  •  So those listed here are lying. (3+ / 0-)

    Certainly could be true. Either way, it puts a giant hole in the Responsible Gun Owner meme. Why so much lying to the police and health care providers?

    But yes, I actually did know that.

    I can indeed understand why someone who devotes care and attention to following safety rules gets upset about this. And I have seen it suggested by gun advocates that those who get upset are going to have to be the people to stop indulging the ones who give the rest a bad name. No more back-slapping down at the range and the gun shop. Sloppy and careless gun owners get ostracized. "No, you can't shoot with me. No, you can't see my weapons. No, I don't want to see yours. I take this seriously and only share with others who do, too."

    I think that'd be a great idea.
