Irresponsible Gun Owner of the Day: Unidentified Shooter

“Be sure of your target and what’s beyond it” doesn’t just mean make sure you’re aiming at something and there’s nothing behind it that could be wounded or killed by a stray bullet…although it does mean that. It also means be sure that your target won’t fragment and wound or kill someone. Or you. So shooting at rocks isn’t recommended. Doing so at close range without eye pro is even less advisable. Idiot.

Is that a real GLOCK 19 or an Airsoft gun? At the end of this “comedy” skit, the teen playing COD racks the slide and ejects what sure looks like a cartridge. If so, whoa. Not only is he pointing the gun in an unsafe direction, his finger’s on the trigger. If not, if it is a toy, still no. This channel is popular with the whipper-snapper set; setting a bad example on gun safety on the Interwebz is never a good idea. In fact, it’s entirely irresponsible. And Facebook bans people selling a legal product legally. Go figure.

Imagine the thrill these boys must have felt, fresh off the farm, being handed one of John Moses Browning’s finest, probably for the first time. The best minds the U. S. military could muster put their noggins together to produce this little feature to familiarize them with the pistol that would soon be their sidearm. And this is apparently the best Uncle Sam could do. Regularly lasering each other? Check. Booger hooks consistently placed on bangswitches? You betcha. And while not dangerous, how about that fancy teacup grip G.I. Joe learned from the ol’ sarge? Yer in the Army now, dogface.
