5 injured after firearms go off at Ohio, N.C., Indiana gun shows - CNN.com
I read about that. That is crazy,makes me scared to go to a gun show.
They're all pretty worthless nowadays anyway.
The only reason to go is you're pretty much assured you can get your hands on a lot of items that would require driving all over to get a look at ordinarily.
Oh, and 3 of the 5 were from a single round of birdshot. I want someone to tell me birdshot is a good home defense solution after 3 people hit by a single round didn't suffer so much as a lost day of work.
The biggest problem we have is the lack of penalties for f**king up in America. If people were held accountable for their actions we'd see a rise in personal responsibility I'd imagine.
Its not appreciation.
appreciation day is for your favorite pet.
For home defense, slugs > birdshot. Birdshot is pointless in real world scenarios.
Birdshot is useless, might as well bag someone with a handful of plastic pellets. Buckshot or slugs like Batwolf mentioned.
Are there really no penalties against the owners for this sort of incident?
Depends on how it went down.
They'll get unlawful discharge, transporting a loaded weapon, maybe a few other misdemeanors. Nothing of real substance.
Walk around at work and ask who has a DUI, you'll probably get a good number depending on the demographic. Then ask what they had to do because of it. A few grand, classes, some probation with restricted driving, if that.
The guy at the gunshow should get something like attempted manslaughter
There are penalties, as Rustpot mentioned.
Separate names with a comma.
