What About This 2nd Amendment?
publiusforum.com via YouTube ^ | March 23, 2009 | Warner Todd Huston

Posted on 11/21/2010 7:36:23 AM PST by shibumi

An informative video from PubliusForum.com on the 2nd Amendment.


TOPICS: Cheese, Moose, Sister; History; Humor; Weird Stuff
KEYWORDS: 2ndamendment; armed; banglist; dangerous; nosafetyonaglock; safety; secondamendment
Warner Todd Huston (Yes, all three are his real names) of Publius Forum.com offers a mildly amusing history lesson on the 2nd Amendment.

For a fun project, let's see if FReepers can identify the basic rule of gun safety beig broken at 00:57 and 2:10 in this video.

Thanks to Warner for showing us how not to handle a firearm, while wearing the latest fashions from the Starfleet Janitor's closet.

Some fool with his finger on the trigger accidentally shot your pony.

Sorry.

A gun causes violence the same way a pencil causes mispelled words.

gun safety beig broken

The video I saw regarded the 2nd Amendment not gun safety. Did the messenger cause you to lose the focus of the message?

I didn't lose focus of your message because you mispelled being.

When handling firearms, it's ALWAYS about gun safety.

The rules apply even when making a video, believe it or not.

It was safe. He filmed this from the middle of an artillery range, so a misfire in any direction would have been “downrange” (or uprange, as it were).

So a cooking show where the star uses a turkey fryer in the living room would be cool with you, long as the turkey comes out juicy and tender.

Exactly. People who don’t observe rational gun safety rules give ammunition to those who want to strip our rights. They always point to accidents and such as excuses to take our rights away for ‘our own safety’.

Don’t be hatin’.

Retro is cool, Starfleet shirts especially.

Oh, you were talking about the mishandling of weapons?

Never mind.

turkey fryer

Your turkey fryer analogy is weak beyond description. The video was not about gun safety instructions.

If you were to extend that to your turkey fryer analogy then the video would show a turkey fryer and no human involvement.

I am now better able to understand this observation. Wise men speak when they have something to say. Fools speak when they have to say something. ---Plato

So you go directly to ad hominem? What part of personal involvement doesn’t come into play when someone places their finger in a trigger, you dork? (Sorry about the ad hominem, Einstein).
