This topic always brings in many variations on people's opinion about what is what, but IMHO, when dealing with firearm incidents, there are only negligent discharges and I can't think of a single instance where it is an accident. To identify it as an accident removes ownership of responsibility and accountability. I have always stressed the four rules of firearm safety to anyone I introduce to shooting. I thought that if the four rules were followed, no negligent discharges could ever occur. A recent incident taught me otherwise. That incident deserves it's own thread, so I won't get into it here, but I do admit it was negligence that led to the incident. Anyone believe accidents really do occur? I'd like to understand of such a case and why no one is directly responsible for such an instance.
