http://www.bulldogcases.com/case-vaults/images/large/BD1150SM_Open_LRG.jpgYup! I wasa at a bike shop one day and this guy in front of me asked for the cheapest bike helmet he could buy! Lordy, his bike probably cost 2 grand! AND his life must be worth more than a cheap helmet! But, people are not necessarily smart about some things!

I wonder if the cheapest helmet was DOT approved?

People will spend hundreds, if not thousands of dollars to buy a gun and all the related supplies - ammunition, slings, holsters, hearing and eye protection, scopes, magazines, reloading equipment, etc. But won't spend money to keep it secure and save lives.

Keeping a gun secure is a start down that slippery slope of banning all guns. . .

actually, I believe I've seen arguments against locking up guns. I really believe some would see it as a slippery slope.
Let's try a little experiment; let's try and pass a law requiring all guns be locked up and let's see if the NRA supports it.

So have I. Most of the arguments against locking up guns revolve around self-defense and most have been shown to be, well, bogus. There are safes to allow quick access for personal defense.

Let's try a little thought experiment. Lock up your guns yourself and take responsibility, so you don't need a law requiring it.

Just to make Phillip happy, when I get home Im a gonna empty the gun safe. There'll be pistols, shotguns, and rifles laying around every where. I think I'll even put a bowl in the foyer full of miscellaneous cartridges. Seems like a good grass roots way to undemonize the simple tools we call guns. Bunch of frikking hoplophobes. . .

How do y'all think an AR would look hanging above the fireplace? Maybe a couple of 1911's bracketing it on the mantel. Cocked and locked of course. I just love saying that. Cocked and Locked

You have a lock on your door right? And house is wood framed? Perfect. Should meet the standard of a well constructed wood box with a lock.

Good job Paul. Glad to see you leading the charge.

Ah. Grandpa's AR over the fireplace. Lovely. Sure it is a large enough caliber?

You have a lock on your door right?I think I locked the door once sever years ago. I don't recall why. Maybe I was afraid someone would walk in on Nico and inadvertantly wake him from his nap on the couch.

Of course they won't. Let's be real. A gun that is locked up is likely not going to come in very handy if/when it is needed in a hurry. On the other hand, I think gun owners should be held accountable when their gun falls into the wrong hands, and they should be required to carry gun insurance.

Require insurance is something the NRA might go along with.

You characters are a bit too much today! Funny in the worst possible way. Wonder if Phillip is spying on this thread? Hope so!

they should be required to carry gun insurance.And price the poor folks out of being able to afford a gun? May as well repeal the 2nd altogether.

Wouldn't it be great if the NRA subsidized guns and ammo for low income folks?

Here's the way to do it. Any weapons/ammunition confiscated by law enforcement must be distributed through local food banks.
