    All you had to do was stop telling your neighbors you had them.

    I think it's hilarious that some of the people who shriek the loudest against the idea of forcing people to take a gun safety class before buying a gun (ZOMG COMMON SENSE WOULD BE FASCIST LOL) are the same people who actually want to force EVERYONE to take a gun safety class, even if they have no guns in their house and have no desire to own a gun.

    I can't. This is important.

    This has already been discussed in detail; did you read the thread?

    Some of us have reservations about allowing the gov't to impose a standard on a right, which they are then free to raise until no one can pass it. This has been/is done in states with "discretionary" carry permit laws, to effectively ban carry except for the politically connected.

    I came out against mandatory gun classes when all was said and done; I don't think the gov't would do it right and I think too many people would be opposed.

    Only the parts that interested me. I tend to ignore the turds from Scarecrow as much as I can.

    Well then the problem lies with those laws that constitute an unreasonable standard; not the reasonable standard from whence they came. Anyone who supports mandatory classes obviously thinks that gun safety is a worthwhile subject for people to know, and has no problem imposing that view on them. The only real difference between them and me is that they want to bray about guns to people who don't care, instead of people who do.

    Then we are in agreement.
