    My Gawd - Literally thousands of non-fatal car accidents occur every DAY and they don't even get local coverage. GMA was all over these gun accidents this morning! Evil media wants us to think the gun menace is everywhere.

    Welcome to sensationalist media.
    Stories about guns are a Big Thing right now; it draws ratings. TV Stations - even the news - live and die by ratings.

    If this occurred before Sandy Hook you'd never hear about it, except maybe an anecdote about how strange it was and all these occurred on this particular day.

    Come on...people at a "Gun Appreciation Day" shoot themselves and each other and it's not supposed to be reported on? :lol: The irony is too rich to pass up!

    Dude you need to get a clue. The media will run ANYTHING if they think it will net viewers.

    For over a week I had to keep hearing some stupid fucking story about that dumbass football players dead fake girlfriend.

    Yeah right. If there's a car crash in the parking lot at a NASCAR race, does it get national coverage?

    I agree with Glensather, but your obsession over cars, speeders, and drunk drivers makes it hard to take you seriously.

    Sure, just wait for some crazed "fan" to go ballistic and drive his vehicle through a family or five or something because Kevin Harvick didn't finish first.

    Then you'll hear all sorts of stupid things like, "Man Forgets to Put Parking Brake On, Injures 5" and the like.

    Looks to me like there are some DUMB ASSES out there who need some remedial gun safety training. What a bunch of idiots. These numbskulls make responsible gun owners like me look bad.

    Loaded and chambered shotgun at a gun show?

    Leaving a gun show with a loaded and chambered gun?

    Removing a magazine without checking to see if a round is chambered?

    What a bunch of MORONS.

    I own many guns, and I NEVER leave a round chambered in ANY of my guns, unless I plan on immediately shooting something.

    I wonder if these idiots were liberals who were attending their first gun show, and they were trying to figure out how these "gun things" work. :D
