    Actually, it's better to teach from about 7-10y.o. in my opinion, I've seen teens grasp safety immediately as well as respect, the worst safety offenders I've seen are actually adults, which blows my mind. Teaching safety is pretty easy, you first show the steps of safety such as releasing a magazine, then checking the chamber AND barrel(which many people neglect to do), then making sure that all of the mechanisms are functioning properly. Once a gun has been cleared, whether it's a revolver or semi-automatic, you then have the "student" duplicate the process. Respect depends on the person, if you can't respect human life and safety, you can't respect a gun in my opinion, for instance, the first time I fired my newest one I was shaking at the thought of ever having to use it on anyone, it's a big caliber handgun, that's respect, when someone says "cool, I feel sorry for the next guy who........." I cringe.


    Wayy ahead of you, i'm going down a range in a few weeks time to see it for myself. My brother is taking me =]
    Cool, be safe and have fun.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    That's not my argument. Maybe he would have died sooner, maybe he wouldn't have. It's hard to say. But gun restrictions and abolition is a form of treason, guns were to be guaranteed as a fully recognized right because we use them for self-defense. Not just for the off chance we happen into a situation in which we can help other individuals, but for the off chance that the government needs to be disposed of. Make no bones about it, a well regulated (i.e. armed and ready) militia is a necessity to a free state. Without it, the State will not remain free for long. Because of this the right of the People to keep and bear arms can not be infringed upon. It's that simple.

    Not everyone would use the guns responsibly, but that's the fault of the individual whom doesn't use a firearm responsibly. It's not my fault, nor should I be punished because of it. It won't be the wild west and I don't know what your last question means. Duals? Sure, why not.

    what gun laws do is disarm potential victims. That is why almost all criminals favor gun bans

    Give you a chance should the need arise.

    Too bad you're not Queen of America. What say should you have in what your neighbors have? Why should you get to set rules for their actions based on your own biases? If you don't want your neighbors having guns, move to the country where you ain't got no neighbors.

    Exactly, the only thing gun control does is infringe upon the rights of the people who choose to follow the law.

    The police are under no obligation to come to your aid. They can't be everywhere at once, and sometimes they are the problem.

    US is US. I don't give a **** if they legalize rocket launchers. There is a ocean seperating us, that is what prevents me from caring.

    Those exact laws were already in place in Germany and failed to avert this crisis. What sense does it make to enact such laws as a response to this incident?
