Preventing Accidental Discharge

edited February 10 in Gun Control Debates Posts: 14
If you happened to have ever held a gun before or owned one, you would notice that all guns have a safety key which is turn on and off before making use of the gun. It's always in the best interest of the gun user to always put his or her gun safety on when the gun is not of any shooting use. This is the only way to avoid accidental discharge which if care is not taken might kill someone.

It's very much better to be on the prevention side than on the curing/treatment side. Always put your gun safety on.


  • Every gun owner knows to always lock and don't cock. Guns must always be on safety and must only be cocked or put into fire when there's a clear threat.

  • Maybe the best way to avoid this is, do not carry your gun if you don't need to. But if you are carrying it, then you should always check if your gun is in safe mode or don't cocked your gun while carrying it
  • Yes, always putting the safety key on is important especially when you have children around. They might of it as a toy gun and use it not knowing what it really is. I k now someone who accidentally shot one of his family member because he forgot to put the safety key on.

    I don't think 'not carrying a gun on you at all times' is the right answer. Besides, if you have to be told to not have your gun cocked, you prolly shouldn't own one.
