This is a ND as far as I am concerned. I'm kind of very Black and White on these issues. If you cannot safely employ the tool at hand, don't pick it up and use it. Do not put youself or others (myself or my family) in harm's way. Ignorance is no excuse........................
Train, train some more, then train some more and practice ADULT safety!
Thank god the NRA offers many ADULT instructors who can correct this, if the individual decides to actually seek out the advice and training.
