    problem. The Constitution says keep and bear arms. I maintain that keep means keep and is not a decorative term.

    1. Not maintaining possession of your gun should be a felony regardless of outcome. The responsibility now generally transfers to society when the gun owner loses possession. The gun owner says, don't you worry little lady my guns are fine, oopsie, someone took them, I lost them, better watch out, they are dangerous, I'm going to the store to get another.

    2. Shooting a gun by accident should be a felony regardless of outcome. Just because the bullet did no damage is not fault the person who accidentally shot the gun. The person who accidentally shot the gun had no idea where the bullet was going. Now it's just -- haw haw haw, that was close, I'm going to run to the store and get more ammo.

    There is no requirement of intelligence to buy a gun, so why should an idiot gun owner be a surprise?  We have a belly up to the bar requirement for gun ownership. Now it is pretty much anybody and the NRA is pushing for everybody ownership. Gun ownership has absolutely no effect on intelligence. It just makes unintelligent people more lethal.

    There are so many get out of jail free cards. Failure to keep should be a responsibility not taken lightly.

    Validate my parking Validate my parenting Validate my politics Validate my religion And I will be happy.
