Responsible Gun Handling

Posted by on

I wanted to deter a bit from the technical security world and discuss responsible gun handling. With all the recent shooting events in public venues and government crackdown on gun ownership, many people are buying up guns and ammunition. While owning guns is our constitutional right, handling guns responsibly is our duty. Like any potentially dangerous objects, gun owners should establish and follow responsible handling procedures to prevent accidental injuries.

Gun owners should understand that responsibly handling lethal weapons requires education and application. When handling guns, it is best to treat them all as if they are loaded. Countless accidents have been caused by people assuming a gun is unloaded and carelessly handling it. Respect for the lethal nature of guns is important to prevent irresponsible handling of the weapons and to maintain focus on gun safety.

There are numerous courses on responsible gun handling available to the public in all major cities. There are general and specialized courses on gun safety offered by law enforcement, military, or other trained professionals. Along with discussing responsible gun handling, there are also classes that share knowledge of the legalities of gun handling. Whether a person is open carrying or concealed carrying a gun, they must understand how to do it safely and legally. Topics such as lethal self-defense are discussed to ensure gun owners understand responsible handling and usage.

Have a great week and we look forward to seeing you here at The O next week.
