For starters, this not an accidental discharge. It is a negligent discharge. This leader was negligent on several levels.
- The weapon should have been cleared off the range. This means the range OIC, NCOIC, and safeties also failed to fulfill their responsibilities.
- There is a weapons clearing barrel outside most buildings. It is a requirement to clear your weapon before you enter a building.
Techniques for resolution vary according to the unit, but I’ve seen a variety of different disciplinary actions in the past. In combat arms units, the leader is usually relieved of their leadership position and given a relief for cause evaluation.
