We haven't got all the information yet (and I doubt that we will EVER know all of the facts), but there are SO MANY things wrong with this incident already. http://www.foxnews.com/us/2012/11/21/gun-store-employee-accidentally-shoots-customer-in-back/?test=latestnews I have lived with guns from a VERY early age and I was immediately reprimanded any time that I 'made a mistake' handling a gun. It didn't feel good at the time to be embarassed, but now I thank my father, brother, cousins, uncles, etc. for that strict upbringing because I don't even have to think about gun safety. Every time I touch a gun, I check it immediately and make it safe if it is not already. The barrel is ALWAYS pointed in a safe direction even after I know the gun is unloaded. Bottom line: Gun safety rules must become AUTOMATIC HABITS for anyone handling firearms.
