Firearm Accidents

Due to the Second Amendment, most Americans have the right to own firearms. Guns can be useful for hunting as well as protecting the home, but they must be handled with proper care so that they do not accidentally discharge and injure someone. Unfortunately, though, firearms cause thousands of injuries and even deaths across the nation every year due to people acting recklessly when handling them as well as from inherent gun defects from faulty manufacturing.

Causes of Gunshot Accidents

Gun safety is highly important and can possibly mean the difference between life and death. Gunshot wounds can cause irreversible damage, potentially leaving someone permanently disabled. You should always be careful when handling a gun in order to avoid the following situations that may cause an accident:

  • Forgetting to put the safety on
  • Hunting in big groups or with inexperienced individuals
  • Leaving guns out around small children
  • Cleaning the gun with a bullet in the chamber
  • Traveling with guns loaded

Sadly, no matter how safe you may be when handling guns, someone else can make a careless error and accidentally shoot you or someone you love.
