    Clay deputy's son, 2, accidentally fires father's gun inside Wendy's;

    The 2-year-old son of a Clay County sheriff’s deputy was struck in the foot by a shattered bullet fragment and sustained minor injuries when his father’s personal handgun accidentally discharged into the floor of a Middleburg fast food restaurant where the family stopped for lunch.

    The OP asks a question, directed towards the FL members. You Mid-Atlantic folk should wait and learn...or not.

    Another concealed pocket carry idiot. He not only carried unsafely, he allowed his son to stick his hand in his pocket. What a dufus!

    Obviously I don't have all the facts on this, just what I've read but what a cluster.

    A pocket carry Kel-Tec, most probably no holster (too uncool for that) and your kid reaching in your pocket.

    What could possibly go wrong?

    I could add a bit more but I'll be civil for the time being.

    I am trying to figure how a 2 year old could manage to get his hand far enough in the pocket of a adult. A tall 2 year old and a very short cop?

    The only thing I can come up with he was wearing those tactical britches with the low pockets.

    There's something fishy about this...

    There's something fishy about this story.

    How tall was the father? How tall was the two year old?

    I carry a KelTec .32. Not much different from a KelTec .380. The trigger pull is pretty stiff, and at the angle the 2 year old would be reaching, or attempting to reach, into his father's pocket would make it very difficult to pull the trigger.

    The toddler would have to reach up and then down into the father's pants (picture yourself reaching above your own head and then down into a bucket or something like that) unless the father was holding his son. And even then, the kid would have to lean down, and the father would feel his son's hand in his pocket LONG before the kid could get a grip strong enough on the pistol to pull the trigger.

    I think the cop had his hand in his pocket fiddling with his pistol and is blaming his son for something he did.

    My X-OL carried/may still carry a P-32 that I fluffed and buffed and lapped and lubricated trying to smooth and ease the trigger pull. No child pulled that trigger to fire.

    Similar to my house gun through my daughter's childhood - no child can toggle a Luger to strip a round from the magazine.

    I suspect the tot's hand wasn't IN the daddy's pocket at all.... just fingering the outside of the pocket and happened to make the right grip to fire the gun all from the outside of the pocket!

    With a snapcap in the gun (if you have one) try that. I guarantee you (having had a Kel-tec at one time) it's impossible, unless you're wearing flimsy dress pants and an adult does it. The K-T has a 10lb trigger pull.

    What would the charge be, given that he is presumed innocent of any crime?

    Good question. Sounds like someone would have to charge a 2 year old lol
