Chill Out On Gun Safety?………….Excuse You!

This past weekend on Instagram, I ran across a disturbing post from Heckler & Koch (a company that should be promoting gun safety, but instead want to wave their firearms in your face to distract you from gun safety violations).

This picture is a clear violation of two of Col. Jeff Coopers Universal Gun Safety Rules!!! But what is even more upsetting is H&K’s own comment in response to all of the people who pointed out this blatant disrespect for gun safety.

According to H&K, it is okay to violate gun safety rules when there is no magazine in the gun.  Well I think that is extremely careless and horrible advice.  If you are familiar with firearms, then you know that not all guns have magazine disconnects.  Which means that even without a magazine, a gun can still fire if there is a round in the chamber.  After reading their comment and several others (on both sides of this ridiculous argument), I posted this comment:

“Okay here’s the deal.  If you want people to “chill out” about gun SAFETY you are just as delusional as Everytown or any other anti-gun group.  You can’t just turn safe gun handling on and off.  It is something that must be practice and checked at all times.  That’s EXACTLY how NEGLIGENT discharges happen because people getting too relaxed with their safety.  If you have a problem with others checking this guy for a OBVIOUS violation of a gun safety rule I don’t want to be anywhere near you with a firearm because I value my life too much to be around people who do not respect the rules at ALL times.”

Let’s review Col. Jeff Coopers Universal Gun Safety Rules to see where this guy went wrong.

  1. Treat all firearms as if they were loaded.
  2. Never point a firearm at anything you’re not willing to destroy.
  3. Keep your finger off the trigger until your sights are on target and you have made the decision to shoot.
  4. Be sure of your target and what is beyond it.

Last time I checked, 50/100% is a failing grade!

It is our duty as Responsibly Armed Americans to be the beacons of light in this fight of pro-gun vs. anti-gun, and be forever vigilant to make sure that everyone who owns firearms are the safest people on the planet.  If you see someone handling a firearm carelessly BE THE ONE TO CHECK THEM, your life or the lives of others depends on it.
