    I was first trained in handling firearms about age 6-7, and it continued from there. I think it can still be done, but very few are capable of such today.
    I am a firm RKBA type, and place some blame on the onslaught of the dread 'Hollywood' factor, but that's about all my commonality with the NRA whackjobs.

      I just think people ought to own up to what they do, deal with the consequences of their actions and the actions of others who claim to speak for them, and take responsibility - active responsibility through modeling good gun safety, advocating for gun safety, even teaching courses on gun safety, petitioning for better oversight of gun use, and to stop blaming the victims and making excuses for the criminals.

      All knowledge is worth having. Check out OctopodiCon to support steampunk learning and fun. Also, on DKos, check out the Itzl Alert Network.
