    While the NRA and their supporters have demanded the need for armed guards/teachers in schools, 5 accidential shootings at 3 different gun shows on the same day once again demonstrates the dangers associated with weapons.

    The actions of these gun owners merely confirms the fears of many Americans that keeping guns in the home or in schools is an invitation for tragedy.

    The spectacle of gun owners accidentially shooting each other no once, not twice but three times at gun shows on "Gun Appreciation Day” speaks volumes!

    There are dummies in every crowd.

    I own guns and am completely against gun control... but "Gun Appreciation Day?" Really? I mean they can be fun and you can defend yourself with them, but guns are objects that only exist because it makes it easier to kill things. And without them we wouldn't need them to defend ourselves. Should we really appreciate that? Really???

    It says "after the weapons went off".

    Weapons dont "go off". Stupid rednecks who dont know how to safely care for a firearm and and carry it pull the trigger and discharge the weapon.

    Stupid rednecks shouldnt hold guns, or ammo, but especially guns with ammo.
