Common sense and experience?

In a country that needs to put a warning label on hair dryers saying "do not use while sleeping"? and on irons saying "do not iron clothes while wearing them"?

You're kidding yourself if you think the majority of gun owners have common sense and experience...Sadly, they don't...They should be, but they aren't...

Okay, that's a low blow


I just wish I could argue it with anything that I could keep a straight face for. You're right and that hurts the most.

guns are legal and carrying them is fine, i see no reason to get uptight about this. i dont see people with guns everyday, but if i did, i wouldn't be concerned - i dont start trouble wit them, they won't start trouble with me. live and let live. guns are fine to walk around with, i feel safer when people are armed.

This just fell in my lap...

Three people injured after 12-gauge shotgun goes off at NC gun show

Seriously, the experience and common sense argument is a poor one when muppets like this ruin it for the rest of the actual respectful gun owners.

Please take some time to step back and take a breath.

You just insulted me, and a lot of other gun owners on our intelligence. Something that no one here that I've seen do to you.

While I agree that if one looks around, you might have to question the majority of people's intelligence, please do NOT confuse wording placed on a product to help protect a company that is worried about being sued by it's customers, especially in this day and age of "let us sue everyone we can to make money, over any and everything we can", as having anything to do with gun owner's intelligence.

I've seen guys that wear their pants like this:



And thought of how stupid they are........which is entirely baseless to do.

So please step back, and stop judging people based on something, especially when it:

1) has nothing to do with guns.
2) is something that companies do to protect themselves.

Try to have at least a little bit of optimism for your fellow human. If you can't, that's just sad.

I give everyone the benefit of the doubt.

Even you.

And that's the problem, deciding who is a "criminal"

Who is the criminal in this instance:


The two men drove next to the girls, trying to question them about the crimes, thinking they might be involved. Their vehicle matched the description of a car used in the earlier burglaries.


Reginald Campos was arrested for attempted murder by the Salt Lake County Sheriff's Office.
The girls got into the car and drove away, but Serbeck and the HOA president followed. Police say they never identified themselves as members of neighborhood watch.

"The SUV does some funny maneuvers with the car, gets behind them, starts following them. This freaks them out because they think the older men are stalking them," said Salt Lake County Sheriff's Lt. Don Hutson.

The girls became upset and of them called her father, 43-year-old Reginald Campos, and said the men were stalking them.

When the girls arrived home, Campos sent three of the girls inside and he and his daughter went looking for the two men and found them in an SUV a few blocks away.

Lt. Don Hutson said, "They both got out of the vehicle. They were both armed with handguns ... words were exchanged, there was a verbal altercation, and unfortunately Mr. Campos, who is the father of the young lady, fired two rounds, possibly three rounds, at Mr. Serbek."

yet another fine example of the "officers in charge"


sad to read that anyone got hurt (likely not life-threatening) but how is this the 'owner's' fault ?? the owner wasn't handling it, the professional officer was.

See, people can carry weapons in public, who are not mass murders. Imagine that.



BTW, he actually CALLED local law enforcement to tell them he was doing it !

Imagine that.



Wait, did you just say that there are RESPONSIBLE gun owners? I think this lad can be setting an example.

He was 22, within the law, and informed law enforcement beforehand? Kudos.

It's much like an episode of "What would you do?" They tell the law enforcement beforehand, just to prevent any misunderstandings.

Happy?

You can take offence or you can realise that there are too many people with guns that shouldn't have guns.

Remember that kid that got given an automatic weapon to hold at a gun show a while back (think it was an Uzi)?

He blew his head off when he pulled the trigger.

Seen the video of the guy (may not be American though) who gave his loaded handgun to a toddler to...hold...or to play with..? Imagine the shock of those around when it goes off in the toddlers hands.

Doesn't matter who was handling it, a gun shouldn't just go off if the person holding it is experienced.

If they're not experienced, they should be taught the appropriate way to handle a gun in a controlled environment.

All the little sheep.

Have been taught well.

What this shows to me is an utter disconnect in this man's mind between the concepts of "legal" and "socially acceptable." Yes, it is legal to walk around carrying an AR15 with no muzzle discipline. But in a society that's seen a number of mass shootings in public places using that exact weapon, it's most definitely not acceptable. Same concept as how it's legal to run up and down the streets ranting about the "reptilian agenda," but people will still think you're a complete lunatic.

It was irresponsibility on the part of the father, for not asking questions as to what was going on....If he had gotten to the people and they reacted rashly saying "Hey man, we just wanted to take the girl for a good time." by all means blow up on them...

But just shooting a gun off without evening thinking to ask their intentions, who they were, or calling the police, was just plain irresponsibility.

guns don't just "go off", ever.
the person handling it IS the problem, especially in the news you posted.

so, are you suggesting the cop needs more training ?
if so, i would agree

I saw a NG convoy stopped at the local Wal Mart a couple of months ago. There were 15 or so of them walking around the parking lot carrying M-16s. I didn't really see a good reason for that unless they're trying to condition us.

Personally, I'd rather see a civilian carrying one at Wal Mart, than a soldier.

Um wait.

Politicians, and their bodyguards are the ONLY ones who get have weapons?

Now you know exactly WHY the Second was created.
