Unless she is an accomplished safe cracker she would never even see my guns. Responsible owners secure their weapons.

Ask your kids friends parents if you should worry about their kid rummaging through your draws. Ask them if their liquer cabinet is locked....how about their medicine cabinet?

This is funny. I have a friend who says she won't let her kids play at our house because I have a shotgun.

When I asked her what she would do if some bad guy threatened her or her kids, she says her dog would protect her.

I like her, but she's delusional to think an untrained house dog is going to do anything except pee on the carpet. I find that most anti-gun people live in a fantasy-world. When confronted with reality, it'll be too late.

How the heck can they say that, that vest does not fit properly. ;-)

Responsible owners always have a loaded gun within close proximity and easily accessible, but teach their children proper gun rules and to never touch it unsupervised.

You should have screwed with her and said, "What if I, I mean he, shoots your dog?"

Yep. That's how it is at my house. Mom & daughter both have easy - but hidden - access.

Also ask them what kind of dog they own, and if it has a history of agressive behavior.

"Over 40% of homes with children have a gun." The better to protect the children, I say.

I get the feeling that the only reason why they really want the kids to ask is to turn them into neighborhood informants. Same thing they're doing with doctors.

You'd be better off asking if they have any 5 gallon buckets than guns. Far more more children drown in those than are killed by gun accidents.

In which case the "proper attire" would be a body bag.

The "bang_list" isn't a predefined group of FReepers, at least, not that I know if. It's a keyword that connects to a specific subgroup on FreeRepublic that anyone can point their browser to using the following URL:

You might want to be careful with that 'bang list', Mr. Adams...there's a LOT of those "right-wing extremist, pro second amendment, Christian-type WEIRDOS" on there! :-) Not sure how that 'list' thingie works myself; perhaps Anna or Merc can help you out.

BINGO!!! Thanks to subtle little propaganda like this ad; when it comes time to confiscate the guns, YOUR neighbors will know right where they are! Think there will be a reward?

When "little Johnny's" parents get too nosey, ask...

"Have you put little Johnny through a program like the NRA's Eddie Eagle course? No? Gee, I'm sorry Mr. and Mrs. Nosey, but your little Johnny isn't allowed to play at our house until I know that he's been properly educated. I know that this will upset him, but I can't let your child endanger mine. Since you love your child, you understand, don't you?"

Oh, so she has an ADMITTEDLY dangerous dog???

I would not let my child play there until the Assault Dog has been removed.

Turnabout and all....

Shoot with your kids - teach 'em right. My daughtest shot a .45 this weekend and loved it.

More children were accidentally killed by drowning in 2000 than by guns. Shouldn't they should walk around in life-preservers instead?

Do you mean draws or drawers? Kids rummaging through my draws would get one of us arrested. Unless you intended this for another thread in which case, abstinence makes the church grow fondlers.

I saw an anti-gun ad on TV which really PISSED ME OFF!!! This little kid's voice (about 5 years old) says how she accidentally killed another kid with a gun. Poor little kid; poor little voice. Then they come on saying we should all lock up our guns to keep them away from kids, like we don't already know how to protect our kids! Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!

Feel free to use any or all of these whenever you see fit, and that goes for everyone else here.

The last time I saw one of these ads, also at the doctor office, I took a pen out of my purse and wrote a few messages on the ad. At least if anyone else saw it after I did, they knew what I thought about the ad.

Responsible owners secure their weapons.

Why secure your weapons? When I was growing up my parents didn't have to secure their weapons to keep me away from them. They taught me to use and respect guns. My first 410 shotgun stood taller than me.

I didn't secure my weapons from my kids either. When are parents going to take the lead here and teach responsibility to their kids instead of locking things up so that they can't get to them? That doesn't teach them a darn thing - it just raises their curiosity and their desire to get to this evil thing that they are not supposed to have.

Put a gun in their hand and teach them safety and responsibility!!
