Tweety- you should've kept on reading the article. You must not have gotten to the part where the author compared 60 Minutes interview with the "child shooter" as fake & scripted as those 'fake Sandy Hook actors'.
A caveat-I haven't watched the 60 Minutes segment, but I don't think posting an article from someone who, apparently, believes Sandy Hook was a government hoax to 'take our guns' is a legitimate rebuttal.
He also states that accidental discharges are 'something that just has to happen' and if you aren't being careful with your muzzle, well yeah, sometimes people get in the way of your bullets. But hey, unless you're in New York- they usually don't hold it against you!!
I've said before, I grew up around guns & currently own quite a few. (And I've never had a accidental discharge). My father taught us to have great respect for what they could do & yes, when we were young, don't touch them unless he was there. But we were also taught you don't ever point a gun at someone & you always treat a gun as if it's loaded.
I seem to remember a while back they tried to pass a gun safety law about trigger locks or something similar but of course, it was shot down. (No pun intended) I'm all for people being able to own guns- responsible people, with all the appropriate checks done & getting training to know how to use & care for them. We have way to many children accidentally killing other kids in this country, and it's the responsibility of the adults to stop it.
