Uh, yeah, even if it was "loaded", if she pulled the trigger like that -- nothing would have happened.

There are safeties on those things for a reason -- actually, THAT reason.

And we're done here.

To be fair to her, the prop guy put the nail gun basically upside down. Maybe it wouldn't have fit on the table, hard to say.

What the hell not demonstrating the gun first, live AND before the show.  That was stupid.

/as mentioned above safety's and all that.

First of all since it seems there was a "magic trick" happening there probably wasn't anything even in the nailguns or they had been rendered harmless.  Secondly, on professional film sets, anytime there's any hint of danger there are procedures and safety demonstrations, and a crew in charge of ensuring safe usage of anything that shoots, blows up or can maim you.   I guess television morning shows don't have that kind of mentality.

What a man typically thinks:

"Hmm, this seems to be a power tool of some kind. Is there a label on it? No. Hmm, well there's the handle and a trigger here so I should hold it this way and...aha it seems to be some sort of projectile tool. Ahh. I think this is a nail gun. Duh. OK, there we go. That looks right. Some dipsh*t put this on the tray upside down, farking asshole."

What the type of woman that works on these shows thinks:

"Wow this thing is heavy, it's very orange. Is this a handle? I don't know. Should I ask a man? No, no then they'll all laugh at me. Jesus that b*tch in the front looks skanky, I can see her underwear. OK focus, focus. People are starting to stare at me funny. Is it my hair? No my hair looks good. I think. No, no, it has to do with this thing I'm holding. That stage guy told me what it was earlier, what did he say? That guy is fat he needs to lose some weight. Focus, self. You are looking dumb on TV and people are starting to laugh at you. Wait are they shouting at you? Yes, attention! Finally, they are paying attention. Ham it up girl! There you go they are all pointing at you now. Make them laugh, maybe you'll get on a blog somewhere and your career will take off so you don't have to sleep with that smarmy producer again."

It must be very disconcerting for a mind reader when the thoughts coming from the subject are all backwards.

For those of us that don't know, how does the safety feature on the nail gun work?

Watch when he puts his hand up to the muzzle of the nail gun, and you'll see the forward protrusion slide back into the housing. The nail gun won't fire unless that little doohickey is slid all the way back (i.e. unless the nail gun is pressed firmly against something). You can't just pull the trigger and use it like a regular gun.

"Jessica Rowe cried out and steered the powerful tool away from her co-host's face. "

Hmm... that almost sounds like something I'd like to watch more than this video!

Yeaaahhhh, but in this particular case, with this particular woman, I think he's pretty much spot on. She seems........ vapid. My wife would have wanted to take that thing away from her, then slap her and tell her to go sit down.

Curiously enough, the only thing that went through the mind of the nail gun as it was bbeing held was "Oh no, not again." Many people have speculated that if we knew exactly why the nail gun had thought that we would know a lot more about the nature of the Universe than we do now.

Well that sucks. By the way, didn't first Lethal Weapon movie have a nail gun shooting scene?
