Is that a .380? Seriously? Guy deserves to have his permit pulled. Talk about being irresponsible.

This exploit of G. Quackenbush
Was due to a potent social push
Any disruption in his fun
Could be met with a gun-
It's amazing he hasn't shot off his tush!

A 7th-grade student found the weapon on Wednesday with a round in the chamber and the safety off.

Glad they pulled his CC license.  The guy is an idiot.

Armed elementary school teachers are the true wave of our future safety. With their lengthy amount of firearms training and invariably innate steely-nerved and stoic actions, our problems here will soon be over.

Nina_Hartley's_Ass: And he's a licensed gun dealer. But this won't affect THAT license.
And he never called law enforcement but he showed up at the theater the next morning...

Tillamook Sheriff Andy Long told the local paper that the man acted like the weapon 'would be in the lost and found with lost eyeglasses and other things.'


Well of course it would be in the lost and found. With a round in the chamber and the safety off.

This IS Merica, right? I mean, I thought this was Merica? Apparently one lib finds a gun and suddenly this isn't Merica anymore. I want my country back.

From your first link: "You have people shooting up malls, building bombs," he said. "And I'm the bad guy."

Awww, poor widdle persecuted Quackenbush, I feel so bad for him. It's so unfair that anyone criticize him just for not knowing where his loaded gun was.

Just in case this turns into a gun rights/2nd Amendment thread...

Can any Fark lawyers explain to me the differnece between 'individual rights' versus 'the people's rights'? I've heard people make arguments based on the interpretation that the 2nd is a 'people's right' and NOT and individual right (i.e. it does not protect an individual's right to bear arms). What I don't get is : how a right can apply to the 'people' but not apply to the individuals that make up the 'people'?

Yeah, that's a serious question and not a troll, so please give a legit answer and not some snarktastic counter-troll. I'd appreciate it.

Supreme court settled this specifically regarding the Second Amendment. They concluded it is an individual's right.

Other than having his CCW where he shouldn't have, and the safety off, I don't see what was wrong about having a round in the chamber. That is standard practice. The hammer (which is internal on most CCW pieces) can only be cocked by pulling the trigger.

The fact that he "forgot" his gun in a theater is reason enough, though. I guess you're right....
 
2012-12-21 06:37:19 AM
I'm guessing he's never actually "had to" fire his weapon to scare off animals. Someone this eager to shoot something (the safety off? Really?) probably wanders around taking potshots at squirrels because "It was coming right at me!"

If you're that freaking paranoid you are exactly the kind of person who should not be carrying a firearm... nor leaving your house.
 
2012-12-21 06:49:09 AM
As an owner of many weapons myself, including firearms, and that has lived in questionable neighborhoods throughout California for years, I can honestly say I've never felt the need to actually carry a weapon deadlier than a pocket knife (deadly only to whole apples! RAWR!) with me anywhere. If someone does feel that need, they need to woman up or move.

I can't stand irresponsible gun owners anyway. They make all of us look bad, and that's a shame. We don't deserve the bad rep the dipshiats give us by simple association of owning guns.

It might be standard practice for law enforcement, but grandpa has no business keeping a round in the chamber. It only takes a split second to chamber a round if it's needed. Keeping a round in the chamber increases exponentially the possibility of an accidental discharge.

And without the safety on, this was an accident waiting to happen.

Anne Marie Murphy-"Church bells tolled Thursday for a brave Sandy Hook Elementary School teacher who died while trying to protect the student in her arms."

Victoria Soto- who was buried on Wednesday also died trying to protect her students. Seven kids she hid in a classroom closet survived the slaughter.

This guy [in the article] is the type of moron I immediately think of when people talk about arming teachers and college students and everyone else in the country.

Would most people be responsible? Sure. But all it takes is one moron to kill another kid, or shoot a bystander on accident.

Of the movie "The Hobbit," his review in a letter to news media organizations explaining the incident was brief: "Overly long," he said, "and fairly boring."

Well, I'm glad he included that important bit of info, because if there's one movie critic whose opinion you can trust, it's a senile old gun-nut who has abandoned his loaded safety-off weapon in a theater full of children!

By any chance, did he review the theater's overpriced food and drinks, as well??

I don't care about the round chambered and safety off, the gun isn't going to just fire on it's own, it's the complete lack of positive control of the weapon at all times. How in the f*ck do you leave it in a theater and not realize it till the next day? Not only that but why the f*ck did he unholster it???

Throw this f*cking idiot in jail and let the inmates teach him positive control.

That's why it's better to carry assault weapons. Just sling it in front of you so you won't forget it.

not all teachers, but senior teachers and staff should be given concealed firearms and be trained like police officers. After all, they are guarding your kids.

Most gun owners are responsible, we're supposed to be, but there are plenty of morons with guns as well. A friend, who also shoots, went up to an open gun range the next county up and saw a man bringing a child of maybe 6 or 7 (her estimation, I thankfully was not there) and said she thought "good, the child needs to learn firearm safety if they've got firearms" to herself in her head. She said they were only a bit down from her and she was kind of watching them out of the corner of her eye. The kid finally got to shoot the gun, got off one shot, and promptly burst into tears. Poor kid was just scared. The man, which she assumed was his dad, flipped out, took the gun away, and started wildly waving his hands in the air while yelling at the kid,  all with a farking loaded gun in one of his hands. She said she's never seen so many people kiss dirt so fast, they were all so freaked out by it.

This is why even though I support gun rights, I think there should be a class and/or some tests before you're allowed to even touch any firearms. That dude was obviously a hazard to himself or others or quite possibly both, he was such a moron.

/yeah, the range master threw him out
GOOD.

No, really, carrying a double action only with a round in the chamber is safe for a responsible CCW holder. Gramps doesn't fall in that category.

Gun owners, you have a problem. If you believe in any increased restrictions on gun ownership or use you need to speak up, often and loudly.

Otherwise your voice will be represented by this guy:

Had a conversation with a man at work yesterday who said that even though he already has guns, after what happened last week he's buying more.

I was thinking of telling him he should just buy more magazines for the guns he already has and keep them filled but I didn't want to give him any more ideas...
 
2012-12-21 08:41:47 AM
The real problem here is obvious, he wasn't armed as he went home that night. What if some punk, had held a gun on him and he was there defenseless. If you conceal carry it is your duty to carry two weapons in case just this scenario happens to you.

/think of the children!
 
2012-12-21 08:42:39 AM
Everyone agrees that someone like this should have his weapons taken away from him. What's interesting is that not everyone agrees that we should try to keep someone like this from getting weapons in the first place.

Paranoid enough to carry a chambered round with the safety off? Sorry but that's all kinds of farking stupid. He's lucky he hasn't shot himself or someone else already.
