LA Times: One sheriff's deputy shot himself in the leg while pulling out his gun to confront a suspect. Another accidentally fired a bullet in a restroom stall.

From National Journal, here is yet another potentially problematic feature of firearms that needs to be regulated.
It will also be tricky to determine just how many automatic bullets should be allowed in a rapid-fire magazine clip. Three? Ten? Twenty? Democrats in favor of restricting high-capacity magazines say that three bullets is enough to kill a duck or a quail.

I’ll tell you how. We firearms owners stipulate that automatic bullets in rapid-fire magazine clips won’t be tolerated. Now that I’ve compromised and met my detractors in the middle, be warned and walk with caution.
I won’t tolerate any more challenges to or infringements upon my second amendment rights and God-given duty of self defense. And just to let you know that I’m serious, remember that I have guns and I’m willing to use them. No, seriously. I’m willing to use them to make sure this doesn’t happen.
