    "Reducing the number of accidents" is a red herring.

    The gun shows I used to go to with my dad (he had a table and still does) required that of all firearms.

My dad's gun club who ran the show would go around citing people for not having them, and then temporarily providing them cheap ones. I don't think they ever had an incident of accidental discharge in twenty years. I honestly thought that kind of stuff was standard. Guess not.

    I know at one of the ranges I shoot at (the other the targets come back to the shooters so there is no need for cease fires) when there is a cease fire there needs to be a flag in the chamber or a piece of rope through the action so the RO can see all weapons are safe
    Well, considering that some ROs are old and have not the best eyesight, bright chamber blockers are key to safety on the range.

    Sure, if it WERE unsubstantiated, but it wasn't. You attempt as an empty hand-slapping, knee-jerker was a fail.

    Does or does not the statement, "I heard from a security guard that X happened", fit the common understanding of 'hearsay'?

    Provide an instance where I was "making something up" or are you mistaking me for another poster?

    Yeah, but I think this guy was coming into the show. Only if he was anti-gun could that apply here.

    However, stuff will happen. Get tens of thousands of guns together in any given weekend and something is bound to go wrong eventually. Doesn't change my stance one bit - gun control in all forms is stupid.

    That does remind me of something I did a million years ago in my youth. I didn't realize hand crossbows were under the same rules as guns and I cocked one (testing the draw weight). It was obviously not loaded, after all you can SEE the "chamber" on a crossbow, but I thought the dealer was going to have a heart attack! LOL!

    On a different note; maybe Obama should take notice that people are buying guns and ammo in bulk. Does "civil war" mean anything to him? or does the 500% increase in gun sales go over his head?
    Civil war my foot. I'd bet he believes, as I do, that it has more to do with the fervor created by the extreme right-wing than anything else. And before you go labeling me as anti-gun I suggest you do some research about my position.
