    let's blame the manufacturer of the rifle since it's design was clearly flawed.

    Sorry... but I am damned tired of people pushing blame off to someone else, and even more tired of people that try to stir up resentment for our second amendment rights by clearly misdirecting attention from the real incident to so oh so scary bull-puckey hypothetical situation.

    But feel free to igmore me and anything I might point out because I clearly had too much coffee this morning
    Bruce: If I didn't know better, I would think you were PO'd about the blame game going on. I don't recommend decaf, just 3 fingers of Jack Daniels in a 55 gal. drum. That'll do the trick! Anyway, for what it's worth, I agree with you.

    Imagine you are the CEO of a big box store struggling with whether or not you will allow concealed carry in your stores.

    You know it will make no difference to the criminals either way. You already have in place a policy to respond to armed robberies. You don't intend to rely on armed customers to carry out that policy.

    So what does allowing concealed carry in your store do? It increases the risk that someone with a concealed carry permit is going to make a mistake and "accidentally" shoot one of your customers. That is probably a risk you aren't going to be willing to take.
    You can blame the 4King lawyers for this type of irrational thinking... I would have expected no less coming from you...

    So now we'll need another 6-10 new laws, regulations, and restrictions. Perhaps an exam to indicate proficiency and another certificate we need to carry. Of course this will cost the gun owner more $$ and have a 1 year expiration date so we will have to retest each year. We will all be required to carry firearm insurance at another cost incurred by the gun owner.

    2 simple, basic, fundamental, and sensible gun handling techniques were ignored by multiple people...

    Carry it concealed and no one is the wiser. The CEO will never see it...

    Hmmmmm... don't know about that 55 gallon drum... but the 3-fingers of Jack... now THAT is an idea I can live with

    If I'm the CEO of a big box store contemplating store policy on concealed carry I'm thinking about the safety of my employees and my customers. If people supposedly familiar with firearm safety can't keep from accidentally shooting themselves at events focused on firearms, then maybe the last thing I want is armed shoppers in my store with "one in the chamber" on their hips.

    Perhaps I'll just do what the gun show operators do, and require all firearms to be unloaded and zip tied before entering. If that policy is good for a gun show, surely it must be good for big box stores.
    Again, here you are being a true friend of the right to keep and bear arms. Infringing on the right one ridiculous scenario at a time...
    In the imaginary world that you live in, you would have no one except yourself able to be armed. Another dictator in the making. Perhaps we should pad the corners and take the edges off of the world just to make it safer for you? Maybe the last thing in the world we need is you walking around with a gun, never mind one in the chamber...

    Logic and Reasoning, Perhaps you need lots, and lots, and lots, and lots, and lots, and lots, and lots, and lots, and lots, and lots, and lots, and lots, and lots, and lots, and lots, and lots, and lots, and lots, and lots, and lots, and lots, of coffee...

    Rights trampling...

    That's it??? No rationalizing your reasoning?? No expanding on the idea that a total handgun ban in any public place would be a real benefit to society and make the world safer?

    Now that's priceless...

    Definitely an issue. It's not possible to check the fit of a handgun in a holster with the handgun tie-wrapped... Can't assume the gun is unloaded just because everyone was cleared at a checkpoint. ALL guns must be considered loaded at all times!
