This is like the “expose” on CNBC about the Remington 700 rifle that supposedly is defective. That lady shot her kid with one.

While incredibly tragic and even if the gun was defective, what was she doing pointing the rifle at her kid?

We were always taught that a gun is a mechanical device and all mechanical devices can fail. Keep the firearm pointed in a safe direction no matter what.

The problem with the Remington 700s was that the triggers had been adjusted to about 3 ounces of pull and would go off with little urging.

Operator error.

Nuh-uhh! A fellow Freeper swears that my Glock can’t go off accidently. I’m gonna go try throwing it at a brick wall; just to be sure. /sarc
