    If you're trying to impress me by citing an extreme case, you're failing miserably.  And that's why your proposal will never fly.  You need gun owners on board to get what you want, but you're not going to find many so long as you keep intentionally irritating them.

      and others every day.

      The front page has had examples of it for eight weeks now, so I am hardly citing "extreme" circs.

      As to storing ammunition in the oven, I have read of this happening every couple of years most of my life. Mythbusters did an episode proving that ammunition can "cook off" in an oven, and that while loose ammo was unlikely to hurt you, bullets in a gun will discharge with lethal force.

      But, hey, let's assume it's rare.

      You know what is NOT rare? Hitting bullets with a hammer!

      Google lists 9.5 million links:

      But, hey, a lot of those could be duplicates, so go over to Youtube and check out:

        How many people put guns in ovens every single day?  There's not much we're going to agree on here, so I'll just say that I disagree with you and I hope your proposal never becomes law.
