The 54-year-old St. Charles resident told police he was showing off a .25 caliber pistol he thought was unloaded

Someone this stupid should not be allowed to handle guns, let alone sell them.

18 people were murdered in Chicago in the first 10 days of the year. Nobody died at a gun show. If you want me I'll be at a gun show, they are obviously much safer than Chicago.

THE GUN IS ALWAYS LOADED
 
2013-01-26 06:32:24 PM
The man told police he was trying to dry fire, or fire the gun without a round in it. He said the gun was unloaded when he checked it earlier in the week and he didn't know who would have loaded it. Police found another loaded gun on the man's table and unloaded it, according to the report.

We agree - all guns are clearly very dangerous and should be regulated.

No, not all of the murders were with guns, 15 were, two were with knives and one guy was beaten to death. The common denominator is criminals. We need to better regulate criminals.

Not only that, but Obama is from Chicago, and he is a Negro, you know. Therefore idiots shooting themselves at gun shows are better than Negroes.
 
2013-01-26 06:39:35 PM
so he shot himself with a .25 that he owned and was either racking or dry firing?


So much wrong with this story
 
2013-01-26 06:54:13 PM
I think it's clear that the only guns that need to be regulated are those owned by Chicago thugs.

He's lucky he just shot himself and didn't kill anyone else. How do you leave something like "the gun was unloaded a week ago" to chance?

I'm not a gun person and even I know the basic rules of "the gun is ALWAYS loaded" and "don't point a gun at anything you're not willing to shoot/kill."

Clearly Obama, in concert with the indestructible shadow armies of the U.N., used their their time machine(s) to discredit this brilliant patriot by secretly loading this firearm of unimaginable destructive power and then unleashed their mind control rays to force him to act in an asstardedly irresponsible fashion all with the greater goal of forcing every American who cheered at the end of "Rocky IV" into indentured servitude making -- and then destroying -- Larry the Cable Guy memorabilia.

When will you sheeple finally see how simple it is?

Chicago should enact some tough guns laws.  That'll stop the violence.

Can we just ban stupid people?

Now I understand this proposal won't be popular with everyone, so how about we just ban high-capacity assault stupidity.  Like, if you're really, really stupid and in a position where your stupidity could do a lot of damage, then you get taken away and melted down and fed to geese or something.

Granted, this proposal would change the makeup of Washington DC, the major media, all of Fox "news," and most of the NASCAR, MLB, and NFL fan base, and it would cut into the profits of the  Anheuser Busch brewing company, as well as decimating the two major political parties.  But in the end, wouldn't it be worth it?

How hard is it to eject a clip, rack the slide and lock it back, and visually clear the chamber?

2013-01-26 08:05:30 PM
Why is the answer either arm everybody or disarm everybody? The problems causing gun violence runs much deeper than who has and who doesn't have a gun. It's education, opportunities, mental health, proper parenting, and yes, easy access to firearms. This isn't going to be solved any time soon, but as long as the debate is reduced to guns good v. guns bad it will never be solved.

Apparently some have breached the wall and have begun to smuggle firearms in. They should really find and repair the damaged sections.

What a bunch of lightweights, right? I mean, you can take down 20 six-year-olds in maybe, what? 30 seconds? Don't even need to reload! Pause for a quick MAGAZINE change, and you can give everyone a quick double-tap to make sure they're not just pretending.

Chicago, you wimps. Can't do REAL patriotic rates-of-fire, can you?

But nuance is hard, so you have to either want everybody armed to the teeth, or want all guns seized from their owners by the government without regard to whether or not said guns were acquired lawfully or the mental stability of the owners. The "small arms for some, free mental health evaluation for others" position is forbidden.

This is America. You're only allowed to be at either extreme position in any debate, especially political debates.

Yes, go with a law doesn't stop all crime so there should be no laws at all argument. That's a sure winner

Always point the gun at yourself. The gun is never loaded, especially if the gun has been out of your sight for any amount of time.

There, I just fixed the issue of stupid people having weapons.

Bastard. You beat me to it by 30 seconds.

But seriously - the firing mechanism will be damaged if they dry-fire the gun without pressing the barrel against a firm surface, like the temple. Obama will take your gun away if you damage it by not pressing it against your skull when you check it.

Are gun shows gun free zones? Because I hear guns are attracted to that.

Of course. That's where Chicagoans arm themselves before they go back home.

I don't think most of the people at Fox are stupid, I just think they're unscrupulous whores pandering to retards.

I'm a gun owner, hunt, shoot a lot, been around guns all my life. I'm glad my dad taught me the basics at a young age and enforced them as we got older. I've been in a few gun stores since the buying panic has started and have been appalled at the morons that are in there buying. I wish that gun safety and hadling classes were mandatory for everyone in this country, not just owners and buyers. It should be treated like home economics in school, it's just a basic fact of life that you may be around a gun someday and you should know how to handle one safely without being frightened of it. And I shouldn't have to be worried about the knucklehead at the gun show that wants to sweep the crowd with the pistol he's looking at.
 
2013-01-26 09:09:38 PM
How the hell does one fire a pistol into their own palm when firing it by sliding the action?

Was he holding it by wrapping his hand around the end of the barrel?

Dude is insanely stupid or lying.
