The people who believe they will go off by themselves aren't the ones blowing holes in their heads demonstrating a manual safety.

People that don't own firearms know what they know only through Hollywood and the MSM.
I am familiar with the Eddie Eagle program and must disagree. The EE program teaches children not to handle guns without supervision and if there is a gun laying around for them to leave it alone and tell an adult. It has never, never ever said or implied that a firearm could go off by itself.
Agree. EE just says "don't touch" to infer they're dangerous. It doesn't need to explain WHY to kids, but just to keep their hands off them. Ideally, the parents should give the detailed information.
