    police report from UC-Denver ND

    The police report from UC-Denver on that ND by an employee:
    http://www.9news.com/assetpool/docum...e%20Report.pdf

    "her handgun got jammed & while trying to unjam it, the handgun went off"

    "[the owner] took the handgun apart to make it safer for them... the gun seemed to be stuck while [the owner] was trying to put it together"

    She said she got it for protection, but it's a .22 magnum... 5-round revolver. Better than nothing, but not by much.
    And she talked with police. SMH

    She may lose her CC permit over this, and accidental discharge is inexcusable, but I do like how the reports indicate that she was not charged with any crimes, at least so far.

    I can't imagine the embarrassment and shame this lady is going through. I'm sure she learned a lesson but it was a hard lesson learned. What we can all learn from this is never handle a firearm unless you have a safe area should a discharge occur.

    It happens. 275 million guns maybe 100 million handguns .... if this happens once a year, that's a one in a hundred million...

    I'm assuming this happens more than once a year ...

    I have shot maybe 100000-200000 rounds .... so I'm due !

    .22, .22 Long Rifle, .22 Long, .22 Magnum, 177-.22 (an old caliber) are all very capable of self defense. I'd be more concerned about getting shot by those than by anything larger. Less noise and odds are the bullet's still inside you.

    Registering gun owners to prevent crime, is like registering Jews to prevent a HOLOCAUST.
