I’m not a safety Nazi, but at the same time, I think that we do need to pay attention to safety especially when we are talking about firearms. The consequences when there is an accident with a firearm can be very severe, ranging from a bruised ego to death of yourself or another. It is this reason that people are so focused on safety rules for firearms. Rules, however, are seldom the solution. People look at rules as magic talisman that protect us from danger, but this couldn’t be farther from the truth. We must look at safety as a concept with rules acting as a guide and our engaged brain doing the majority of the work. Speaking of work, we are going to do some today. We are going to look at the problems that firearms rules can cause and how it is that we can deal with those problems.
