This sort of reminds me of an experience I had. I woke up one morning and went to take a leak. I was havin a hard time seein ol' willy jr. under my beer belly. Old age and too much PBR was settin in. I figred I oughten a git me one of them there penis extendomatics. I put in a plug of my favrite tabacky and went down to the local gun show.

I found a table that had'n a AR-2000 weapon of mass assault rifle with 50,000 round drum clip magazine belt and figurd that oughten'a do the trick. I made sure the gun show loophole was in effect. I don't want a end up on any of dem gubmint drone hit lists. I bought it took it out to my diesel dually monster truck with deer head hood ornament and stuck it in the bed stock first. A round was chambered and the gun went off by itself, blowing my straw hat clean off. Soiled myself, I did.

Gaylord Fister: How come there isn't a gun license like a drivers license? One could argue that guns are equally if not more dangerous than cars.

Of course, now some retard is going to come along saying "durr but carz kil mor peepl", but you have to consider that people spend way less time handling or even operating guns than cars. If people would spend the same amount of time with guns as with cars, the numbers would probably be way closer.

So, just make it a requirement to complete a gun safety course, be able to hit a target with a certain precision and complete a written exam to get a gun license.

Also, the punishment for handling a gun while drunk should be the same as a DUI.


There is. You don't need a license to purchase, store, polish, modify, build, operate, drool over, etc. a car if you do it on private property. In that sense, guns are more regulated than cars. Take it out in public and you'll need a drivers license. In most states a special license, extra training and a background check are required to be able to carry a gun in public. If my state (CA) treated guns like they do cars it would be a huge expansion of my gun rights.

Someone should put together a Signal 30-type film that shows the real results of gun injuries, accidental or otherwise. Maybe just as a viral phenomenon it would cut down on this sort of thing. Probably difficult to do these days.

Alonjar: Ablejack: maachubo: Shadow Blasko: Dearest firearms enthusiasts:

I generally stay out of the debates, but I would like to offer one small bit of constructive criticism.

Every time I read "Keep your booger hook off the bang switch" my estimation of your IQ drops by about 1/2, and I know I can't be the only one who has that reaction to that statement.

Is it so hard to say "Keep your finger off the trigger"?

It's the terminology used by instructors to explain gun safety to law enforcement trainees. So, yes. Yes it is so hard.

You'd think that the instructors would decide to take training more seriously. Obviously the hokey "make it sound cool" approach is not getting the safety message through to students.

You're BOTH retarded. Ive never seen or heard a gun instructor be anything but extremely professional and serious, anywhere, ever. Its Serious Business, and most people treat it as such.
If you're joking while firearms are involved in any capacity at all, you've already made a mistake.


Relax bozo. We are commenting on the report of another farker who claimed that he did hear an instructor give such a cavalier lesson. The fact that you have not heard this type of thing is fortunate but irrelevant. The occurrence of events does not depend on you witnessing them, as you know. As for your second point concerning joking about firearm training; We agree. In fact that is precisely our point.

loaba: Gonna get flamed... Oh well...

Firearms, like automobiles, are deadly weapons if handled incorrectly and in an unsafe manner. Why aren't firearms licensed and restricted in the same manner as are automobiles?

/ I don't want to take your guns away - I'd just prefer if you'd store them safely and keep 'em away from retards and 4-yr olds.


Whenever someone mentions this, it is pointed out that a drivers license is only required to drive vehicles on public roadways.  No license is needed on private property.  Nor do you need to register any vehicles that are only going to be driven only on private property.

Do you still think that it would make any difference if you required firearms to be licensed and restricted in the same manner as are automobiles?

That's the way my dad told me, as well as the hundreds of Marines he instructed.
Have you ever won a Cassady Cup?
The people who use the expression may not be nuclear physicists, but they (not me) are quite likely to be able to shoot, and train others to shoot, proficiently.
In short, your estimation means f*ck-all, in this instance.

And they hate scary things...because Newtown.

Right...the people who cling to guns, bibles and large pickup trucks aren't the ones afraid of scary things...it's the liberals who are afraid of everything killing them...

Liberals own guns too. You look like a farking idiot when you pretend that it's only right wing republicans who own guns.


I never said that liberals don't own guns.  I know many liberals who own firearms, but the reason they own them, isn't because they are fearful for their lives.  The reasoning behind ownership is different.

Indeed - she did everything wrong and I tend to think that she is (was) a more accurate example of the typical gun owner. It's very fortunate that her stupidity killed only herself.
Because all 6zillion gun owners have accidents and not something like 1%

"at risk behavior"

Google it, read up on it. I firmly believe that the typical gun owner regularly engages in at risk behavior. Just because you treat your gun like a toy, and never succeed in hurting yourself or a family member, doesn't mean you're a paragon of safety. It just means the Gods have smiled upon you for another day.

Exactly.  Every single person who owns (or is within a 5 mile proximity of) a gun is on borrowed time.  Most (if not all) will be lucky to live to see the next hour.

Dimensio: duenor: just to say:
never accept or hand over a gun that does not have the action locked open, and without first physically inserting a finger into the chamber to verify there is no round in there.

Unfortunately, the action of my AR-15 will not lock open, due to the .22LR conversion kit.


That is because you have an aftermarket conversion that was never planned for when the original firearm was designed. Even so, you should have a method of locking it open - if it does not, then I would pull the rear pin from the receiver and open the top/bottom when passing it. still not anywhere near as safe as chamber locked back and mag out, but better than just hoping.

You can also use chamber flags.

I thought there were no accidents.

The "booger hook" line is VERY old. It isn't a joke - it is a tool so that you will remember it very very well. And it works. Like a mnenomic device, it helps the student fix the idea in his or her memory. I too was told this line, and by more than one coach.

In this case, sadly, someone did not follow it.

Just give 'em all guns and hope for the best? That should end well.

There is a difference between giving away free guns (like Eric Holder would do) and training kids how to be safe when using guns.
If you want to reduce accidents then you have to teach people how to be safe, and school is the best place to learn common skills.

Yeah, well they are now. Recreating the good ol' days doesn't actually bring the good ol' days back. And I think the issue of gun safety is best left private, up to the parents who (hopefully) have a far better grasp on if their kid can be a responsible gun handler than a school.

This is the result tho. An adult who's poorly educated on gun safety, brandishing a loaded weapon while inebriated.
Parents who don't own guns are unlikely to teach, or even think their kids need to learn, gun safety.
To make up for for lack of adults who don't teach their kids about things like sex, driving, or how to act safely around dangerous things, we teach those skills in school.

A license program specifically for owners won't teach the millions of non owners who come into contact with firearms later in life. Putting a eddy eagle like program back into schools means preventing accidents.
