Webb-O Don’t Know Gun Safety

Let’s not overlook this part of the Sen. Jim “Thinskin” Webb (D-WashPo) story:

The weapon was revealed when the aide went through an X-ray machine at an entrance of the Russell Senate Office Building, said police spokeswoman Schneider. She said the man had a loaded pistol with two additional loaded magazines.

Isn’t one of the first rules of gun safety to empty the chamber and remove the magazine when your gun is not in use and you are not keeping it ready to use?

Why yes, according to the NRA, it is.

ALWAYS keep the gun unloaded until ready to use.
Whenever you pick up a gun, immediately engage the safety device if possible, and, if the gun has a magazine, remove it before opening the action and looking into the chamber(s) which should be clear of ammunition. If you do not know how to open the action or inspect the chamber(s), leave the gun alone and get help from someone who does.

Looks like Webb-O won’t be passing any NRA-sanctioned gun safety classes any time soon.

  1. The real question is what exactly Senator Nutjob was planning to do with a loaded pistol and two fully loaded clips at the US FREAKING CAPITOL. I mean, it is one of the most heavilly defended pieces of ground on Planet Earth. Was the gimpy, portly Senator hoping to add his own layer of protection to the grounds? Or is it possible that Angry Jimmy, who has already admitted that he wanted to commit a federal crime by physically assaulting the President of The United States at the White House, planning on using his weapon against a Republican colleague who achieved the ridiculously easy feat of besting the logically-challenged, knuckle dragging Senator in a debate?

    As we all know, Ollie North proved that Senator Daywalking Ginger (see South Park for a definition and explanation) isn’t worth a damn with his fists, so maybe the portly Senator with the massive Napoleonic Complex was bringing along a little back up.

    In closing, is their anyone who would dispute the fact that if a Republican Senator did something like this it would be on the front page on Pravda on the Potomac in 20 point type and if George Allen had ever done something like this, there would be a fifty-part series penned by Steve Jardin’s ghost writer…I mean Mikey Schear. Anyone want to take bets as to whether this will appear anywhere near the front page tomorrow? Didn’t think so…
