    It may be a pedantic point, but any well-designed moerdn firearm is not going to discharge unless the trigger is pulled; that doesn’t mean there aren’t any number of stupid ways to unintentionally pull the trigger, but it does mean that the gun doesn’t simply “go off” on its own. It goes off because the trigger was pulled.Actually, we have no way of knowing that, do we? Which consumer protection agency sort of entity has the data on testing, what are the testing protocols, what independent agency designates guns as safe and keeps track of incidents and issues recalls, etc?
