    Re: For The Sixth Time In One Week, Man Shot At Gun Show

    Can't really say, since I've never been...

    ...but isn't someone getting shot just part of the "show"...?

     What good is a gun if you can't watch it in action and see how much damage it causes...?  

    (Just like a carpet-cleaning demonstration...which would make a great cross-marketing push...i.e., 'how to clean intruder's blood and brains off your new shag')

    Yes people have accidents. Guns are dangerous. How many people do you think cut off their fingers on a saw this past week.  How many people ran over someone in a car?

    These are all accidents with tools.

    There are several modifications that could and do make power saws safe, particluarly table saws.  The tool industry has thus far refrained from adding them as standard equipment, due to the added unit costs.

    Lots of wagging fingers (and rude salutations, natch) could be spared....

    3 times a day , someone gets hurt on Boston expressways.

     




    A lame attempt by Sailor Sally. He compares car accidents to shootings! lol

     

     



    you post was about poor handling of a controlled (object) gun. which can  be a danger to ones self. Idiots kill people with cars everyday. Prescription Drugs are more dangerous than guns.

     

     



    Funny that you mention that "Prescription Drugs are more dangerous than guns". At least you need a prescription to get those drugs. But anyone can buy a Bushmaster on-line or at a gun-nut show.

     

     




    You do know anyone can get prescription drugs without a prescription, right?

     

    I'm more worried about the nuts wacked out on meds than being shot. The over medicated drug addicts are more of a danger than Joe Shmo carring a gun.

     




    No you can't. You can't just walk into a pharmacy and get vicoden. You must have a prescription for it.

    You are worried about people whacked out nut jobs? Me too. The difference is that I would like to keep guns out of their hands.

    Upper middle class and upper class middle aged white males sure do beat a lot of people to death in their vicodin and valium induced rages.

     

     




    I'd bet the odds of you getting shot are a heck of a lot lower than your chances of being hit by a drunk driver, a distracted driver or an over medicated driver.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     




    Unless you own a gun. Then they are much higher.

    Heh.

    A low bar.  That covers pretty much everyone on the road.

    You mean like safety switch on a gun? Or transfer bars?

     



    Yes, indeed.

    Or child- and tamper-proof pill bottles.

    Would you agree then, your chances of being shot are much less than your chances of being hit by  a drunk driver?



    Yes.  Mainly because I drive up to 25,000 miles a year.  The odds dictate it.

     

    Now, if I were around or used guns often enough, the odds of being shot would also go up...wouldn't you agree...?

    I disagree.

     

    You can't just walk into a pharmacy and get vicoden. You must have a prescription for it.


    Obviously, but you can get them without a prescription. Pick up a local paper and check the police log.




    A)Disagree all you want. Facts don't lie.

    B)Are you suggesting that because people commit crimes that there should be no laws?

     A small risk of great harm is something worth considering.  Lots of other countries have far lower rates of getting shot than we do and they accomplish it by limiting access to the dangerous intrumentality that causes the harm.  Why should we accept such a risk of harm as "normal" when others do not?
