Navy ship accidentally fires on Polish port

"A crew member aboard a U.S. Navy ship accidentally fired a machine gun into the Polish port city of Gdynia on Wednesday while cleaning the weapon, Navy officials said Friday.

Three rounds were fired from an M240 machine gun into the town but no injuries or damage were reported, officials said.

The gun, aboard the USS Ramage, a Navy destroyer, is used to defend the ship in close combat.

Navy officials said a crew member was cleaning the weapon when it accidentally discharged."


What is firearm rule #1?

How many rules did they break?



Here is a hint.. They violated ALL of them..

Gun safety rules and mindset:

  1. Treat firearms as if they are loaded
  2. Point the muzzle away from non-targets
  3. Keep fingers off the trigger
  4. Be sure of your target and of what is beyond it

That is all.

I thought rule three was: "never point the gun at your father?"
