It’s never a bad time to talk about firearm safety because no matter how much it’s talked about, there’s always an idiot somewhere who forgets the critical rules of handling a firearm.
I’m sure many of our followers have seen this crazy video because it’s been around for awhile, but this video illustrates how mistakes can turn fatal when you fail to exercise the four rules of firearms safety and treat every firearm with respect.
For reference, here are the four rules of firearms safety:
- Always assume guns are loaded. It’s that one time that you think otherwise that might result in a lost life.
- Never, ever allow the muzzle to be pointed at anything that you aren’t willing to kill or destroy.
- Never, ever touch the trigger until your sights are on the target or you are ready to fire.
- Never, ever take the shot without being sure of your target and what is beyond it.
Folks, this video is a perfect example of why it is critical that you always practice firearm safety if you want to stay alive.
