  •  Who Are These People? (6+ / 0-)

    I am not a gun owner. Fired a small gauge shotgun twice.

    But most folks I know have a lot of guns. They would NEVER hand me a loaded gun in their household, much less in public.

    When opportunity calls pick up the phone and give it directions to your house.

      inattentive, or careless. It's not so much the who as the what.

        A professional.
        Makes you feel warm inside, knowing that such well trained, careful people are applying their vast expertise to gun safety.

        If I ran this circus, things would be DIFFERENT!

      from an ex who is a gunsmith, to children in the military, to all my LE relatives, to the fact that I live in an Open Carry state. It's hard to go anywhere and not see guns here, if you know what to look for.

      The only ones I've come to trust with guns are my children in the military and their friends, and my LE relatives.

      The gunsmithing acquaintances are probably the most careless of all the gun owners and handlers I know.  "Aw, shoot, ma'am, it's jest a lettle ol' bullet. Caint' harm ya none." is a common response I get when I look at a gun at a gun show and notice it's loaded and point it out to the dealer. I've stopped going to gun shows. It pegs my "danger, danger" meter now.

      It wasn't like that 15 years ago.  You'd go to a gun show and you'd know each and every gun in there was unloaded. The gun shows around here had a policy that ammo and guns had to be kept on separate tables and if a dealer had both, they had to buy at least 2 tables.

      All knowledge is worth having. Check out OctopodiCon to support steampunk learning and fun. Also, on DKos, check out the Itzl Alert Network.
