    Show me yours and I値l show you mine: 19-news-view on Carry in WI

    The pictures used are TERRIBLE! Everyone of them shows a gun safety violation (finger on the trigger).

    Yes, TERRIBLE is the right word. One of the pitfalls of just anyone being in contact with the news media. There is always the risk it is someone who has very poor/unsafe gun handling skills as is the case here. Putting myself at risk of attack from the "we don't need no stinkin training" crowd here, this is a good example of why everyone should seek training.

    Yes the pictures here are not the pictures that were posted with the original article which came out in the Chilton Times. I posted that in another thread.
    the person depicted in these pictures is not anyone commenting or interviewed in the article either.
    I can speak personally that it is not my brother Bob nor is it Nik Clark.

    I really don't know why he added these pictures in when they do not portray safe handling of a firearm anyway.

    The media is not your or our friend.

    There once was a lad from Niger
    Who smiled as he rode on a media-tiger
    They came back from the ride
    With the lad inside
    And the smile on the face of the media-tiger

    The epitome of a straw argument: "OK, but is it not the height of paranoia to assume your life is going to be threatened to the point where you are going to arm yourself to go to church?"

    No, the height of paranoia is fearing an inanimate object.

    Second to Safety, the Union/Flag is improperly displayed in the photo. The individual obviously is a "model" cuz any self respecting Gun owner would NEVER hold a firearm in such an unsafe manner, unless of course you're a thug in a movie!
