    Sure, guns go off all the time, heck, my gun safe is full of holes from my guns going off. Very little information in the news report but if I was LEO I'd be leary of the gun just going off, I'd check for a bullet hole through clothing, if none found, I'd ask the man if he was handling the firearm.

    I do not advocate playing with anything while sitting in a public restroom, but if you absolutely have to play with something, pick something other than the trigger on your gun.

    Maybe the NDer should ask Larry Craig for advice on alternative ideas on what to do while bored in a public toilet.

    The news report indicated he was a CHL holder.

    Should the guy be ridiculed on these interwebs? Yes. But this stuff makes ALL of us look bad. It really upsets me.
