How come it's always the unemployed losers that worry about where our tax money goes? I make so much that I don't have to worry about every penny and also understand that taxes go to help less fortunate people...like those that spent their free time googling how a gun works. Hahaha. Get a good job, then when your taxes actually cost you more than you cost us in food stamps let me know. I'm funny and smart. Let me know if I can help you with anything else.

ExNev speaks truly. One problem is that the three areas with extremely high violent crime rates (New York City, Chicago and California) also have extremely strict firearms laws. I believe Massad Ayoob (a well known firearms authority) said "an armed society is a polite society." nubgnngs42 also has a point. It's just not appropriate for this non-article.

Smartone, at least I know where $1.6 Billion of our taxpayers' money didn't go and care about it. The press never said if this Rifle and been modified, manufacturer, maybe a Mauser 98 of WWI origin, if factory or reloaded ammo (didn't want to look up ammunition), or other specifics, bullet weight, powder type and amount, primer type, etc that effect and determine the end results of the firing pin hitting the primer. The end result of a controlled explosion inside a brass shell casing that fit tightly inside a machined metal chamber. Now since you're so smart, Smartone, you know exactly what I'm taking about?

I was at that range last month, and man they DO run a "tight ship" over there. They do not mess around at all! The facility and staff are top notch. Too bad a gun and/or ammo malfunctioned. Heck, I have had brass cook-off several times....I've had barrels melt and seen alot of crazy "range stuff"....and it sounds like this fellow did the right thing. He did not make it to be a big deal. Steve....really?

Oh, and for "Smartone", try exploring the writings of many experts and scholars, on foreign policy, or even teaching our kids. A lot of them can't spell either. Let me know if you need any help with that, smart one.

For the uninformed (like I was), information about the "Mauser" bolt action, try Wikipedia at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mauser_M_98 And if you search for "Mauser bolt action problems", you may find some interesting and helpful information as well. Condemning something you know nothing about is foolish, and condemning some "one" you know nothing about is ignorance of the highest order.

nubgnngs42 makes a good point, so we're not going to coment on a word I'm sure he/she knows ho to spell, but didn't type right. We've all done it. Then you have steve. The only thing he/she (LOL) knows about guns is what he has learned from Hollywood or the liberal media. OK, so I saw the man at the range right after it happened. I was there to teach the better part of society how to defend themselves. The man was ok. Very lucky in fact. A friend of mine said that he was lucky it was a Mouser type action. And it was not an ambulance, it was a fire truck. ExNev makes another good point. I've seen many accidents wose than this happen in construction. They don't get reported.

I always find it so amusing that people who are experts and scholars on foreign policy have trouble spelling words like "denying". Here's an idea...maybe they report on stories like this because people, like you, read them and respond to them. Let me know if you need help with anything else.
