The first thing that I was taught before I could even pick up a gun was safety. There are certain rules that one should observe whenever you handle guns. Always treat the gun as if it was loaded. Never point the gun at another person. When not firing the gun, leave the chamber open and the safety on. All of these things, and more, are there to keep guns safe. I have been to a number of shooting events and never saw a single accident because we followed these rules. It seems that the following people never learned these safety rules.
Pointing Guns at Yourself
One of the most dangerous things that you can do with a gun is to point it at yourself. In 2010 there were 606 accidental shooting deaths in the United States and it’s all due to people like this.
For the two people who are checking for ammo in the gun, there is a much easier way that doesn’t put you at risk of a bullet in the eye, open the action and check from the back. For the guy wearing the ATF hat, really? You would think that someone like that wouldn’t be stupid enough to point a gun at there own head. As for the redneck, he probably deserves what’s coming, but he gives gun enthusiasts a bad name. As for the rest, what can I say? It’s because of you that liberals keep trying to pass more gun control laws.
Pointing Guns at Others
Now we have the other rule that makes guns safe for all, don’t point guns at other people. It is people like the following that contribute to the 606 accidental shootings that occurred in 2010.
Here we have two mothers pointing guns at their kids, girls pointing guns at other girls, two guys in a stupid showdown, and two guys with guns pointing at their heads. If it is dangerous to point a gun at your own head, why on Earth would you let someone else point the gun? If you want to despair at the state of human intelligence run a Google search for “stupid accidental shootings”. You will find a list a mile long. Seriously, a murder suspect that shoots himself, gun owners showing off guns only to shoot the bystanders, a zombie game with an accidental shooting, drunk woman accidentally shoots husband, the list goes on. I can see the same things happening as a result of these pictures.
The final thought for everyone today is about gun control laws. It’s idiots like the ones in the above pictures that give liberals the ammo they need to propose and impose further gun control laws. However, there are a couple of things that you should know about gun control. Gun control just keeps guns out of the hands of honest, law-abiding gun enthusiasts. If a criminal wants to shoot someone they don’t apply for a gun permit. They buy a gun on the black market, that or they steal a gun. This is why gun control doesn’t work.
Plus gun control really flies in the face of the second amendment. The second amendment was so important to the founding fathers for one important reason. It is the reason highlighted by the Hitler quote. That’s right. The founding fathers wanted us to have guns so the we could rise up against our oppressors, the government. They wanted to give us the means to defend ourselves from the government, should it become necessary.
I included the photo of Sarah Palin for one reason, and it isn’t political. I think that Sarah Palin is an idiot and never should have been chosen as the vice presidential candidate. However, there is something that she is doing right, regardless of the caption, she is holding the gun correctly. That’s right. She is holding the gun with the barrel pointed upward. If the gun were to go off it wouldn’t hit someone by accident. She may be an idiot, but she isn’t an idiot about guns.
Lastly, we have the “Idiot’s Special”. The gun made for the people that make this blog.
