one would think, that people would have enough sense to empty their weapons before storing them, not before carrying them to a gun show. its people like this, that make safe gun owners all over the country look bad. With that being said, accidents happen, if it wern't for the major gun debate going on right now, this would never have even made it past local news. The fact it made CNN just shows their obvious agenda.

Weapons brought to the gun shows should be checked at the entrance of the parking lot before getting into a crowed tent / building. I think that the administration will soon shut down gun shows and this would give them reason in the public eye.

Yep...

Probably ought to take away guns from the military...any idea how many accidental discharges happen throughout the US military forces in a year? :crazy:

I remember when I was a lowly E-4 that we had a SSG giving us a weapons safety class during deployment to the Sinai...shot himself in the foot with an M-16 (said it was a demonstration of what not to do :duh: ).

Obviously we need to take guns from these soldiers who obviously can't handle 'em safely.....after all, they might KILL somebody... :madgrin:

They are, where im at, theyre always checked at the entrance. Even if you have a carry weapon that you dont intend to sell, they make you check it and clear the chamber.

According to the media, a lot of people who never owned guns before are buying them off the shelves faster than they can be put out.

It will take a while to train them all.

It happened here in Indy, too. It was a guy who bought a gun, went outside, cut off the trigger guard and shot his finger as he tried to load the thing. There were police officers checking weapons to make sure that they were unloaded going in, but what can you do about somebody who isn't knowledgeable enough about firearms not to shoot themselves while loading it?

In Canada you are required to go through gun safety and understand how the gun operates before you are allowed to purchase one.

You can't stop stupid, but you can teach people.

Before you buy a fork are you required to go to an obesity class? Just wondering.

If you want to eat yourself to death it's not a problem. But no one is going to walk into a school and force feed children to death.....

Here in America people let their children eat themselves into diabetes all the time. It kills children and It's an epidemic. The Left calls it child abuse. I'm wondering when we're going to regulate dangerous forks is all.

Hey don't talk to me, I'm on a bit of a diet. The older one gets the less thing seem to want to stay in place, especially around the middle. Sigh......

Have you seen any Politicians stand up in the halls of Congress or the White House with a bunch of kids and demagogue the issue to advance the restricting of Liberty though.

You see, God even allows people to be stupid in their Liberty. It's part of the package.
