    Repurposing "gun safety" smacks of patronizing manipulation, and of the kind that leaves voters feeling their intelligence has just been insulted.  There's no conviction behind it.

    I'm also sick and tired of how we abuse the term "common sense," especially when applied to the half measures the current crop of gun control advocates push.  If you want common sense regulation, get behind a ban.  A gun is a gun is a gun, and there's no reason why any civilian should have one absent some compelling extenuating circumstances.

      At least you have the guts to say what most of your peers won't.

        truly interesting is how the gun crowd is in it's own little bubble where guns and ammo and shop talk reign.

        Have any of you idiots heard of a guy named Pope Francis? He's changing the tenor of politics and pushing the debate leftward, in other words, a ban will be in the cards in maybe 4 to 5 years and you extremists will be relegated to the dust bin of history as the NRA's useful idiots.

        Think about that one, numb nuts.
