Off-duty deputy’s un-holstered gun goes off in his pocket at a bowling alley and strikes a 10-year-old child in the back. It appears this guy may have been trying out for the FBI. $10 it was a Glock or similar with the safety on the trigger. You never carry one with a round in the chamber and no holster or you get this. We can’t fathom what’s so hard about figuring that out.

No, with opponents refusing to obey the rules.

Even a newcomer to firearms like me knows how stupid this was… even before ever handling one. Holy crap.

Who carries a gun in his pocket while bowling? How could that possibly be comfortable?

Wait, I can answer that first question myself. A “deputy” wouldn’t carry a gun in his pocket while bowling, but a guy who’s at the bowling alley to engage in a drug transaction would. They need to figure out what this guy was doing at the bowling alley that made him think a gun in his right front pants pocket was necessary… because it sure as hell wasn’t bowling.

Why do people want to blame a Glock? I have had a Glock .40 for years and it never “fired accidently”. They are just a different kind of pistol and have to be handled differently. Number one rule is never have a round in the pipe until you intend to use it. Rule two is always carry one in a holster on your hip or an approved shoulder holster. Not stuck in your pants, not in your pocket, in a proper holster. Not hard to figure that out if you are halfway smart.

I have carried a Glock 19 for years and never keep a round in the chamber. Ditto for the .357 revolver in the house. That’s kept unloaded with 3 speed loaders next to it. Those are the common sense gun rules I favor.

All my guns are loaded with the hammer on an empty chamber. Except my .9mm. It has an excellent thumb safety and when set it is impossible to fire the gun accidentally or any other way.

See what lowering standards does? The government has been trying for years to lower standards for cops. I have seen it and this is what you get, no F*cking common sense….

About 10,12 years ago New Mexico dropped the size requirements for state cops to attract more recruits. I got stopped at a DUI checkpoint one evening and this woman, maybe 5’2″ and 100 pounds soaking wet was wearing a state cop uniform. New Mexico is a vast, wide open state and our staties patrol alone, sometimes miles from any kind of backup and I’m thinking wtf is this? That little girl could pull a truck over on I-40 and some big burley driver could slap the crap out of her with one hand, she could get hurt or even killed by an asshole and he wouldn’t have any problem doing it. Lowering standards is not only a danger to the public, it is a danger to those who should not be cops to begin with.
