Re: The reports so far with some editorial....

Full disclosure:

I worked on small arms proof testing for NATO for several years. I've fired more rounds through more different weapons than 99% of NRA members, but I've never owned a weapon personally nor wanted to.

After tens of thousands of rounds from 4.5mm to 12.7mm, covering just about every military issue weapon on the planet (and many civilian), fired into everything from paper targets to pig carcasses to chobham armour I find it insane that there is less oversight associated with being a helicopter pilot than being a gun owner. I wouldn't even trust me with a gun now because I'm over a decade out of practice and would need a couple of weeks daily practice to ensure all my safety muscle memory was back.
