    Elementry school teacher and ccp shoots self in leg

    Teacher accidentally shoots self in leg | KSL.com


    In a restroom. For crying out loud be sensible and careful. She got hauled off in an ambulance in serious condition. Can't wait for the media to jump on this one. I guess I could come up with a more damaging scenario but it would take time and lots of thought.

    I am proud that so many teachers here in Utah have chosen to be enabled to protect their students and themselves. It is terrible when one who has chosen that route then displays such careless behavior which could jeopardize this practice.

    No students were present when this happened.

    Good grief.

    It does make an argument for more training being required.

    There is a bill in the Missouri House right now, waiting for a vote to override the governor's veto. One of its provisions is to allow the arming of teachers in schools. Good grief is right!

    sounds silly but having taught for over 20 years that is one question which is often asked....

    and it is so easy to PRACTICE AT HOME WITH IT UNLOADED till you have a safe method
    [truth is, it is easier if you are wearing pants]

    ....so few actually do though -- even those who teach our children. sad, yes?

    Probably not the one you want protecting your kids.

    Incidents like this sure don't help our cause at all.

    I wish they would start giving details as to HOW these neg discharges are happening. Reholstering?? Pocket carry with no holster, etc, etc. It will help as a learning aide to reveal details.

    I agree with practicing at home. With a good holster, it's very easy to go to the bathroom with a gun. I just leave the dang thing alone - no need to remove the gun from the holster just to pull your pants down. Leave it alone, with the whole thing in place. Easier to do with a skirt, though - you just pull up the skirt and don't have unzip or pull anything down.

    But apparently, according to the article, she was injured "when she was shot in the leg by her handgun". They make it sound like her own gun just up and shot her.

    Well, maybe the gun just didn't feel like going to school that day.

    Too many stories like this lately. That's the third ND at a school or college I've seen reported in the past year. How many are we not aware of.

    The key word is "NEGLIGENT" - every such incident is 100% preventable.

    I carry always not because I go places trouble is likely, but because trouble has a habit of not staying in its assigned zone.

    I suggest this, if you have the legs for it. Great for concealment, too:

    I certainly hope you don't wear that with patients around.

    It's not mine. But now I want one. You could conceal a medium-sized kitchen appliance in that thing.

    No training in the world will help stupid. When I`M out, my gun stays in my holster, in my pocket. Unless I have to use it,there is no reason to go into my front right pocket.A gun is not a new damn toy or cellphone. I`M sick of having to fight off new gun laws, because of other stupid people.

    Not clear on exactly what happened. My guess? It tumbled free and she grabbed for it. (If so, could this be a good case for manual safeties for some carriers?)

    Hopefully, she recovers fully, gets some additional training and practice (and perhaps a different handgun); and, the whole episode is just an embarrassing lesson in safe carry..

    And for you gentlemen teachers out there, there's this. But G_C's caveat about having the legs for it still applies.
