Why Only Police Should Have Guns--Cop Shoots His Finger Off

The Daily Mail reports that a Kentucky police officer shot his finger off, after being handed a loaded gun at a gun store, cocking the trigger, and pulling it. (Video at the link).

You will notice that the officer did not check to see whether the firearm was loaded, did not maintain muzzle control or treat the gun as loaded (one of the basic rules of firearms safety), and actually worked the action that led to a round being chambered. That the slide didn't lock back on an empty magazine should have warned him....
