I had a friend bring this to my attention. Here's an article in the DesNews (which is no friend to gun-owners):
Concealed weapon permit holder injures self in accidental shooting

DRAPER â€" Shrapnel from a bullet wounded a man's foot after he accidentally fired a gun inside his office Wednesday morning, police said.

Around 11:30 a.m., two men were looking at a handgun inside an office building at 15 W. Scenic Pointe Drive (14380 South), said Draper police Sgt. Scott Peck.

"They thought it was unloaded," said Draper police Sgt. Scott Peck. "One of them pulled the trigger."

The bullet hit the ground and some shrapnel cut a 28-year-old man's foot. "He just needed a Band-Aid," Peck said. Police said the man had a concealed weapons permit for the handgun.
OK, how many rules did this guy break? And what in the blazes was he doing showing off his gun at work!?
If he is a member of our forum or sees this, he should consider himself thoroughly chastised. :beat:

Somebody post the four rules of safe gun-handling...

I caught the very end of this story on the news last night, I looked for it today on KSL but couldn't find it. Are these the four rules you were looking for?

1. Treat every Gun as if it were loaded.
2. Never point any gun at anything you don't want to destroy.
3. Keep your finger off the trigger until you have identified your target.
4. Know your target and what is behind it. :dunno: How does this stuff keep happening, this is when you have to say ( :withstupid: )

Why is it that we never see the following on the news???

Chef cuts finger in accidental cutting incident

DRAPER â€" The blade of a knife wounded a man's finger after he accidentally touched the blade inside his kitchen Wednesday morning, police said.

Around 11:30 a.m., two men were looking at a knife inside an kitchen at 15 W. Scenic Pointe Drive, said Draper police Sgt. Scott Peck.

"They thought it was dull," said Draper police Sgt. Scott Peck. "One of them touched the blade."

The knife cut a 28-year-old man's finger. "He just needed a Band-Aid," Peck said. Police said the man was a highly qualified chef.
Makes a pretty lame story, huh?

Or how about...

Man dents fender in driving accident

DRAPER â€" The fender of a 1992 Ford Escort was dented after a driver accidentally ran into a toolbox in his garage Wednesday morning, police said.

Around 11:30 a.m., two men were pulling the Escort into a garage at 15 W. Scenic Pointe Drive, said Draper police Sgt. Scott Peck.

"They thought it was in Park," said Draper police Sgt. Scott Peck. "One of them let it roll into the toolbox."

The toolbox caused a softball sized dent in the left quarter panel. "He popped the dent right out with a plunger," Peck said. Police said the man had a driver's license.
Yes, I'm being cynical, but it sure is interesting to see the abnormal fascination the media has with guns.

Those are great Apollo! :ROFL: :lolbang:
In many ways I wish that we could see these lame types of incidents reported. These things occur more frequently than gun "accidents" and can kill just about as easy. So why doesn't the press do anything about it? Probably because the stupidity of the incident, and the fact that it isn't illegal to use a knife inside the city limits, as well as the fact that it isn't something which can really be inflamed and distorted to submit the masses to the liberal mindset of fear and loathing which guns would do for them!

Now off subject! Wooo Hooo ! this is my 500th post! Certainly no 1,000--but for a regular guy not acting as an admin for the site it is pretty solid.
Ok, Bragging/patting self on back--over! :thewave: :party3: :band: :yell: :dancing:
(I just had to do it! - lol)

We work and work to get the public to realize that as a group we are normal responsible citizens and then this numb noggin sets us all back ten years. :ack:
