Every gun show I ever attended required all weapons to have zip-ties run through them to keep the bolt open.

When the owner of a 12-gauge shotgun was asked to remove his gun from its case. Somehow, the gun discharged, shooting two people in the hand and one in the right torso.

WHAT?! In the act of removing your gun from its case, you accidentally shot three entirely different people?! WTFingHell are you doing?!

Good question. Next question is "How the hell does the buyer not know basic gun safety rules?"

There is no ruining the joke, unfortunately, of the upright citizens brigade shooting people at gatherings of "responsible" gun owners.

Basically, we will all get shot if the derp continues in this gun insanity.

Reading comprehension people.

A. It wasn't "on display". He was entering the building and passing a safety check point asked to demonstrate the gun was "clear". Clearly he failed the check.
B. Apparently you don't understand how a shotgun works. Hitting 3 people simultaneously is quite easy. Notice how it says two of them in the hand and one in the torso. Depending on the size of the "shot", several dozen bb sized....well bbs.... are ejected at high velocity and scatter out the end. The diameter of the pattern being directly related to the distance from the end of the barrel. If the people injured were 20 or 30 yards away standing in a group it is quite possible to hit several at once.

Oh and clearly he's very stupid of course.

You mean a shotgun fires a bunch of bullets at once? Like an assault rifle? How are weapons like that even remotely legal? There's no way that's safe or legitimate for hunting or self defense. You could hit things you aren't even aiming at.

I haven't been this happy since those religious fools got their "10 Commandments" monument okayed by the courts after three years and only then discovered it was misspelled.

Go, gun nuts! Prove to everyone you're a bunch of freaking idiots who shouldn't be trusted with a burned-out match!

Somehow the gun discharged.
Somehow the gun discharged.
SOMEHOW the gun discharged.


....and that's the problem right there. Somehow THIS IDIOT OVER HERE BROUGHT A LOADED, CHAMBERED WEAPON, WITH THE SAFETY OFF, and then PULLED THE TRIGGER while picking it up.

Put him in jail for a lengthy time... accidental shootings should be treated the same as a DUI wreck resulting in attempted manslaughter charges or worse.

He had to make so many inexcusable errors for this to happen that I can think of no other recourse other than to make examples out of people.

This is a country where large buckets come with a warning that you shouldn't fill them with water and leave them around small children, because a child could fall in and drown.

If your average American can't be trusted with a plastic bucket, it shouldn't be a surprise when a hand or two is blown off at a gun show.

Shotguns fire multiple small projectiles over a wide area. More at 10.

You don't know much about guns or hunting, do you. Maybe do a little studying on the internet.
