Default Bang! At Work

I work at a credit union and Tuesday morning we heard a very load bang. Myself and others thought it was a gun shot but others didn't think so. I was considering an escape route if needed. I also wished I was armed. I work on the 2nd floor and was able to see down into the atrium; our security guards and a few other employee's were standing around talking. Within a couple of minutes several police car's arrived. We started hearing rumors what the noise was but nothing from management. I went down to the security desk after things calmed down and asked the guard what all the commotion was. It turns out his partner was loading his gun and accidentally fired a round into the desk. I don't think we will be seeing that guard anymore. It's too bad because he was a really nice young man but he screwed up big time.

He screwed up big time is an understatement. Why was he loading the gun inside the bank? Shouldnt he be dressed and ready to "secure" the place when he gets there?

If you accident shoot a firearm, you shouldn't be trusted with a firearm.

Maybe he is a very nice young man, but obviously inexperienced with a firearm and probably should not have a job where he is required to have a loaded firearm ready to defend property and life. He is lucky that the round was stopped by the desk and not someones kid. Also why was he loading his firearm while after he is on duty in a open area at the security desk which I am assuming is in the front of the building where everyone is visible and very limited backstops if a round accidentally discharges?

I beleive Some places have their security guards is guns owned by the company, that stay at the place of business.

Sucks to be him but an ad can happen to anyone. That's why having muzzle control is so important.

Only happens to people who can't keep their finger off the trigger.

He was loading his gun, and accidently fired a round into his desk? I'm having a little trouble understanding that. Sounds like he had his gun ready to rock and the excitement of stopping an old lady stealing mints got over his head and blew it

Why would you wish to be armed and planning your escape? if someone was going to rob the bank just let them. "your" money is insured and protected. With modern cameras that are in a bank there is a 95% chance of them getting caught so let the professionals handle things Charlie Bronson before you get your own death wish.

I disagree. It can happen for a lot of reasons. My one and only AD was when I was about 16. At that time I was shooting about 500 a week for practice and competitions every Saturday and most Sundays. I was putting the hammer down on my Henry Golden Boy after not getting the shot I wanted at a wood chuck. Needless to say I almost puked. It can happen for a lot of reasons. Not always the fault of the operator. That's why it's called "accidental".

LOL not the fault of the operator? So its the gun's fault? So do you believe that people don't shoot others, its the gun's fault. Accidental, meaning it wasn't intended to happen, but the operator fucked up and it did. Please unload your weapons and lock them up. I don't want them going off accidentally.

There's no such thing as an Accidental Discharge.

Only Negligent Discharge.

If there is a possible gun shot in your place of employment why the hell wouldn't you wish you were armed and thinking about an escape. Just because you are armed does not mean you have to use it but if you need it you can. As far as an escape plan, again just because you have a plan doesn't mean you have to use it but having a plan and using it is better than the opposite. I agree that if it was a robbery the main goal of the crook is to get money and get out but if they decide to take hostages it is good to have a plan.
It is a shame that someone trusted with protecting lives could have inadvertently taken a life.
