Kimberlin Unmasked has an interesting post up about AR15 ownership in Maryland. The picture illustrating the article shows an AR15 owner with his rifle demonstrating very poor firearm safety. One of the most basic rules is “Keep your finger off the trigger till your sights are on the target.”
Oh, and if you look closely, you’ll see that the safety selector is pointing upward in the FIRE position.
Also note the reduced capacity (legal for Maryland) magazine.
