  •  Thanks for the kind words. I'm sorry you (10+ / 0-)

    are offended that I said guns are a menace, but I'm sure you'll agree that they are a mortal danger.

    Anyway, my brother could teach the gun safety classes, so I don't think that's really relevant. He's actually got a ton of special permits, etc. I can guarantee he will be more careful from now on. I'll stop thinking about it in a few days, but I guarantee he will not.

    Thanks again for your comment.

    •  Guns are indeed a menace, especially around people (6+ / 0-)

      that are untrained.  Many product we buy can be dangerous when mishandled, but firearms are in a class by themselves in terms of lethality.

      Then they came for me - and by that time there was nobody left to speak up.

      disagreed with on varying issues, thank you.  

      It wasn't the label "menace" but the part of "treating them as such" that got to me.

      Maybe it would help your niece, nephew and sister-in-law IF they too were trained as well as your brother is.

      My offer still stands really.  If they are going to be in a home with firearms, they really should know firearm safety as well.  The whole "two heads are better than one" idea.

      Talk soon..
