    My proposed new gun law

    I would like to suggest that congress pass a law giving tax credits for gun safe purchases from manufacturers in the US. This could add some jobs while also helping citizens to properly store their firearms. Seems like a win-win to me.

    I think there's a similar idea circulating in congress right now.... $1000.00 tax credit... if you turn in your gun to a local official "gun buy back program."
    Rats!
    It could be worse!
    I suppose

    That is where I got my idea. Mine would actually increase safety though.

    Yes it would, honestly... But here's the problem with yours.... you have to spend money to get your credit.. their way, you get paid for the gun, and get a tax credit!

    Sounds like a fair deal...$1000 for a $500 gun.. Turn it in, get my tax credit and go buy 2 more..

    Well, I guess Obama could provide free gun safes to every household in the US as part of a stimulus package.

    Draft up a well worded petition and post it on that whitehouse.gov site.

    Well one thing that might help is to remove 'handgun' and 'Automatic Rifle' from the english lexicon...replace it with
    "polymer alloy composite small projectile accelerator".......
    There are two types of people who carry concealed weapons...Responsible ones and Irresponsible ones...which are you...

    How about we just give everybody a gun, as long as they are not crazy! Survival of the fittest.

    Here's the only gun law we need:

    "A well-regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed."

    I got some old junkers that I could turn in for the credit! Then buy some more useable or suitable!

    Since when is locked in my house not considered secure? I think that's a slippery slope. If someone broke into my house and I get slapped with a negligence suit, I would flip the hell out. Where does it stop? If it's in a safe, and they bust open your safe, are you still negligent because you didn't have your safe in another safe? How many locks have to be in place between someone else and the gun before it's considered secured?

    I never said your house was not secure. I am also not suggesting any legal requirements to have a safe. I am only saying that if congress wants to do something that will encourage safety they should offer incentives for people to buy safes. All of the politicians fell like they need to do something. Well, this is something that would not infringe on the 2nd amendment and might actually do some good even if all it does if provide some jobs to safe companies.

    I will give it a shot. It might take a little while to remove all of the snark from my verbage though.
