    Ban jeeps. I want everyone to be safe, they have an inordinately high accident rate due to high center of gravity and poor handling characteristics.

    Ban minivans. They have a high passenger capacity, and an inordinately high number of people are killed in each minivan accident as compared to an average sedan. More people inside, more possibility of death.


    Ban 5 gallon buckets. Kids drown in them, and more true children (not 21 year old gangbangers, sorry, CDC, those aren't "kids) are killed by drowning in buckets than are killed by firearms.

    Ban 15 passenger vans. Combine the comments about jeeps and minivans and you've got a rolling nightmare on the highway.

    Limit horsepower and torque specs for motor vehicles. People are killed constantly by excessive speed, no need for anyone to be able to exceed the speed limit.

    Hell, let's just wrap everyone in bubblewrap, feed 'em a nutritionally correct IV solution and keep them nice and safe inside from cradle to grave. Make everyone a shellperson, life's just too damned hazardous.

    Ban roll on?

    ----------------

    One day I was ogling one of the new Boeing airplanes - It was supposed to be the largest passenger cargo jet in the world - and one of my pals looked at me and said, "Great, another way to kill more people in one accident......"

    Now, in an extended effort to keep the children safer while on the soccer pitch, players are no longer allowed to shoot the ball on goal.

    Taking shots on goal are now discouraged because of the danger that a child may be hurt from a direct hit or a riccochet.

    -----------------

    President Obama has also looked into banning 'shooting guards' and shooting the ball in youth, college and professional basketball games.

    Las Vegas is looking into banning crap games - Shooting dice can be deemed as an unsafe activity.

    Shooting the Breeze at the watercooler can be cause for suspension or termination at some businesses.

    "Shoot" as an alternative curse word will no longer be tolerated.

    The NHL hockey season was also in danger of being totally cancelled because the players sticks were not registered.

    Microsoft has been asked to remove bullet points from their PowerPoint software and all U.S. companies will begin to remove bulletin board from their premises to reduce the possibility of workplace violence........

    Not the kind of shootout you want to see a game end in?


    At least it wasn't sudden death?

    And then there are accidental shootings...

    http://news.nationalpost.com/2013/01...round-the-u-s/

    Five woundings at three gun shows. I'm not saying ban gun shows; just where do accidental shootings fit into the stats?

    Accidental gunfire at three gun shows around the United States on Saturday left five injured, authorities said, the same day that thousands of gun advocates gathered peacefully at state capitals around the U.S. to rally against stricter firearm limits.
    Three people were injured in Raleigh, North Carolina, at the Dixie Gun and Knife Show at the state fairgrounds, a quarterly event that usually draws thousands of people. State agriculture department spokesman Brian Long said a 12-gauge shotgun discharged as its owner unzipped its case for a law enforcement officer to check at a security entrance.
    Two bystanders were hit by shotgun pellets and taken to a hospital. A retired deputy sheriff suffered a slight hand injury.

    Long said the shotgun’s owner, 36-year-old Gary Lynn Wilson, brought the weapon to the show to find a private buyer. Sheriff Donnie Harrison said it was too early to know whether Wilson might be charged.
    In Indiana, police said a 54-year-old Indianapolis man was injured when he accidentally shot himself while leaving a gun show.
    State Police said Emory L. Cozee was loading his .45 calibre semi-automatic when he shot himself in the hand as he was leaving the Indy 1500 Gun and Knife show at the state fairgrounds. Loaded personal weapons are not allowed inside the show.
    Cozee was hospitalized for treatment. Police say the shooting was accidental and no charges will be filed.
    Meanwhile, authorities in Ohio said a gun dealer in Medina was checking out a semi-automatic handgun he had bought when he accidentally pulled the trigger, injuring his friend. The gun’s magazine had been removed from the firearm but one round remained in the chamber, police said.
    Police Chief Pat Berarducci said it appears the bullet struck the floor and the man was wounded in the arm and leg. Berarducci said the man was taken by helicopter to a Cleveland hospital. His condition was not immediately known.
    The gun rallies held Saturday coincide with President Barack Obama’s unveiling of a sweeping package of federal gun-control proposals in the wake of a Connecticut elementary school shooting that killed 20 first-graders and six educators last month.

    In the case of the shotgun, according to the comments on the local media's website, the shotgun was actually discharged by the officer who was supposed to be clearing it, not the owner of the firearm.

    Of course Police never make mistakes, and the media doesn't give any bias to the coverage.

    The dumb redneck just makes for a better story, so accurate or not, run with it.

    I can think of a number of ways it can happen, mainly involving a piece of the case hitting the trigger while opening the case, however, the Army's term for it is negligent discharge, which is completely accurate.
    Unless it's in a holster, there shouldn't be a round in the chamber, and only an idiot carries locked+cocked. That's why they make double action triggers.
