That's of course if you can read the link.
Every one of those instances should not have occurred if the people handling the weapons had even the most basic understanding of what it is that they where doing.
The worst however is that a Gun Dealer removed a Magazine from a Pistol and then without clearing the breach pulled the trigger and then wondered why it went Bang. That is inexcusable no matter what the person was told unless you can see light down the barrel through the breach it's loaded always loaded and the safety is in the Off Position. Doesn't matter who you are that is basic safety with any firearm.
The Darwin Award should go to the guy taking a Shot Gun to sell and shooting several people when he was asked to remove the firearm from its case and undoing the zip caused it to discharge. Not only was it loaded which there is no excuse for to begin with and that the safety was not set but he handled the weapon so roughly while undoing the zip that it discharged.
Those 3 are perfect examples why Gun Control is a Necessity, there are far too many Idiots with firearms in their hands shooting each other without intent. Unfortunately these people remove others from the Gene Pool never themselves and they carry on about their God Given Right to carry a Firearm.
They are Dangerous and need limiting and what's wrong with trying to protect people from others stupidity? You loose an eye when your shot accidentally anywhere no matter what you still don't have the use of that eye any more and it makes no difference if the person who was responsible for shooting you meant it or not. Of course the lucky ones die outright and don't have to put up with the results of the foolishness of others but even that has a Massive Cost to Society which they simply can not afford.
This is what I don't understand it's perfectly acceptable to Limit Motor Vehicle use but not firearm ownership. One can not be carried around easily and accidentally used where as the other can and it's considered as unacceptable to place any limits on these peoples stupidity. You may as well allow Free Rein with everything and then wonder why you go extinct. At least that way you are doing less harm to the remainder who are not directly involved in your arguments.
