    But you could do a better job of preventing stupid from having guns to accidentally hurt other people with.

    @Cheenoguy Not in this case. The idiot had a shotgun. You can have a shotgun in virtually any country in the world. Man is right. You can't cure stupid.

    What kind of Einstein carries a loaded gun to a gun show? Or loads one there in public? I was raised to treat every gun as if it were loaded or have it in a state where it can be checked (no mag, empty barrel, slide open).

    Obviously the shotgun shouldn't have been loaded. If you do something stupid and someone gets shot because of it you have proven you are an irresponsible gun owner and shouldn't be allowed to further endanger others.

    @Dan_Tien

    That is incorrect. Propaganda is defined as "information, ideas, or rumors deliberately spread widely to help or harm a person, group, movement, institution, nation, etc."

    @DomesticG Yes. They are highlighting this information instead of other relevant information to push their agendas. Their agendas are against a movement, a group, an institution and the entire nation. Keep an eye out for the disproportionate amount of 'anti-gun' articles, ads, and promotions in view today. I fear for the country. Its citizens have a widespread ignorance pertaining to the Bill of Rights, and as it gets destroyed, foolish people cheer it on.

    @AndrewEvans It is propaganda to insist that reporting news that really happened is an anti-gun agenda, rather than simply reporting the rather amusing news that some people who were observing the "Gun Appreciation Day" are dumbasses who apparently don't know the first thing about gun safety.

    "Always clear your firearm's chamber and magazine before putting it in a case. There is no excuse for negligence."

    That was your Gun Safety Lesson of The Day, brought to you by theJimbo.

    They did clear the firearms chamber...
    Buy squeezing the trigger and shooting other people. Those people will certianly appreciate guns, because they can sue and get tens of thousands of dollars from the gun show sponsors...

    Proving further that just because you can purchase a gun legally doesn't mean you are a responsible gun owner. I hope when these morons revolt against the goverment over regulations that they do so with their families far away because it isn't going to go well for them.

    Supports the statement: Stand behind me and I'll take care of this. Or better yet, when you hear a redneck say "hey, watch this", call 911 ...LOL

    @stepped_in_it if you're gonna be down on rednecks, get the statement right...it, "hey, hold my beer..." a statement I have made myself a few times :)

    @culinary Usually followed by "and watch this"....I try never to promote the use of alcohol when pointing out the misfortunes of a redneck! So, I PG-13 it!:-)

    In addition to hoping that everyone comes through this and recovers fully, I'm more disheartened that anything. I hate when some people make others look bad with their actions. Most gun owners I've known are responsible and safety conscious.

    Being from Ky I can honestly say that the only thing that suprises me is there were not more people shot.

    You have to take a written test to get your driver's licence and then prove that you can drive safely because you might kill someone. It should be the same for guns!!

    Let's see, 5 people are injured at a gun show where the guns are all legal and the gunowners are law abiding citizens. Meanwhile, 50 (probably more) people on the same day are killed in Chicago by guns bought illegally on the street by Liberal criminals. And who should we take the guns away from? Of course the Liberals choose the law abiding citizens. Wouldn't want to threaten the civil liberties of the criminals now, would we? Besides, they reliably vote Democratic.

    If any of the four fundamentals of weapons safety were followed, no one would have been injured:
    Treat all guns as if they are loaded
    Never let your muzzle cover anything that you are not willing to destroy
    Keep your finger off the trigger until the weapon is indexed and the decision to shoot has been made
    Know your target and what lies beyond

    Good muzzle awareness and trigger discipline go a long way in safety.

    News reporting is a business! Reporting on what attracts the rubes creates viewership! Viewership attracts advertisers! Advertisers pay money! News reporting is about money!

    We know why, it just proves it. Didnt see anything about the store clerk that was beaten locally with a hammer in critical condition, it was caught on tape even! Local news covered it only,More people die a year from hammers than from rifles, if they are so concerned about us why wasn't this hammer attack covered?
  • #22

    @Ashstop Do you have a link from your local newspaper on this story or does anyone else know about this except you and the hammer wielder and the victim?
  • #27

    @Ashstop When the home improvement industry has a Hammer Appreciation Day and the hammers start attacking, the national news will report it! Until then, just keep pounding it!

    HMMM.....paid to get shot at a gun show? Not the profession I'd want to get into (at least Not without some of that there Obamacare paid up front)...

    Oh yeah that has to be it. "hey bubba. Go stand over there and I'm going accidentally on purpose shoot your ass with buckshot so we take away those right wingers guns OK? And next would PULEEEZE wear a shirt under those overalls?"

    @jessejaymes I'd be thrilled to death if my plumber would just wear overalls! It'd help cover that "crack" he keeps promoting!!

    More manipulation. Forty-thousand (40,000) people a year SHOOT THEMSELVES OR OTHERS with NAIL GUNS. I wonder how many people shot themselves with NAIL GUNS on Gun Appreciation Day? These folks that were unlucky enough to get shot WERE NOT at the events. Three were at a Gun Show and were injured when someone was taking a shotgun out of a carrier to be inspected; 1 shot himself in the parking lot of a gun show; 1 gun store employee shot himself clearing a gun. I wonder how many DWI's there were on Gun Appreciation Day? How many bar fights? How many rapes? None of these things, including the accidental shootings, had a thing to do with Gun Appreciation Day. Just another CHEAP, DISGUSTING tactic used by ghoulish anti-gun zealots.

    As the gun nuts can tell you, "NO ONE EVER GETS SHOT AT GUN SHOWS!!!!" NEVER!!! Except every weekend when the cowardly bunch get together to guffaw over guns they have no business owning. "I need a gun to protect my family from the government" which eventually leads to "Moron killed after barricading himself in a cabin and demanding the government stop delivering mail demanding payment for services rendered"

    On Gun Appreciation Day, let's all appreciate the fact that the people who claim to be the experts can still manage to screw up the simplest thing. BANG!!!

    Most of these Gun Control Supporters are hypocrites for they are in favor of killing innocent babies through Abortion and depriving the handicapped their basic needs, which is Murder! They want to protect people but they are Pro-Choice many "Pro-Adam Lanza". Yes you are supporting the works of Charles Manson, Satan, Theodore Bundy, and John Wayne Gacy. Most people of Abortion Rights wants to control the population of minorities.

    I've never been a big fan of gun shows, finding them obnoxious and full of loud mouth know it alls. That's why I have a C&R license so I can order what I want online and have it shipped to my house. Infact the govenrment encourages folks to collect as many surplus firearms as they want provided they log their purchases with a bound book. I highly recommend one. You can even purchase 12 round CZ82's and the cool looking Yugoslavian SKS complete with gernade launcher at dealer prices, even get discounts for buying multiples!

    I would bet they were all Libs who wanted to try and prove a 'point', they are against
    gun ownership, so they wanted to pull another scare tactic.Yep, they were in cahootz...Just trying to make gun owners look bad. Typical..

    This would not even be news if the anti-gun lobby weren't trying to milk it for all its worth (nothing, actually) 40,000 persons a YEAR are either wounded or killed with NAIL GUNS every year, but that doesn't make the news unless the idiot in question shoots himself in the head and survives. There are careless people everywhere. If Mothers Against Drunk Driving has a special day, let us know how many Mothers get arrested for driving drunk that day. That would also be just as pointless and absurd.
