Author's note: This post is my opinion and does not reflect the views of Townsquare Media.

What is wrong with Jesse Quackenbush? The Amarillo personal injury lawyer who opened a racially insensitive named establishment last month has taken his insolence to new levels. Recently a photo of Quackenbush was publicly posted on Facebook with him holding a gun to the head of an alien. Was he trying to make a point? Is the whole green alien mascot just another misguided piece of innuendo targeted at a specific race? The two unidentified women in the photo do not look very comfortable showing seemingly forced smiles. I feel sorry for them.

Rule number one in gun safety from the NSSF - The Firearm Industry Trade Association is:

This is the most basic safety rule. If everyone handled a firearm so carefully that the muzzle never pointed at something they didn’t intend to shoot, there would be virtually no firearms accidents. It’s as simple as that, and it’s up to you. Never point your gun at anything you do not intend to shoot. This is particularly important when loading or unloading a firearm. In the event of an accidental discharge, no injury can occur as long as the muzzle is pointing in a safe direction. A safe direction means a direction in which a bullet cannot possibly strike anyone, taking into account possible ricochets and the fact that bullets can penetrate walls and ceilings. The safe direction may be “up” on some occasions or “down” on others, but never at anyone or anything not intended as a target. Even when “dry firing” with an unloaded gun, you should never point the gun at an unsafe target.

The last thing Quackenbush needs to shoot off beside his bigoted rhetoric is the head of an alien, green or not.

Again, this is just my opinion and I want to know your thoughts. let me know in the comments.
