Secret Master of All Flatulence: eyeq360: Dry firing a gun will later lead to steam cleaning a carpet. Odds are, Stanley Steamer will not be removing pee and poo from your carpet, but more likely blood and brain, with the occasional bits of bone and hair.Accurate headshots are notoriously hard to make, especially on a moving target.
Dimensio: eyeq360: Dry firing a gun will later lead to steam cleaning a carpet. Odds are, Stanley Steamer will not be removing pee and poo from your carpet, but more likely blood and brain, with the occasional bits of bone and hair.Are you not aware of what a human body typically releases upon death?
Secret Master of All Flatulence: This is something that always amused/confused me. An awful lot of the pro gun-control people generally support abortion on demand and assisted suicide. An awful lot of the anti gun-control people oppose abortion and assisted suicide. Does neither subset of those groups see the contradiction?
R.A.Danny: Doc Daneeka: The word has lost all meaning.I generally ignore your posts as well. You really don't bring anything to the table that reasonable people can use.
CasperImproved: Two friends playing with a third friend's gun (owner at fault for allowing).After friends play with gun, they did not observe owner load same gun, then put it back on the table. (owners fault).Two friends play with the loaded gun with assumable results (owners fault).Were the two friends stupid? Yes.But who was criminally negligent and ultimately responsible for this tragedy?
imfallen_angel: Anyways... you appear to miss my point anyways and I have better things to do.
Smidge204: Secret Master of All Flatulence: Just like there's no attempt to try to identify criminals and morons before they're allowed to vote.Fun fact: Over 5 million US citizens do not have the right to vote because of their criminal record, or because they are currently in jail on a felony conviction.That's a great example you provided, but probably not for the reason you thought it was.=Smidge=
jst3p: imfallen_angel: Anyways... you appear to miss my point anyways and I have better things to do.I sure hope so, because "not making sense on the internet" is a pretty pointless hobby.
stevarooni: Carn: Mandatory gun training, not in school, use the classes provided by the NRA but in addition, you must pass a written test and as well as a safety test on a range. If you want to do like for driver's ed and have an after school class for kids who are 18 I'm fine with that. You should have to retake both every 5 years (I feel you should have to do the same for driving). We should have a no gun list which doctors should be required to add people to if they've been diagnosed with any serious psychotic disorder, in addition to felons, and when signing up for these tests would be a good time to check a person against this list. That would be a start. In addition I would be in favor of either an insurance requirement and/or much more severe penalties for people who are responsible for this kind of negligence.Ah, you're talking about to own a gun...I think that mandatory safety training (with optional firearms practical), in-school, should be a requirement for graduation. But just the one time; just as people aren't required to take a poll test to exercise their right to vote. A list of felons and involuntarily committed/deemed incompetent folks already exists for background checks, though unfortunately it isn't as regularly updated by all states as it ought to be (Virginia improved their reporting after the VTech murders).Insurance requirements are kind of silly. Most car insurance carriers will refuse to cover damage caused by the car in the knowing commission of a crime. The penalties for negligence like this are pretty severe, if they're enforced. In this case, for some reason the cops seem to think that this idiot isn't responsible for her own actions. Usually it takes a judge to assign mental incompetence, and a caretaker would be assigned, but apparently that's not the case here. :-P
Frank N Stein: Come at me bro.[img.fark.net image 775x945]
Frank N Stein: So farkers. Santa bringing anything boomstick related for Christmas? I'm probably just getting some ammo and such. Last year though, my old man gave me his old Winchester 94 that he won in a card game in the 70s. It's a lever action gun, so he wrapped it up and hid it in the corner like A Christmas Story.
Carn: Of course - I don't like the idea of mandatory safety training for all, because some people don't want anything to do with guns and that's their right too.
Carn: A compromise could be a renewable safety certification like I mentioned that you are mandated (although not enforced) to have. Then if you are found guilty of some kind of negligence like the person in this article, you get triple the penalty if you do not have a current certification. That might be a way at least to cut back on these kinds of "accidents".
HeadLever: No one that I know is resistant to the idea of keeping violent criminals from guns.
Quantum Apostrophe: But overall, having a gun in the house makes you safer. Sure, once in a while there are tragic unavoidable accidents like these, but nothing's perfect.
luniz5monody: Am giving a Mini-14 to the In-laws.
cptjeff: Then why the hell does the NRA and whatnot oppose universal background checks? They're fighting to keep the loopholes that allow violent criminals to walk into a gun show and just randomly buy a gun in a private sale open.

ZeroCorpse: That said, I am still kind of hoping that some day I can move to a country with stricter gun laws and better health care for all.
ButtercupKitteh: i didn't realize you could get out of murder if the victim's family didn't press charges. I've seen articles about people killing people in self defense and it still being a murder case of some sort.Shouldn't the owner of the gun here be charged with something at least? Like not having his weapon secured properly or something.I'd also like to know why the hell they decided to load the gun after it being empty apparently all day, what were they planning to do with it?
R.A.Danny: They fought against the part where the checks were going to be used as de facto registration.
R.A.Danny: ZeroCorpse: That said, I am still kind of hoping that some day I can move to a country with stricter gun laws and better health care for all.Well, bye.
demaL-demaL-yeH: R.A.Danny: They fought against the part where the checks were going to be used as de facto registration.So farking what? The farking Founders did it with arms (Return of the Militia).
ZeroCorpse: See if I speak logically in your favor again, jerk.There you go.
ChaosStar: That's either a very detailed replica or you had the flash suppressor painted orange... why exactly?
Secret Master of All Flatulence: cptjeff: Then why the hell does the NRA and whatnot oppose universal background checks?It's extremely simple: It's to prevent a backdoor "Universal Gun Registry". Gun registration is a necessary precursor to gun confiscation. And before you say "that's never happened!" look at California's SKS Registry, and what New York is doing now with their post Sandy Hook" idiocy. Gun owners have been screwed over and over again by the anti gunners, who say one thing, and then push laws that do something else entirely. That's what lead to the whole "no more compromise" bit on the part of so many gun owners. Gun Control advocates generally follow the principle of "slowly boiling the frog", but their general goal is to ban all guns, period. That's why they're pushing the "assault weapons ban" stupidity, when the guns in question are generally used in something like 1/2 of 1 percent of crimes involving guns. It's an attempt to condition people to the idea of taking away all guns, period.
metatronarchetype: demaL-demaL-yeH: R.A.Danny: They fought against the part where the checks were going to be used as de facto registration.So farking what? The farking Founders did it with arms (Return of the Militia).Registration is step one of Confiscation.
Hung Like A Tic-Tac: Like the government couldn't do that now if it wanted to.
Secret Master of All Flatulence: ChaosStar: That's either a very detailed replica or you had the flash suppressor painted orange... why exactly?It's not painted, it's powdercoated, and I did it because it's legal and points out some particularly dangerous stupidity in the Federal Statutes. Don't worry. It simply screws off, isn't normally kept on the gun, and it's never on the gun when it's being fired, since powdercoating is heat-based, and it'd damage the finish on the flash supressor if it was on it when it was fired.FTR: Any moron can go into almost any drug store and buy a jar of blaze orange fingernail polish for something like $5 and paint the muzzle of a real gun blaze orange. It's not even illegal, at least where I am. You simply cannot assume that something that looks like a gun is actually a toy because the last 6mm of the barrel is blaze orange. In fact, it's dangerous as hell to do so, as that picture demonstrates.
