Some churchgoer in Tennessee decided, in a discussion about arming parishioners, to whip out his gun and show it to everyone. Then he shot himself and his wife. This line, though: He removed the magazine, cleared the chamber, and showed the gun to some of the men in the church. He put the magazine back […]

AL senate candidate Roy Moore, while on the campaign trail, decided to pull out his gun and show it to everyone. I cannot tell from the video but it appears he pulled the gun from a pocket. I hope he’s using a holster. But even if he is, he shouldn’t go waving a gun around. […]

Much less playing with it. Some folks in Cleveland were laying with a loaded gun that they thought was unloaded. It ended tragically. And was broadcast live on facebook. Pointing it at one another, at themselves, in their mouths. Here’s video leading up to the shooting: Christ on a crutch.

I caught about ten minutes of Neal Boortz driving this morning. He was on the radio quite obviously handling a firearm and talking about it. Seemed he unloaded a semi-auto, ejected a round, reloaded it and chambered it a couple of times. What you’ve done here, Neal, is increased the chance of putting holes in […]

Say you use your gun defensively, to some fanfare from the press who wants to tell your tale. Great. But let’s reconsider posing with our guns for the press. I’m rather a fan of Tam’s rule of stop touching it. I think it’s better if we kept our guns where they belong, in the holsters. […]

No details on whether it’s the booger hook on the bang switch, trying to catch a dropped gun, or failing to clear a chamber variety (the most common types, based on my experience reading the news). But it’s definitely got the “I was just cleaning it and it went off […]
