- We have locks on my husband's guns. I got the police department to do it for my husband thought it really didn't matter if they were on his guns. We have them secure and in places the kids cannot get to.
My kids think children's toys and games are more interesting than guns. So I am not worried about our home.Jan 16, 2013
- Please be careful of going off the deep end and use common sense. I left a link of a very rational perspective on these events. Penn Jilette also had a thoughtful take on it. Little research goes a long way.
In moments of seeming social collapse, what gives you hope?
“We are not in social collapse - this is an illusion created by excessive media coverage of the most dramatic violent events. Rape, once considered acceptable in war and courtship, is now unacceptable. In most parts of the world, it's declined. Rampage killings are extraordinarily rare. In the US, though 27 people were killed in Newtown, 40 people are killed everyday - but the media doesn't cover those killings. And in many countries, homicide rates have come way down over recent years.” -Steven Pinker

- I had a thought about how to enact really effective gun control without infringing on anyone's second amendment rights. Require that all legally registered guns must be painted pink. Think it would work?Jan 19, 2013
- Nope. That would be funny on the reactions though.
Also some may be pissed off calling the guns sexist. lolJan 20, 2013
