He didn't know how to use it safely because he didn't have a manual because he didn't bother to steal the manual.
Now it says, right on the gun, to read the manual before you use it so it's harder for someone to claim that Ruger is at fault for their own boneheadedness.
Someone dumb enough to do what he did wouldn't benefit from a message he had to read
anyway. Not because he couldn't read, but because he would've been too lazy to bother.
It is especially depressing to see Ruger's ugly message on the barrel of the otherwise vintage looking Blackhawks and Bisleys.
