This is just gonna add propaganda fuel to the gun control movement. Guns don't just accidentally fire all by themselves. He HAD to be playing with the hammer, trigger, fiddling with it or something. Again, it's the people, NOT the guns. Whoever conducted this guys "weapons safety" class should lose their "Safey instructor" certification too; this just proves that the "safety" classes are just another pile of crap required by our genius anti gun "leaders". Safety classes ARE a good idea of course, but only effective when given by competent people; NOT the buddies of the local "judges".

It's people like this guy that give gun owners a bad name. There is no way the gun went off unless he was playing with it. Guns get enough bad press as it is and fools like this guy don't help. New York is a hard enough place to get a handgun without stupid actions such as this giving gun owners something else to overcome. The guy needs his pistol permit taken away for gross negligence.

Idiot. Who brings a gun to see Santa?

Maybe intelligence tests should also be proposed to own a gun, along with psychological evaluations and background checks. Clearly, just because you can, doesn't mean you should.

I've been following ALL the area's news outlets and there is no more mention about this moron, not even his name; any chance the whole thing is going to "disappear"?

Now we have the Webster shooting by an ex-con.
Now everybody is going to scream the "guns", again. "Where did he get a gun???" "Why did he have the gun???" The problem is the PEOPLE and the system. Everybody in the system is going to scream "why did he, an ex-con, have a gun?". NO, the question is why was he NOT sentenced to life without any chance of parole or any other release after he brutally beat a 92 year old woman (his own grandmother) to death??? That is a very dangerous person. The question is WHY was he released back into society? Then we have morons for "judges" and "prosecutors" and lawyers who are so stupid that they say "well, it may not be a perfect system but it's the only system we have", yet they NEVER even attempt to correct the problems with it. The problem is the morons that administer, control and corrupt the system. THIS is a perfect example of where the families need to hold those people responsible and accountable for the guy being on the streets and I DO MEAN HOLD THEM ACCOUNTABLE. Just like pedophiles, same thing. It is NOT a matter of where did he get the gun; it's WHY was he released into society! It's because of arrogant, corrupt, incompetent "judges" and "prosecutors" who manipulate and circumventthe system, all while jeopardizing the public.

Let's see; 1st degree reckless endangerment, discharging a firearm in public, fleeing the scene, violating the terms of a "concealed" permit,(& I wonder if it's even legal to carry in a public/county park), & whatever else. I want to know what, if any, charges this dunce will face. I know what he would have faced if my kid was in there at the time & THEN by golly I would have been charged ON THE SPOT! I agree too that guns don't just fire on their own or "accidentally"...whe re did THAT come from?(SOMEBODY is already trying to sugarcoat this one).

Well, it's now January 4th, and the Sheriff's office is "still investigating" yet still no name arrest or charges...nothing has changed in Niagara County. Guns don't just "fire" on their own; he HAD to be fiddling with it or something, in a PUBLIC PARK full of CHILDREN waiting to see Santa, then fled the scene. There is NO possible logical reason this guy wasn't immediatly named, arrested and charged. He is obviously somebody "important", somebody's friend or something and this is obviously business as usual in Niagara County; selective law enforcement prevails, AGAIN.

I THOUGHT this Sheriff was doing a good job but I have to agree, this is being covered up. It's obvious.

REALLY ticks me off. Good thing I wasn't there with my daughter, that guy would have never made it to his car but, then I would probably have been arrested. I don't care who he was, ya can't fix stupid but you sure can get it's attention.

I guess the "DA" doesn't understand the concept of "reckless endangerment". Can you say "one of 'their' buddies". All this while the govnah & everybody else is screaming about guns & safety....amazing, just amazing. MORE amazing is that you, the people, will re-elect these guys to be Sheriff & DA. Sad.
Guns yes people no
