5 HURT IN SHOOTINGS AT GUN SHOWS IN OHIO, IND., NC

It's weird that this crap never occurred until Barry and his Nazis started pimping the the destruction of the Bill of Rights. This crap was intentional.

Guess that takes away the conservatives "talking points" that there's never been a gun show where someone was killed.

Sorry to see this happen. Gives the gun-grabbers some serious ammo, so to speak.

The low information voters will eat this up and the low information media will hype this.

We go along for years with no accidents at gun shows and then suddenly on "Gun Appreciation day" two events have accidents. Sounds a little suspicious to me. I strongly suspect Put up jobs by the dimwits. Expect more of this as they push their gun grabbing agenda.

Guns at gun shows are supposed to be, and usually are, unloaded. For two of them to have accidents in the same day speaks of deliberate carelessness on someone's part.

No, it doesn't. No one was killed at a gun show. Just 5 injuries.

The country is on a gun buying spree. Every gun show in the US is over-packed with thousands more than usual. That there would be some small number of accidents among these hoardes is statistically likely.

These incidents are so rare, that with 3 incidents on the same day, an old saying comes to mind.

One is happenstance, twice is coincidence, three times is Enemy Action.

on "Gun Appreciation day" two events have accidents.

THREE, not two.

MEDINA, Ohio (AP) -- Accidental shootings at gun shows in North Carolina, Indiana and Ohio left five people injured Saturday,

All reasonably close together too, on a national scale.

One of the incidents was a removed magazine with one in the chamber. Is there any reason that they can not produce a weapon that will not fire without the magazine in place? I see that scenario far to much. It happened here in Utah this past summer where a brother shot his other brother dead.

Just a thought.

These seem like very unrelated stories to me.

The first link describes business as usual in the officially decreed gun-free zone that is the vacation wonderland of Chicago.

The second story details a couple of accidental gun discharges at gun shows by a bunch of stupid newbies to the gun world attempting to cash in during the Obama induced gun panic. Really, you can’t fix stupid with some people and Darwin awards apleanty will be given will all the gun novices now trying to cash in.

My point.

The AP has been running the gun show accidents all day long.

AP has not run the 2 dead 5 injured in Chicago at all.

I had to search Chigaco local news to find it.

Which story has the greater loss of life?

Good point. I should have included the sarc tag.
Yes, I think the media skew the news all the time to push the anti-gun agenda selectively reporting and not reporting as it were.

I see that scenario far to much.

Two incidents that you can think of is "far to (sic) much?"

No mechanical safety feature will ever replace training and experience in proper firearms handling. The most basic safety training for semi-automatic arms is to know how to clear the action and know for certain that no round is chambered. More basic than that, for all arms, is to never point it at anything you don't intend to destroy much less point it and pull the trigger.

Don’t know why, but, reading the title of the thread, I wondered when it will be illegal to get shot.

As to the accidental shooting(s) at the gun show(s), I wonder if those happened also in the previous years, but, just, weren’t reported because it wasn’t the “soup du Jour” topic.

The day after zero signed his 23 EieiOs, my ears perked up and I actually looked at my radio in surprise when on the news they reported minor shootings in Albany. They don’t usually report that stuff.

You need to repeat that 53 more times. Once for each State. (I don't know how many cities there are in the US. Be grateful for that LOL)

It wasn’t just two incidents, it was three separate incidents in NC, Ohio and Indiana. And yeah....it’s just a little too obviousm too pat and conveeeenient for the anti-gun leftist agenda for these incidents to be real accidents. I wonder if the idiots that shot themselves were paid well to do so.

I remember this happened at a gun show in Louisville about five years back. Some idiot was bringing in a handgun that he'd ejected the magazine out of, but failed to clear the chamber.

It went off when he was removing it from the holster so the safety personnel could affix the security strip. The round struck the concrete floor and ricocheted up into the calf of the guy manning the ticket booth at the entrance.

I was about one hundred feet away, looking at a really nice 1911A1 when the round went off and just about everyone in the entire building (probably 20,000+) hit the floor.

There are plenty of autoloaders that have magazine safeties that do just what you say. I don’t care for the feature but it’s sposta be good for LEOs in the event of their weapon being taken from them they are supposed to be able to pop the mag out and disable the gun. The logic escapes me. As for the dead brother...too bad his brother is a moron.

I've been to the Indy 1500 gun show more times than I can count. If there were irresponsible gun owners there, they'd be put down in a New York minute.

And it's not just after Sandy Hook, we're talking the '90s.

These people like and know guns, and are extremely responsible with them.

In fact, the Indiana State Police are all over these shows.

I never bought a gun there, but I have bought knives.

And they check everyone who leaves.

I've been to the National Gun Day in Louisville numerous times (I plan on attending the first week of March) and that was the only time I've ever seen something like that happen. There were a couple of incidences of people fooling around with guns or acting stupid, but they were shut down very quickly and effectively by other attendees and/or booth owners.

Probably the scariest moment I've ever had involving a firearm was back in 1995-6 when I worked at a department store that sold old surplus military rifles. We were having a big sale on British Enfields so there were about three customers for each associate. I handed a rifle to this elderly gentleman so he could look it over and turned to ask the next customer what I could do for him. Out of the corner of my eye I spotted the first customer pull a .303 round out of his pocket, drop it in the chamber, and slam the bolt closed. Heart Attack!!! He was spinning that rifle all over the place, slapping it and wiggling parts to make sure it was nice and tight, all while it had a live round in the chamber. It seemed like an eternity, but was probably only two or three seconds, before I was able to duck over, grab the gun from his, eject the round, and hand it back to him, telling him to look at it that way. I honestly don't think that anyone else in the department even saw what he'd done, but that left me with a pretty good case of the shakes.

Please add: 100 people died, and a far larger number were injured, on the nation's roads on Saturday.

When, O when, are we going to have sensible restrictions on cars that are too small made with too little steel?
