This is one of the things that drives me batty. Yes, you have a "right" to say whatever you want. However, don't think for one second that what you say may not come back to bite you in the ass. I don't have any idea why some people believe that just because they have the right to say something that no consequence will arise from it. Those people are known as obliviots.

Sometimes reality continues to astonish me.

Termination hearing for YouTubing Gilberton police chief continued after gun falls from supporter's holster

Loaded handgun falls to floor during testimony. Meeting to resume in courthouse.
October 10, 2013|By Nicole Radzievich and Jacob Seibel, Of The Morning Call
GILBERTON, Schuylkill County
— —


The termination hearing of Gilberton police Chief Mark Kessler, whose curse-riddled YouTube videos about gun rights have gone viral, was stopped Thursday after a loaded handgun fell from a bystander's holster onto the concrete floor.

The gun did not go off, but Kessler's attorney, Joseph Nahas, directed that person to leave the room packed with 40 people. After a short private meeting, officials announced that the hearing would be reconvened at a later date at a larger room at the Schuylkill County Courthouse.

"We're in a very small room. It's made of concrete. If a gun were to be chambered and land on concrete, like it just did, someone can be injured," Nahas said.

No date has been scheduled for the hearing to continue.

That is precisely why I don't trust the general public with conceal/open carry permits. If you want to carry a gun I think extra classes should be required.

I had a manager who had a gun go OFF in a store meeting when he dropped it. Even though guns have safety mechanisms in them to prevent chambered rounds from firing they are NOT perfect and not 100%.

Thankfully no one was hurt. (Why a gun was even brought to a store meeting is beyond me).

Why does this astonish you?

You have NEVER had anything fall out of your pocket before or dropped something by accident? By design most all modern handguns have disconnects/safeties to stop discharges from occurring from being dropped.

Was it carless, yes.

Ask anyone in law enforcement if it has happened to them, odds are they will say yes.

In the 30 years my father was on the force in the Omaha Police Department, he has NEVER had his weapon fall or drop out of his holster. NEVER. Police are at least trained on how to properly carry their weapons, let alone draw them when they are needed. Idiots like this guy are what taints your cause.

People in general have the right to say and do stupid things that can harm the general public and when ever we have an incident, new regulations and/or warnings are set in place to protect the general public. Why is it when guns are at the core of the issue, it's a something we as the general public cannot discuss and the argument is reduced to "it's his right"?

If your guns regularly fall out of your pockets like loose change you are a terribly incapable and irresponsible gun owner.

Well, that is why I carry so many. It I drop one, no big deal. I have six or seven more. You can never have to many!

Am I the only one that senses the insecurity here, especially in a state that is the biggest state in this country, and is the 3rd least populous?

And taking the bold for emphasis, you basically just stated that you are an irresponsible gun owner. Sure you don't want to correct yourself?

I think lostngone is indulging in a little irony here. The problem being that, compared to the usual opinions, the difference here seems subtle and may be easy to miss.

No it actually isn't. You are not to bring firearms, knives, drugs, or alcohol to work.

The general public is too stupid to be carrying guns around willy nilly. This guy had ZERO training, he just went out and bought a gun and flashed it around because he thought it was cool.

This.

I think too many accidents should require a revocation of those rights until you take a multitude of classes.

Sorry folks, it was sarcasm. Hence the rollyeyes. I hate the "rights" argument just as much as any other sane person.
