first and foremost; i love shooting. however i believe that the glorification of irresponsible use leads directly to the lack of respect of firearms. and then to "incidents" where the knee-jerk reaction leads to completely unreasonable legislation such as the bayonet lug (but not actual bayonet) on my rifles being characterized as a key feature of a so-called "assault rifle". so let's see here:
always treat a firearm as if its loaded. you will never have to say your sorry. didn't really get that vibe from these pictures.
pictures with finger on trigger when obviously not ready to shoot....not smart.
posing while pointing firearm in random directly; clearly one can see the target and what lies beyond the target.
picture of alcohol and a firearm captioned "another good combination".....its usually illegal to be in the possession of firearm while under influence of alcohol or drugs.
100% lack of and eye protection.
there's a picture of something labeled a "clip" when it appears to have a feeder spring, hence technically it's a "magazine".
henrik's edit with symms where they are in the driveway waving a rifle in the air already puts them on thin ice for promoting irresponsible use of firearms. they're professional skiers that kids look up to and emulate. so don't give me some charles barkley-esque "i don't want to be a role model".
Yes that edit with Henrik and Symms was not smart, especially since it looks like they are out in the front yard in plain sight of neighbors waving a gun.
Yes, guns are not toys, but they are not elite tools only for certain people to ever use and shoot. Yes, with alot more experience, a person will start to learn all the safest ways to handle guns and shoot them (i.e. safety gear) but it is not 100% necessary every time you shoot a gun.
The MOST IMPORTANT THING to remember kids is just to always make sure your gun is not loaded until you are ready to shoot. If you aren't familiar with guns, always learn how to safely check if the gun is loaded, its not hard.
this is just me, but i really think you'd have to be there to watch how they were handled all the time... with the exception of that one edit haha.
but to say the shit you're saying about them is pretty gay. falling overboard like a pissy NRA member. having shot guns with experienced hunters, i have to say it wasn't much different than what they did. if i made a video of it of us just SHOOTING the guns, you'd prolly think the same thing. oh and eye protection isnt always required even at shooting ranges. just a smart idea to include them. having a beer while shooting guns isn't dangerous. they didnt appear to be anywhere near inebriated so stop being on their case about that crap. they were under the supervision of a gun owner, and like i said before, judging off a short video and some pictures isn't smart on your end. so chill the fuck out.
I think everybody needs to chill out a little nobody's dead or injured let them have some fun
