I agree with this discharge law needing to be changed as well. People run red lights every day which is far more likely to kill people than a negligent discharge. Even a DUI is a misdemeanor unless it meets certain criteria for a felony and running a red light is merely a civil violation. If the discharge is truely accidental and nobody is hurt, it should be a civil violation--not even a misdemeanor. I don't encourage reckless behavior but accidents happen. We don't arrest people for getting in fender benders so why should someone who accidently discharges a firearm be facing time in prison? On the other hand and I'm sure most of us agree that if a person is knowingly acting recklessly with a firearm then they should be charged with criminal endangerment charges. Whether or not that wouldbe a felony or a misdemeanor should depend on the severety of the recklessness.
