    Safety is NO Accident
    Any handling of a gun requires:

    No Alcohol or Drugs.

    Not Being Tired.

    No Distraction.

    No Children unless trained Plus supervised by another trained adult.

    Enough cleared area to place gun, tools, etc. and use properly.

    Location that keeps people from entering without notice or noise.

    Extreme care in setting down, picking up and handing off.

    The direction of the barrel should be towards a device, wall, floor or ground that can trap a bullet used in the gun.

    •  You mean accountability? What a concept! The NRA (3+ / 0-)

      and their unhinged gun Cult want all the sugarrights and none of the caloriesresponsibility.  When asked how holding them accountable is a violation of any right they always tell us about Germany, the slippery slope, and that nothing will work.

      I don't want to take away anyone's guns, I just want them held accountable for any injury done with them and for that we need licensing, registration and full criminal background checks (plus anyone with a gun that does something stupid with it loses the right for a period and until they prove the can do it right).

      Then they came for me - and by that time there was nobody left to speak up.
