Thank god, not one of those morons are the sharpest tools in the shed.

Get a clue about a firearm and the safety mechanisms incorporated into them, than I may appreciate your comment a little more
A little harsh but I agree with the thought. I always feel I am arguing with an ignorant person especially if they have no exposure to firearms due to the draconian rules in the country (England, Australia just to single out a couple)

What should we do, ban forks and remove crash axes from aircraft?
Actually that was almost a reality after 9/11. That FedEx guy that went nuts years back was used to back that argument

A parked car is not a danger to anyone around it
No I have never heard of a parking brake slipping and the car rolling into something or someone...
|Quoting atct (Reply 20):|
I carry a loaded gun on airplanes all the time...albeit it's Alaska and it's usually in a Cub or Beaver. What's the big deal?
Actually it was state law for a long time. It was changed after the Canadians (Cretian or however he spelled it) unfortunately set their firearm restrictions. It was felt that pilots where being put in legal issues on trans-border flights. We never should have changed the law.

Do you know how to stop home intruders? Pepper spray (I have it clipped to my wall by the door).
You know how you beat pepper spray, wear goggles and attack from upwind.

Were the Sept 11 hijackers trying to smuggle box cutters or did they forget they had them?
Its a fair point to bring up that no banned items where ever attributed to the 9/11 hijackers.

Quoting fr8mech (Reply 50):It's a ridiculous proposition that turbulence would cause a firearm to discharge.
A badly packed fire arm could be discharged during turbulence. A properly packed fire arm will not be.
Agreed, but it is still a remote chance. You have to remember that firearms where originally designed as weapons of war and stand up to the rough handling of a combat environment and not discharge. I'm pretty sure none of us can say that a ladies handbag is a rougher environment than Khe-Shan, Bastone, Stalingrad, Okinawa....ad nausum
OBAMA-WORST PRESIDENT EVER....Even SKOORB would be better.
