  •  seems to me a lot of dropped guns.... (5+ / 0-)

    ...discharge.  Too bad it is really hard to sue gun makers for poor design.

    We Glory in war, in the shedding of human blood. What fools we are.

    •  Or is it poor bullet design, or poor bullet (0+ / 0-)

      quality?

      It's well known that explosive materials confined to a small space can explode without a spark.

      With dropped guns do we have explosive risk due to spark?
      Or explosive risk due to small movement of the bullet contacting the firing pin?

    •  Most likely lies (0+ / 0-)

      When I hear that a gun fired when dropped, I am pretty sure that isn't true.  If a gun fires, somebody pulled the trigger.   People lie trying to protect themselves after doing something stupid or evil.  Modern handguns just don't go off accidentally...somebody pulled a trigger.
