  •  Well we could come up with all kinds (8+ / 0-)

    of sensible precautions, that a lot of gun owners do know. It's the ones who think they are not going to have a problem. Just like that quick phone call or text behind the wheel.

    1) No alcohol in the last 6 hours. Much longer if you passed out from however much you drank. Or cold medicines, or pain killers, etc.

    2) No cleaning or handling a gun from dinner time to after breakfast.

    3) If the gun goes off, immediately figure out where the bullet(s) went, if you don't already know.

    4) Think of show and tell for guns as another form of Russian Roulette.

    5) Don't forget gravity and curiosity are always on.

    That's the short list. My brain is going to sleep...
