Re: Pro-gun article

I bet gun owners in Boston are happy to have the home protection today.

What else would you do if a runaway terrorist picks your house to hide in?

Here's a scenario that's just as plausible: You go swimming in the ocean, you get a whale caught up your arse. Greenpeace are coming at you in a dingy, what do you do?

There should be flukeprint sensors for whales that want to buy guns.
Of course a whale holding an AR-15 would really be a tight fit, albeit painful.

I think the best thing is for gun owners to have their firearms locked up safely at all times when not in use, and I don't mean in a glove compartment in a locked car or a closed drawer in a locked house, but an actual safe.

Thus making it useless. No, I will keep mine virtually undetectable and close to hand. If someone broke into my place I want it handy.

Why would it make it useless? Due to the time it would take to open the safe? What are your thoughts on making gun owners that have guns stolen from them that aren't locked up being held liable if their gun is used in a murder? (Honestly want your thoughts not being snarky)

Sorry dude, but what you're saying is ridiculous and waaaaay out there.
You seriously want to discuss jailing people because someone stole their property? Thats looney tunes.
Do you know anything at all about firearms?

Re: Pro-gun article

I will confess that I have had very uncomfortable experiences with firearms. However my basic opinion is that if you want to own a gun it is your right and who am I to say you shouldn't. I would just like safety and accountability from those that do own guns, this stems from my personal experiences. I have fired guns and enjoy shooting ranges.

Fair enough.
But the "big picture" needs to be considered very heavily when you talk about radical (very radical) law changes for gun owners.
Like I said before there are an estimated 300++ million guns out there that belong to private owners.

Re: Pro-gun article

No doubt. I am guessing that liability of gun owners is going to be the pathway gun control advocates are going to try to pursue next since they can't get current gun control agendas passed. I have also heard of requiring gun insurance, which imo won't do a damn thing.

I disagree, I think it will help a lot. Tax gun owners , make them have insurance and fee the hell out of them, price ammunition to the moon .As you have seen even when you use logic as with your suggestion about gun safes ,you get insulted. What the right wing gun nuts don't get is this is about gun safety ,not their right to own guns.

Poor don't have a right to defend themselves?

There have already been suggestions to charge $10 a round in an attempt to price gun ownership into collapse. Then only the rich will be able to afford guns.

If you can't see the stupidity of an idea when others point it out maybe this thread isn't for you?

I'll make the statement in clearer terms for you, GiantOne: If the weapon you have to defend yourself is made impractically unavailable why have it?

Yes, that's a great way for the anti-gun hippie wankers to achieve their goal of a harmonious 'rainbows and unicorns skipping free land of peace'.
