If you don't respect it, you don't need one.

Turns out he went back to his truck to get the gun and unload it there. 40 cal. pistol. Went off down his leg.

Ouch....
Treat everyone of them AS IF they are loaded. That means:

RULE I: ALL GUNS ARE ALWAYS LOADED (treat them that way, with respect.)
RULE II: NEVER LET THE MUZZLE COVER ANYTHING YOU ARE NOT WILLING TO DESTROY
Rule III: KEEP YOUR FINGER OFF THE TRIGGER UNTIL YOUR SIGHTS ARE ON THE TARGET
RULE IV: BE SURE OF YOUR TARGET (and what is beyond it.)

Follow them and you won't have any accidents.

To add people are not to walk in a place with a firearm unless in a case or the slide or bolt is open otherwise you very well can be considered a threat you hand the pawn or gun shop people the gun for them to touch.
