He's the only one professional enough so pay attention.
I'm the only one professional enough...
Was he hired by that principal in Florida to give this demo?
the vid is a little shady, I've seen it before and have a hard time believing he actually shot himself. I wonder if it hit the floor and rocicheted back and caught him in the leg.
Still, the bullet hit him no matter what.
still, he's an idiot no matter what (and probably unemployed)
I don't know what is worse. The fact that he was using "live" ammunition, or the fact that he was showing "children" how to use a gun!
I can't seem to get the movie to run here at work. How old are these children?
Yeah, I had a lot of problems with this video.. something just not right.
I'll admit, as a slight difference to the above, I took hunter's safety in school (7th grade) and found it an invaluable resource. I've never fired a gun since then, but I learned a good deal and have a lot of respect for firearms and their proper care/maintenance, etc.
And that's what bothers me about this video. When you go through something like Hunter Safety, about 3/4 of the time is spent talking about how dangerous it is, how you have to be careful, respect the power of the weapon, understand to check the gun carefully before doing anything with it, always assume a gun is loaded, never assume it's empty..
And yet, this baffoon walks around a classroom and talks about "this is the same kind of weapon 50 cent uses" yeah.. that's exactly it, romanticize the weapons by linking them to superstars instead of using that opportunity to really teach something.
He definitely didn't emphasize rule #1: always assume a gun is loaded.
Heck I learned to use firearms starting at the age of about 6 or 7, and have never shot anything or any body unintentionally. It's just paying attention and common sense generally, backed up with some technical knowledge.
Ricky Williams is teaching gun safety? And for the DEA?
On second look, I think that guy's been smoking what he should have been turning in as evidence.
I'm baffled as to how he managed to set it off. I guess he closed the slide and just decided to drop the firing pin. Not exactly sure why.
That's EXACTLY what I thought when I saw him!!!
I could have sworn I heard him dry fire a couple rounds before the accident? Maybe I was hearing things.
Even funnier was when he tried to show the class the assault rifle
just confirms what i always say. guns aren't idiots, people are idiots.
