Pro Gun Columnist Shot By His Own Gun

This isn’t funny, or karma as some very insensitive people have said, it’s actually pretty sad. Anytime someone dies in this fashion, it’s sad. There is no denying that guns are designed to kill people, and you must always exercise extreme caution when dealing with them. Unfortunately, M.D Harmon had a lapse in judgement, and it cost him his life.

Why did he let a kid hold a loaded gun? Why was the gun pointing in his direction? Why was the finger on the trigger? And on and on the gun safety questions go. It was a terrible but preventable tragedy. As a gun owner, my son has never played with any of my weapons. They are not accessible to him, and he in fact has zero interest in guns. The one time he did look at my firearm, it was unloaded, (triple checked) and with the safety trigger guard on. The level of caution and safety cannot be taken for granted.

This man, for all the good he may have done for legal gun owner’s rights, threw it all away with one big mistake. As with any loss of life, my condolences go to his friends and family, and I hope that the young man who accidentally shot him will get pass this.

Folks, remember, guns are dangerous, they can kill you if you are not careful. They are designed for one purpose, and one purpose only, to injure, maim, and kill. So knowing this, you must always exercise the most extreme of caution.
