there's no clip locked in...so assuming it was checked to see if there was a round chambered, it's all gravy.

The 12 Golden rules for Safe Gun Handling

1. Always treat the gun as loaded.
2. Always keep the gun pointed in a safe direction.
3. Always keep your finger straight and off the trigger until you are ready to shoot.
4. Always keep the gun unloaded until you are ready to use it.
5. Never point the gun at anything you don't intend to destroy.
6. Be sure of your target and what is beyond it.
7. Learn the mechanical and handling characteristics of the gun you are using.
8. Always use proper Ammunition.
9. Be sure the barrel is clear of obstructions before loading and shooting.
10. If your gun fails to fire when the trigger is pulled, hold your shooting position for several seconds; then with the muzzle pointed in a safe direction, carefully unload the gun.
11. Don't rely on the gun's safety to keep it from firing.
12. Be aware of your surroundings when handling guns so you don't trip or lose your balance and accidentally point and/or fire the gun at anyone or anything.

Goddamn he's a dumbfuck. Wait a sec...he's a Democrat... ZOMGWTGBBQ, the Brady Campaign's gonna revoke his democrat-ic-ness card!!!

Seriously though, you don't point weapons, even unloaded, in public at each other--especially if you're a politician.

That might be the only way he never gets re-elected...it he shoots somebody. And that's a pretty big "might"

One would think being a vocal racist, mocking the WTC disaster site to deflect criticism of your own incompetence, and generally mismanaging the fuck out of your city when it needs you most would not be the appropriate actions of a politician either, but it got him re-elected once. Maybe if he points a few guns at people on camera and dropkicks some puppies, he can secure another victory.

The photo was taken out of context


Nagin knew full well that photos were being taken and even asked if photographers were “good” before he put the rifle down. As usual, Nagin has no one to blame but himself for this latest controversy.

A freak accident??? Cheney was drinking, had a loaded gun, and shot a buddy in the face! Dude... you can't knock one guy for appearing to not follow safe gun rules while at the same time exonerating a guy who actually failed to follow safe gun rules.

You give yourself way too much credit. This thread was heading down the wrong way of the street long before you graced it with your presence.

Hey, it's all good. The guy that Cheney shot apologized. It's over. Move along, nothing to see here.

Spoiler:
Just be sure not to ask about the women (not their wives) back at the hunting lodge, though.

* Cheney, Whittington and Williford had first together shot birds in a covey
* While Whittington was searching for a downed bird, Cheney, Williford and an 'Outrider' (Guide) walked towards another covey about 100 yards (100 m) away
* Whittington, without announcing himself, approached to within 30 or 40 yards (40 m) of the shooters
* A single bird flew up, around and behind Cheney in the direction of Whittington
* Cheney shot at the bird and struck Whittington
* The shooting occurred somewhere around 5:30 or 6 p.m.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dick_Ch...nting_incident

The "drinking" was a beer consumed at lunch. And it sound like EVERYBODY pretty much screwed the pooch on this one. Poor safety all around.

"Don't confuse me with the facts, I've already made up my mind"


I'm giving Nagin shit because I believe the man is completely incompetent, people give Cheney shit because they "feel" he's evil A fact and an opinion are two different things.

I am amazed that almost every single solitary thread having to do with a political figure in any manner ends up having Bush-bashing peppered throughout.
