The right to own a gun is protected by the U.S. Constitution. Recreational shooting, hunting and firearm collecting is deeply rooting in the fabric of our county. However, owning a firearm requires a heightened responsibility, because firearms are dangerous. “Treat all guns as if they are loaded,” is the simple but golden rule in firearm safety. Unfortunately, accidents happen and most often result in tragic injuries, and even death.
Most victims of accidental shootings in North Carolina are relatives or friends of the negligent shooter. Hunting accidents, accidentally leaving ammunition in the weapon, failing to keep guns safely stored away from children, and using firearms while consuming alcohol or drugs are some common firearm accidents in the state.
