Authorities say the man had a permit to carry a concealed firearm. The man told officers the gun fell from his pocket Tuesday night as he was adjusting himself in the seat and that it discharged when it dropped to the floor.
sorry this doesn't sound like carelessness to me
How is it not careless to allow your gun to fall from your pocket?
I already referred to it as "irresponsible." It is absolutely, entirely careless to allow a gun to fall out of your pocket while "adjusting yourself."
Oh- and if you're referring to the drop as not being the careless part- I also think it's careless to carry a gun that's not safe from discharge resulting from a drop.
