There are immutable laws in Nature.

Water flows downhill, sun rises in the east and always check the chamber first and do not point at what you do want to shoot.

Do you think it was the first time he ever did this? As a store owner, or manager, how long would this guy work for you before you became aware of this practice? Sounds to me like the whole store policy needs a makeover. I don't even like to be in a gun department(Gander Mountain) where every pistol in the cases is pointed at my privates, or right in the faces of kids who look through the front of the cases.

Agree with all above who say the gun store jerk is a total idiot unworthy of gun ownership let alone working in a shop. In addition the cop who asked the kid to point the gun at him...what if someone else armed walked into the room and witnessed a kid pointing a gun at someone as if aiming to discharge it....nice - this is why folks........!!!

I called the shop yesterday, the manager wont be in til Friday. Last night I was at the range Im a member at. While in the gun shop, I witnessed several different people, including staff, handling pistols and rifles while pointing them in the direction of other people. Im just not comfortable with a gun pointed at me.

Thought Id follow up on this. I finally got a hold of the manager today. He didn't seem too concerned. I guess if the guy has an accident and shoots someone he'll be able to live with it.

I can't believe the manager wasn't concerned. I guess someone will have to get shot before it's taken seriously.

I have personally witnessed two accidential discharges. Both from people who were proficient with weapons. One of them was a Marine Corp drill instructor. I know of three other accidential discharges one of which ended with a .45 hollow point nearly taking a friend's left foot off. He is still on crutches and is lucky to be walking.

I don't know why people "play" with firearms. I would never go in that store again and warn everyone I know.

Sorry to hear about the crazy permits required in Jersey.

In all honesty, he is not a cop, he is an administrator who probably qualifies and handles his sidearm twice a year... Sorry did not mean to get in the way of a good bash I just wanted to help out the expert, please proceed...

Not ment to try and bash the police force...just the people who think that anyone with a badge is always right. They seem to forget that "cops" are just people.

I support my local L.E. at work and at home.

Its cool, we are and we make mistakes, like anyone else. Im sure that chief has not riddin the street or pulled his gun in the line of duty in at least 15 years. My favorite video for an idiot was the DEA agent that shot himself n front of a class.

I did PM Darth the name of the shop. I didn't throw the name out there for a few reasons. For one thing my perception was the manager wasn't concerned when I described the incident to him. However, I recognize I could be wrong. He may have been extremely concerned but didn't want to make a big deal out of it in front of me the customer. And this shop has an excellent rep and has been extremely nice to deal with. So I didn't think it would be fair of me to throw them under the bus over one incident. Mike.

What's amazing to me is how he ended up with a loaded gun in a classroom? They obviously knew they would be in a school. You would think all the guns would be checked prior to even going to the school and then checked and rechecked. I read somewhere he sued someone for letting the video out because it ruined his career.

Did he shoot himself in the leg? If he did that guy is a beast, he didn't even say Ouch.
