I noticed he started by checking everyone's gun and mag, and touching each (it was as if he was blessing them "blessed be thouh art unloaded").

It's a different mindset that allows for the concept of pointing an unloaded gun, and one quite foreign to the US civilian thinking of "treat all guns as if they are loaded all the time". There was a cop in RI a few years ago who was killed because an officer in a training exercise did not follow this simple rule.

This woman got killed because the "I know better" instructor hurr durred and then shot her in the chest during a drill with an "unloaded" handgun... I remember reading at the time that no live ammunition was allowed in the classrooms, but he thought he was above that, apparently....
