“An off-duty Kansas City police officer suffered a slight foot wound Wednesday when his service weapon inadvertently discharged,” kansascity.com reports. “Kansas City police said the officer had stopped by a credit union in the 8500 block of Bannister Road and was visiting outside with another officer when the accident occurred. The injury was described as a graze wound and did not require a trip to the emergency room. No one else was injured.” You see how corrosive these passively constructed ND stories are? Not only . . .
do they absolve the shooter from any responsibility, they make it seem like guns are really, really dangerous in and of themselves. They play into the antis’ relentless refrain that you’re safer without a gun than with one.
So no, not enough said. What was the officer’s name? What disciplinary action will his superiors take? Desk jobs for both officers until retraining is complete? Oh sorry. Got carried a little carried away there . . . [h/t PM]
