Latest News from Kentucky

I'm not sure where it would be appropriate to put this, but "training" sounds about right. This was on the front page of the Lexington Herald-Leader yesterday morning:

"FRANKFORT — State Rep. Leslie Combs, D-Pikeville, "accidentally" discharged a pistol Tuesday in her legislative office in the Capitol Annex.

Combs said in a statement Wednesday that nobody was hurt and that she was following "standard safety procedures when the accident occurred."

Read more here: "

Just one small part of it makes me wonder: Does anyone know exactly what "standard safety procedures" would lead to accidentally discharging a firearm in your office? I can't recall ever having been taught that one.

(Note to staff: if you feel this is not an appropriate post, please feel free to delete it - I don't mean any offense by it)
