Because that is what Fred Petersen, 66 local firearms instructor did! Yep another teacher doesn’t follow the rules of gun control. He just got done cleaning his gun and holstered it when his wife asked if it was possible to pull the trigger. In the process of drawing the hammer back the gun discharged (can only assume he let the hammer go) shooting himself in the hand.
"The gun was pointed in a safe direction,” Petersen said Monday, “but my finger was not in a good spot.”
