The man was trying to store his handgun in the glove box when it fired, striking the student in the leg, police said.
Is that not against the law?
No such thing as an accidental discharge. Only negligent or intentional discharges.
A student reaches down and draws a weapon, and shoots the teacher. It happens that quickly. The teacher did not have time to react because it literally takes less than a second to pull a gun out and fire it. So question is, how would this armed teacher stop this from happening? Is it not a much more ideal solution to just install metal detectors in EVERY school?

The employee, who has not been identified, was going to give a student a ride home in his pickup about 4:30 p.m. The man was trying to store his handgun in the glove box when it fired, striking the student in the leg, police said.
Fact: Accidents do happen.
This could have been anyone, any parent, with a concealed weapons permit, putting the gun in the glove compartment, at any location.
