NO NO NO Stupid People Should NOT Have (or even shoot) Guns !!
I realize that these videos are supposed to be funny, but in some of these instances, I blame the person who was supposed to have given these folks the proper training prior to them picking-up a gun. And yes, alot of the folks were just plain stupid and they were VERY lucky that they didn’t accidentally blow their own heads off.
If you have never used a firearm before, I cannot begin to stress how important it is, getting the proper training BEFORE you pick-up a weapon. I know I sound like a broken record, but PLEASE…PLEASE…get the proper training BEFORE you decide to pick-up a gun and shoot it (you’ll thank me later after you come home alive). I think that videos like the one below, should be shown to every single person who has never fired a weapon before, it’s the perfect training tool as of what NOT to do when handling firearms.
Here are some basic rules for firearms safety:
1. Always Keep The Muzzle Pointed In A Safe Direction.2. Firearms Should Be Unloaded When Not Actually In Use.3. Don’t Rely On Your Gun’s “Safety”.4. Be Sure Of Your Target And What’s Beyond It.5. Use Correct Ammunition.6. If Your Gun Fails To Fire When The Trigger Is Pulled, Handle With Care!7. Always Wear Eye And Ear Protection When Shooting.8. Be Sure The Barrel Is Clear Of Obstructions Before Shooting.9. Don’t Alter Or Modify Your Gun, And Have Guns Serviced Regularly.10. Learn The Mechanical And Handling Characteristics Of The Firearm You Are Using.
