Ask If There’s An Unlocked Gun

Before sending your dumb kid over to play:

Fair enough,  I like the safety angle this has.  If I didn’t know the Brady Campaign’s prior shenanigans I wouldn’t even give this commercial a side eye.

What do we do after we ask about the unlocked gun though?  Do we throw a fit and ban our kid from playing with the kid whose parents have this unlocked gun?  

50-BMG-Desert-Eagle-deagleI’m side-eyeing you Brady bunch… carry on though.

Thoughts?  Thoughts on the .50 BMG Deagle pictured? :P

I mean I support this kind of stuff, I’d totally not be happy sending my children over to the home of a fuckwit who doesn’t appreciate gun safety.

I dunno…

I had friends over when I was a kid and my dad’s guns were just in his closet…

Then again, I had been taught gun safety and didn’t mess with them nor tell other people where the guns were. I also didn’t regularly tell people where my mom’s jewelry was hidden.

I mean, how much do we need to pad the walls of life with pillows until children are considered, “safe”.

I am getting really tired of people internet shaming others for their choices as gun owners. The 2nd amendment is the right to keep and bare arms. “And you have to keep them locked up” is not in there anywhere.

Is it a good idea to lock up your guns? Generally, yes. However, everyone’s situation is different.

I see your point and agree with you to an extend, but going out and purchasing a gun doesn’t mean they’re in our ritualistic cult. Any fucking moron can go buy a gun, and some do! It’s pretty dangerous to have any children around unlocked guns, while my children would be taught safety I wouldn’t trust the others guys children would be, but to just keep firearms and unsupervised children separate.

I agree with you…

But if the people in question were that big of dipshits, would you want your kids over there playing anyway? I mean gun or no gun.

You right

A child is about 20 times more likely to die from accidental poisoning or in a car accident. I think people need to step back and analyze where they focus their concerns before putting all their eggs in one basket.

“Ok, I asked about gun storage, not my child is safe from all harm…”

This is textbook propaganda. First you dehumanize your opponent then you ostracize, and then you can make whatever criticism you like because you have made their behavior outlandish and unreasonable.

Passing gun control laws is currently difficult, but if they can stigmatize an entire generation of owners, it will make it easier in the future. The Brady campaign has been at this since the 80s and its working, listening to sound bites of people who know zero about firearms except that “gun show loophole, school shooting, and sensible laws are needed”

The responsible thing to do is call out campaigns like this for having nothing to do with safety only politics, and counter with legitimate, free, education classes for children on firearms safety.

Considering the source, it’s like having the fox guard the hen house.

“No ma’am. All of my guns are locked… and loaded.”

I run a sideline business repairing playgrounds to code. Believe it or not, playground equipment kills and seriously injures more kids than guns.

Try getting money out of a church, school, or business for playground repair.
