There is probably a better term for an AD than accident.

Also, I heard that video was staged to further make the point of how easy NDs can happen, and that the round was a blank.

Nevermind, he actually shot himself.
please explain how any firearm can accidently fire without someone pulling the trigger? what mechanical failure can cause that to happen?

I have no doubt that Glocks are well built and do exactly what they are designed to do in an efficient and reliable manner.

I still can't stand them. When the Gen 4's came out, I thought maybe they've changed. I'll go check one out. I couldn't put that block down fast enough. Just awful feeling.

that seems to be the overall consensus of those who do own a polymer pistol, but it not being a Glock is the ergonomics of the Glock being the biggest fault. blocky feeling or wrong grip angle seem to be the most mentioned.

Perhaps if you have a gun with a hammer that you have made no modifications to, and you have the hammer cocked back and a mechanism that holds the hammer inplace snaps and causes an AD. I don't know much about the inner working of guns however.

still won't fire unless the trigger is pulled. cock the hammer back on any firearm and lay it down on a table and come back in 100 years and unless someone has pulled the trigger, that firearm will never have fired.

can firearms malfunction? yes they can. but someone still has to be handling them for it to fire even if there is mechanical malfunction.

case point. some bolt action rifles can fire if the trigger is improperly adjusted when the bolt is closed, without touching the trigger. but without human involvement, regardless of the malfunction, that rifle will not fire on it's own.

You missed the point... something snaps inside the gun that holds back the hammer and the hammers shoots forward firing the gun, no human required.

who pulled the hammer back? it can't or won't pull itself back unless a human being pulls it back. yes it has a malfunction, but still will not fire on it's own without human involvement. a malfuctioning firearm can be unsafe or operater incorrectly but will still never fire by itself.
