DEA Annoyed By Internet Exposure of Agent That Shot Himself

The DEA agent that I referred to in “The Three Rules of Safe Firearms Handling” was an undercover agent, and the DEA is annoyed because his face has been shown to everyone on the Internet. No mention is made of his behavior in front of a class of Orlando Fourth Graders that endangered their lives.

An investigation has been launched to determine who leaked the home video of the undercover DEA agent shooting himself at an event sponsored by the Orlando Minority Youth Golf Association.
“It puts a lot of undercover agents in jeopardy if their faces are videotaped,” the masked agent told Local 6 News. “His identity is burned. His identity is known as a police officer and its a potential personal safety hazard to himself as well as his family members.”

Speaking of potential safety hazards, how about his actions in front of this class?

“This is a Glock 40,” the agent said on the tape. “Fifty Cent, Too Short, all of them talk about a Glock 40, OK?,” he said. “I'm the only one in this room professional enough that I know of to carry this Glock 40.”
Seconds later, the agent shot himself in the foot.

I'm surprised the Federal Government allows this person to continue to carry a gun in public, personally.

I saw that video. Hilarouse stuff. He starts out showing that the gun is a blank by pulling the trigger a few times. Then he dropped the thing. I loved the part when he asks a woman to show another gun to the class after he shot himself and continued. The whole class was telling her to put it back. I was cracking up.

Anyone have a URL for the video? Or would some kind soul please email it to me?

All of the reads I've seen mention that the gun fired when the slide disengaged. But if look again, he closed the slide out in front of him, then it looks like he was going to holster the gun in his pants, but pulled the trigger by accident. What I'm getting at is HE ACTUALLY PULLED THE TRIGGER!
Just before he showed the witness the gun, He pulled the slide back to show that the chamber was empty. What he didn't do was remove the clip. When he released the slide out in front of everyone, he engaged a live round into the chamber from the loaded clip.
