What is Considered Gun Negligence?
Because of the dangers firearms can pose, those who own them or use them in the line of duty should be held to a higher standard of responsibility and care for those around them. It is considered criminal negligence to threaten someone with a firearm, but negligent gun use can also lead to personal injury and wrongful death claims as well.
Examples of gun negligence include:
- Leaving loaded firearms in vehicles, homes, and storage.
- Failing to safely store firearms and prevent access by unauthorized users and children.
- Failing to install trigger locks on all stored firearms.
- Failing to ensure a weapon is unloaded before cleaning or handling.
- Failing to assure the firearm’s safety is on at all times until ready to fire at a lawful target.
