    You know they’re 100% full of shit when they ignore the fact that autism is projected to be 50% within a decade or 2 at current rates. All about the children my ass. Using children to condition people into accepting giving up their rights is an old tactic.

    Lib fvcktard's definition of compromise: 'you give, we take', same as taxes and freedoms. Or more specifically, we want to take it all, we'll 'compromise' by only taking some. AKA, just the tip.

    Probably from Chicago and those other democratically run cities that have become crime infested areas after decades of leftist policies.
    I do know that before and probably this time too, that they count people into their late teens or even early 20's as children.

    I'm pretty sure John Lott did a study on safe storage laws and his conclusion was that they did cost lives. Here is an instance where the law definitely did. The Merced Pitchfork Murders - LewRockwell LewRockwell.com

    At that point you will have been flagged as a gun owner who threatened a family member and have the ERPO enacted against you per MA take everything to the limit (and over) laws.

    We should run some ads for NES... "Don't lock your gun; SCOTUS says you don't have to! DC vs Heller"

    My guess is several hundred thousand Bloomberg Bucks worth of focus groups. They will have looked at every possible term associated with firearms they could dredge up, looking for a new hook. "Family fire" very obviously came from "friendly fire."

    I can see it now, friendly fire, friendly fire, what can we do with that?

    I agree, "family fire" is a loser. To people who haven't served, "fire" is the thing in the fireplace, that's all.

    Exactly, but they willfully ignore all of the crimes that are STOPPED by firearms each year and only look at one side of the argument. Typical leftist tactic.

    Lott is the only one that brings this up.

    "Common ground" would be bundling shall issue in prohibitive jurisdictions in return for something they want.

    Am I the only one who reads this quote as "We need to find a way to educate people about guns that doesn't show them how full of shit we are and push them to the pro-2A side"?

    Their definition of compromise is they demand you give them $100. You refuse and they say to give them $50 and then complain that you're unwilling to compromise with them because you're refusing to give while getting nothing in return.

    There is no fvcking "common ground" here, either you respect my constitutionally protected rights or you will die violently in your attempt to take them away from me. END OF STORY.

    I will give up my guns when every anti gun fool ceases to steal the oxygen from this earth and not a minute sooner.

    There are many quick-opening small arms lockers out there. Wife and I purchased two of them. They fit between the interior wall studs (one in master bedroom closet and one in utility closet). They open with a 4 digit code and we programmed both with the same code. Each holds a rifle and a 12 gauge pump shotgun. The shotguns are loaded with OO buckshot and rifled slugs. Gives us quick access but at the same time protects our two little girls. This is the only compromise, if you want to call it that, we will accept. An empty gun with ammunition locked in a separate.location is worthless. A pick handle or a kitchen knife would be better.
