"I was right there when it happened, he set it down on the table to be inspected, and when he set it down, it just went off!"

ah, no. guns don't just "go off" someone manipulated the trigger by improperly handling said firearm.

so, are "we" gun owners becoming dumber by the day, or was this "sabotage" by the pro-gun control crowd? "I know, we'll infiltrate gun shows all across the country, 'accidentally-on-purpose' shoot someone, then the whole country will want us to close down gun shows, and ban everything!!"

I don't believe in conspiracy theories like that though, just poking fun. I think the real issue is as stated, gun owners who don't know what they're doing, and are "prepared for SHTF at a moment's notice" by having their weapons chambered all the time while thinking the trigger is a handle.
A "new" handgun owner shot himself on the hand in the parking lot after leaving the Indy gun show.

gotta have a loaded gun at all times.
geeesh.
and too, hunters are too lazy to unload clean and rack a gun after a long hunt day. next time they grab the gun, its loaded.
this has been going on for decades.
heck, liberals werent the original threat nra use to write magazines articles on, it was on idiot owners that had loaded guns all the time.
I guess that means I'm an idiot bc I carry a loaded gun all the time.

Some people are just too smart to have to check a gun every time they handle it. They know it is unloaded, so it is a waste of time and effort.

It sounds like two people were brain-dead when handling the shotgun.

I would think gun shows would have a way to check firearms that prevent these things from happening... Like pointing the barrel ins safe direction before removing from the case, things like that.

What is #1 in the Ten Commandments of firearm ownership? Oh yeah treat every gun as if it is loaded.

The gun shows in my area do. They check before you can take a gun in. They even put a cable through the action before you go in.

These people are our biggest problem. Anti-Open carry people can bitch all they want. $*!t like this does more damage to our cause than a guy wearing his AR to J.C. Penny without incident. Stupid vs. committed to the cause? Leave stupid at home, thanks.

Great timing, on the day everyone was gathering to dawn support for gun rights.

I smell a rat in this story, because of the timing and possibly the event itself. Fishy.

Did you witness this? I ask because you don't zip tie a gun with the action closed. That makes no sence at all.
