    Yes, there will be if the safety malfunctioned. So, I guess in this case we can agree..

    It was the guns fault.
    Language is political. Each of us talks, listens, and thinks in his/her own special language that has been shaped by our culture, experiences, profession, personality, mores and attitudes. The chances of us meeting someone else who talks the exact same language is pretty remote.

    I agree, but would like to add: Don't point unloaded guns at anyone either. It's the #1 gun safety rule. If you do not fully understand and adhere to this rule, you have no business owning a firearm.

    yes, if the safety did not malfunction then we have a bigger quagmire:
    ... The two witnesses said Perry was displaying his recently purchased .25-caliber handgun when "he set the safety ...
    possibly they assumed he set the safety when he had not actually done so (effectively)

    or that is an alibi to explain why they should not be held as suspects in his murder

    Cops: Man fatally shoots himself while showing off new gun's safety - chicagotribune.com


    A 21-year-old Joliet man accidentally shot and killed himself while trying to demonstrate how the safety mechanism worked on his new handgun, authorities said today.

    Deon D. Perry was pronounced dead at 5:40 a.m. Saturday at Provena St. Joseph Medical Center.

    Joliet Police Cmdr. Al Roechner said today that the mishap occurred around 5 p.m. Friday as Perry was sitting in a vehicle in front of his home with two other people.

    The two witnesses said Perry was displaying his recently purchased .25-caliber handgun when "he set the safety, pointed the gun at his face, pulled the trigger and the safety didn't work," Roechner said. Perry was shot in the right side of his face near his nose.

    Perry's friends called 911 and were joined by police on their way to the hospital's emergency room.
    At least he had the common decency to point the gun at himself instead of someone else.

    Having said that, far more people die in bathroom accidents, so maybe we should abolish bathrooms.

    It really doesn't matter whether the safety mechanism was malfunctioning. The man pointed a loaded weapon at his own head and pulled the trigger.

    just goes to prove that you can't fix stupid.

    The 4 rules of Gun Safety:

    1. All guns are always loaded.
    2. Never let the muzzle cover anything you are not willing to destroy.
    3. Keep your finger off the trigger until your sights are on the target.
    4. Be sure of your target and what is beyond it.
