Is this what the NRA means when they say it would be safer for EVERYONE to have a gun?

The biggest idiots and most careless will simply shoot themselves?

FTA:
Witness told officers that Shaw, his uncle, grandparents and some friends were on the back patio talking when he showed them a .38-caliber revolver, police said.

Shaw told them that he kept one round out of the firing chamber to prevent an accidental shooting, according to police.


Somebody forgot (or didn't know) that revolvers advance to the next chamber before firing.

Revolvers do not work that way. When you pull the trigger with an empty chamber, the cylinder rotates and brings a round into firing position!

From the comments i'm going to guess Subby's name is Steven.

Anyway, how hard is it to not shoot yourself? Seems to happen an awful lot. People don't prove that knives aren't sharp by stabbing themselves. Actually scratch that, they do run their finger along the blade then go "ow". So I guess there's no hope for common humanity. As a group we're simply terrible.

Smith&Wesson really have it out for this family. That, or Darwin sacrificed creativity for eliminating that particular genetic line quickly.

So can we at least agree that some level of mandatory training should be required for people that wish to own guns?
 
2013-01-10 12:00:08 PM
I think we should encourage all gun nuts to prove just how safe their guns are.

DO NOT EVER POINT A WEAPON, LOADED OR UNLOADED (cause you never know) AT ANYTHING YOU DON'T INTEND TO KILL.

Really? So, I guess you could say it revolves in a circle to bring the next bullet into position. Hmm, you'd think they'd make that a bit more clear. Maybe they should rename it to something like "circle firing thingy" or "revolv..." hmm, never mind. As a point of fact, you should always assume a gun is loaded even when you know it isn't. I don't mean to be harsh, but this guy was a numb-nuts.

I guess he forgot about the "revolver" part?

I think hunter's safety should be mandatory for all junior high students. I'm from Montana, so pretty much everyone takes it then anyhow. But yeah rule #1 always treat a gun like it's loaded, #2 never point the barrel at anything you don't want to shoot.

Who says he had it legally?

Often in cases like this, cops and press decide that the situation is bad enough, and they let details like the legality of the weapon to slide.

Right, this guy must have picked up this concept from an old western or some other show describing the old Colts in which it was routine to leave one chamber open so that the hammer wasn't resting on a live round for safety.  This shouldn't be necessary with any modern revolver if I'm not mistaken.  They have mechanisms in place to help prevent accidental firing of the gun.

Alexander Shaw's father, Richard Shaw, was shot to death June 18 in a home invasion robbery at 7014 Orpine Drive N., police said. A co-defendant, Charles C. Stone, 28, was charged on Aug. 10.


Hmmm, that makes me think that the father was a codefendant but a little googling shows he was the victim. 8 days after his wife died of cancer. And now 6 months later the son is dead.

This is clearly a conspiracy performed by the travel industry in order to force people to travel to funerals!

You mean like not putting it to your head and pulling the trigger.

All of my guns are safe and as mellow as a baby kitten. Unless they get pissed off. Then they break out of their gun safe and start firing rounds indiscriminately . I REALLY have to walk on eggshells around Mr. SKS, being a crazy Russian and all.

Shaw told them that he kept one round out of the firing chamber to prevent an accidental shooting, according to police.

Witnesses then said Shaw tried to prove the gun was safe by placing it to his head and pulling the trigger, which is when the gun fired, fatally wounding him, police said.
