Colt's and "six up" carry

Can anyone explain to me why exactly carrying six rounds on half cock is considered so unsafe? Is this a modern "age of safety" notion or was it practiced in antiquity? I know some lever rifles with half cock safeties are considered safe so why not a Colt revolver? It may seem ignorant but I've always owned New Model Rugers until I bought my Walker replica.
