This guy needs a couple (or more) of gun safety classes before even thinking about CCW. I don't think the guy is a criminal, but someone who needed a basic education about weapons long before he bought one. Too bad this "lesson" will be very expensive and sting. It will probably mean the end to his education on firearms.

Cut him some slack. Given Wisconsin's long anti-gun stance in the realm of handguns and concealed carry, small wonder that many of her citizens are ignorant regarding gun safety. Until very recently, only criminals and leos had any carry experience whatsoever.

Stupidity with firearms involved is not just native to Wisconsin, it is all over. I know my state (West Virginia) has had it's share.
Yes, the Anti Firearm People will be all over this like a rabid dog, it is the kind of thing they pray for each and every day to "out" gun owners as whack jobs who do not need one at all. It shores up the belief that guns need to be banned because they are too dangerous for people to own.
Of course there are those who insist on texting with cell phones while driving, yet despite the laws in effect, people continue to do so, killing and maiming hundreds of people including themselves in the accidents that happen. Brady's don't call for a ban on Cell Phones, do they?
Thankfully, incidents like this are not that frequent and most people have some common sense when dealing with guns.

He might not be ready. Needs to get a brain first.
Sounds like he was going to attend a James Yeager class,were he was told it's completely safe to shoot with people downrange..
Guy doesn't know anything about guns so he thought he would try it out? That sure proves that common sense isn't so common.
