"SALT LAKE CITY • A Utah elementary school teacher who was carrying a concealed firearm at work accidentally shot herself in the leg when the weapon discharged in a faculty bathroom shortly before class Thursday morning, officials said.

Granite School District spokesman Ben Horsley said the teacher at Westbrook Elementary School, in the Salt Lake City suburb of Taylorsville, was severely injured when the bullet entered and exited her leg, and she was rushed to a hospital.

No other faculty or students were in the area, he said.

Officials are still investigating how the gun discharged."

Well, first of all the teacher couldn't have "accidentally shot herself in the leg" if the firearm mysteriously discharged on it's own. There has to be a booger hook involved for her to "shoot" anything. "Severely injured" is normally the result of a firearm projectile entering and leaving one's body, by whatever means. I do, however, await the results of the investigation with piqued curiosity. Pax...

See, the firing pin or hammer struck the primer and the primer ignited the propellant, then the bullet came out.

Or going back further, billions and billions of years ago, gas compacted upon itself to form stars and whatnot, ....

One must have compassion to understand the concept of religion and god. I'll leave it at that. Something tells me that rules out some here.

Now on topic. Since we know very little, it may have been any object (including a finger) that caused the trigger to travel backwards. Remember, many women like to dig around in their purses while in the potty. Some even carry their pistols their, I'm told by my Mrs. Without the proper holster there's plenty of items in a purse that could potentially get into the trigger guard (assuming the pistol is not a derringer).
:eek:

Of course this is all speculation. We just don't know enough at this point. Training is the key, looks like she may not have gotten enough?
