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

     


    The rightwing gun-nuts are making the case for stricter gun control all by themselves.......lol

    Gun activists designated last Saturday “Gun Appreciation Day” 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 “showing off a .25 caliber pistol he thought was unloaded when he slid the action of the gun.” 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 dealer’s table.

    In 2012, 532 people were murdered in the city of Chicago. The leftwing gun grabbers are ignoring the best evidence that strict gun control laws dont work!

    You are missing the point. Comparing a gun show..which is a controlled environment...to crimes committed with illegal guns is not really intellectually honest.

     

    If the experts at the gun shows can't even keep themselves safe..then that goes to show just how far astray the NRA has gone. In their zest for profits..they've sacrificed gun safety.

    Let me get this right.


    If someone at a car show runs over someone cus the brakes fail, or they forgot to take their foot of the gas pedal,  then all cars should be taken away?

    If someone at a race track, dies. All cars should be taken off the track?

     

    Don't even tell me it's apples to oranges. Because it isn't!

    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?

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.

    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..

    No, no - with the shooting range you're participating in the action.  You're not just a passenger in the car - you're driving it.  I'd say it's a bad idea to let a five-year-old drive a car or shoot a gun.  But I'm sure the NRA would disagree.

    You are missing the point. Comparing a gun show..which is a controlled environment...to crimes committed with illegal guns is not really intellectually honest.

     

     

    If the experts at the gun shows can't even keep themselves safe..then that goes to show just how far astray the NRA has gone. In their zest for profits..they've sacrificed gun safety.

     



    Who said the people at gun shows are "experts"? "Experts" at what?

     

    Handling a firearm correctly comes down to one thing and only one thing.....common sense. Unfortunately most people don't have common sense. Nor can common sense be taught or regulated.

     

     



    I learned a lot in the Hunter Safety Course when I was 12, that I still remember.  

     

    But if common sense is all that's needed, well, there ya go.

    We have requirements in terms of classes and test taking for driving a car. People have to show a skill level before they can use the instrumentality.  "Common sense" can be taught through such experience.  But no such requirements for guns.   A car is a tool for transportation. A gun is a tool for killing.  This makes no sense at all.

    ...

    I took the firearms safety course. All common sense stuff. Don't point gun at someone. Always assume gun is loaded. Keep finger off trigger until ready to shoot. Duh!


    There ya go.  Pretty difficult to argue with these two posts.  In fact, maybe no one but you needs to be in this debate.
