Brand new operation, oopsies happen and most arent as crirical as this. Most mistakes are able to be reviewed and make the necessary corrections in procedures without no one ever knowing. I guarantee it will be long,long time before something like this happens again; assuming management/employees are competent If it were my business I would close the doors for a few days or whatever is necessary and retrain the employees. Worst case scenario is this is an example of someone opening a business who knows very little about firearms.

With the huge increase in fire arms ownership over the last 6 years we have a lot of potential ND's out there waiting to happen.


yes. just because they work at a business and part of their job involved them handling firearms, does not mean that they know what they are doing. Case in point, I was looking at a very nice Smith revolver at a local pawn shop.
When the employee took the gun out of the case, he did open and check the cylinder, then he spun it and did the one hand cowboy and slammed the cylinder shut.

Funny thing about ND's they are always unloaded and no one ever pulled the trigger. It's crazy how a gun can just lay there load itself,
And go off whenever it feels like it.

I had one time that I found a gun was loaded that I thought was unloaded. Fortunately in clearing it properly I found my error and there was no harm done. Hand me an unloaded gun I'm going to clear it and be sure.

I am afraid that "negligent discharge" is far to compassionate a phrase for the incidents occurring (while still better than "accidental shooting").

I think maybe one of the following might be more appropriate...

ID - idiotic discharge
MD - moronic discharge
AD - asinine discharge
WD - witless discharge

Feel free to add your own...

was shooting a pump 30-06 one time...during a rapid fire session, a round got lodged up inside the trigger assembly. the gun jammed and would not fire or allow the slide to operate. we kept it pointed in a safe direction..the floor of the truck..
when we got back to the "cabin", we put it barrel down, pointing at the floor, on a table to look down inside...that's when we 1st noticed the round jammed in an unbelievable spot down in the trigger mechs...when we free'd the round BOOM...THE PLASTIC TABLE BLEW UP LIKE A BALLOON!!!!! the round went through the floor..small as a pen tip.
point being, stuff happens, and a 20 year vet should know to be pointing it in a safe direction.(this means you should not get even yer hand grazed when it goes off, and if your not counting on it to go off...well thats not being safe.
SAFETY IS NO ACCIDENT
