AbbeySomeone: MisterRonbo: 25 years ago, I lived in a ticky tacky little apartment building. The apartment next to me was occipied by a nice kid who had just become a deputy sheriff, and his very, very smokin' hot, very, very airhead girfriend (bonus: her name was actually Tara).

We all became friendly, playing cards, he'd be working and I'd drive her and the other waitresses she worked with to the club, make sure nobody bothered them. All good.

One day she calls me up, middle of a weekday. Says she's making lunch, I should come over and hang out. Sure, why not, we're friends.

I walk in, and she's pointing a 30.06 rifle at me. It was her boyfriend's, she thought it would be funny. Without thinking, I grab it, very hard, and well, she got whacked in the head very, very hard by the stock. She was crying and mad and pretty pissed off. I was...indifferent.

She called her boyfriend the deputy sheriff, who proceeded to chew her out and really, really get her crying. I could hear him through the receiver in the phone. Then I guess he told her to give me the phone, where upon he and I proceeded to apologize to each other. "I'm sorry for whacking your girlfriend in the head with your rifle." "No, she deserved it, good lesson, so sorry she did that." "Yeah, I kinda came close to soiling myself there, I don't like guns pointed at me." etc.

They broke up soon after, though I would like to think that was a symptom not a cause.

You slept with her?


Sweet evil Jesus I wish, she was gorgeous. But not my type - she had self-esteem.

Carn: Artisan Sandwich: Whenever I handle a firearm, before even making eye contact with it (?), I boil my hands to ensure that there is no gunpowder rsidue on them. I then do a GSR test, and if it's positive I call the police on myself. If I pass, I get my reaching sticks and- over the course of a few hours- completely disassemble the weapon. I am always sure to keep each individual piece at least 12" from another so as not to encourage a negligent discharge from occuring. Lastly, in order to be completely safe, I melt the weapon down and turn it into either wind chimes or spinner rims. If you do less than that, if your safety standard is so low that you would actually handle a weapon, I know that one day you will shoot yourself in the head. I bet this guy didn't even do ONE pre-boil.

Good call, people should be mocked for taking extra caution when handling a deadly weapon. He checks his weapons to make sure there isn't debris in the chamber which could cause a backfire, what a nancy!


You don't pick up on things too good.

Serious Black: fusillade762: gregscott: They probably made sure the gun was "unloaded" by removing the "clip".

Tip: if a pistol has a round in the chamber, removing the magazine will not unload the round in the chamber.

True. However some pistols have magazine disconnects that prevent the weapon from firing if the magazine is removed. This one, for one example:

[www.browning.com image 400x272]

I didn't know such a safety feature existed, but that seems like something that should be included in every semi-auto handgun.


They aggravate the hell out of me. I only have one gun with a mag disconnect, and I only tolerate it because it's strictly a target pistol.

here to help: david_gaithersburg: Dude, seek help, and some reading courses probably wouldn't hurt either.

Your initial post was an attack on Obama and while you didn't come right out and say anything racist we all know what "Obama Voter" means to the right. Take your dog whistles cram 'em up your arse.

However there were MANY other overtly racist comments so I think my reading skills are just fine. As far as my mental health... well at least I'm not a blithering xenophobic troll who sh*ts on Fark threads day in and day out so at least I've got that going for me.

I hope you don't own any firearms. Seek help.

Draskuul: JonZoidberg: In fact, I only go to gun stores that check every gun every time before they hand it to a customer.

Same here, and after they hand it to me, I check it again myself, every time.


ignorant drunks with guns can be scary... I was out drinking one night with some people that live on the block, while on the block... This guy, without saying a word, while I am talking to someone else, puts a gun in my hand.... a fully loaded semi-auto... I still don't know what he was thinking. Probably just trying to show off. He was from California, and I gave him a some harsh words on gun safety before giving the gun back. I did not attempt to unload it or even check the safety as I was unfamiliar with the weapon. Just kept it pointed away from anything living.

stevarooni: ParaHandy: Therein lies the problem. It's almost as if the gun industry has a powerful lobbying group that makes sure the gun laws make it impossible to prosecute straw buyers.

Straw buyers? If he wasn't legally prohibited from owning a gun, someone else buying it for him wouldn't be a legally liable "straw buyer". Does that have pertinence to this situation, or is this just a gripe you have, in general?


Actually, no, it still could be a straw purchase:

It is immaterial
that the actual purchaser and the straw
purchaser are residents of the State in
which the licensee's business premises
is located, are not prohibited from receiving or possessing firearms, and
could have lawfully purchased firearms
from the licensee.

maram500: Dimensio: Snargi: Even drunk, I check to see of the piece is unloaded, or at least unchambered, before I do stupid stuff with it.

I refuse to touch any firearm (unless secured entirely within a case, and only if moving the cased firearm to a secure location) within six hours of consuming any alcoholic beverage.

I apply the same self-restriction to operation of a motor vehicle.

If, as a society, we continue to have firearms as available and common as they currently are, we need to make firearm safety classes mandatory in schools.

- Playing with guns after drinking
- Dead brother accidentally shot

Wait...you may be on to something

fnordest: Actually, no, it still could be a straw purchase:


Technically speaking, yes, it would be a straw purchase, just as a woman sending her boyfriend in to get tampons is turning him into a "straw purchaser". But it isn't the legally prohibited kind. So again...what is the revelvance, here?

Plant Rights Activist: degenerate-afro: the_chief: Finger off the trigger until you are ready to fire!!!

/It's like some people have no training at all.

Why was the gun even loaded?

when isn't it considered loaded?


Well, my state requires gun and ammunition to be transported separately without a permit. So at some point I have to consider the gun is ready to be legally transported. Or stand there looking OCD

Nothing new here.

My great grandad was almost killed by a stupid cousin playing with an "unloaded" shotgun. Thankfully for me, he sat up to look at the last minute and got it in the stomach instead of head.

And the cousin wasn't allowed to touch guns again.

I was referring to him saying that you had to partially dis-assemble the weapon in order to ensure that it is unloaded. That's retarded. I would have been dead thousands of times over if that was the case. The most important thing of all is muzzle control. The next is trigger control. In some jobs, muzzle control is not an option (house clearing, fighting withdrawal, the list goes on) so it comes down to keeping your finger off the trigger.

When, exactly, did "more minorities" begin purchasing firearms?


When they moved to the U.S., duh. Do you have any idea how many minorities are in the U.S. now? The Republican party does.

Theory Of Null: I'm assuming they took multiple photos of them holding a gun to his head. I have no idea why you would need more than one to prove you're crazy insane.

Well, except for weapons used for sport shooting. Some are worried that if you put too many safety features on a handgun, you encourage reckless behavior with all firearms and we already have hundreds of millions without the safety feature out there.

Is that an HK USP? hard to tell from the low quality pic and angle. mounting rail on the front looks a little short though. Anyway nice gun to get shot in the head by if that is your thing.

iron_city_ap: the_chief: Finger off the trigger until you are ready to fire!!!

/It's like some people have no training at all.

Plus the lack of muzzle discipline. Never point a gun at something you don't intend to shoot and don't put your finger on the trigger till you are ready to shoot. And always treat a gun as if its loaded. Simple common sense.


Common sense?  Training?  What are you some un-American Commie Pinkos that don;t realize that gun ownership is a RIGHT, not some sort of responsibility or privilege which means that gun onwers are free to do whateva they want, it's the only way to keep the rest of us safe don'tcha know.

Riiiiiggghht.

I guess in a way that's true because the people who blow those whistles don't count racism as being racist.

The people who notice racism are the REAL racists.
Also... don't call me a liberal. My politics are more complex than just blind banner waving and pants pissing over the talking points du jour.

Soymilk: hundreddollarman: Is it really that surprising that gun violence in the U.S. went way up once more minorities started buying guns?

Lanza, Laughner, Sideshow Bob, the Columbine killers are all white.


Since we are all playing the race game. For high profile mass shootings you left off the WVU shooter and Major Hassan (neither of whom are white). If I wasnt on a phone, I would link 3 more mass shootings in south florida by African Americans, including 2 that happened at funerals. You probably never heard of them since they were gang related. Which leads me to another question, why dont mass shootings get publicized if the motive is something other than guy shoots up a school or something for no no apparent reason?

/also im pretty sure hundreddollarman was trolling and ill give him an 8/10 based on number of responses.

I thought the same thing... but not because of his ethnicity. It was because he's flashing gang signs and holding a gun to his head. Most latinos I've ever met were very kind and hard working folks. In fact even the one latino gangbanger I met was too. I didn't even realize he was a thug until someone pointed it out to me. He sure didn't act like it.

I know that's not always the case but every race has assholes. It's more of a human trait then a racial one.

They see what they want to see. It'd be amusing but these people are allowed to vote. I was watching CSPAN during the election and the callers were scaring the piss out of me.

Republicans: They could not string more than two words together. It literally sounded like most of them had just suffered a MAJOR blow to the head and the hatred... oh gawd the seething hatred.

Democrats: Seemed well meaning enough and could actually speak... mostly... but they were also pretty freaking dumb. Lots of really uninformed statements amongst to "WOO HOOS!" and "GOBAMAS!"

Then there were the independents. They were intelligent and well spoken but the things they were saying were... f*cked. Mostly about completely dismantling any type of power structure which may sound nice in principle but considering the attitudes of the other two subsets a civil war would be inevitable. And what happens to the most vulnerable in a society like that?

I used to think that leaving things up to the people was the best way to go and that human nature can overcome and do the right thing but now... that thought is terrifying.

Wat do?!
