    Heaven forbid someone use a tragedy to point out the tragic misuse of a firearm.

    your MO is using tragedies to try to insinuate that such incidents are common and widespread and that guns need to be banned to stop them

    No targets or hunting game in that list, I would suggest that targets would be #1 deer would be #2 other wild game #3 Commit a Felony would be #4 suicide #5. If you put killing a bad guy around 10k then shooting a loved one would be after that.

    You didnt point out the tragic misuse of a firearm. You did what you always do...used a tragic misuse of a firearm to promulgate a lie to further your cause.

    Bull****

    A gun owner pulling a trigger is most likely to shoot paper targets, metal targets, clay targets, or an animal they are hunting. I pulled the trigger almost 300 times this morning and didnít shoot myself, a loved one, or commit a felony. Neither did the 8 other gun owners beside me.

    Yes, we should stop pointing out when tragedies occur with firearms because it might alter the perception people have of guns, harming the "Precious."

    Reminds me of that old but true argument I've been making forever: If you own a gun, after shooting yourself, you are more likely to shoot a loved one.




    Shakes head
    The son-in-law was an idiot but so was the father-in-law. One of the basic rules when handling a gun is to keep your finger off the trigger until you're sure of your target and you absolutely know its a target you want to shoot. Another words, you only put your finger on the trigger when you're absolutely sure your would be target is a bad guy and not an innocent person. You also keep the gun at the ready position where its pointed diagonally down towards the ground until you're aware of a bad guy, you don't walk around with a gun pointed forward in a manner in which you might muzzle innocent people.

    By the same token you don't jump out and scare people, that's just plain stupid. I wonder if the man's daughter has forgiven her now dead husband.
