    Idiot reporters use the same verbiage with mean old SUV's. I'm seeing more and more headlines that "a red SUV ran over a woman..." or "the SUV just flipped and rolled 3 times..." Of course, the operator never has anything to with the situation.

    Aside from the "it went off" comments, seems to like two thugs with little if any safety instruction chambered a round, removed mag and pulled trigger.

    Or, removed mag, pulled trigger and realized that the weapon actually is deadly.

    Sounds and looks like a couple of thugs that don't know horse poor from shinola about the weapon system.
    Perhaps your sole purpose in life is to serve as a warning to others.

    I'll bet that the two intelligence-challenged individuals were "looking at", as in "handling" the gun, when it went off....

    Of course, to the anti-gun bunch, it makes perfect sense that an evil, deadly, treacherous device like a gun can be induced to go off by simply looking at it

    I suppose it would depend on that they were smoking before it went off. "duh, man I didnt touch it, wow, kewl I didnt touch it either."

    Yes, those evil guns have a reputation for doing that, especially the SBRs (scary black rifles).

    Most? I thought Oregon doesn't accept any unless something has changed. As a Washingtonian I can get an Oregon permit since I'm on a bordering State but my WA CPL is no good there.

    And I am totally in shock, fine upstanding young citizens that these guys are. I love this:
