    Sometimes I save quotes from the most unlikely of people. Underwood played for the Patriots and was cut 2 days before the Super Bowl. The biggest game of his life. This is what he said:
    “This Is Nothing But MOTIVATION,” Underwood tweeted. “I Been Thru A LOT...But There Are people In This World with More Serious Problems So I can’t Hang The Head....Thank You Lord #Blessed.”
    Just makes you remember what is important. This poor girls did nothing and may die. I am thank ful for everything we have and will pray for her.

    Sadly, I would consider it a miracle if the girl makes a full recovery, let alone survives.

    There is Nothing "accidental" about this. There is no excuse whatsoever for showing someone your firearm at church or any other public place.

    There is no way this "accident" happens except when this moron needs to show off his big bad gun so badly, that he can't even wait for church to get out. Not only that, he has to give his audience a manly thrill by dry-firing. What kind of idiot does that? There can be no quarter given to this fool.

    He knew there were bullets in the mag. He put them there.
    He knew the mag was in the gun when he racked the slide. He put it in.
    He knew there was a bullet in the chamber. He racked the slide.
    He knew that pulling the trigger would fire the gun. Florida requires a firing demonstration.

    "ooooh I forgot" just doesn't cut it. That's a covenant you make when you choose to own a firearm. If you can't pony up to that, sell your guns you don't deserve to own them. This discharge is as deliberate as if he pulled the trigger on purpose. Whoops. He did.

    Responsible firearm owners should be right at the forefront of the lynch mob, using NRA branded rope. No one, save the family and congregation, should be more outraged by this act of wanton, deliberate negligence.

    Very sad this girl is fighting for her life. This moron should never have had a CCW license in the first place. Unacceptable.

    UPDATE:

    Had a company wide meeting today in two country's (US & Thailand) praying at the same time at 11:30 EST for Hanna and family. Hanna had the bullet removed Sunday evening and she made progress last night and is still alive. Took over two hours to perform the procedure. The docs gave her a 1% chance of survival. Today she was blinking her eyes so there is sign of brain function. She is, however, in a coma at this time. All other vital signs are perfect. Her brain is very swollen and they are waiting for it to subside.

    Every moment I think about her and all involved, I hope and pray for healing and strength.

    Since incidents like this seem to keep repeating themselves, I'm wondering if the reason that people think these guns are empty when they drop the magazine is because they aren't in the habit of carrying with one in the chamber. That's still not an excuse for clearing the weapon and visually checking the empty chamber. I'm just trying to figure out how three people can be looking at a gun and nobody bothers to clear the weapon.

    The title of this thread is wrong. It was not an "accidental discharge". It was a negligent discharge: There is a huge difference. The guy was handling a gun in an occupied building. He failed to clear the piece prior to showing the gun = negligent discharge.




    It's a very sad thing this lady was critically injured.

    Thanks for the update, what she has going for her is youth. I had a brain injury when I was 18 and it took 2 years before I was back to normal. If there is no paralysis hopefully the synaptic nerves can rewire themselves.

    I have been praying for Hanna to be healed.
