AP, via TPM:

HIGHLAND, N.Y. (AP) — A New York town that began assigning an armed police officer to guard a high school in the wake of the Connecticut massacre has suspended the program after an officer accidentally discharged his pistol in a hallway while classes were in session.

[...]

There were no staff members or students nearby when the weapon went off just after 1:30 p.m. Tuesday. Nobody was hurt.

The solution is, of course, more guns. If that guy had a series of sentry guns trained on him throughout the building, he would not have made this mistake.

Well, he wouldn’t make the same mistake *twice*.

Are we less dumb yet?

    I need to find a reason to use “accidental discharge” as a title for something, immediately.
