Chamber Check Needed

Whenever you handle a firearm the first thing you should always do is ensure it's UNLOADED! Get the word out. If you or someone you know doesn't do this, you need to start.

Two injured in accidental shooting at Bloomington gun show
An attendee at the show was handling a mini-14, semi-automatic rifle at about 11:15 a.m. As the patron was laying the rifle back on a vendor table, the gun accidentally discharged, said McLean County Sheriff Mike Emery.
"The round went through a post, through a person and then into another person," said Emery, describing the post as wooden, and 6 to 8 inches thick.
One man had a chest wound, while details of the second person's injuries were not immediately available. One victim was taken to OSF St. Joseph Medical Center, while the other was transported to Advocate BroMenn Medical Center.

The story above is a senseless mistake that could and should have been avoided.
