    Lightbulb I'm sitting at my son's baseball practice when...

    I'm sitting at my son's baseball practice when one of the parents starts talking about guns. They start by saying that with kids in the house - there is no such thing as a safe gun. "All it takes is once for a kid to watch the parent at a combination safe for the kid to memorize the numbers".
    Another said "I can't imagine why anyone would have a gun".
    Another chimes in "the only way to insure your house is safe- is to not own a gun"
    Another said "why would anyone want a gun - you're just asking for trouble"?

    All this as I sit with my G27 ready to defend these stupid sheep. Watch a loose dog run across the baseball field towards our kids or an intruder break into their house and we'll see who is safe.

    As HotGuns has said, "We're raising up a entire nation of cannon fodder." Some of them are adults already.

    Idiots, the whole lot of them (except you).

    My real estate closer had someone kick in her door one morning while her family was at home. I started talking to her about having some home protection. She said "I do, a 357" I said "Did you scare him with it?" she says "No, it was in the garage locked in a tool box on the other side of the house" I replied " What did you learn form that?". She was trying to lock the gun up to keep it away from her kids.

    I wonder if they plan on doing the old, "i have a gun" with the finger under your shirt deal. That might work right? LOL

    What ticks me off is how much they believe they are right. No amount of talking or persuasion can change some of there outlooks. They just dont get it. Its like "Dont confuse me with the facts! Ive already made up my mind." When i run into these types i just listen and dont say much to avoid getting worked up.

    Well, ya know. Base Ball practice are usually held on school lots, at least the ones where my son goes. And I can't carry a freaken gun because I could face prison that it is on school property.

    When I hear the talk in 'herds', I don't even try to engage...not worth my time. They will earn the fruits of their beliefs in due time.

    All it takes if for one kid to get his hands on a fire extinguisher and he could injure or kill himself. Remember hide your fire extinguishers far away from your children and never show them how to handle one. Every year thousands of fire extinguishers are fired improperly and could even lead to death.

    I say we ban these dangerous chemical tanks, if your house is on fire just call the fire department.

    Alright, I'm done for now.

    The best thing to do is keep your mouth shut.

    If the sheep find out you have a gun, not only will you be ostracized, but you're son will be too.

    This is so sad, and very frustrating.

    Silence is golden. I try to worry about that which I can control. Something like you describe is way beyond anything you can control or influence.
