    most car crashes are alcohol related...did the driver "accidentally" get drunk?
    another large percentage are due to distracted driving. not paying attention to your driving is no accident.
    crashes caused by people driving while tired are also not "accidental"

    about the only car crashes that could be considered "accidents" are those caused by unforeseen mechanical failures of the vehicle.

    So, I suppose I should ammend my previous statement and say that "the only accidental discharge is one that occurs when a weapon spontaneously fires itself due to some flaw in manufacturing"


    I can't think of a single example of an "accidental" discharge that wasn't due to negligence on the part of the gun owner.

    Who is responsible for the care, maintenance, inspection, assembly/dis-assembly of a weapon?

    There is no such thing as an AD. HE made the gun negligently discharge!

    A weapon malfunction is just that. Not much excuse for those either if you are inspecting your tools when you maintain them.

    It can be an accident and still be negligent. I get the whole concept...it is to avoid saying that someone wasn't to blame.

    if you are negligent...then it wasn't an accident...and you are to blame

    The word "revolver" showed up in the article. It's pretty damned hard to AD with a revolver. I'd kind of like to know what he was carrying and how.
