I have to see the same kind thing whenever I go with my family to Boston. For a while, on the outer wall of Fenway Park, there was this sign going on about how few gun laws had been passed. Then after 9/11 they put up a memorial sign. I was relieved, thinking that they had removed that gun grabbing eyesore. But at the far end of the sign there was in small letters "respectfully stop handgun violence." That sign seems worse than the previous, using 9/11 to push an agenda.

Yes, thank you...by the time I saw it....it was too late. You wouldn't believe the private emails I've gotten. Why, I even received one from the Catholic Church. <sarcasm

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

I have a 3 year old son who doesn't understand the meaning of responsibility yet. He will in time, but for now I'll just keep them out of his reach. The safe is primarily to prevent theft.

thw question should be: "Do you have a gun in the house? And, if not, WHY NOT! I won't let my kid stay at a home that is undefended. I can't believe that you do not care abou the safety and welfare of your children!"

I could honestly answer I do not have "A" gun in the house. I do however have a whole slew of guns in the house from air pistol to Class III.

So what have we learned? 60% of homes are owned by people who don't care what happens to their kids or dogs. A couple of years ago, we had some rather nasty home invasions. There were two groups operating about the same time. Unarmed people were killed and injured. That is until these criminal scum decided to play the odds and hit houses in the 40%. Their careers ended suddenly. For good. A mean dog would have just been another victim in these cases.

"ASK" is an offshoot of PAX.

A lot of us have fun with the idea of anti-gunners putting "gun-free home" signs on their lawns or in the windows of their homes - these geniuses at PAX actually had the signs, I got a bunch of them at a meeting a couple of years ago. They used to have them available through their website, but they've been "undergoing renovations" for quite some time now and don't have 'em up there, otherwise I'd happily link it. ;-)

Only 40%? I would bet that it is higher. At least I hope so. Anyone with a wife and kids who does not own, and know how to use a firearm, is a fool.

Do we have PUBLIC FEDERAL DOLLARS BEING USED TO FURTHER AN ANTIGUN AGENDA????

You're familiar with Arthur Kellerman, namesake of the famous study that the anti's quote unashamedly to this day (you're 43 times more likely blah blah blah), DESPITE the fact a congressional committee found that Kellerman manipulated his research toward an intended result - to discredit gun owners and encourage more gov't regulation. Why was a congressional committee investigating him? Because he was working through the Centers for Disease Control, which is funded by US taxpayer $'s. Congress ended up de-funding the CDC as a result. Read more here and here for starters.)

The whole damn study is bogus, it's gospel with anti's and media, and WE all paid for it.

Ugh - what a stupid ad.

Its liable to get worse. PETA has to resort to poor taste to get any attention at all. Once the antigunners see how bad this flops they will stoop lower.

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.

I know - that was mentioned on another forum as well. The poster suggested a photo of a little girl with a snorkel :)

From a magazine who's title harkens back to China's "Workers Daily" you were expecting rightous conservatism???

LOL - nope, I don't much care about the magazine itself. I'm more concerned about the group placing the ad(s).

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.

Ahem.

That's "Right-wing Christian Patriot Militia Extremist Wackos".

Practice saying it until you can casually use it to refer to yourself when conversing with Lieberals (Notice I didn't say, "communicating"). They turn amazing shades of mauve and puce.

Jews are especially encouraged to refer to themselves as Christians in the above context when conversing with Lieberals, *especially* Jewish Lieberals, since being Christian is politically incorrect among Lieberals and being Jewish is not (sorry, fellow Jews, but that's just the way it is). They turn a *most entertaining* dead green color...

(sorry to continue my harangue, but...)
I've been meaning to say, apropos of these intrusive, scurrilous attempts to intimidate gun owners (not that such a thing is possible, except in the minds (if any) of Lieberals because they themselves are in a constant state of fear and intimidation), that we need a to develop a "response" catechism of the same sort as the gun-grabbers' silly "interrogative" one. I.e., when asked, "Do you have guns in your house", one could respond with, "Do you have drugs in your house?" (I don't have any really good ideas here, but you get the drift).

Thus, when the word gets out that people asking such questions go away very unhappy, their "campaign" will backfire, and they'll have to go back to their leather-lined garrets and smoke more pot and try to dream something else up...

Geez...everyone's a critic! :-) I don't pay much attention to other media anymore, such as television or newspapers; so it's difficult to keep up with what I'm being labeled as nowadays. In any event, I will do my VERY BEST to practice over the next few days...thanks for the heads up!

40% of homes with kids have guns

100% have knives, 100% have medicine cabinets, 100% have lethal chemicals etc

I wonder what percentage has parental supervision?

Agree that with a 3 year old you need to be more careful. But if you can't get to it when you need to protect your 3 year old what good is it? But I am lazy. Rather than be on top of it every second I simply choose to be more vunerable and don't have access to my gun most of the time. But I don't kid myself. I know that my choice makes me more vunerable.
