to me it seems that calling this an accident may be misleading. i mean no offence but i believe that this incident is the result of some poor choices. accident implies that he had no control and the reality is he did. first the firearms safety device. was it engaged? it was his responsibility to make sure the safety was on. even if he had done this was it a poorly made gun? he had the responsibility to edcucate himself and make sure the gun had adequate safety features. then in the manner in which it was carried he had the responsibility to make sure the gun would not fall out. this is the hardest thing of all as you want instant easy access to your gun but also want it secure. i realize that we can all come up with scenerios where the gun might pop out but as responsible gun owners IT IS UP TO US TO BE AS SAFE AS POSSIBLE. NO EXCEPTIONS NO EXCUSES
