GSSF is specifically designed for new, and thus ignorant, shooters.
I think the purpose of this rule is if someone shows up with a "hot" gun.
A Law Enforcement officer, someone with a CCW, or just some moron who carries a loaded gun in a gun bag.
The rule allows any RO to march them over to a handy berm and safely unload.
