    And as far as a grip safety like on the XD series pistols I guarantee you that wouldn't prevent somebody from wrapping his fingers around the backstrap and pulling the trigger with his thumb while lookibng down the barrel

    Yes, this particular firearm was apparently unusual with regard to how the bullets are dispensed, and from where. One should always ask first where the bullets are dispensed from, and only then not clear the weapon, point it at something and pull the trigger.

    Respectfully, keeping his damned finger off the trigger would have prevented this.

    GLOCK OWNERS - Do NOT look at the trigger really hard.

    If you MUST look at the trigger then just give it a casual glance...Don't STARE at it! The gun could go off.

    Keep your gaze off of the trigger and out of the trigger guard.

    Never look at your gun at all until the muzzle is pointed in a known safe direction.

    In order to prevent a GLOCK Accidental Discharge when LOOKING at your Glock...wear dark sunglasses and that will prevent your vision from causing the firearm to discharge.

    Rule #1 Always treat every firearm as if it were loaded
    Rule #2 Always keep the firearm pointed in a safe direction
    Rule #3 Always keep your finger off the trigger
    Rule #4 Always keep the firearm unloaded until ready to use
    Rule # common sense Don't ever give someone a loaded firearm especially someone who is not familiar with that firearm or these rules because they could be an idiot or do something an idiot would do

    Sounds like Sgt. Dave shouldn't be allowed to carry a gun because he doesn't know how firearms work. You pull the trigger and they go bang!

    The problem is.... people believe this stuff actually happens!!

    Like the SUV that goes on a rampage through a market, killing 6 people. Nothing about the driver would be even mentioned in a new report till the very end.
    There are too many people out there that don't understand or take the time to understand - People and their actions cause these 'Accidents', not the mechanical device.

    "The person was just looking at the gun, and he was unfamiliar with it and it discharged," said Sgt. David Walker of the Van Buren County Sheriff's Office.

    Couple of points:

    1) Sgt. Walker should learn how to use the English language correctly to express what I'm sure he knows is fact regarding "looking at" vs "messing with" and

    2) Is there any person older than about 12 on the planet that doesn't know if you pull the trigger the gun will go BANG. My 14 year old has never held, shot or looked at a shotgun but I would bet a $100 that she could answer correctly the question "What would happen if you play with the trigger".
