A state appeals court reinstated a lawsuit against Glock filed by a paralyzed Los Angeles Police Department officer who claims the pistol didn't have adequate safeguards.

Enrique Chavez was paralyzed from the waist down after his 3-year-old son shot him with his G21 service pistol.

Chavez claimed the accidental discharge occurred because the pistol had a light trigger pull and did not have a grip safety that the shooter must deactivate before firing, reports the San Francisco Chronicle.
