AKs & Cupcakes pointedly reminds us that gun safety is not just for the shooting range! EVERYWHERE you carry, KNOW WHERE it is, WHAT DIRECTION it is pointed, AND Make Certain it is SECURE!
This is exactly the kind of situation that anti-gunners are going to love to get their hands on. The “what-if’s” are astounding. I could see the rhetoric now: “if responsible gun owners can’t even keep track of their guns, why should they be allowed to have them?”
You don’t need a vivid imagination to realize what a stir this would have created if a child got a hold of the gun and not a responsible adult. Yes, I said responsible because who knows what kinds of people are out there and what they would to to get their anti-freedom point across. What an opportunity this presented. A shooting at a theme park? a DISNEY Park? Where the Imaginators (or whatever they call themselves) are working their asses off to create the most happy place on earth? Are you kiddin’ me? That scenario would have been PERFECT and exactly what would have been the nail in the coffin, so to speak.
Check your Six, Watch your BACK, JACK… and know where your potentially-lethal machine is. At All Times.
It’s for the children, and all of us.
