Gun Appreciation Day- Casualties

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

  1. For those of you not in the know, the first Gun Appreciation Day was held yesterday across 'Murica. The event has been set up and financed by various right wing groups, lobbyists, white supremacists and the usual bunch of people ranging from the paranoid to those who are eager to compensate for the fact that their penises aren't generally long or hard enough to be able to penetrate pubic hair, but who cannot can't afford an imported sports car.

    Welcome | Gun Appreciation Day | January 19, 2013

    I'm glad to report, everything went swimmingly, with reports of only five people being accidentally shot at three different gun shows.

    In Raleigh, NC, a guy NDed when pulling a shotgun out of its case and ended up shooting three people waiting in line at a safety check point.

    A dealer at a gunshow in Medina, OH, pulled the trigger on a pistol he just bought without carrying out NSPs, sending a round into the floor which ricocheted into another guy's leg and arm.

    And in Indianapolis, IN a guy shot himself in the hand in the parking lot while loading a .45 pistol he'd just bought.

    Good drills, boys and girls. You really helped show us all how guns aren't dangerous in the hands of law-abiding citizens.

  3. Tempting as it may be to chortle at the Americans, if gun ownership was as widespread among our chavmong classes as it is among their trailer trash, I'm sure we'd equal or excel their score.

  4. So in all that there were only three incidents, all weapon handling related, at least two of which should have known better. You get more crashes going to watch motor racing.

    so is that 5 extra shootings on top of the 132,000 casualties they normally get? if so then its proof that guns are dangerous.

    guns dont kill people bullets do - interesting that california takes details and a thumbprint of who buys ammo so they can reference it to see whether they are allowed to or not.

    12 billion rounds every year apparently.
  7. Ah yes, but they proved that guns are sexy and safe!
  8. And how many of the 2 dead and 6 wounded were at gun shows intended to show how safe guns are?
  9. As usual your understanding of what you are posting about on this issue is minimal.

    The 2 fatalities and 7 woundings occurred with illegally held weapons in Chicago.

    Despite crabtastic's attempt to link them none of the 3 NDs in the OP occurred at the Guns across America rallies, they happened at gun shows.
  10. Ban gun shows. People get shot at them.
