It seems that some patriots want guns that they can't safely handle....

LOL! But I thought we would be so much safer if the good guys have guns! I see the Darwin Rule is gathering steam. These gun shows need to be stopped. If you want a gun go to a licensed dealer. At the very least they need to be stopped on public property like arenas and fairgrounds. I don't want my tax dollars to provide venues for these idiots any longer.

The Huffington post is a trash paper with ZERO conservative input.

Armed guards at gun shows would put an end to these accidental incidents.

You should talk. Chicago has a huge gun crime rate and with strict gun control laws to boot! Chicago, a nice place to visit but a shitty place to live.

I have had to pay to get in to every gun show I have attended and the cost keeps going up, a venue is a venue even the KKK can rent one I guess you just don't believe in the freedom to assemble unless its only for things you like or agree with.

Though I may agree that there are some people who don't know how to handle guns it should not condemn the millions who know. If it were the case then there are millions of people who should not (dare I say be allowed to drive) or how many times have we heard of the guys flying small planes who crash and die and we hear how experienced they were. Of course once the secretary of HHS has her say no one will be allowed to do anything that might cause some injury or you will be taxed or fined or something. Its all said and done it will all come down to health.

So, for sure it is a factual account, unless of course you have conservation spin to disprove it?

I've posted links in the past to huffington post, and Bob, St. Stevo, and the rest of the liberals on here keep saying that huffpo is not a reliable source.
Seems they just cant make up their mind as to what a reliable source is.
Go figure!

A quarter of a million are killed by medical mistakes annually in this country. Better avoid doctors.

No, no...here's how it goes: if THEY use Huffpo as a source, it's absolutely, positively 100% accurate without question. When someone else quotes is as a source, it's suspect. Does the duplicity really surprise you considering the source?

They just cant decide if Huffpo is a reliable source or not.
When ever I post a link, they say it isnt credible,....but when they do,... it is,

There were three shot at this show accidentally, not five. Huffpo gossip column bullshit at its finest.

If you look at the location on your post above, it says you're in Chicago, chucklehead although most of us understand router locations change and some people use programs to hide their locations. Oh...and GR's track record on gun deaths hasn't exactly been exemplary lately, either. Last I checked, murder is against the law. Tell me again how criminals obey laws?

Is there a source, that disproves Huffington?

If you'd bother to pay attention it's because the criminals bring them into Chicago from out-of-town.

Expecting criminals to abide by laws is like expecting you to use some sense.

You poor village idiot......

Whenever I have derided you over using Huffpo as a source it was done tongue in cheek, because your kind doesn't believe in any source other than FAUX News. It's sort of like you poo-pooing my use of FAUX News as a source.

BTW - I see that your favorite whacked out source is now reporting two of the three stories combined in the Huffington Post link.

Now would you like to comment on the facts of the story?

Don't be afraid to explain why people shouldn't laugh at the hypocrisy of the gun nuts who don't even know how to safely handle a gun.

Thankfully, none of these dolts where anywhere near a really dangerous weapon like a hammer......

Some day the short bus may drop you off at the classroom that teaches you how to read and comphrehend a news story. Now follow carefully as I'm not using a crayon, but maybe you'll get it!

See the word SHOWS in the title? That's a plural, which means more than one show. If fact three different shows witnessed the ineptness of how to handle a deadly weapon. One mouth breather didn't see anything wrong with carrying an encased and loaded shotgun into the show. Any bets the safety was off?

The second shooting was a gun dealer, like you'd think they'd know something about what they were selling, shooting his buddy after failing to make sure the weapon he picked up was cleared and safe.

The last idiot from NC shot himself, which is probably the best way for some of this people to learn from such a mistake. Wasn't Mayberry located somewhere near there? Maybe these people should be forced to do what Sheriff Taylro did to Barney..... Carry his one bullet in his shirt pocket!
