I didn’t know that, I’ve got to be more careful so I don’t shoot myself with my unloaded gun.

Actually for the first time, I agree with a liberal whackjob about guns.

ALL negligent shootings are done with ‘unloaded’ guns. That’s why you always treat a gun as loaded, even if you ‘know’ it isn’t.

Before I saw it I was expecting that she was talking about "unloaded" guns (as in, "I was sure it was unloaded before it went off") rather than unloaded guns, but when she finished by saying "whether it is loaded or not it still presents a threat" she proved to be idiotic rather than ironic.

LOL Whatta maroon.

Just because you want to treat every gun as if its loaded doesn’t mean the unloaded ones will kill you.

Maybe they’re shooting with chi energy... like this “karate master” that claims he can KO people without touching them:

You can’t be shot by an unloaded gun, but lots of people have been shot by guns that someone thought were unloaded.

Watch out for bows with no arrows or blowguns with no darts!

I’m worried about islands with too many people on them!

Whats an unloaded gun? Rule number one,,, all guns are loaded. Don’t pretend it’s true, deeply believe it is. Most “accidental discharges” happen with guns people thought were unloaded.

Treat all weapons as if they are loaded, first lesson I learned when I was a kid and got my first 22.
anyway, if it ain’t loaded, it is a good club LOL

Ditto.

First principle on shooting you learn in boot camp, or in yout first gun safety class. I learned it for sure before Dad let me have a BB gun.

I have trained under that “karate master” for MANY years and I am close friends with the Chinese guy who does the no touch knockout in the video Leon Jay. His father Wally Jay (RIP) was one of Bruce Lees instructors and closest friends. One of the guys who was knocked out in the video is my present sensei (8th Dan) and good friend. I would suggest that if you don’t believe it that you visit Reading PA and tell George that he’s a fraud. I’m sure he will be happy to demonstrate it for you. Or come to Phoenix
on Feb 15/16th to the Radisson cause Leon Jay will be giving a seminar there ... or my house cause he might be staying with me while he’s here. Knowing Leon he would be quite happy to demo using you as uke

The comments from that idiot councilwoman proves that you do not a functioning brain to live.

There might be an upside to the ability to shoot an unloaded gun, just think of the savings in ammo you could get.

could it be that this doorknob knows that most gun fatalities are caused by unloaded guns ( I did not know it was loaded )...

every gun is to be considered and handled as if it was loaded..

check it every time...

On the flip side, anyone who has been around guns long enough knows that it's the "unloaded" ones that speak up and bite you...50 years ago, my Dad taught me the importance of personally verifying a weapon is empty, no matter if I just watched him field strip and put it back together - my butt still hurts (nose too where it bounced off the floor when he put his foot up my butt for starting to strip it without checking...).

That said, it is absolutely true that you cannot be shot by a weapon that is truly empty.

Tell you what ... come to the Radisson in Phoenix on Feb 15/16th and I will personally demo for you. I won’t be hard to find ... I’m one of those fat middle aged martial artists

It's hard to tell who's dumber... the hysterical council woman or the people who distort her words in order to criticize her. There is plenty to criticize without being an alarmist a******.

She simply said that even unloaded guns can be dangerous, simply because guns assumed to be unloaded have killed people (usually by children.)

Carelessness and inattention is all around us constantly. And that creates potentially lethal dangers from just about every useful and essential tool of modern civilization that are all around us. Only a child or a true mental deficient would use that as an argument to support banning firearms or every useful thing in our lives, from electricity to kitchen knives.

Sure, the woman is an idiot, but distorting her words is not the best way to point that out.

Well if you would indicate where you are from on your profile I would be able to tell you where you can go to see for yourself ... I’m sure any DKI sensei would gladly demo it for you .... using you as the uke. BUT I suspect you wouldn’t know an uke from a nage ... I generally wouldn’t care about it but you insulted my art then my sensei then my best friends. So man up if you have it in you ... and put your money where your big mouth is otherwise STFU

“I generally wouldn’t care about it but you insulted my art then my sensei then my best friends.”

I’m sorry, but playing make believe that you can throw magic energy balls is not an art, and people who charge others money to tell them such fairy tales deserve to be ridiculed. If those are the types of people who you choose for best friends, then I really don’t see how you have any cause to get offended.

If you really want to prove this crap works, show me a video of someone using it in an MMA match or a martials arts tournament, not on gullible students who already have been conned into believing it.
