A man once suspected of killing his twin brother, and was tried for the crime, resulting in a hung jury, and not retried, was killed, accidentally, with wounds somewhat similar to his brother's.
The gun was apparently his own, and he have it to his friend to look at. Friend, in jest, pulled the trigger, thinking the safety was engaged. Oooops!

1. All guns are always loaded.
2. Never let the muzzle cover anything you are not willing to destroy.
3. Keep your finger off the trigger until your sights are on the target.
4. Be sure of your target and what is beyond it.
Don't hand anyone a loaded weapon. Add that to the "That'll Learn Ya" file
It may be that your sole purpose in life is simply to serve as a warning to others.
Irony at its finest.
"He went on two legs, wore clothes and was a human being, but nevertheless he was in reality a wolf of the Steppes. He had learned a good deal . . . and was a fairly clever fellow. What he had not learned, however, was this: to find contentment in himself and his own life. The cause of this apparently was that at the bottom of his heart he knew all the time (or thought he knew) that he was in reality not a man, but a wolf of the Steppes."

Kind of fits the mantra I have always told my kids and other young people:
Don't do stupid things, don't go to stupid places and don't be around stupid people.
(for new terminology you could use "sketchy" for stupid)

The line of hard men willing to rain violence on our enemies so you can sleep warmly and safely in your bed at night continues. That's what we do. Semper fi.

Sometimes being ignorant of the current situation can be very costly.
Don't let facts cloud your judgement
Although not PC anymore, I really do think that firearms safety should be brought back into our schools.

Apparently the Owner (Firee) was an Illegal, so he probably didn't get to attend any of our fine schools growing up. But may have a few Generations enjoying a free education now.
And I can only imagine that the Dude on the receiving end (Shootee) probably didn't bother to check his weapon before handing it off to the Firee and falling victim to his own ignorance.
Can you imagine how many times these incidents are going to be replayed in the future when our children get older, because they are no longer expected and are frowned upon for even touching a handgun. Much less have any training in the Art of Safe Firearm Handling.
Shootee? Maybe that should be Deceasedee!
I bought my 3 years old Grandson a Cricket 22 single shot rifle the other day to give to him when he gets older. In case they outlaw all firearm training by the time he gets old enough to have some.
What have you done to prepare for the end of civilization as we know it?
