    Yep, a Mensa candidate had a shotgun go off at a NC gunshow.

    Cases aren't bulletproof... Treat them as such...

    OMG !

    Always act as if every gun is loaded. Always. This is as much to blame on the holders of the show, as the owner of the gun. When they required the man show his weapon and they were putting a tie on the action, is when it went off.

    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.

    Not every gun owner is an intelligent and responsible person. Hell, even good people make mistakes.

    i shoot at a range that has a genuine road side size billboard in the entrance that says no loaded guns allowed on the range. if you present a loaded gun at inspection, they send you home.
    they send home 1 a day on the average.
    its because of all you shtf dorks that are afraid the world is going to end, thats why.
    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.

    When I go to the range my carry weapon is always loaded. And ALL but two guns at my house are loaded all the time. And thats because they were my Grandfathers and ive never shot them. What type of range do you go to that has to check every firearm before you can go shoot? At my local range I show up, they tell me what lane I have and off I go.

    Happened here in Ohio yesterday too. holy crap, and a quick google serch says Indiana too!

    http://www.cnn.com/2013/01/19/us/north-carolina-gun-show-shooting/index.html


    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.

    "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.

    A "new" handgun owner shot himself on the hand in the parking lot after leaving the Indy gun show.

    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.

    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.

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