Unfortunately, far too many guns kept in a family home for "safety from outsiders" wind up being used to kill beloved family members, whether by accident, (such as children who find the guns - PARENTS AT FAULT ON THIS ONE!), and spouses who wind up shooting each other during the "passion" of an argument or all out fight. I will NEVER keep a gun in our home! Tricia in NJ ~.

Tricia, would you feel safer putting a sign in front of your house saying "TRICIA'S HOUSE IS A GUN FREE ZONE"? When the bad guys come, just call 911 so the police will know where to come and draw the chalk outlines around your body.
Me, I feel safer with my guns and teaching my children (ages 11 and 8) the safe use of them, like my father taught me, his father taught him, etc, etc. Never been a single gun incident in any of our houses. It's called 'knowledge' which overcomes irrational...

It's called 'knowledge' which overcomes irrational fear of inanimate objects or blathering, semi-literate politicians pulling your heart strings.
BTW: How many deaths have been caused by politicians?

Drew Shedwick, my daughter's husband keeps a gun in the house, as did generations of farmers before him -- and, as in your family, he first TAUGHT my daughter how to use it, and it is properly locked up, separate from the bullets. When the kids are old enough, they will ALSO be taught proper gun use AND the understanding that it IS a deadly weapon. I completely understand what you're saying. Unfortunately, I"M the "crazy one" in this household, lol, so maybe it's ME I'm afraid would misuse it! LOL! Tricia ~

I also am a cashier at WalMart. Wish we could stop selling firearms and limit the amount of alcohol we sell.

Yes Banning certain guns and clips will do NOTHING to stop the violence. It's PEOPLE that kill.

Taking guns away will not solve anything.Although I see no need for machine guns in civilan life. When will they learn it's the negative implants from their role models! Athletes, hollywood, video games, music, internet porn, people pitted against each other via the media with regard to race or religion. Sex is so open and common, yet we wonder why there are so many kids that can't be cared for? Sex is just sport now. Ask my son, he's tired of hearing it..Garbage in and Garbage out! How...

So I'm confused is this about child poverty , child safety, or gun control? I belong to several of the organizations listed in the cause request, and I work with kids, but most of them are not pro gun control, and it seems like this is just a gun site posing as a site that wants to help children in some way. I am all for making children a priority, but we spend tens of thousands of dollars per child every year on public education, health care, other programs, organized outreach, and...

So I'm confused is this about child poverty , child safety, or gun control? I belong to several of the organizations listed in the cause request, and I work with kids, but most of them are not pro gun control, and it seems like this is just a gun site posing as a site that wants to help children in some way. I am all for making children a priority, but we spend tens of thousands of dollars per child every year on public education, health care, other programs, organized outreach, and childcare, and look what we are getting? My experience is that its not about programs, money, lack of effort, or making them a priority, its about how we do what we do, and what these kids see and feel about how we conduct ourselves and our business. And its darn sure not about guns! Gun control never works, never has worked, and never will work. In fact some of the best programs I have seen are built around the shooting sports and guns. They teach responsibility, awareness, discipline, and respect for yourself, and those around you, and for the guns themselves. We are the problem, and our leaders are the problem. These kids see the lies, and hypocrisy better than we do, ask any kid about what he hears at home, and he thinks feels about his future, and then what he wants us to do? He will not tell you to form a "national commission on children" to study kids more! We already have the HHS, the Education Department, the CDC, and countless State, local, and private groups that have, and are "studying" children. What kids want is time with their parents who either are working to much, not married, or who they never even knew in the first place. What they want is to have teachers that care about them and teach them, not about paper work, social programs, and studying for mandated TESTS. They want to see some chance that they could get an education without being $60 to $80 Grand in debt, or their parents being ruined and spending their life savings, UNLESS they are in the lucky 10 or15%. They want to see a future after they get a degree that is not their old room again, with their now broke parents. They want to leaders that don't make a fortune while they lie and pass the buck down the road to ruin. Its not the kids that need a commission, its the Government, and its our culture that needs one... maybe run by a group of kids?
