The bullet went through a table before it hit Frauman, said Kristy-Lee Lawley, the church’s communications director. She said Frauman, a member of the church, was “recovering well” and the bullet didn’t break any bones.
The NRA has a rule against bringing ammunition into a class, said Tom Wagner, a NRA instructor in Orlando who was not involved in Saturday’s shooting. He said the association has “no problem yanking a certification if the rules are being broken.
I’m glad to hear that guy will no longer be instructing. There is no room for error when it comes to safety with firearms.
Once again… If the four BASIC rules of gun safety mentioned in my previous post would have been followed, this would never have happened.

If there is one person that cringes every time an incident like this surfaces in the news it would definitely be Lee Paige. Paige was making a “drug education presentation” in April 2004 to a group of kids in Florida when he put a round from his .40 caliber Glock through his foot (or leg according to different press coverage).
“I’m the only one in this room professional enough, that I know of, to carry this Glock .40”
Those words, and the couple of seconds following them, will live forever on the internet.
Check out the video below:
I don’t agree with incidents like these being called “Accidental discharges” (AD). When it is human error that causes them the correct term is “Negligent Discharge” (ND).
Too bad there wasn’t a video of the NRA instructor shooting the student. That way he could try and sue the NRA for embarrassing him :roll: like Lee Paige tried on the DEA.
