Gun Safety

By Flea - Be A Survivor

Gun Safety is no laughing matter; there will be no jokes or cute and witty quips in this post. Gun safety is literally a matter of life and death. Every year a lot of innocents lose their lives or are maimed because someone refused to follow a few simple rules.

Gun safety is really just a bunch of common sense but some people just don’t get it. The ignorance of a few makes the rest of the responsible gun owners across the country look bad and it is starting to piss me off to be honest.

Lets not give the gun grabbers more "ammunition" by doing stupid stuff people. I firmly believe in our 2nd amendment rights as I am sure most of the readers of this blog do but a few bad apples can ruin it for everyone.

There are two rules, yep that is it. If you follow these two simple rules no harm will come to you or anyone else involving your guns.

The first simple rule you need to follow is to make sure your guns are locked up and OUT OF REACH of your kids. Do you love your kids? Do you want to see their brain matter all over the back of the bedroom wall? Do you want to have to look you neighbor in the eye after your little Johnny blew their kid into kingdom come? This is a no brainer and if a child is injured because you were too lazy to lock your guns up, you deserve what you get, in this life and the next.

The second rule that you would think would be common sense is, don’t point a gun at something you don’t want to kill, EVER. There is no such thing as an unloaded gun, period. Don’t wave your gun around while you are talking, don’t play secret agent man; don’t check your sight picture using Rex the family dog. If you point the gun at it you intend to shoot it…simple as that.

The two BIG rules will prevent most of the "accidents" that happen.

There are, of course, other rules like trigger discipline; keep your finger OFF the trigger until you want to shoot something. Be totally aware of the area you are shooting in, don't shoot at a target unless you are sure the area around and behind the target are safe to be shot at.

Gun Safety is not a laughing matter, it is a NO BRAINER.

...that is all.
