  •  I have debated it a bit, myself. (6+ / 0-)

    Gun enthusiasts, of course, prefer we use the term "negligent discharge," which is sort of an outgrowth of the "guns don't kill people, people kill people" school of thought.

    But I've decided to stick with "accidental" because I find that when push comes to shove, and people actually have one of these incidents happen to them, then run back to the "accident" framing when it comes time to describe what happened to the police.

    Who am I to argue with them if they want to tell the police, newspaper reporters, etc. that they're a bunch of clowns who can't control their weapons?
