    This is why you need fewer requirements for firearms ownership. Otherwise, someone might know that a pistol with no trigger guard could be dangerous. Sorry, more dangerous. Ignorance is bliss.

    She should have been charged. The gun has a safety and was improperly stored. Second Amendment, my ass. You have to prove competence to get a concealed carry permit. She failed. Pull her permit and take her weapons.

    An accidental, but monumentally stupid, shooting. No excuse.

    Is this just a Schodinger's Cat problem?
    Is she a good person with a gun or a bad person with a gun?
    I think she should have shot herself to prove she was a good person with a gun.

    I had a great instructor years ago in the police academy. He said there is no such thing as an accidental discharge, only a negligent discharge of a weapon. If only truly qualified people carried guns there would be very few of them.
    I have nothing but contempt for overgrown children living out a white knight fantasy by incompetently carrying a gun.

    This is the sort of thing that many properly trained gun owners don't seem to get. Thing is, the NRA & gun mfr's have convinced many people that anyone not only can, but should own a gun. Even something that's a privilege like driving a car is not regulated enough. Since anyone owning a gun became a right, it's much worse.

    There is a safety, the button shown near the hammer. It appears the correct way to carry is half cocked with the safety on. They will probably discharge by dropping on the hammer with the hammer down or maybe she was carrying it fully cocked. But yes a very cheap weapon. I'm glad she didn't kill someone else in the store.

    Looking online, the reviews for the pistol manufacturer are universally horrible. Terrible quality to the point of unsafe, and company unresponsive to fixing bad pistols. Might be a factor. But with no trigger guard, the only way to carry that pistol is with the hammer down, safety on.

    In the article, the wife claims "no one answered when she dialed 911 from her cell phone " which she got from her car --- can someone figure out the priority here ? She carries a loaded Derringer in her purse, but leaves her (and his) cell phones locked in the car (?)

    Well-regulated militias don't shoot their husbands.

    What are you doing about it?

    The case was classified as an “accidental injury” and closed.
    Wow that is some steaming-fresh horse**** right there.

    Does FL not have laws prohibiting discharge of a firearm with X-distance of a building, etc? A gun was fired in a supermarket. Even if it had not injured anyone, that's gotta be worth a citation of some kind.

    What if it had hit the checkout clerk instead of the husband?

    Since it is a single action (trigger pull only fires it, does not cock and fire it) it must have been cocked in her purse. Bad practice

    You mean to say that the 3 hour class to get a CC permit in Florida doesn't make you an expert?

    Personally, I don't feel the need to walk around with a gun in my possession for personal protection and can think of very, very, very few people who have a real need to carry one concealed for personal protection. I think for the most part that folks carrying a firearm around make us all less safe.

    Yes, there are a lot of folks from Chicago, NY, MI, OH, CA and many other points northward that have tried to recreate this state into the cesspool that they somehow swept under the rug from whence they came. They complain about the heat and humidity, yet never are separated by more than 50' from their AC. They build huge, sprawling McMansions on what used to be the watershed and stake excessive claims on 'their' share of what's left of the other natural resources.

    Floridians are formed by two methods - birth and migration. In a state of 14.7 million people, native-born Floridians are outnumbered more than 2-to-1 by out-of-state Floridians. Native Floridians are a minority in their own state.
    More evidence to the notion of; "No matter where you go, there you are." Amazing how "globally" aware all you braniacs claim to be, by not much more than canned politics alone, yet still manage to hang on to what amounts to cultural/regional ignorance nationally.

    And yet you sit here year after year, beating the same dead horses and wondering why more people are not inclined to follow your idea of good politics.
