So it's ideological position against the real world of human performance. In almost every area where human factors cause mishaps - someone says follow the rules, blah, blah - however if the gadget had an affordance for accidents with less than perfect RULE adherence - you are silly not to pay attention to it.
Exactly why I don't like Glocks and Glock clones. Too many accidental/negligent discharges. Glock may scream that it's the shooter's fault, and that the weapon is safe, but human factors being what they are, Glocks tend to go "Bang!" when they shouldn't a lot more than other designs.
Violence is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things. The decayed and degraded state of moral and valorous feeling which believes that nothing is worth violence is much worse. Those who have nothing for which they are willing to fight; nothing they care about more than their own personal safety; are miserable creatures who have no chance of being free, unless made and kept so by the exertions of those better than themselves.
