Stupid mistake, and really stupid decision after the mistake.

Probably gonna get hit harder than he deserves.... but sounds like he probably shouldn't be carrying.

Sounds like DA doesn't know what a safety is. Probably doesn't deserve to be charged but definitely take his license idiots like this give the Brady campaign and other libs the stories they love

Well two inputs are enough....

You should have to pass a course to have a Concealed Weapon. I know unpopular but my daughter has been ran through her paces at 13 and is more weapon smart thanks to an Army vet and myself than a lot of adults that I know.I can hand her a loaded weapon and she will unload it and check it clear and safe for herself before she does anything else. She also know that the only safety is your trigger finger. It is an amazing concept that I can hand my .40 to a 13 year old and she is safer with it than most adults. It just proves to me that training is required.

Isn't training required in some states? Az isn't, but in Cali my buddy had to prove to our local sheriff that he knew what he was doing. Idk, never gotten one before

Gotcha. It would be nice if the gun industry would come up with sort of training you have to take, vs having the government get even more involved in stuff. Or have CCP's taken care of at a store level, at my old gun store there is no way you were even touching a handgun till they knew you were semi competent

I'm not going to cast any stones. It has never happened to me and I hope it never does. Incidents like this should be a reminder to all of us as to what can happen, especially if we get lackadaisical with our firearms handling. I don't understand though, how this could have happened if the pistol was in a holster.

That's a crock. How is one to get competent if everybody had that attitude? They should first set the example by checking the weapon to show that it is unloaded. Then when they hand it to the customer, ask if they are familiar with handguns and or that particular model, then give a lesson in the operation starting with checking it unloaded. The visit should be finished with the suggestion to attend a handgun safety class with info on who and or where that can be accomplished.

There isn't a safety on DA revolvers and most DAO autos and the safety on striker fired pistols is on the trigger. A lot of DA/SA pistols don't have safeties either, just de****ing levers.

The only safety is your trigger finger. Everything else is mechanical so it can fail. If your finger fails that is your fault.

Amen to that...and I might add the gray matter between one's ears.

Kudos to you for teaching her early. Firearms training is the responsible thing to do. When I was a kid, firearms and hunting safety was taught in the schools at about the fifth grade level. It wasn't for a grade, but we got a West Virginia DNR hunter's safety card and it was on file that we had taken the course. That same course is now required to get a hunting license here.
