Actor Will Smith is making the rounds this week promoting his new film, “Bad Boys for Life,” co-staring the mercurial Martin Lawrence.
In one behind-the-scenes clip posted to Instagram, Smith demonstrates how to respond when someone unwittingly points a firearm in your direction.
Check it out:
Will added the caption, “It’s BAD Boys. Not UNSAFE Boys.” And in the video, states, “Terrible gun safety,” in reference to the dude’s poor muzzle awareness.
As we all know, there are four rules to firearm safety:
- #1 Treat all guns as if they are always loaded.
- #2 Never let the muzzle cover anything that you are not willing to destroy.
- #3 Keep your finger off the trigger until your sights are on target and you have made the decision to shoot.
- #4 Be sure of your target and what lies beyond it.
Clearly, others, especially those new to firearms, need to be reminded.
The Instagram clip has over 3.1 million views and 7,000 comments. Smith & Wesson, the Massachusetts-based firearms manufacturer, even responded to the video.
“100% proper way to correct someone who flags you! 🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸” said S&W.
While Hollywood is often at odds with the gun community, here is an instance where we can all get behind the same message: BE SAFE! Learn the Rules of Firearm Safety!
