I still contend these idiots are the reason a lot of business post no gun. They are not anti-gun they are anti-idiot.

Did ya see the FBI agent "in hot water" after an accidental discharge?

Accidental / Negligent Discharge seems to be the risk people are most afraid of. Furthermore, they believe that this will be a more common occurrence than the random thief/murderer on their premises.

For some reason (some say they've been trained to think this way), they believe that government training will all but eliminate the threat of Accidental / Negligent Discharge, so the badge-ed among us can get special dispensation to the laws. But don't we all check the stalls for guns in the public restroom as officers seem to randomly leave service weapons there?

Update: gun owner won't face criminal charges, had new gun.

https://www.whio.com/news/local/police- ... nMD5nr0DP/

The 61-year-old man who accidentally shot himself in the lower abdomen in the bathroom of the TJ Maxx/Home Goods store at Austin Landing on May 28 will not face any criminal charges, Miami Twp. police said Monday.

The Xenia resident told officers he was carrying a new gun and it did not fit in the holster properly, but he was trying to make it work, according to a police report.
