Welcome to Common Gunsense

I hope this blog will provoke some thoughtful reflection about the issue of guns and gun violence. I am passionate about the issue and would love to change some misperceptions and the culture of gun violence in America by sharing with readers words, photos, videos and clips from articles to promote common sense about gun issues. Many of you will agree with me- some will not. I am only one person but one among many who think it's time to do something about this national problem. The views expressed by me in this blog do not represent any group with which I am associated but are rather my own personal opinions and thoughts.

Sequel to guns discharging without the trigger being pulled

Well, it's happened again. This idea that a gun can discharge without someone pulling the trigger has "triggered" more than a few responses from my readers. Many think it is just not possible for this to happen. I have provided examples of incidents but some just don't believe them. Here is yet another one for your perusal. This article from the Springfield, Illinois, State Journal Register is yet another tragic story involving a gun. I can't see how anyone pulled a trigger in this case, can you? Another senseless death from a gun.
