Idiots With Guns #32
"It wasn't loaded."
"I bet they used a remote control for that shot."
"How do you know a person was holding the camera?"
"It could have been done with mirrors."
"Don't worry, it wasn't loaded."
"He's my ex-husband, it's OK."
There are hundreds of ways to rationalize doing the wrong thing. It's easier to just not do the wrong thing.
The purpose of Idiots with Guns is not to humiliate, but to educate. Over the years we have seen photos of people who, upon picking up a gun, just cannot resist pointing it at something they should not, with their finger on the trigger. This is usually the camera, another person, or themselves. These photos are often difficult to google up, because of the pages they are shown on. If you have archived any of these photos, feel free to send them in to me.
The Four Rules
1. All firearms are loaded
2. Never let the muzzle of a firearm point at anything you are not willing to destroy
3. Keep your finger off the trigger unless your sights are on the target
4. Be sure of your target and what is behind it
