    Fucking idiot she is. Remedial firearm handling instruction and practice is needed.

    The scary thing is she isn't the only idiot out there.

    There have always been idiots. The real scary thing is that this idiot gets to help write gun laws.

    "User error" is to kind, it implies a mistake. The idiot purposely pulled the trigger to check and see if the gun was clear.

    Negligent discharge is perfect.

    Also, referring to BKR's comment of remedial training here are my google results with the terms "unloading a gun."
    http://www.thewellarmedwoman.com/loa...ding-semi-auto

    http://forum.pafoa.org/training-tact...c-firearm.html

    Show me where any of those say "dry fire your gun" to make sure it is unloaded.

    All of them say VISUALLY CHECK to make sure the gun is clear.

    I like this little rhyme for kids and this idiot:
    Drop the mag then pull the slide.
    Take a look and feel inside.
    If you unload your gun this way,
    Youíll always know that itís OK.

    And this is the problem with having all the news about guns written by people who know **** all about guns. The first question this woman should have been asked by every reporter who talked to her is, "Why the hell did you pull the trigger?"

    The gun is a Ruger LCP (the Richmond Register described it as a "Kruger" LCP--http://www.richmondregister.com/loca...l-Annex-office ).

    Just so there is no confusion--I agree that she's an idiot when it comes to gun safety.

    I've never handled an LCP--or even seen one in person. I did find the manual at: https://ruger-docs.s3.amazonaws.com/_manuals/lcp.pdf . Ruger describes the LCP as "Single strike double-action". She probably pulled the trigger to de-cock it--and because she's an idiot. Nowhere does Ruger recommend doing so as part of the unloading process.

    Yeah, on an LCP you have to cycle the trigger to de-cock. Of course, you are supposed to UNLOAD it first. It's pretty obvious she ejected the mag, and dropped the hammer without cycling the slide.

    Or the even more stupid: Racked the slide and THEN ejected the mag and pulled the trigger to de-cock. EITHER WAY, THAT IS A "negligent discharge." Not an accidental discharge.
    And lo, Kano looked down upon the field and saw the multitudes. Amongst them were the disciples of Uesheba who were greatly vexed at his sayings. And Kano spake: "Do not be concerned with the mote in thy neighbor's eye, when verily thou hast a massive stick in thine ass".

    Not sure if the chamber is clear?

    No problem: just point firearm at someone and pull the trigger.

    You'll likely then know whether or not the chamber had a round in it.

    Please make sure the lucky recipient shares your genotype.

    Thank you.
