In an interview with CBS News Correspondent Jim Stewart, Sheriff T. Larsen of Medicine Horse, Mont. talks about when his Remington Model 700 went off. The following is a full transcript of the interview.

Sheriff T. Larsen: "Took it off safety and the gun discharged; without my finger on the trigger."

Larsen: "It isn’t supposed to do that. I think it should be corrected by the company."

Larsen: "The safety is a bad safety and it should be fixed and information should be put out so that everybody that owns a Remington 700 should know the dangers of the gun."

Larsen: " People can die from it and people can get hurt too."
