  •  It is a good thing that there are people... (0+ / 0-)

    ...willing to bring guns into our homes without our permission, since they are so much better at judging what is in the best interest of ourselves and our families in our own homes.

    Obviously, we are misinformed in believing that we are safer without guns in our own homes, and we need somebody to bring their guns into our homes to make us safer, even if we don't appreciate what a favor they are doing for us by helping us get over our hysterical fears of guns in our own homes.

      understand when folks have the stance that you do and generally respect it, meaning we wouldn't dream of bringing a loaded weapon into your home.  It frightens and angers you, why would we want to do that?   So, who you see in your home with dangerous scary weapons have them pointed at you and mean great if not mortal harm.  I don't blame you for being afraid of that, that's reasonable.  What's not reasonable is believing that there is one and only one kind of person in your presence and armed.

        most responsible people understand when folks have the stance that you do and generally respect it, meaning we wouldn't dream of bringing a loaded weapon into your home.

        That is why I offered up the rule.

        It is already being followed by responsible gun owners out there. The ones who respect people and their private homes.

        It is only an imposition on irresponsible gun owners who attempt to sneak guns into peoples' private homes without asking permission first.

        The fact is that it is possible to own guns and be responsible, even if some folks aren't responsible.

          in speech is a good indication of having poor judgment, meaning most of the people here would never get past my front door--armed or not.  I like a peaceful environment and can be quite firm with those who violate that.
