Breaking two out of four gun safety rules

Sometimes I get bored when I’m done practicing, and I do stuff like that. Then for some reason, I post the video on the internet, likely because I’m a terrible person and an attention whore. But it got me thinking about a lot of things that we do in the gun culture without actually thinking about them. Like the four rules, for example. Sure we can all quote them chapter and verse, but why are they important? And are we actually learning anything if we teach people to recite them by rote?
