    Many of them have been touched on already. We wouldn't run a drill like this even in the military, precisely because of the many ways it could go horribly wrong.

    If it weren't for Daily Kos, the Sierra Club and a small handful of others, I might have no choice but to assume the entire country had gone irrecoverably insane. So, thanks for that. :-)

      The more you know about guns, the more horrifying this incident is.

      Good firearms training gets people more used to correctly handled guns and more shocked and alarmed at carelessness.

      This is too much like some of the horror stories my instructors gave their classes, except it's even worse.
