That was no accident. That was negligent gun handling in public. He had no reason to pull it out.

I'm guessing this could have easily been avoided. It is indeed a sad tragedy.

It is tragic, but it's also tragic that people being interviewed are calling for gun control because of it.
Do we call for car control every time a pedestrian is hit by a car while crossing a sidewalk?

Very sad. There are some things that really should about never be pulled out in public.

Basically the same issues as when a drunk gets into a car and kills someone.
The guy will probably get some serious jail time.

Yes it is tragic. But the liberals have brainwashed a lot of people into believing that it's all the guns fault. And these sheep will believe this until something happens to them that having a gun for protection would have prevented. Then you see some minds changing quickly.

Well, they've not released whether alcohol was in his system yet (one presumes there was..).. He deserves significant jail time for this if there was. This is one reason I don't like pocket carry. Most of us are in and out of our pockets several times throughout the day.. so who knows why he pulled the gun out of his pocket.

When are people gonna learn..

Thoughts and prayers to the victim and her family.

Sounds like it wouldn't have happened had he kept it in his pants.

In many State one can legally carry where alcohol is sold as long as they abstain. If he had even one beer he is a dumb***. He's one anyway for several reasons, the biggest is pulling out his gun for no good reason.

The properly holstered and carried gun never comes out away from home unless for a valid reason, like defense.

Sad situation, and proper gun handling would have prevented it. This happened about 1.5 hours from where we live, and the man lives 20-30 minutes away. I'm glad he is being charged with a crime. Keep your gun holstered...simple as that. I'm waiting on the details to be released...wouldn't surprise me if he was intoxicated.

My thoughts and prayers go out to her family & friends.

It's no more the guns fault than it is the cars fault, in the aforementioned examples. It IS the person's fault. And flat out, some irresponsible people shouldn't have access to firearms, EVER. I don't know how you accomplish that though.

I'll say it once again, it's tragic.
But that said, there are millions of permit holders of all different backgrounds. Some are well trained, some aren't. And some carry while under the influence.
The bottom line is this is not the first time a permit holder killed an innocent person, and it won't be the last time.
Accidents happen. How many people die needlessly by malpractice every day? Does the media drive the public to ban surgeries?
Even good people can make horrible mistakes. We can't pass any legislation to prevent people from being human.

In CHL classes I've ALWAYS told the students that once you strap on the gun, LEAVE IT ALONE till you get home.

As many of you know a guy in a Arizona Wal-Mart (open carry) fiddled around with his gun and it went off in the store.

Well this guy in Georga will pay the price for messing around with it in public, and so will his family, and the family of the dead woman.
