    They are saying it’s an accident. You don’t accidently pull the trigger OE accidently take your gun off safe..

    The poor guy will be court martialed for involuntary manslaughter if he was goofing off. Goodbye career and life after that. I was lucky not to encounter any situations like that during my time.
