Deputy in town for firearms training accidentally fires weapon...

..And From A Semi-Automatic Revolver, Too!

LEWISTON, Idaho - There were some anxious moments late Monday afternoon, as police responded to a frantic call from a desk clerk of shots fired at the Inn America on 21st Street.

It turns out, it was an errant shot from a revolver fired by a Bonner County deputy who's in town for firearms training.

Lewiston Police Captain Roger Lanier said the deputy was in his room practicing what are called dry firearm drills, but had not made sure the gun was unloaded. 

The .40 caliber Glock Model 22 semi-automatic went off. The bullet went through a mirror, the wall and lodged in the wall of an adjacent room.

Lanier said no one else was in the deputy's room. He said Lewiston Police conducted an investigation and determined the accident was not reckless discharge of a firearm, which is a crime. 

Okay then. Biggest douche?

The idiot Capitan of Policia for determining that shooting your automatic revolver into the wall and endangering the life of the adjoining room's occupant is NOT reckless...

The idiot deputy who negligently discharged his automatic revolver...

The idiot who wrote the story, and didn't have enough journalistic acumen to determine that a semi-automatic pistol is NOT A REVOLVER...

Decisions, decisions.

Thanks to The War on Guns for the link.

It makes no difference who's the bigger douche here. Each one is big enough to drown you.
