You know what else works?

Not pointing guns at your head:

Lee County sheriff’s deputies say a Sanford man shot and killed himself while showing friends the safety of his new gun.

The captain says Butler showed them the safety and how the gun would not fire. Johnson says after Butler pulled the trigger and it didn’t fire, he showed them the slide action, put the gun to his head and pulled the trigger again.

    Pffft, the Four Rules are silly and outdated, the Internet says so.

    There’s no Common Sense Clause in the 2A. But I’m sure there’s some Shyster out there who will approach the Family and tell them they can sue the Firearm Manufacturer because of a “Design Defect”. And Japete will use this as a screed for days on why Guns need to be banned.

    Mr. Butler was a six-time felon and a prohibited person.

    Our laws against felons possessing guns should have stopped him from even being in the same room as that firearm, no?

    Seriously though, considering his long list of larceny, felony B & E and numerous drug charges, one wonders exactly what he was planning on doing with that heater.

    While I suppose it’s possible that he was “just getting his life back together” and he’d just picked up a firearm for the IDPA matches he was about to enroll in, somehow I doubt it.

    Forget Rule 1, this is the reason for the rule about not pointing any gun at anything you are not willing to destroy.

    It is also the reason people get so upset when somebody at a range or a gun store lets a muzzle swing around to cover them. Sometimes those unloaded, on-safe guns go bang.

    Apparently, there is a cure for stupid.
