    Gun Safety Gone Bad...

    Gun safety class in S.C. ends with a bang

    By Associated Press


    ANDERSON, S.C. -- A gunshot was fired into the floor in an Anderson County middle school after a student accidentally pulled the trigger of a deputy's holstered gun.
    The gun fired Wednesday morning after a student grabbed it as the deputy told them how hard it was to take a gun from an officer's holster, Sheriff David Crenshaw said.

    The student's finger apparently was small enough to get inside the holster and pull the trigger, the sheriff said.

    The bullet fired into the floor, and debris cut and scratched two students. But no one was seriously injured, school officials said.

    The sheriff's office has begun an internal investigation and the officer involved is on administrative leave, said Crenshaw, who would not identify the deputy or say whether he would be paid while on leave.

    "The officer there today had a major lapse in judgment," Crenshaw said Wednesday. "He was just trying to be nice to the kids and made a faulty decision. It was an accident. The good Lord blessed us that nobody got hurt."

    Was he the only one in the room qualified to demonstrate weapon safety?

    I once heard that one of the most common calls US doctors get is someone accidently shooting themself in the foot. I didn't believe it at first, but with close calls such as this one and the "I am the only person in the room qualified to use this firearm" video I'm starting to think that there may be some truth to it.

    "And that, kids, is how safe my holster is."
    And Shepards we shall be,
    for thee, My Lord, for thee,
    Power hath descended forth from Thy hand,
    That our feet may swiftly carry out Thy Command.
    So we shall flow a river forth to Thee
    And teeming with souls will it ever be.
    In Nomine Patris, Et Filli, Et Spiritus Sancti.
