Most guns I know have the very sensible feature of a safety switch. It
does make it harder to accidentally shoot oneself in the foot, but I
have not heard very many people complain about it.

Most guns also have a shield in front of the trigger, and require a
substantial force to actually trigger. The ease of shooting oneself in
the foot is severely hampered by this, but again I do not see many
complain about it.

I think that "better safe than sorry" is a more sensible approach. One
can in general not revive dead peop^Wdocuments.
