What is it to simple to remember?
Just last night a guy shoots his wife, 3 rooms away, because the gun went off when he was cleaning it.
WELL NUMBER ONE GUNS DO NOT GO BY THEMSELVES!!
it takes some doofus putting their finger on the trigger.
Unless you have a book case at least 4 ft long & it is packed with books there is very little house in most houses that will stop a centerfire round. hell in fact there is little that will stop a rimfire 22.
What is so Hard to understand about gun safety??
1. Muzzle safe direction
2. Finger off trigger
3. Don't load till ready to use
4. Be sure of your target, & beyond
"All Guns are Loaded"
When cleaning you gun leave the action open, gun unloaded & no ammo in the cleaning area!
Follow all of the above and you greatly reduce the chance of being in the news because you were stupid.
