Interesting.Now LV "entrepaneurs" are teaching these folks how to
use a gun?Only in this city with a reputation of short, shoddy
relationships and quickie marriages would this flourish.Easy to guess
what, most likely, comes next. Stay tuned.
"Gun owners are already responsible for acts committed by their guns"Not that I have seen. When a kid gets daddys loaded gun out of the
nightstand and kills himself, are there charges filed against the dad? Not that
I have seen.I applaud you for locking your guns and teaching your
kids. I wish all gun owners did the same.
@Owlmaster2. Thank you for once again missing the point. My guns are locked in
a safe. When my young children want to see them, I take them out for them and
let them handle them and become familiar with them. They take the Hunters Safety
course. I take them to the range to practice. I try to teach them good gun
safety. I take them hunting. They know guns are not toys. Gun owners are
already responsible for acts committed by their guns, just like any other
citizen and their property whether a car, ATV, or at your home. Neither you or I
know how "readily available" the guns used in Newtown were, but we do
know that the mother lost her life to her son by being shot in the head. Once
again, he was mentally unstable. The mother had asked for help from numerous
state/county agencies. The background checks already in place had stopped him
from purchasing his own guns. Don't confuse thugs and drug dealers with
law-abiding citizens who commit the majority of gun violence.
In his speech the other night Barack sited the number of deaths from gun shots
since Sandy Hook. What he failed to note was that zero of those deaths would
have been avoided by limiting the size of gun magazines.
I understand the fascination with firearms. I was 13 when my dad bought me a .22
rifle. I was as excited as a boy can be to own my first gun. Dad kept the ammo
under lock and key along with ammo for his own hunting rifle and shotgun. We
previously had two gun deaths in the family, one an accidental shooting, the
other a suicide. That helps keep me from being so cavalier about guns the way
this article describes what’s going on in Vegas.
Guns are like parachutes. If you ever really need one, and don't have one,
you probably will never need one again.
Well Obama10, whether the guns were stolen are not, they were readily available
to the shooter in Newtown. Was her gun safe open or as a responsible gun owner
did she not even have a gun safe?Do you have a gun safe? Are your weapons
available to a thief or to a young child?Making a gun owner responsible
for the acts committed by their guns be be a huge deterrent.Make them
readily available to a thief or selling them without a background check and you
get charged too. Like that better?If you want to experience the firing of
a military weapon, join the military..... I did and I never want to hold or own
another weapon in my life. I've had my fair share thank you very much.
I think it sounds like fun and have wanted to go to Front Sight for many years.
I hope to visit someday and shoot an automatic weapon. To think this has any
bearing on "gun violence" is ludicrous. The majority of gun violence
today comes from gangs and drug dealers, not law abiding citizens. The
politically incorrect answer is to get kids back in stable, two parent homes
(mom and dad), in stable schools where standards are expected, and gun violence
will drop. How many mass shootings were there before "baby daddy" and
"baby momma" and the "thug" lifestyle was popularized by modern
culture? Remember the shooter in Newtown STOLE his mom's guns. No
background check or "common-sense gun legislation" would have stopped
that horrible day.
"....this is just one more reason to put Vegas on my do not visit
list."____________________Gun shows do pump money into the
local economy. Gun control or gun sales is a no brainer choise for me with
public safety as the bigger concern. But corporate profits still have the clout.
Las Vegas is simply providing a supply for a demand that obviously exists. If
there wasn't a demand for this type of entertainment, then people
wouldn't participate and those entertainment suppliers would soon move on
to something different. But the demand is obviously there, and apparently
thriving, so these venues will continue to meet those demands. Whether
people agree with it or not doesn't matter so much. It's perfectly
legal and hasn't harmed anyone... at least so far. And as long as
that's the case, then go for it... if that's your thing.
Gambling and prostitution is legal as well Chris B .....so go for it I guess.Personally, this is just one more reason to put Vegas on my do not visit
Sounds like a fun time. It's legal, go for it.
Sounds like Alice in Wonderland. Only the yet to be morning after can break the
Egad......what's next in Sin City. They certainly know how to aggravate
liberals with their with their "in your face" tactics. On the other
hand, serious defense training also exists at Front Sight, some of the best
available in the nation out near Pahrump where gun safety is seriously taught to
amatuers as well as professional law enforcement. With all this, Harry Reid is
caught on the horns of a dilemna.
Stupid, stupid and just plain STUPID.
Vegas does it yet again. Too bad what happens there doesn't really stay
