    There was an accidental discharge of a gun Saturday night at a Fort Wayne Walmart. Authorities say the gun fell from a holster and discharged at the store at Apple Glen. No one was injured. The Journal-Gazette reports that just one bullet was fired. No arrests were made.

    1) Negligent Discharge
    2) "the gun FELL from a holster" ? Was the person doing a hand stand?
    3) Why were no arrests made?

    It would be called an accidental discharge. It began with Negligent Firearm handling.

    A couple of problems here:

    1) The gun "fell from its holster" - only 3 reasons I can come up with: the holster had a catastrophic malfunction, this guy used the wrong holster/rig or he was 'playing' with the gun for some reason.
    2) The gun discharched - with all of the modern safetys on hand guns, external and internal, this shouldn't happen IF he was using them correctly.

    Negligence is a legal term indicating responsibility. This is almost certainly (can't say for sure without all of the facts) negligence.

    I am happy no one was hurt! The really sad thing is that this will be used to stir anti-gun agenda's.

    Are we going through this again? How about we ban accidental and negligent and substitute "unintentional" instead.

    I don't believe in negligent. Only stupid.
    Ignorance is a long way from stupid, but left unchecked, can get there real fast.

    These kinds of things are what I've been trying to get across in some of my posts.

    Is it a good thing that "everyone" is rushing out and buying guns and getting there CCW permits?!

    Lawfully or not, there are some that just shouldn't be allowed to handle firearms.

    This is just my opinion. :)

    carelessness while in possession of a deadly weapon could have disastrous results.. the entire situation is negligence in my mind. Careless or wreckless, that would be the defining line as to the extent of the negligence.

    Yeah, and like I've been saying; a little mandentory training could prevent this type of thing which is doing nothing to help us at all.

    I know I am a minority here on this but I carry unchambered. Call me stupid but sometimes stuff happens to the best of us. My owb holster even has a thumb break. The others are nice pocket holsters designed for the gun it carries.
