    Agreed. Why add another step to an already stressful situation. Every weapon within my reach is loaded, chambered, with no safeties, including the shotguns.
    You live in Houston? I would recommend claymores deployed strategically around the property. The firearm I keep on my person is sufficient for now. If society begins to unravel, or I find myself living in Detroit, or Houston (not very damn likely) things will change accordingly.

    See, that's just wrong.

    Y'all keep calling them bad guys but @RJAMES is correct. You should have to work hard at stopping them and shooting them is not right. Besides, gun are evil but it's one of the tools of their trade. They are just trying to make a living and have a right to take you out if you infringe on their right to have the job they choose.

    Let's see...

    We keep a .357 revolver in plain sight on the dining room table at all times, loaded with .38 snakeshot. The last time we used it was about a month ago but it is not uncommon to need it (7 times in the last year).

    I keep a .45 ACP in my nightstand table (loaded and chambered) and Mrs Inor keeps a 9mm in her nightstand table (loaded and chambered) ALWAYS.

    We keep several other rifles and shotguns stored around the house (all loaded and chambered).

    We live in the middle of nowhere and never know when the need for a firearm will come up. When it does, we NEED the firearm NOW, not 3 minutes from now. The latest was the day before yesterday when a bobcat was stalking our dogs. If we had kept all of our guns safely locked away (unloaded) in a safe, today I would be the proud owner of a dead dog instead of the owner of a bobcat pelt that is worth a few bucks.

    IF YOUR KIDS ARE TOO DAMN STUPID TO BE TRUSTED AROUND LOADED FIREARMS, PUT THEM UP FOR ADOPTION!!! And then suck-start a shotgun for being a lousy parent.

    Sorry, but that is just plain stupid.
    Kids are wild cards and it is pompous, arrogant and egotistical to say such crap.
    Yes. I got away with my tactic. My son didn't dare think about touching my 586. Wonderful, huh? What if he had one of those "kid" moments? There's a reason why kids aren't tried as adults.

    Two things we are all for; we are all for no negligence and we are all for protecting kids.

    Me? I'm not into those fingerprint box things. I'm into proper training of children, putting up firearms when other children are in the house, and height. Why height? Even the best trained kid is a wild card. You might want to talk black/white on the internet but in your heart you know I am right.

    Yes. Lock up, register, remove guns for "the safety of the children".

    Not the video I was looking for. But it'll work in a pinch.

    Bet it doesn't.
    Screw videos. Tell me where I am wrong. If you can't explain responsibility, a stupid video won't cut it.

    So you won't take the word of someone who lived through it??
    Then there's no way anyone will convince you. The second amendment is written as it is for a reason.
    But when you're in your knees with your hands tied behind your back and a gun is out to your head. You're civil rights no longer mean anything.
    Nazis are not the only one who has said guns should be removed "for the children". Those words have been said by people in our own government. Be careful what you so easily dismiss.

    Here is the long version of here speech.

    Anything with a key, combination or fingerprint can become a huge obstacle when under extreme stress.
