- Treat all guns as if they are loaded
- Never point a gun at anything you are not willing to destroy
- Keep your finger off the trigger until your sights are on target and you have made the decision to shoot
- Be sure of your target and what is beyond it
Video taken from security footage in a gun store was posted on Active Self Protection‘s Facebook page two weeks ago showing an officer shooting his finger off at the counter.
The post reads:
Firearms Safety Failure Leads To Cop Shooting HimselfThis is not an accident, but is pure negligence everyone.At Active Self Protection we lament firearms safety failures like this.Watch and learn what NOT to do!
It’s beyond sad to see a uniformed officer blatantly ignore the rules of gun safety we work so hard to promote and emulate to others. The comment hit the nail on the head: this isn’t an accident, it’s pure negligence.
