    HHmmmm. If this is real, then it's pretty sad. I'm not convinced that it is, though. It could be, but maybe not. First of all, the website says that this guy is a DEA officer. If you look very closely when he turns, the last two letters on the back of his shirt say "SA". This could be NSA or TSA or whatever, but I don't think these two agencies normally have "POLICE" on the front of their shirts. Maybe, but I don't think so.

    Second of all, this guy refers to that particular handgun as a "Glock 40". There is no "Glock 40". There are .40 caliber Glocks, such as the Glock 22, 23, 24, 27, and 35. Most people don't call these "Glock 40's". They call them "Glock 22", "Glock 24", etc. But, of course, most federal agents don't shoot themselves in the leg either, or bring loaded weapons for demonstration in to what appears to be a school classroom, or talk like complete idiots, like this guy. Of course, this is the government we're talking about, so it could be true.

    I was never fully convinced it was real, and it looks like Ricky Williams after a bong hit teaching gun safety.... The kids didn't jump when the gun went off, that was a good sign it was set up...

    Fake or not, there's a clear lesson here: all guns are loaded. Even with the clip removed and the chamber empty, it's loaded.

    My wife has a friend who decided to clean her gun after the babies were asleep, while her husband was at his night job. Bam! Blew a hole through the wall. The only things hurt were the wall and her ego. I'm not sure what model gun it was, but the cartridge was out. Maybe there was a round in the chamber. Maybe the gun had a preload mechanism between chamber and clip. Whatever. Bam!

    I know a guy who blew a hole in his foot while riding in a Jeep on a hunting trip. And I know two people with dead kids who were playing with guns.

    I don't know anybody who has been shot by a criminal, or who has averted a crime with a gun.

    Slightly off-topic, but in a similar vein, this just reported:- Source: Reuters - 24/05/2005

    A funfight with homemade lightsabres has left two Star Wars fans fighting for their lives after their "toys" exploded.

    Mark Webb, 20, and an unnamed 17-year-old girl filled fluorescent light tubes with petrol to recreate the famous lightsabres and filmed their mock battle in woodland at Hemel Hempstead, Hertfordshire, on Sunday evening.

    But tragedy struck when one of the lightsabres exploded and the pair were rushed to hospital.

    A spokeswoman for Hertfordshire Police said that a third person present at the incident had been questioned and their videotape had been found nearby.

    She added: "A 17-year-old girl and a 20-year-old man from Hemel Hempstead suffered serious injuries. They have been transferred to a specialist burns unit in Chelmsford, Essex, and are still critically ill in hospital.

    "At this stage we are unable to confirm the exact circumstances, but glass tubes and traces of accelerant were found at the scene."

    So much for the Star Wars fans - how stupid is that?

    I'm still amazed at the fact that they didn't take out the whole woodland too.

    Only in England. Sheesh!

    I agree. Gun safety isn't rocket science. Guns aren't mystical artifacts beyond any human control. It just takes some common sense and care.

    On a side note, I know tons of people who've grown up with guns all their lives and have never had a single incident. This guy is just clearly a moron (assuming it's real).
