    I have been watching the In Session trial of Mark Schack, and we are in the closing arguments of his case. The Prosecution is closing now, and the .223 involved in this case is sitting on a table in front of the courtroom like it's on trial.

    BUT TO MY SURPRISE, IT IS NOT.

    The Prosecution is explaining step by step the process in making THIS PARTICULAR weapon fire. Paraphrasing, here are his steps:

    1. Load the magazine
    2. Place magazine in rifle and LOCK IT IN PLACE
    3. Disengage the safety, as the safety blocks charging handle
    4. Pull the charging handle to the rear
    5. Place finger in trigger well
    6. Squeeze the trigger with about 5 lbs of pressure

    After saying this, he says the following: "Guns do not load themselves, folks, and they do not go off by themselves."

    This really has nothing to do with 2A, but it sends a clear message that people are becoming more and more educated about the function of weapons.
    "Most people respect the badge. Everybody... respects the gun."

    What's a trigger well? :P

    5 out of 6 = 83.3% - that's passing, but not an A+

    Sounds like this guy was a Marine.

    I've heard the term "Trigger Well" while in the Corps, Years ago.

    Haven't heard that term in 14 years now.

    Since some people here like the links, to be properly informed, here is a link that mentions the parts of the lower receiver.

    "Well" it's where you keep your booger picker.
    I wonder if he counts screwing on the silencer, and unfolding the stock
    as two more steps.

    But I must strongly disagree, ALL GUNS LOAD THEMSELVES, it is like gravity, and
    speed of light, a universal constant that has never been proven wrong.
    They shoot themselves also, but I have yet to find even one that aims itself.
