    I agree with what you said Lucian, but what has that got to do with the article?

    The police officer shot himself by accident, which is most unfortunate and I hope he has a speedy recovery, but that would seem to indicate that he's not entirely to be trusted with a firearm. If he can shoot himself by accident then he might shoot someone else by accident too.

    sorry, we did not realize the cop shot himself. accidents will happen, especially when the safety catch is left off the firearm.

    Guess we're all luck and it was not a machine gun on auto mode.

    It's a bit worrying though isn't it that a police officer is entrusted with a fiream when he can't even avoid shooting himself?

    I agree with what you said about heavier sentences for people who kill police officers. A lot of people don't think so because they say the life of a police officer is not worth more than the life of anyone else, but I think that the upholders of the law should have more protection because they are more exposed to this sort of thing and if criminals get away with crimes against the police then that implies there is no respect for the law.

    I know it's not quite the same as shooting yourself in the leg with a firearm, but it's also incredibly easy to shoot yourself in the leg with a nail gun

    I've seen loads of nails sticking out of legs and arms because they just haven't been paying attention whilst stood around yapping.

    This is a case of badly reported news that wasn't.

    Um, not really, except that's what Lucian said. Could you elaborate a bit?
