Negligent Discharge - No Charges

link kindly provided by our commenter Willis. I think we talked about this one when it happened but I couldn't find it.

What's your opinion? Is it really possible that no charges have been brought? The gun owner feels bad, I guess that's something.

Would you agree that this is a case for the MikeB is King Rule formerly known as the one-strike-you're-out law?

Please leave a comment.


  1. Thanks for posting this! One interesting side note is that the gun owner that is about to be sued may not have insurance enough, if any to cover the loss should he lose. Meaning that Concealed Handgun folks may need to fork over some cash for the privileged to carry to cover themselves for an accident. Right now the NRA offers an insurance but only up to about 100 grand. Homeowners blanket policies may also help but the language better be specific I'm guessing.

  2. Yeah, another interesting aspect is how gun-apologists keep saying guns don't fire when dropped. Yet, we keep reading these stories.
