Negligent Discharge in Virginia = Class 1 Misdemeanor

I talk about this in my legal seminars, but you don't hear about too many of these incidents. A guy dropped his Glock, tried to catch it while it was falling, and caused a Negligent Discharge (ND). (H/T Uncle)

The posting at is already at eight pages of discussion, but the bottom line is that if you put a round through your wall and it goes through the next three townhouses, expect the law to get involved. Also, Glocks have internal safeties that prevent a discharge upon impact with the floor. Let it drop.
