RALEIGH, NC (WTVD) — Law enforcement officials have confirmed a shooting at the Dixie Gun and Knife Show at the North Carolina State Fairgrounds Saturday afternoon.

Agency spokesman Brian Long says a 12-gauge shotgun discharged while its owner, 36-year-old Gary Lynn Wilson, of Wilmington, unzipped its case for a law enforcement officer to check it at a security entrance.

Three people were injured when the gun went off, officials said, including a retired Wake County Sherriff’s deputy working the show.

The title says it all, although I do feel bad for the people that got wounded. How’s that 2nd Amendment working out for ya?

The doom and gloom goes to the forefont and gets sensationalized. The good that comes from responsible gun owners gets stifled and buried. Typical leftist propoganda.

Vog here actually wants a law that charges a homeowner with a Felony if a criminal breaks into his “locked and secured home” and steals his weapon (if the weapon isn’t locked). This means every gun owner must have 40 locks on his front door and the guns secured in a 5ooo dollar safe that can’t be breached by the average criminal. We all know that most gun locks are a deterrent at best and will not prevent a criminal from breaching. On top of that, he wants gunowners to carry “liability insurance” to cover the injuries of someone that may be affected by a thief who steals your weapon.

Now tell me, is that some clear thinking or what? Yep, just like the Mississippi river, clear as mud…

In your rush to judgement your forgot your ability to read.
Gunlocks.
Homeowner not home? Burglar breaks in steals the locked guns?
No problems
Homeowner not home and guns NOT locked? Charge the gun owner (Misdemeanor for first offense – I’ll be kind)
Homeowner there? Locks not needed.

Of course if everyone was a responsible gun owner and took care of their weapons we wouldn’t be talking about guns going off at the fairgrounds, or someone taking Mommy and Daddys guns and shooting up the family now would we? (Then later WalMart). Nuts like Adam Lanza “happen”
Of course if we want background checks to weed out “nut cases” I suppose current gun owners would have to undergo a shrink exam.
Would YOU Pass?
You could always get your union organizer buddies at the NRA to defend you you know.
Pay your dues to lobby the government – sounds so “AFL-CIO” doesn’t it?
Registration
Testing
Annual renewals
Training
Background checks
Insurance

If I get 80% of what I want to see I’ll be happy.
But if we undergo shrink exams be prepared to have 20% of gun owners lose their ability to own.
