    Bad - Dealer Shoots Self at Local Gun Show

    I drove up to go to this gun show yesterday morning and wondered what all the commotion was about. Turns out one of the dealers shot himself.

    I just don't frequent gun shows anymore, not that I ever did much at all before. Too many reasons not to..........too many people I don't know.......too many guns............too much ammo........and they always want me disarmed............ Too many strange people too.............

    Why would I need that............... Even the dealers are suspect!

    I pretty much stick with one LGS I know and trust!

    From the article:

    “He was taking the gun out to display it and pulled the trigger and it went off,” said Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Capt. William Boger.

    I frequent gun shows so i can exploit the "gun show loophole" the newpapers and media are always talking about! I go and purchase full-auto assault rifles, napalm, grenades, claymores, and stuff because at the gun show there is no background check and anything goes!!!!

    I watched the ambulance pull in, and was passed by the 2nd EMS vehicle (not an ambulance) as I was pulling into the parking lot. While I was there, I heard one of the vendors telling someone what happened.

    Overall, though, that wasn't my favorite show- there weren't quite as many 'interesting' guns at this one. Other than the Barretts..

    Please take everything I say with at least one grain of salt- I am a very sarcastic person with a very dry sense of humor.

    This could have been avoided by following the standard safety rules.

    There are serious safety issues there; Why was the gun not safety checked before putting it in the display?
