The rightwing gun-nuts are making the case for stricter gun control all by themselves.......lol
Gun activists designated last Saturday âÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂGun Appreciation DayâÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂ in an attempt to highlight their opposition to gun safety laws. The PR stunt proved to be more of an embarrassment, however, when 5 people were shot at 3 different gun shows on Gun Appreciation Day. On Friday afternoon, an Iowa gun dealer closed out the week by becoming the sixth person shot at a gun show. The man claims he was âÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂshowing off a .25 caliber pistol he thought was unloaded when he slid the action of the gun.âÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂ The gun was not unloaded, and a bullet went through his left palm.
After this incident, police found a second loaded weapon on the wounded gun dealerâÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂs table.
Funny. I've never shot myself or anyone else at a gun show.
So, tell me why my rights should be infringed?
I've been to many shows never have I ever witnessed anything like that story. I've been to shooting ranges since the age of 5, never have I ever witnessed any accidents.
In fact, I have witnessed three car accidents in the last week. One was a drunk driver.
Is it responsible to bring a five-year-old to a shooting range? Did your folks let you drive there?
Is it responsible to have a five-year old in a car and not in a car seat?
In my case, safety always came first.
In the case of a parent not putting a child in a car seat, safety is not an issue..
