    That's why they're called "deadly weapons"!

    You never know when a spring might break and the gun accidentaly
    discharge and shoot someone.

    They're just lucky the gun didn't continue accidentaly discharging and
    kill a whole bunch of people.

    :rofl:

    YOU WOULD THINK

    SINCE "Cecil tells NEWS9 both deputies are also armorers for the department and have specialized training in firearm repair."

    THE ****** WOULD HAVE UNLOADED THE WEAPON PRIOR TO WORKING ON IT!!!

    You would think. I've seen some mighty stupid gun handling from people that should know better.



    All I can say is stupid is, as stupid does.

    Step TWO of Glock disassembly is "pull the trigger". I wonder which step they skipped... :upeyes:

    Do wonder what will be discovered when they check the "broken weapon."

    Actually "pull the trigger" is step 3 of Glock disassembly.

    Step 1: unload

    Step 2: SAFETY CHECK. CHECK THAT GUN IS UNLOADED!!! Multiple times!!!

    Step 3: point in safe direction, press the trigger.

    I'd be willing to bet there was a broken recoil spring assembly that tied the gun up and in the process of clearing it they forgot it was loaded. They need to slow down.

    I remember when somebodyelse's Glock got all tied up with a round in the chamber and they handed it to me saying, "Fix this." I took it to a barricade we have on the range and used the rear sight on the edge of the 2x4 frame and was able to rack it out while it was pointed down range. I even went throught the trouble of putting eyes and ears on just in case. I was perfectly willing to break off the rear sight rather than fiddle with it some other way.

    "forgot it was unloaded"?????

    Really? That might explain it. But completely inexcusable. That's why they call it a NEGLIGENT discharge.

    "Gruzinskas said the department has started looking into whether there was some kind of break down in protocol that led to this."

    LOL this is about 20mins from where I live. I used to work in Moundsville, WV. Same city where a gun owner started waving a gun at an old lady who cut him off while entering Wal Mart.

    Crazy stuff.

    Someone got REAL Stupid. There is very little, other than shooting or holstering, that I will do to a pistol without dropping the clip and clearing the chamber or chambers on a revolver.

    None of my "Unloaded" firearms are going to "Accidentally" discharge.:steamed:
