Daily Defense 1-2: Four Rules of Firearm Safety
The U.S. saw a huge influx of new gun owners in 2020 - about 4.3 million in March and April alone. That means there are a lot of guns in the hands of folks who have never owned one before, and maybe never even shot one.
With that in mind, Jeff explains the four universal gun safety rules: (1) Treat EVERY gun as it's always loaded. (2) Always keep the muzzle pointed in a SAFE direction. (Safe = If the gun accidentally went off, it would cause minimal property damage and no injury or loss of life. (3) Always keep your trigger finger at the HOME position until you're actually ready to fire. (HOME position = where the bottom of the slide meets the top of the frame or just below a revolver's cylinder.) (4) Always be sure of your target and what's behind it. If you're not sure, you shouldn't be using deadly force.
