Armed Females of America has a great comment on a recent Detroit News article. It seems the News would have us believe that the safest firearm in the world is actually the most dangerous. AFA has already made all the rebuttal that needs to be made:
Unfortunately I have known three people who have shot themselves with Glocks (none fatally) within the past seven years. All of them (including a police officer) received self-inflicted wounds because of omitting one very important firearms safety rule: "Always keep your finger off the trigger until ready to shoot."
A safety is a man made, mechanical device subject to failure, and the liberal media would lead you to believe that the warm and fuzzy notion of a mechanical safety will prevent accidents by even the most experienced gun handlers. The only true safety in the handling and operation of any type of equipment (especially firearms) is COMMON SENSE and THE OPERATOR.
What's this? Logic? Reason? Such things have no place in journalism!
