What's really surprising is nobody returned fire.

I've never seen a group of people that so actively sabotage their own cause like the gun nuts do.

If you're too slow to chase stuff, you have to shoot it to slow it down.

Huntceet: No Such Agency: brandent:
Apparently you don't understand how a shotgun works. Hitting 3 people simultaneously is quite easy. Notice how it says two of them in the hand and one in the torso. Depending on the size of the "shot", several dozen bb sized....well bbs.... are ejected at high velocity and scatter out the end. The diameter of the pattern being directly related to the distance from the end of the barrel. If the people injured were 20 or 30 yards away standing in a group it is quite possible to hit several at once.

You mean a shotgun fires a bunch of bullets at once? Like an assault rifle? How are weapons like that even remotely legal? There's no way that's safe or legitimate for hunting or self defense. You could hit things you aren't even aiming at.

You don't know much about guns or hunting, do you. Maybe do a little studying on the internet.


Holy shiat. THIS is why no one can take gun activists seriously. Even when it's your own side you can't recognize sarcasm.

Somehow the gun discharged.
SOMEHOW the gun discharged.


....and that's the problem right there. Somehow THIS IDIOT OVER HERE BROUGHT A LOADED, CHAMBERED WEAPON, WITH THE SAFETY OFF, and then PULLED THE TRIGGER while picking it up.

Put him in jail for a lengthy time... accidental shootings should be treated the same as a DUI wreck resulting in attempted manslaughter charges or worse.

He had to make so many inexcusable errors for this to happen that I can think of no other recourse other than to make examples out of people.

/and I'm a gun nut


THIS! I like shooting, and DAMMIT why didn't CHeney have his permit revoked???

I mean, I know why, but still...

It's pretty hard to return fire when you're bravely waddling for the exit as fast as your legs can carry you while streams of panicked urine are dripping down your legs.

My favorite is: "The clip is out so there never could still be a bullet in the chamber" BLAM...ricochet... Durrrrr.
then: "I gots to load my weapon as i have just left the building"... BLAM....in the hand

/just about as fun as watching a gun safety instructor pull out the clip and put the gun to his head and watching the brains fall out the other side.

doyner: eddievercetti: jehovahs witness protection: Every gun show I ever attended required all weapons to have zip-ties run through them to keep the bolt open.

To bad some dumbasses forget the advanced technology of a zip tie!

The NRA successfully lobbied Congress to remove the zip-tie restriction on our freedoms in 2003.


Thanks for clearing that up.  I've never been to a gun show, but in every photo or video of one that I've seen I could not recall any zip-ties.

I've seen zip-ties required to keep swords and axes in their scabbards at Renaissance Festivals.  I  guess the pointy-sharpy nuts don't have a strong lobby.

Neither shooting happened inside the respective show. One was in the parking lot, one was at the checkpoint where they would zip-tie the gun.

But more guns is still the solution.

Nothing makes you appreciate guns more than shooting people with them.

You obviously don't watch Benny Hill.

OK, ladders not swords, same idea though.

Statistically, 500 people are killed every year from accidental gun discharges. That means on average 1-2 deaths per day, and undoubtedly more injuries. Lots of people die and get injured every day for more stupid reasons than accidental discharge.

This is only "news" or "ironic" if you're totally uninformed.

If only someone would have accidentally shot those who accidentally shot someone before they could accidentally shoot whom they shot.

Fortunately, we only lost 219 people today as the price we pay for the freedom to drink alcohol.

eagerly awaiting the typical "THAT'S DIFFERENT!" response from the alcoholics.

Wouldn't that be if no one got shot?

Benny Hill COULD stab someone with a ladder, though, if it was sharp.

Did this imaginary marathon runner injure three other people on his way out?

The incident apparently occurred at a security check point when the owner of a 12-gauge shotgun was asked to remove his gun from its case. Somehow, the gun discharged, shooting two people in the hand and one in the right torso.

Gee, I don't know how that could've happened, what with me being a responsible gun owner who UNLOADS THE farkING GUN BEFORE I PUT IT INTO THE CASE and all.

Seriously. It's not hard to keep a weapon unloaded. And you should be treating EVERY weapon like it's loaded anyhow. What in the chocolate covered f*ck are these idiots thinking?

And on average lose around ninety a day to automobile mishaps. Ban cars; everybody can be a douchebag cyclist like I am.

You're welcome!

The car drivers knew the risk, are wearing safety gear, and didn't crash into the spectators. The marathon runner didn't injure any innocent bystanders and died doing something that is of great health benefit for the vast majority of people involved in the sport. And the ones at the air show are the exact same idiots who go to gun shows.

There're a lot of irresponsible gun owners.


There are even more now. People who previously had little interest in shooting and/or firearms are running out to buy guns, thinking that this might be their last opportunity to do so before they are banned. (I am not saying that they will be banned.) I heard some downright scary conversations at the gun range last weekend. And it wasn't a "gun nut" that made it scary. It was someone who had absolutely no knowledge of guns, shooting, gun safety, etc. He even mentioned that guns scared him, but he wanted one "for defense." Salesman suggested that he rent a gun and take a 1-hour class offered by the range before buying. I thought that was logical.

My theory is that if they do ban high-capacity magazines and scary guns the next problem will be guns that are too small and too easy to conceal. So we'll see mass shootings with the assault rifles that are already out there, and more accidental shootings by people with pocket-guns and small handguns.
