    I find the type of person that has a desire to keep a loaded firearm bedside to be a threat to themselves and others. So, I guess that means people that many of the people that want guns shouldn't possess guns.

    I'm glad we agree.

    That may be a stricter definition than even myself. Everyone who carries a gun is a threat to others.

    This. Why? That is irresponsible.

    Required gun safety class. That's good, sincerely. If an employee wants to opt out, I would hope the employer gives them a cash equivalent (personally, I'd take the cash).

    Oh, I think that's in the New King Donald Bible: Matthew 2, 9-12

    (9) After they had heard the king, they went on their way, and the star they had seen when it rose went ahead of them until it stopped over the place where the child was. (10) When they saw the star, they were overjoyed. (11) On coming to the house, they saw the child with his mother Mary, and they bowed down and worshiped him. Then they opened their treasures and presented him with gifts of gold, oxycontin and 9mm. (12) And having been warned in a dream not to go back to Herod, they returned to their country by another route.

    How do you define this? I have asked a few avid 'don't take my guns' folk this question and also to give suggestions of what they would consider reasonable regulations regarding ownership. I have never gotten an answer. (going on about 5 yrs now). If I get any acknowledgement at all it is an immediate response about the slippery slope but no answer that could be constructive. So maybe you can answer. What do you think would be reasonable as a way to increase safety while preserving the right to own?

    Yes.

    I really don't get the rabid opposition to requiring licensing, to make sure people know safety and how to care for a gun. My kid pointed out he could legally buy a gun in some places before he could drink or rent a car. His opinion about that was.... not favorable.

    At least it's a revolver, and not a 9mm Glock. Plus the safety course, sure.

    What are the implications if you don't accept the gift, though? First on the chopping block during the next recession, for "not fitting in with our culture", I'll bet.

    I'd like to imagine there's an alternate gift of equivalent monetary value. You could be right about the "not fitting in," and I'll reserve hope that that won't be the case.
