    Leaving tools of any kind where children can access them is irresponsible. Sort of like passing laws that don’t address such issues.

    I have several handguns and I have children and grandchildren. My youngest grandson is very curious and shows interest in weapons of all types ( I have swords, axes, knives and rifles as well).

    So what to do? Lock everything up? Well, yes. It IS the law when they are in the house the handguns go in the safe and the rifle’s have trigger locks. Fine.

    But what happens when the little guy goes to the house of an idiot?

    When the kids express an interest or are just curious, then I go into training mode. We take it down, we check the load/unload status, the kid handles the weapon and learns about it’s function and when old enough (they all are) we go to the range and fire them.

    Nothing like a good education to keep you safe.

    As a gun owner we need stronger gun control. Any owner that allows their gun to kill even by accident are more responsible than that dog owner who’s dogs killed a jogger.

    Perhaps some gun owners keep loaded guns too accessible for defense from strangers that cause death in their own family. Sadly it does not surprise me. I swear I know a guy who keeps a gun over his front door. Pesky salesmen?

    I keep all my guns n a leash so that they can’t kill anyone. Seriously…guns are inanimate objects..like hammer…they cannot do anything by themselves. People kill with guns.

    "Consider toning down your hateful, biased an’ vicious rhetoric…

    Why? You approve of children being shot? And don’t want to be criticized for it?

    I agree, Omn’s response is too much like the response seen from the NRA leadership.

    Hopefully there will come a day when the adults stop acting like kids and will not be driven to collect and play with their hand guns and assault weapons like they are shiny fascinating play-toys.

    I will never understand why conservatives will always blame either Obama or liberals for everything. That is what I call paranoia, Bigtime. Get a life.

    “As a gun owner” is an automatic flag that you are telling a lie.
    @Omnius – We call you a “victim,” especially after someone robs and beats you when you could have ended it quite simply. If civilians are cowards for carrying a firearm, then why are the police carrying them? We face some of the same liberal mass murderers and loonies that they do.

    Why is it that the ones trying the hardest to strip us of basic freedoms the ones who were not brave enough to wear a uniform to protect these same freedoms?

    If this one is deleted, so is your strip in my bookmarks.

    “Your attack-mode language is insulting, demeaning, and offensive…”
    I can’t help but agree that Omnius is in an aggressive mood today, but for Conservatives to criticize Liberals for their “attack-mode language” is completely hypocritical and quite laughable. We don’t like it from you anymore than you like getting it back.
    You can be the “peace-makers,” step back and create a new civility, or you can keep on swinging and expect it to come right back to you.

    “So you would rather sit in a chair and watch thugs with guns break into your home tie you to your chair and then bring your wife and kids into the room and shoot and kill each of them in front of you and leave you alive?”
    Does this happen often to you, or your family or friends? You seem to live in a horrible, frightening world. If this is how you envision your future, then you should keep a loaded, cocked gun in your hand at all times, just in case. And never sleep, or in anyway let down your guard, just immediately shoot anyone who looks “scary” to you.

    Well said! A perfect solution.

    " We face some of the same liberal mass murderers and loonies that they do."
    You don’t know Liberals very well if you think that they are the kind to do murders of any kind. Murder is a totally selfish act, and a true Liberal isn’t selfish; the true Liberal is selfless, and therefore wouldn’t cold-bloodedly kill anyone. Self-defense, or defense of family, perhaps, but murder?
    No…unless he/she is a LINO (Liberal In Name Only).
