These people are the reason I am glad to have my OWN range!
I would have a serious conversation with your son in law about safe storage of his pistol around the kids. That is totally irresponsible and negligent on his part.
The safe slows you down to defend an intruder in your house. It's not worth it. Train everyone in family. Past in America, almost everyone knew how to handle the gun. Liberals has won in this battle.
This country is full of people who want to control others..It's each individuals job to understand the safety and responsibilities of gun ownership. If they choose not to use common sense then so be it. If i see unsafe gun handling or other stupidity I usually say something and then remove myself from the situation. I don't actively engage with new shooters who can't grasp basic safety and will leave a range if I see unsafe handling which isn't corrected by the staff.
Sometimes my five granddaughters, ages 3 to 13, have a hard time understanding proper stance (Isosceles? Weaver? Variation?), clearing jams, quick mag changes, etc. I'm thinking the safe is a good idea for a few more years.
And this is why all guns should be banned!
No. The next time those who want to ban guns get majority, they eliminate the option. It's much easier to change a law than get a restrictive one passed. So, no.
Let the State stay out of training requirements and push for repeal of those State laws that have them now.
Yep, we were.
I remember when i first started CCing I was absolutely CONVINCED that i was printing and that everyone knew I had a gun and that I was going to be stopped by a police officer.
I also thought that I was going to set off alarms in stores and libraries.
Now, its as much a part of my daily routine as putting on my tie.
Yes but some of us had Fathers around to teach us and we grew up knowing the rules and safe handling. I see what the OP is concerned about. There are a lot of people who are into adulthood and practically buying the first gun they've ever touched. It is foolishness not to be a bit concerned, I know the media gets concerned when they have an accident and then that concerns a lot of voters, maybe even influences them.
Some of us have taken steps like making sure our LGS is well stocked with free handouts about gun safety and safe handling. Our only LGS around here is very good about helping newbies and they have called me at home and ask me to come down and bring a couple of mine to help instruct first-time buyers who way want to order something that I happen to have.
Just saying "Oh well, they'll learn" is something I can't feel good about sitting still and saying.
Join the NRA (if you haven't already) and get certified as a basic pistol instructor. Then offer classes, not for profit, and try to help people, and help spread the word.
A lot of people are new shooters looking for help. The more we make the educational resources available, the more they will be utilized.
I know that you know of some hard core guy who won't take any gun safey tips from anyone. But that shouldn't stop us from helping those who are actually open to learning more about shooting and about safety.
Wow, you actually wear a tie to wal-mart?
It's easier not to shoot someone than it is not to bump into them while driving. Just saying...
Yes, and woman that never held a gun prior to borrowing one from a friend a couple days prior was able to stop her crazy neighbor/co-worker from killing her with a knife. No training per se.
Gun ownership works in SD situations sans training. Is training a great idea? Yes. Should it be mandated by .gov? No.
I like having to do actual training in order to carry. I wouldnt want just anyone carrying if they dont know how to use it.
I am concerned about many gun owners, when i see someone shooting teacup hollywood weaver and pitching rounds in the dirt from flinching and fumbling through reloads its painful, when i see muzzle sweeping its scary
I think this is the first time I've agreed with one of your posts.. But I wholeheartedly agree with this one.
Classiest lookin redneck you've ever seen
Sometimes..... i even wear sleeves.
Shouldn't we implement the same level of concern, regulation, and oversight on all the things equally or more deadly (on an accidental basis) than firearms? That list would include:
Choking on foreign objects
and then they do exactly what Chicago did, "Yes, it's possible but we didn't get any more forms printed so you cannot fill one out" Poof, instant gun ban without a law passed.
Do people never learn or do people STILL actually believe there is such thing as "compromise"?
Required training (and licensing) for carry is a modern day poll tax.
The right to arms IS the natural right of self defense. A fundamental right like speech and requiring training and licensing for for firearms is basically like requiring training and licensing to not wear a muzzle & gag in public. It would be like requiring training and licensing to post on the Internet. Like requiring training and licensing and fees before you can worship at a public church.
