CHINO (CBSLA.com) — Three students were injured Wednesday after a weapon accidentally discharged during a safety presentation at an elementary school in Chino.

The incident took place at 11:40 a.m. at Newman Elementary School, which is located at 4150 Walnut Ave.

The Chino Police Department was giving a safety presentation for Red Ribbon Week when a firearm accidentally was discharged, police said.

No one suffered gunshot wounds but two students were transported to local hospitals with minor lacerations. A third student was assessed and released to his parents, according to officials.

No other details were immediately released.

OOPS. Not a good thing to happen during a "safety" demonstration at an elementary school. I'll bet one police officer is going to be chewed out for this.

I’m just shaking my head. This must give you lots of confidence in your local police force. I’ve lost a lot confidence in my local police force this past year, also.

This lack of confidence in police is what makes oppose the stop and frisk law in NYC. When you think about what we saw in that video of the motorcycle gang terrorizing the Asian family in the SUV, you know that the NYC police cannot be trusted with such power as the stop and frisk.

Headline: ...Weapon Discharges...

First mention: ...a weapon accidentally discharged...

Finally, on the third try: ...a firearm accidentally was discharged...

A weapon accidentally discharged, all by itself?

So, let me guess: the gun, of its own accord decided to load at least one round into the chamber. Then, the gun was just settin' there behaving and playing with itself and then "accidentally discharged."

Of course, there was no human involvement whatsoever.

This reminds me that I need to have a good talk with all of my guns, so the same thing doesn' happen to them.

Class we always assume the weapon is not loaded and the safe- (bam) ty is on.

Good thing Chino Hospital is across the street just a little bit further to the west.

One guy on here was talking about his guns down in the basement shooting themselves and raising hell. He had to go down there and take their ammunition away from them.

When I heard this story the first thought I had was, thank God the gun was in the hands of a “professional”! And then I was impressed that more children weren’t injured by the “professional”.

More info. According to anothe student, one student got access to a gun, pointed it to the ground and pulled the trigger. I guess there are a few red flags here. Why were the officers not watching it, let alone having a loaded gun near where a student could get to it?

Safety presentation huh? I am not saying this is one of those times, but I am so cynical of government, that I think sometimes these things are staged, to further gun control.

Is the USA losing its institutional memory, its basic competencies, or not?

Can’t win a war decisively since WWII?

Can’t do a school firearm safety demo without the gun going off?

Can’t implement computer systems?

Can’t pass a balanced budget?

This still works with my “professional” comment. The children should never had access to the gun and should not have been loaded. I bet this “professional” gets no more than a paid vacation and a written reprimand. If this happened in your home with your child and your gun you would be arrested, charged with child endangerment,violation of properly securing the firearm and ammunition, have your weapons confiscated and your child removed from your home by the government do gooders.

Don't tell me — it was one of the inmates from the CA Department of Corrections at Chino doing the “safety presentation” that dropped his “Roscoe”? Or, was it a cop named Dudley Doright?

This school is just over 3 miles from my house.

Should have sent somebody from Firearms Training Associates over there instead. They're over behind the Prado Dam. In over a decade of training, they've had one minor incident. They've trained thousands safely.

Somebody used a Glock and didn’t follow basic Eddie Eagle rules about clearing and demonstrating a firearm’s use.

I guess more details will emerge as to who really pulled the trigger. I will keep watching.

When I go on longer walks (7 miles or more) I do pass by this school.

There is no such thing as an accidental discharge.

A negligent discharge is caused by either ignorance or carelessness.

The person can be considered ignorant, if they have not been trained.

They are careless, if they disregard their training.

Always keep the gun pointed in a safe direction

Always keep your finger off the trigger until ready to shoot

Always keep the gun unloaded until ready to use

We've all seen that with electric typewriters: they "go-off" all by themselves.

Nope. And the week after that is the dog training presentation.

They could very easily be fired or suspended at the least.

The gun was on a police motorcycle and a student got a hold of it and pointed it toward the ground, pulled the trigger and the loaded gun did what most guns do when you pull the trigger. The student got scared at the loud noise, dropped the gun and ran into the field. That is what I have heard from later newscast based on student witnesses.

Well, as mentioned earlier, you could take the ammo away from the .357. Even if you only removed one wheel from the SUV, it would prevent it from going out and killing someone.

Either that or disconnect the ground from the battery.

Why was a loaded weapon unattended? What the kid was world class stupid, but as cop you gotta plan for that, especially if you were surrounded by elementary schoolers. Stupid, stupid, stupid.

Yes, and just to be safe, the justice department will be confiscating the grenade for, um, "redistribution".

Weapon was a rifle (uh oh it was an AR-15 and we know those have an “evil” disposition to them) mounted on the motorcycle that was part of the display. According to the police spokesperson there are several security measures in place (as to how the weapon in mounted) and several fail safes too.

The latest I heard it was an AR-15 attached to a motorcycle on display for the program. Yes someone should have been close by.

Security measures and failsafes all rendered moot by a 5th grader? something smells on that explanation. I'm also an instructor so I get paid to think about these things.
