    Should it be:
    "Carry one"
    "Don't let the government take them"

    Both seem reasonable to be the number one rule.
    I think it's don't let the government take them. If they take them it will make carrying one a lot more difficult.

    Don't assume the gun is unloaded.......it saves a lot of grief.

    and possibly.....don't do a backflip on a dance floor whilst carrying....:eek:

    Poll needs a third choice, "neither." First is "Always treat a gun as if it was loaded." The only exception that I can think of is if it's in pieces on the bench.

    This question all depends on who you ask ,, Gun Safety means different things to different people...
    For example ,, to normal people,, gun safety basically means treat every gun as its loaded.
    To a democrat ,, it means ,,, turn in all of your guns and we'll protect you.

    If you’re not doing the first, doing the second will be neigh on impossible.

    An unloaded gun is a paperweight

    I was taught a gun is drawn and shot, not wave around to intimidate an aggressor to give up.
    If you are taking 10 seconds to aim, your out of practice.
    If you are taking time to load your weapon that is the time you've given your enemy against you.
    If you can't shoot accurately from the hip, your out of practice. It is likely that your enemy already has you in his sights.
    Gun safety is literally all in your head. Stupid happens when you don't think.
