    this is what people are afraid of. They are more afraid that someone having an ND like this than an active shooter.

    If there was an active shooter they would not announce "this incident is in strict violation of our policy on no active shooters"

    secure your sh*t

    I heard his speel. I had a real hard time (choking on a late sandwich) listening. The plot was thick as molasses.

    I had an acquaintance who was of the belief that the Navy would let him back in after they booted his bubblegum into civvy world. He carried a cocked and locked Tarus PT 92, in a bag, which he dropped twice and which, true to form, discharged twice (no witnesses). What was especially disturbing is that he thought this was 'cool' and assumed I would think it was 'cool' as well. Like I said, he was an acquaintance, he now works for a Police Department near you o_O

    yeup. There are still some folks out there that think their new striker safety-less pistol is totally safe because... "safe action" or whatever means they can throw it in a bag or under pillow. "look, it has a trigger safety. It cant go off unless your finger is on the trigger..."

    Absolutely 100 percent right! People mistake common sense for engineering. " But it shouldn't do that"?!?!?!

    Newbie here...but:

    Maybe don't carry in a backpack with one in the chamber?

    I figure if it's that inaccessible, condition 1 is less important.

    -We just had a long thread recently in regards to carry at hospitals...

    no doubt that pack/bag carry has buex coups downside. I was sitting in the Gresham BiMart on Sunday when a Husband/Wife team walked by w' a Coyote Sling bag. One zippered compartment was slightly open and there was a bandana sticking out...sorta like a flag that there was a pistol under that bandana.....

    No kidding? I too saw Husband/Wife where the man had a tactical purse at my BiMart.

    I agree with the points that bolus and Camelfilter made.
