I was really hoping this was an airsoft gun, which would have been bad, but potentially less life threatening. Never, ever, point a loaded at anything you don’t intend to destroy. That includes the camera, especially if you are behind it.
This is why mandatory gun safety and range training should be required to buy a gun.
Training is important. It teaches you to do the same thing, every time, no matter what stress you are under. I am sure this gentlemen was excited because of the competition, and that caused him to put his finger on that trigger as he closed the break action shotgun, and caused an accidental discharge. Thankfully, it does not look like anyone was hurt.
A candidate for the senate is calling for the hunting and killing of citizens of our country. I don’t care if he’s going after what he calls Republicans In Name Only (RINO), kids, or Democrats. Calls for violence are the same as call for Civil War and he should be arrested and prosecuted.
Adam Kinzinger should not be able to even run for Senate – this should disqualify him under the Insurrection Act.
I don’t care if your a Democrat or Republican, this can’t be allowed to stand. Contact Mitch McConnel’s office and demand that he disavow Adam Kinzinger.
Do not let these right wing nuts destroy our country.
