    Hard to clean much with a cartridge up the spout. One would think emptying it would be the first step, no matter who's driving the bus.

    That is a pretty good policy to have.

    However, that's usually not the case with most of these incidents. In most cases they know how to make the gun safe. They've probably done it countless times before. But for whatever reason, they neglected to do so this time, and a tragic accident occurred because of their negligent act.

    (How's that for all you AD/ND traffic cops out there... I used both accident and negligence in the same sentence!)
