efgeise: mamoru: Darth_Lukecash: The most dangerous gun is an unloaded gun.

Indeed. If people just kept to the philosophy that there is no such thing as an unloaded gun and treat their guns accordingly, this kind of crap wouldn't happen.

Every time a story like this comes up, I hate how they are called accidents. Since the answer to these three questions is almost certainly "yes", it should be classified as some form of homicide (at least manslaughter, if not some degree of murder) and prosecuted accordingly: was the gun loaded? was the gun pointed at the victim? was the shooter's finger on the trigger?

Given the basic rules of firearms safety, answering yes to those questions should show intent, IMNSHO, even though what it usually shows is stupidity and ignorance.

From TFA: Phoenix Police Sgt Steve Martos said the victim's sister would likely be charged with manslaughter if tests conclude she had alcohol in her system.

Screw that. She should be charged with manslaughter anyway.

To be fair, it's actually very easy for a gun to be accidentally fired. A round could get lodged in the chamber and not get ejected. Or, better yet, you could get debris stuck in the barrel of a gun before shooting a blank. Look at what happened to Brandon Lee whilst filming The Crow.

I'm not saying that she shouldn't be charged with manslaughter, mind you. It's an accident in that it wasn't meant to happen. But the fact is that she was playing with a gun that wasn't visually inspected to not have a round in it, which is what should instantly make it manslaughter, alcohol or not.

As a note, whenever I pull out my bolt action rifle, for instance, I always take the bolt off and do a bore and magazine inspection. It's slightly harder for a semi-automatic pistol, a basic disassembly of a semi-automatic handgun (I'm talking slide removal, barrel inspection, and slide insertion) should take no more than 30 seconds if you're slow.


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.

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.

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.

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

Why was the gun even loaded?

They're all loaded.

I meant "why didn't they check the chamber and magazine".

I realize from the perspective of gun safety that the gun is always loaded (yes, I taken a gun safety course), but from a "no seriously, how did this happen" standpoint, if you are going to take a picture with a gun, you should double, triple, quadruple check everything before doing anything else.

I don't care if I checked it a hundred times, I still wouldn't point it at my head. But yeah, that was a big FAIL.


Well, how do you take the "Shotgun!" rip off of that joint then, brainiac?

Probably the inference is that if there wasn't alcohol in her system she can't be charged, since there wouldn't have been enough fluid circulating to keep her brain functioning.

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.
