That is terribly sad.
I guess I just don't see the relevence to the other story.
This is a ND negligent discharge from someone not even carrying a concealed weapon for instance.
They were driving down an interstate witha loaded rifle. Heck it's bad enough hunting fromthe bed of a pickup truck, but this is even stupider.
this is not related to defensive purposes at all.
I guess it proves it stupid to turn the safety off and pull the trigger while point ing a rifle in an unsafe direction but I don't see how this has any relevance to carryin ga weapon with no safety such as a glock.
As sad as this is, it was an easily avoided accident. Unlike say my button on my jeans say catching the trigger of a glock because I decided to mexican carry or something without a holster.
Safetys are great but when you really need your gun , it's one second too late to click it off.
It inevitatibly happens no matter how much you hunt. Sometimes you forget to click it off.
