Well, not really, but they are making the same argument Baldwin tried. The gun fires without pulling the trigger.

Apparently some of the MPD's guns have done just that and the police union is suing the city because they knew or should have known about the problem but did nothing about it.

wasn't Baldwins gun a revolver?
I think actually a single action revolver?
I believe you are correct. I also believe the FBI tested the gun and in their expert opinion, it could not go off without a trigger pull. It sounds like the Sigs that the MPD uses have a known problem.

Sig has been proactive on the issue and has a recall on the pistols . It's a well known thing and if an LEO hasn't gotten his gun modified , then I would think it's on them.

I'd say that's still on the department. They would need to arm the officers while their guns went in for service.

Agreed. It sounds like the department issues them and they were issued after the known defect. What I didn't see in the article, however, is whether anyone has been hurt by an errant discharge.

Yet many reports are out there that even the modded guns are having unintentional discharges.

At least one recently, one officer hit by another officer's round. I'm leary when multiple players are involved, it's hard enough to get the straight story when it's just one. I guess "glock leg" wasn't enough.

They could issue them Glocks as long as they made a rule against dancing while carrying them!

Was it the dancing or back flips?? Maybe a Glock vs Sig dance off.
