That's why you make damn sure to not point the barrel at anyone.

Sigh so sad.  Why must some parents be so dumb?

 I thought the first rule was checking to make sure it was unloaded. What a stupid and tragic event.

And why must those parents be allowed to have guns? I say we make it more like Japan (Not with the extreme limitations on guns) but with making it so people have to pass a written test. Get a background check, and a safe that seperates their ammo from their weapons.

Because these "accidents" seem to happen a lot more than they should.

If they enforced bank regulations like they do park rules, we wouldn't be in this mess

B-b-b-but if I have to keep my ammo in a separate place, then it kinda negates the whole "self-protection" racketeering the gun huggers & especially traffickers have going on: can't blow away that rapist intruder if my Glock isn't locked & loaded!!!

Do guns fire without the trigger being pulled?

My grandpa is a retired game warden and my father taught hunter safety, so I was raised learning about gun safety. My dad taught us to ALWAYS treat a gun as if it were loaded.
