people make mistakes. these particular people should not be allowed to own the firearms any longer, having proved they cannot handle the responsibility.

We all know that if it hadn't been a gun, it would have been a knife. If a 4 year old wants you dead, he will f*cking find a way.
 
2012-12-02 01:33:20 AM
To avoid this sort of thing, don't leave items in reach of small children that explode or release deadly projectiles. That includes guns, nail guns, dynamite and poison-dart blowguns. Whatever your position on gun rights, just use a little common sense. The terms "unsupervised" and "4-year-old" also rarely bode well.

If the 2 year old had been armed, this would have never happened. All our gun laws do is take guns out of the hands of law-abiding 2-year-olds, and then only the 4-year-olds have guns.

Yes, they should. I'm all for owning guns, I have several myself. I think everyone should have some. Big, fully automatic guns with 50 round magazines.

But if you cant keep your firearms out of the reach of children you have no business owning one!

The 2nd Amendment gives them the right to own one. Just because it makes you want to tinkle doesn't take that right away.

The golden rule of thumb with children is that they will always, repeat ALWAYS find the single most dangerous item in the room, even if hidden, and immediately begin to play with it. They will find this item within seconds of entering the room, no matter what you may think.

As a parent, your only options are to either sweep every room continuously removing and/or locking up anything that could be dangerous, OR, you can actually watch them. Actually, the best plan is (C), all of the above.

Well, D is what I do, so, yo, listen up:

I put a towel on the floor by the two inch gap under the door
Now they can't see me any more.
Check the locks so they can't clock, but they can listen.

I really wish trigger lock + gun purchase was a little more widespread. If you don't actually want to implement it, well, that's your business if you expect a home invasion or Obama's Stormtroopers to kick down your door,

You're also welcome to leave your keys in the ignition in your car. But for some strange reason I think that having weapons lockable so that only the people what are responsible for them can use them is a good idea.

How many more little derps must die before we finally outlaw horrendously out of style 70's furnishings? I'll bet it didn't even have its safety engaged. And it certainly was kept fully loaded.

Nothing. He never says anything of substance, merely tosses out random talking points like poo, and then waits for someone to fling it back so he can start a trollerific argument that will go nowhere.

I myself cannot fathom why anyone with small children would NOT keep guns securely locked away, just like I can't understand why those same people don't keep cleaning solvents, knives, pit bulls, prescription medications and swimming pools also securely locked away. Everyone I know has kept all those items (including the firearms) secure and not sacrificed any of their civil rights AND raised all their kids to the age of reason without any accidental shootings. Why securing your weapons is somehow more of a Constitutional matter than securing your Drano has never been adequately explained to me.

However I have been accused on more than one occasion of being far too pragmatic to live in this world, so my arguments may have no merit.

Convict them of felony child endangerment or misdemeanor family violence bam, no guns. It is a right that can be taken away from criminals.

I'm saying all weapons can be locked up. It's not hard. But if you don't supervise your kid, just locking up guns (or worse, requiring all guns to be locked at all times) is stupid. We might as well put vision tests and alcohol interlocks on every car. If you don't watch your 2 y/o and 4 y/o, they may die. This is not a new concept.


I agree about the supervision, but I'd have to ask... Did anything your parents do prevent you from say... Pornography?

Prolly not. You probably found ways around parental restrictions and wanked like crazy like everyone else.

Guns, if properly used, kill large mammals.. You may not want your child to take out the sort of large mammals found in a typical housing development.

I wish gun owners were a little less wound up about "TEH SECOND AMENDMENT" and a little more responsible about gun ownership. 

I have a CSB involving the time when I worked at the NRA's headquarters.

To elaborate:

You can have a kid. You can own a gun. But if you have a small child, and you choose to own a gun, you should be serving hard time if that kid somehow gets hurt by that gun. No excuses.

While I agree with responsible gun ownership, perhaps gun owners would be less "wound up" if the cretins out there would stop trying to use any excuse to disarm the public.

I used to have a client that rented space in the NRA headquarters building in Fairfax.I smoke, so unsurprisingly I heard ll sorts of things that wouldn't be repeated where the boss could hear it. I engaged this one guy from the NRA and he basically said "Yeah, we wind people up to fatten up the coffers, and we scare people too. Pose the scariest thing ever, and that's what people respond to!

Now, I could have been Libby McLibberson from the Gun Grabber Gazette for all he knew. He was proud of what he had done, and wanted to be known. Worst part? His older colleagues who had been there forever didn't say he was wrong. Yeah, that's what the NRA thinks of it's constituents.

Nobody worries about your neighbor's pool but your kid is far more likely to drown in it than get shot by your other neighbor's gun. People just fixate on gun deaths because they are loud and gruesome events.

Obviously, lockable furniture is the only way to go. We should require people to store stuffing and the frame separately.

I see no problem with this. The kids will hopefully grow up in a safer, smarter environment, and Mom and Dad get to exercise their 2nd Amendment rights. A happy ending for everyone. Right, Penman?

Are you a troll, retarded, or both? Most places have provisions like this, or this.

This is common knowledge, especially amongst gun owers or gun rights supporters. So you're either trolling or you're dumber than a bag of dicks.
