Talks On Safety.Firearms.
A MAN with a piece of a hand was once asked," How did it happen?" and he replied, "I was fooling with a gun that wasn't loaded."
Careless handling of firearms and assuming that a gun is not loaded are the two chief causes of accidents with firearms.
Firearms should always be kept in a locked drawer or closet out of reach of children.
Young boys should never be allowed to use firearms unless an older person is with them.
In handling or cleaning a gun in your home, you should take no chances--you should absolutely know that it is not loaded.
