    Love it! Hope all da gangsta's are watching and learning from this!

    Next lesson, how to hold your pistol sideways!
    When you are dead, you don't know you're dead. It is difficult only for the others around you.

    It is the same when you are stupid.

      It was funny, but if you're going to use a real gun, why not show that it is unloaded before beginning the demonstration? Oh wait, you're supposed to TRUST that it's unloaded. Exactly the wrong message to send: no need to check it.

        That was funny. How did they do that and keep a straight face?

          No doubt someone will take the "finger trick" seriously.......and end up with a missing digit.

              I gotta say, the first thing I thought when I saw this "I'm going to get info from a dude rocking a porn 'stache." I was a bit slow on the uptake though, and it took a minute to realize it was satire. I was all "OMG - someone on the internet is wrong!!" Then I laughed.

                  Gun was an airsoft gun. Also, it's a satirical piece, not meant to be taken seriously, so I don't see why they would bother with something that wasn't meant to be serious.

                    I've heard of airsoft guns, but I've never seen one, and I was not able to identify it from the video. You're right that it is satirical, and not meant to be serious. But shouldn't gun safety override everything else, including humor? I don't know if you saw that recent thread where the woman almost kills her boyfriend with an AK-47 type rifle: I can't find the thread now, maybe it got deleted, but there was a woman firing a few rounds from the rifle, and then she somehow ended up accidentally pointing it at her boyfriend. I was really shocked, I didn't expect that. It made me realize that gun safety has a lot to do with rules that have been assimilated, and reside, in your subconscious mind, as a result of training and conditioning. This woman obviously didn't have the benefit of such training and conditioning, and she made a dangerous blunder there. If you would ask her what she was thinking, it would be something like this: "well I'm not going to shoot my boyfriend, duh!" The problem with her assumption is that she believes that everything about the firearm is consciously controlled: if she has no intention to shoot, then nobody will get shot: an understandable but deadly mistake. I thought the video below was hard to watch.

                      I absolutely agree with you wholeheartedly about firearms safety. Years of firearm use and training really makes the 4 basic rules second nature. Whenever I take my friends out to the range, regardless of how many times you go over safety guidelines, someone always forgets and sweeps the line, and I'm sure we've all heard "It's okay, the safety's on!"

                      I guess it really depends on the audience and the type of message they're trying to get across. If its solely for entertainment value and it's assumed that the firearms are not a threat to the actors or performers, I think it's often times overlooked. For example, TV shows or movies. They never do a safety check before doing a shootout scene largely because the audience already assumes that the actors are in no real danger. I think the same idea sort of applies to this video, although they are going with a pseudo-instructional type video. But I can understand the concern when the gun used looks rather convincing. I only knew it was a fake after he took out the magazine. That being said, I would never want a REAL gun pointed at me whether or not it's been checked to be empty, because a gun is never really unloaded in my mind. That video was scary, the boyfriend really screwed up on the safety factor. I'd never want to be filming within someone's 180. That's what tripods are for!

                        That's true. Maybe that should change: if Hollywood wants to make another movie with criminals & guns, put in a 30-second safety message. In the same spirit as 30-second TV car commercials include a disclaimer: "do not attempt; professional driver on closed track". But I think Hollywood is so elitist in their love-hate relationship with guns (guns are good to use in movies, but bad for everyday Americans to own), that they think they are somehow above all that, and normal people shouldn't own guns anyway, so there's no need for even a single word of warning about guns.

                          That would be very cool to have some kind of disclaimer. For example, the Fast & The Furious series, the last few ones had disclaimers about not doing the stunts on the streets and stuff. It would be a very nice PSA campaign.

                            Jesus I think you guys are taking this WAY too seriously. They probably didn't show them clearing it as another part of the comedy! Does that mean the actors themselves didn't actually clear it before filming? I would hope they did but that's not the point of the video.

                            That uneasy feeling you get when you see them pointing a live weapon at each other and actually pulling the trigger is what they were trying to make you feel.
