    Okay, I have no issues with an year in jail. But I do believe for some of those gun loving Americans, taking away their gun right would hurt more.

    So, we need good guys with guns to protect us from backflipping good guys with guns who protect us from bad guys with guns?

    What happened there? It don't look like he pulled the trigger (the video is blurry) plus the safety got knocked/switched off?

    Probably no safety, but maybe knocked off.

    Looks like when we went to grab it, he hit the trigger.

    Weird that it's basically impossible to find the actual raw video online, since everything is a wrapped up news station version. But there is sound on some.

    Could the safety have come off as it fell from his pants? I don't know anything about guns so don't know if that's actually possible.

    Glock pistols only come equipped with manual safeties for large agency purchases. The US Gov 3 letter agencies (and AFAIK, all US police agencies) are not among them. They have internal safeties and a trigger safety that render them drop safe, assuming that they haven't been beat to hell mechanically or tampered with.

    Continue your circular discussion.

    It's a freak accident. Glad nobody was killed. Victim himself has decided to not press any charges or cause any troubles for the FBI agent. So it's all up to the FBI to figure out for themselves how they can prevent future similar incidents.

    Oooh, oooh, I know! By not letting people wander around with firearms all day, including off-duty FBI agents?

    Makes sense. If you're off duty and having some fun... put the phone/gun/whatever else work related down and enjoy please! You can probably back flip better without a gun!
