[VIDEO] Irresponsible Gun Owner / Irresponsible Gun Range: Are Both To Blame?

By Robert Farago via The Truth About Guns

That’s Chris from his YouTube vlog Chrisandqueen. Check out his shooting pal below. [Full video below]. While Chris and his BFF’s failure to keep their firearms pointed in a safe direction seems clearly irresponsible, it’s their first time shooting. Which begs the question: is their irresponsibility actually the gun range’s responsibility?

A prominent local gun range here in Austin — which this isn’t — gets a lot of new shooters. The guy behind the counter goes through the safety basics, explains the firearms’ operation to the newbie and then sets them loose on the range. The RSO isn’t given a heads-up. Not to put too fine a point on it, that’s some crazy dangerous sh*t.

So back to the video . . .

Same deal here: no supervision for a newbie. No RSO to make sure Chris knows WTF he’s doing. No RSO jumping in and reading him the Four Rules of Gun Safety riot act. That’s completely irresponsible. Yes?
