>"The 17-year-old boy's parents were shocked when he returned home from school with blood on his shirt and bullet fragments in his neck. The student's parents rushed him to a hospital for X-rays." How the heck do you get through the rest of the school day without anyone noticing this?

Reminds me of the video of the government agent (forget which, FBI maybe) in front of a classroom of kids telling them "I am the only one qualified to handle this weapon" As he shows them a loaded Glock (I think) and proceeds to shoot himself in his own leg. Then he tries to play it off as if he's okay. Edit: [Here's](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QNa5n2I_DUw) the video. He was a DEA agent.

There is no such thing as "accidental discharge of a fire," only, "negligent discharge." -US Navy I mean, seriously, just keep your damn finger off the trigger and the safety on. And maybe keep a round out of the chamber until you really want to shoot the damn thing.

He must have seen someone accidentally shoot a gun in a video game.

It's ok everyone, the teacher also "serves as a reserve officer for the Sand City Police Department." Quality hiring by both the school and PD.

So a kid got bullet fragments in his neck and the school says "Nah, he's good to walk home"!?

*Negligently.* Not "accidentally."

Clearly this is a thing today. A School resource officer accidentally discharged his weapon at a school in Alexandria, VA today also. https://wtop.com/alexandria/2018/03/school-resource-officer-accidentally-fires-weapon-alexandria-middle-school/

Rule 3: keep your finger off the trigger unless you are ready to shoot. It's not that difficult.... Why was it unholstered anyway?

He should have had a second gun so he could shoot the first bullet out of the air rendering it harmless

What? You mean humans have accidents and that a gun magnifies the consequences of accidents? Pfft. Put more guns in schools to protect people from the accidents, of course!

I am Jack's complete lack of surprise.

Obviously a Soros plot to keep guns out of schools

He didn't go to the hospital until after he got home from school??? No administrator thought to take him or call his parents to the school immediately After? That just screams negligence and lawsuit to me. Also, every time I see one of these posts about teachers having guns go off in a classroom it makes me think of Kelly Kapoor: Kelly: Dwight, I would like tomorrow off so I could go on my American Idol audition. Dwight: American Idol? What? No. Kelly: Okay, I guess I could just not go. Do you guys wanna hear my solo? Dwight: No. Kelly: [singing] Why did my temporary boss go on a shooting spree... Dwight: Okay, fine you can go on your singing audition.

See if the students were armed, they could have stopped him from misfiring his gun. /s

So, this dumb fuck piece of shit doesn't get to be a cop or a teacher anymore. Right?

>The teacher had just told the class that he wanted to make sure his gun wasn't loaded, when the gun fired, according to Gonzales. That's one way to check.

Cops are the people that I have seen break safety rules more than any other people. I am sure that people that go to ranges often will agree.

The gun wasn't the only thing fired today.

Dammit Dwight! Just because you are a volunteer deputy on the weekend does not mean you can be shooting them guns out of your holster!

My HS chemistry teacher used a handgun in class to help us remember what a mole is. Early morning class, still kinda sleepy, teacher drones on. All of a sudden he yells "OH, MY GOD", pulls out handgun, takes several shots at countertop. There are screams and students crying as teacher walks over and picks up a stuffed mole by the tail. He shot blanks. "Didn't want you to forget what a mole was, now you'll remember." High school in the 1970s. A little different than today. And I don't remember what a mole is.

Stupidest words ever: "I didn't know it was loaded". This so-called "teacher" said he wanted to "check" to see if it was loaded. He should have *assumed* it was loaded, and behaved accordingly. Sheesh, what is *wrong* with someone who thinks that *maybe* it's loaded, and then proceeds as if it's *not*? Gosh, I mean, what's the worst thing that can happen if it *is* loaded? You *assume* the gun is loaded. And WTF is up with this guy wanting to teach his students how to disarm someone? Guy sounds like a big stud /s Throw the book at him.

"I am the only one in the room profussessional enugh to curry this weapon." Boom.

> The 17-year-old boy's parents were shocked when he returned home from school with blood on his shirt and bullet fragments in his neck. The student's parents rushed him to a hospital for X-rays. > "He's shaken up, but he's going to be OK," Gonzales told KSBW. "I'm just pretty upset that no one told us anything and we had to call the police ourselves to report it." What kind of backwoods, hilljack school sends a student home with parts of a bullet in his neck, doesn't call the parents or anything and doesn't call the police about the incident?

> no one suffered "serious injuries." One 17-year-old boy suffered moderate injuries when fragments from the bullet ricocheted off the ceiling and **lodged into his neck** I don't know about you, but BULLET FRAGMENTS LODGED IN SOMEONE'S NECK sounds like a pretty fucking serious thing.

I thought this was a fucking Onion article.

>he wanted to make sure his gun wasn't loaded 1st rule of gun safety : *Treat every gun like it's loaded*
