    That would make too much sense.

    It amazes me how some people live as long as they do.

    Chief Deputy Kevin Cecil tells The Intelligencer/Wheeling News Register (Two Are Shot - News, Sports, Jobs - The Intelligencer / Wheeling News-Register ) that the accident occurred Monday evening at one employee's residence.
    Cecil says a department-owned gun malfunctioned and discharged while the employees were working on it.
    Sounds more to me like the two employees "malfunctioned" when they decided to "work" on a loaded gun... Here's your sign

    there is no such thing as an accidental discharge, there are discharges caused by being negligent otherwise known as negligent discharges.
    too bad for these 2 hope they are ok and they need to go through some retraining, to adjust their poor gun handling habits.

    Since it was a department issued weapon and onea the guys was suppose to qualify within a day or two of the incident I would say that they carry guns at work.

    What do they teach at the academy?
    It doesn't appear to be the law, and it doesn't appear to be gun safety.

    Cecil says a department-owned gun malfunctioned and discharged while the employees were working on it.
    In this case I would assume that the weapon involved will be sent in for proper repairs. Be interesting to see what they would find wrong with it.
    Not that I expect that to happen.

    One of the best rules for gun handling safety is to never point the muzzle at something you would rather not see destroyed. If this rule is obeyed and treated with the utmost priority, a slip up of one of the other rules won't turn out so tragic.
