I share your enthusiasm for grammar accuracy and I hear your complaint loud and clear! As you say, prepositions don't always make sense and come about due to common application that then become the rule. The English language is known to be riddled with contradictions and inconsistency! Not to mention, exceptions to the rules ;)

I don't believe it's the author's intention to chastise - more to frankly emphasize what is and isn't in use in the instance of the phrase 'by accident.'

Finally - you've got me thinking...perhaps the difference in prepositions is due to the active or passive nature of the words accident and purpose. 'On' purpose is an active act and intentional. 'By' accident is a passive act and unintended.

This could also make sense with the phrases: 'On the road,' and 'By the wayside'.

What do you think?

This is correct. I've also replaced the common noun to 'ticket' - much friendlier than guns ;) Thanks for spotting this!
