Around 1900, my grandfather and his cousin, both about 10, were fooling around with a loaded shotgun. His cousin was sitting down fooling around with the barrel in his mouth, my granddad accidentally tripped over the 12 gauge and it fired right in his cousin's mouth.

He would never speak about it again.


No shit. He didn't have a mouth.

I'll bet your grandad discussed it, though - every time he saw some dumbass kid with a shotgun in his mouth.

He calls himself Str8tEdge (with a random T in the middle - for no apparent reason). Don't ask me why (there is no apparent reason). Maybe it's nerdy wordplay (like "Str8teen" merged with "teenedge" ... or something peculiar like that). I'm sure it isn't something stupid (but you'd have to check with him to be certain).

We're not teaching gun safety - or any other new accountabilities - until teachers FIRST demonstrate competence in their core duties. Correct. That's how the adult, accoutable world works, teat boy. FIRST you prove you can make your bed like a big boy, THEN you get to go on overnights.

Why do you age regress when you get your ass handed to you? :huh:

You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity by legislating the wealthy out of prosperity.

What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving.

The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else.

You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it

Should it be a law that gun safes in homes where children reside be lawfully required? Unless you're under the impression that all gun owners with children will rush out to buy a gun safe as soon as they learn they're available. :rofl:

Your recommendation is wonderful and gee why didn't someone think of it sooner, but alas a fart in the wind in terms of reducing that number unless those who currently refuse to lock their guns safely away, do so.

I'll leave it to you then to enforce your recommendation. You can start with the Palins.

My opinion is if you can afford a gun and ammo, you can afford a safe. To me it's only common sense, helps if someone robs your house - but more importantly to deny access to kids.

IMO - people that own guns should take either an annual, or at least every two years - a gun safety course.

If there are guns around the house, my position is when kids reach an appropriate age, they are taught in direct terms the basics of guns - good and bad - and the responsibility that goes hand and hand with them, much like we do regarding vehicles. My Son was allowed to go to the range with me after his 7th birthday. In spite of him wanting to shoot, he had to listen, observe, and describe in-depth gun safety for a year. From 7 to 8 yrs old, he would be allowed to handle an empty handgun and rifle, for the purposes of learning, talking about, and demonstrating safety and the consequences of what a lapse in safety could mean. At 8 years old, he earned a bolt action .22 rifle. He shot that for a year, until at 9 years old he was allowed to shoot an AR15 and AR10. He doesn't like shooting the semi-auto shotgun which is fine. Education is everything - for everything.

For those that say it would take to long to get their handgun out of a safe if needed, I suggest a biotmetric safe. Mine opens in about 2 seconds, and will only open for myself or wife - no one else.

The leftist memes on this topic are absurd. Every single person I know is incredibly safety conscious, does things the right way - and are absolutely no threat to anyone. Instead screaming about scary black guns - the focus imo should be on those that commit these heinous crimes. Criminals, people on medication, and kids that shouldn't have access.

You obviously don't know the ones who are not safety conscious. If all gun owners fell into your anecdotal category, the number wouldn't be as high as it is.

Would you or would you not consent to a law that attempted to ensure that all those families with children you DON'T know had and used gun safes?

Gun cases and trigger locks are the key. But some will argue that by the time the gun gets out of the cabinet, you will be dead by then.

Except Chicago fails to cause Illinois to show up on the top 20 list of states with the highest gun deaths so I fail to see how that would solve the problem, meme stroker.

You must be a Tea Party member.


A liberal Yale professor's study shows TP members have a higher science literacy and awareness than other groups.

Personally, I see no problem with a handgun (or two), conveniently placed for retrieval, but well out of a child's ability to access it. It's usually carelessness on the part of the parents that cause handgun injuries and deaths to children.
