    Which part of "... shall NOT be infringed..." confuses you?

    By the way: The manual safety on my Beretta 9000s completely disenguages the trigger. It pulls without resistance or interaction with other "firing" linkups.

    Under that stipulation, perhaps a redefining of "safety" (above) might be in order.

  4. Maybe the term Manual Safety would be the correct use!

    One crook shooting another? Tragic yes but only goes to show if you are a crook and stupid it probably won't end well for you.

    Could a gun safe have avoided this? Possibly yes, if it had been a large one that they could not simply haul away and open later. Would this guy eventually end up in prison on something else? Would have been just a question of time, IMHO.

    But, in the wrong hands this is what happens.

    I'm not bashing Glocks, but with no Safety,Accidents like this are an reality. I feel for both Families 2 young men are now gone.

    I will say a prayer for both Families.
    If this is your reason for not liking Glock, then (without meaning to be offensive) you rely entirely too much on a mechanical safety to keep you and others around you safe, and not nearly enough on proper gun handling, muzzle awareness, trigger finger awareness and general firearm safety practices.

    Regarding the felon and his "mishap" I feel no sorrow or pity.

    I reckon you probably already had a notion or two ;)

    But how many times have mechanical devices failed on their own, or not been used properly throughout history? Too many to count. Just sayin, the best way to keep a gun safe is with your head.
    And I am in no way saying that every gun owner has a good brain because many do not. For them, a mechanical safety would help (not solve the problem, just help), but that requires using a brain as well.

    The guy in the story was an idiot and could have just as easily fired off anything else since he did not even bother to check if the gun was loaded. Blaiming this on the lack of a manual safety is a bit far-fetched.
