If the gun was pointed "downrange", HOW did the bullet go through the booth wall and hit the guy in the next stall?
According to the post, the gun was not being used at the time of the ND, correct?
Isn't another "gun safety" rule to unload your gun and keep the action open when it is NOT being used? (As an RSO, that's one of our ranges safety rules.)
How could the gun discharge ALL by itself if it was unloaded and the action opened?
In summary, Jennings may be a crappy firearm.
If the shooter had followed the two "SAFETY" rules above:
1. "keeping the gun pointed downrange
2. keep the gun unloaded it IF it was not in use at the time",
I just can't see HOW this accident could have happened; no matter how crappy a Jennings firearm happens to be. This article seems to be just another "Guns are evil" story.
Anyway, I hope the people will be ok. I also think the blame should rest on the person who was in charge of the gun.
(By any definition, this was a "Negligent" discharge of a firearm.)
