    FBI agent injured in firearm discharge at federal building

    The Associated Press
    PHILADELPHIA >> The FBI said a special agent was expected to be released from a hospital following the discharge of a firearm at the federal building in Philadelphia.
    Of f icials said the weapon discharged Monday morning in the loading dock of the building, and the agent was receiving medical attention for minor injuries. No immediate information was released about the circumstances.
    The FBI said in a statement that it “takes all shooting incidents involving our agents or task force members seriously” and an FBI team was investigating.
    “The review process is thorough and objective, and is conducted as expeditiously as possible under the circumstances,” the statement said.

    He shot himself? It's vague - intentionally, I suspect. Oops.
    "Since the historic ruling, the Lovings have become icons for equality. Mildred released a statement on the 40th anniversary of the ruling in 2007: 'I am proud that Richard’s and my name is on a court case that can help reinforce the love, the commitment, the fairness, and the family that so many people, Black or white, young or old, gay or straight, seek in life. I support the freedom to marry for all. That’s what Loving, and loving, are all about.'." - Mildred Loving (Loving v. Virginia)

      It reminded me of one of the video clips my firearms instructor showed to start the class. It was of two law enforcement officers in a training class for firearms and one shot himself in the foot in the middle of it. I would have asked for my money back on the spot! Starting the class in this way was excellent. He had a great montage of about 10 firearm "accidents" and explained what each person did wrong and why that was completely preventable.

        My instructor refused to call them "accidents."

        I think people who use guns professionally sometimes get overconfident.

          I don't recall the instructor saying accidents either. But honestly, before I took the class, I didn't agree with the people on this forum who said there was no such thing as an accident with a gun, that it was always the user doing something they shouldn't have done or not doing something. I didn't understand it. I thought that a gun could "go off" in some fashion and didn't realize the steps to always take to ensure there isn't a gun "accident". Now I do. Not 100% and I still would retake the class before owning a gun because I feel that I need it.

            Can't get too much training.

              There were pistols that could discharge if dropped without a finger being in the trigger guard. Older Ruger LCPs' come to mind.

                  It's been ten years since that lonely day I left you
                  In the morning rain, smoking gun in hand
                  Ten lonely years but how my heart, it still remembers
                  Pray for me, momma, I'm a gypsy now
