There ARE NO gun "ACCIDENTS", only negligence. There are very specific rules to follow when handling a firearm and when one of these so-called accidents occurs, you can bet your life one or more rule was ignored. These rules are not numerous or complicated, and everyone schooled, even informally, in ANY way regarding FA handling is given this information.

EVERYONE formally trained is ABSOLUTELY trained in these FUNDAMENTALS. Literally millions of responsible gun owners whether private citizens or professionals practice these rules by HABIT every day, and therefore handle their weapons safely for themselves and those around them. A ten year old scout could remember and habitually practice these simple rules day after day and never have an "accident". When a grown man (person)...a professional does the wrong thing in such a risky situation, s/he should be punished or fired. To do anything less is acceptance of: laziness, poor judgment, irresponsible/careless behavior...or just plain stupidity. Any of those should disqualify a person from the job of 'serving and protecting'. That person is not up to the requirements of the position and not worthy of the title of peace officer.
