But what if they are too stupid to own a gun?

Tell me...why would ANYONE keep a loaded gun in the oven????


Man shot after loaded gun in stove explodes
By Kristi E. Swartz


The Atlanta Journal-Constitution



Antoine Boutte used to keep a loaded gun at the bottom of his gas stove.
That is, until he forgot it was there early Saturday and he and another man decided to cook some food, Fulton County police said
Boutte fired up the stove at his College Park home around 3:30 a.m. Saturday -- heating up the .40 caliber Smith & Wesson along with it, a police report said.
While the food was cooking, the weapon’s magazine started to melt in the gun well, the police report said.
This caused the spring – and bullets – to come out of the magazine.
The bullets started going off like popcorn.
Boutte’s friend, Christopher Henderson, opened the stove “to see what was happening,” the police report said.
That’s when part of a bullet casing flew out of the stove, hitting Henderson in the stomach, police said.
Boutte and another friend, Lisa Wells, took Henderson to Southern Regional Hospital. He was treated for his injuries, which police said were non life-threatening.

Unfortunately it's not illegal to be a dumb-ass. (Although it should be!) :salute:

Or if, like in Tucson, crazy, but not "officially" crazy. A letter to the editor had it right in that there should have been more people carrying, and they could have legally shot the nutcake right after he opened fire. In Arizona, the good guys should carry often to counteract times when idiots or nut jobs start shooting.

The tragedy would have been prevented by law abiding good citizens carrying.

Other places like CO deny your 2nd Amendment Right if you were just arrested for a crime that could have, if you were convicted, lost that right. You have to prove that the case was dismissed, wrong person, no conviction---which is total bull. Not all other states give a crap to inform others, and arrests considered convictions until proved by not the state but the person wrongly charged is punishment for crimes not committed. Guilty until you prove you are innocent. Also, if you got your Federal Rights Restored, they do not recognize it and you have to get a pardon from a state that you may have been convicted of a non-violent, victimless felony, even though your rights were restored. It is total crap to disallow law abiding citizens' rights this way.

It would have made it so I could bond with my son at a critical time, but instead he saw the unfairness of it all, and turned bad without the father-son bond of firearms training. Luckily, he is good now, and I got my CCW after 3 years of fighting for it, and the cost to this disabled decorated veteran of around $1,500 when none of this should have happened.
The state laws, as written, are a disgrace, and just molly coddling to the Brady bunch at the expense of good citizens.

Then you have the recent tragedy in Aurora, with a "brilliant" guy with no record, buying 4 guns in a month, then killing and wounding so many for no apparent reason. Why did he start buying the guns? He was in a PHD course, then dropped out and bought the last three guns, and turned into a Batman nemesis. If, on the form you have to fill out, it asked why you want or need the gun and how many you have bought recently, then verified, then it might have raised red flags. Even if there was someone in the theater with a concealed handgun, permitted, he or she would have been far outgunned by his AR15. Weird eyes or demeanor should be grounds for not selling a firearm. Nervousness, crazy eyes or expressions---he must have had them.
Then there is the spate of extremely violent movies, and video games. They should probably be banned, seeing they diminish killing and its consequences.
