Aren't the Republicans mostly the ones adamant to increase the number of toddlers in the country?

There's some kind of conspiracy here. Hypoconspiracy.

I always hope these people suffer greatly but live to give talks at schools about why you shouldn't try to fiddle a loaded gun, while the students mill about ready to chamber a round in case terrorists attack the school. Cause terrorists are way more dangerous than kids with guns.

The robot is not very smart if it confuses Budweiser with actual beer. So much for AI.

An Oregon father took his three children hunting, bagged two of them with one shot.

I did not know Oregon had a season for them or I would have moved there years ago.

Fresno officer discussing how to safely carry your backup weapon, accidentally shot by colleague's backup weapon.

As we all know, guns are perfectly safe, that's why any random person should be able to wave one around, as they never go off unless you mean them to, unless you're a trained officer.

It probably makes me a horrible person but I can't help but laugh a little when rabid gun rights people get killed by guns in completely AVOIDABLE circumstances that they lobby/rail against.

That it's not a completely uncommon occurrence is another issue.
These things aren't actually toys guys, handing them loaded to children should be taken about as seriously as handing a child a running chainsaw who's throttle "occasionally sticks."

Although this does teach extreme safety. "Now always make sure the chamber is empty. I'll demonstrate, come over here Jerry... *click* *blame* See one of the rounds hand fired. Would my next volunteer like to drag Jerry off stage for me, thx.
Next up, "if you can pull the trigger you're ready for full auto!"

It does make me wonder though what his will is like and if this would be covered under his life insurance. When it comes to people, I don't immediately put it past them to think "Well if it just 'accidentally' goes off, it's not suicide..."

Just one of those CRAZY FREAK ACCIDENTS!! The kind that nobody can ever foresee but seem to happen regularly when you leave guns laying around where kids can get them and shoot one another with them, because you are a fucking moron.

To their credit, the local news story picks up on this particular moron:

But, it’s a freak accident that also happened a few hours later further South. An 8-year-old boy in Jacksonville, Florida accidentally shot and killed his 5-year-old sister and injured a 4-year-old neighbor when mom went to the store.

According to Every Town Research, 247 child shooting were reported in 2016.

It is a great and probably unintended protest against unrestricted gun ownership like open carry.

Indeed. Said denouncement does suggest it's not where you're carrying firearms that determines whether you constitute a threat or not. It's how you look while carrying said firearms.

Quote:
"There is a clear difference between the everyday protection we advocate for and the attention seeking actions of these individuals. Wearing a mask, dark glasses, visible body armor, and a rifle slung across your chest instills a very specific image that cannot be ignored."
"Like it or not, exercising your rights is not black and white. How you act and portray yourself is a big part of advocacy. I believe these gentlemen failed in this regard," Michigan Open Carry president Tom Lambert said in a statement.
