Mall Security Guard Shoots Himself in the Hand

A recent news story out of Memphis reported that a mall security guard had accidentally shot himself in the hand while checking to see if his gun was loaded. The security officer was sitting in his patrol car at the time.  Security guards in Tennessee take additional training compared to unarmed security guards. People who want to be armed guards take firearm safety and handling courses.

This incident highlights the importance of proper firearm safety training and constant vigilance to those safety practices when you’re an armed security officer.
