It may not come often, but when it does the consequences are unthinkable.

So yes, this was felonious negligence, not an 'act of god' type accident.

Sheriff warns against people 'shooting' Hurricane Irma

My favorite paragraph......
"To clarify, DO NOT shoot weapons @ #Irma. You won't make it turn around & it will have very dangerous side effects," warns the sheriff in Pasco County, which is north of Tampa along Florida's west coast.

As a matter of recent historical interest, I see where the case of the Minneapolis cop who shot and killed the Australian woman who called in a possible sex attack behind her house, as she approached the police car in her pajamas, that case has been referred to the DA's office.
