  •  yeah, the dude in silverdale wa (3+ / 0-)

    who was active duty military...he was totally untrained.

    the problem with "responsible gun owner"ship is that no one meets that bar.  because even military personnel, trained officers, and security don't meet that requirement when they're the dipshits fucking up.

    you throw them to the wolves as being specific cases of idiocy (that's on them) instead of seeing that as symptomatic of a larger issue which is...guns are not safe.

    •  at what point did I say that (0+ / 0-)

      training absolves you of ever being a fuck-up?

      training should help you understand what/what not to do.  It's no guarantee.  It's not immunity.

      If you do something careless, you're are being irresponsible.  If you've been properly trained, you should know the difference between what is proper and what is careless.

      If the firearm goes off 'accidentally'/negligently while you're in control of it.  You were irresponsible.  Period.  It did nothing without you.

        but the person hit by your stray round is know...........dead.

        Oops. Sorry. My bad.

        If the pilot's good, see, I mean if he's reeeally sharp, he can barrel that baby in so low... oh you oughta see it sometime. It's a sight. A big plane like a '52... varrrooom! Its jet exhaust... frying chickens in the barnyard!
