    They should absolutely charge him. I feel that this was a purely careless act of negligence resulting in significant injury. I know some may argue that those injured were not severely injured, however, any time someone is shot, it is a significant injury. This individuals carelessness could have cost people their lives. I do not feel that he should be charged with aggravated assault or something similar, I feel that reckless endangerment fits better.

    It takes only a handful of idiots like this to make us all look bad. It's one of the 4 basic rules people, don't finger **** the trigger until you're ready to shoot!

    keep you finger off the trigger and you drastically reduce the chances of an "accidental" discharge dramatically. apparently this man had no business handling a firearm in the first place.

    Around here they check your firearm at the door to make sure it's not loaded. Do they not do this at other gun shows?

    Negligent discharges at gun shows are a rarity. 4-5 in a day/weekend is enemy action.

    at the Indiana incident, the guy was reloading after leaving the show. He was outside.


    at the North Carolina incident, the shotgun discharged at the inspection station at the entrance.
