On Rule 1.
Three hours after I got home, it occurred to me that "All firearms are loaded" is a declarative statement designed to ensure that people treat guns with respect, not an assurance that a particular firearm is in fact loaded. Pity, that'd be a great logic hole by which to spawn new ammunition. Unload a gun, hide it somewhere, come back...it's loaded. Where'd that come from? Beats me, but all guns are loaded. It also reminded me that I should probably chamber-check the SIG.
