I just HAVE to comment on this dumb incident, so listen up officer. Here is a good point to remember when handling a firearm.
If the magazine is loaded and you rack the slide to load a round, and then you pull the trigger, there is an EXTREME possibility that the gun will fire which is exactly what this officer did! INSIDE a public building yet! There is no such thing as an "accidental discharge" if your fingers are where they are supposed to be and not on the trigger. DUH.
Sounds like more range time for the officer. Maybe give him a water pistol in the meantime.

So he is now getting paid to sit home due to his own stupidity. Nice deal if you can get it.

I Don't Own A Firearm,
But If I Did, I Wouldn't Aim It At My Own Nuts And Pull The Trigger!
