Isn't it obviously negligent to leave a loaded gun where your young child can find it and use it?

Yes is it jafs. No excuse! Sad.

Yes. There really isn't an excuse for this sort of thing. I refuse to believe it's just the price of freedom.

Me too.

If the negligent people hurt themselves, it would be a bit more ok with me.  But when their negligence hurts others, especially children, it's very not ok.

well, the House would like to make it easier to carry concealed guns across statelines

I would guess the problem is carrying it through states in which it's not legal?

Otherwise, if you just have it in KS, and carry it into a neighboring state where it's legal, I'm not sure there's an issue, is there?

Gun proliferation mixed with stupid-people proliferation has put every person in this country in danger. 

That child could have killed someone else's child. That has also happened. A person might be playing in their yard and a bullet could come from a bedroom window, where a child has found mommy's loaded gun in the drawer. 

We have all read the stories. Every day a child finds a loaded gun in America. Many times it results in a death. 

And nobody gives a shirt.

Nobody in Kansas insists that there be training prior to buying a gun. How else will a stupid person learn if not from other, smarter people?

But the NRA doesnn't care. They say no to training. Stupid people let the NRA speak for them because they're too stupid to think for themselves.

yes, the bill would allow only legal states to participate - so no carrying from permitted state to a non-permitted state.

This country is bi-polar. Some states have legalized marijuana, but federa statutes declare marijauana illegal. Now they want federally legal concealed-carry between states that legally allow concealed carry.


RE: Isn't this negligence? - jafs3 - 12-08-2017

Then I'm not sure there's a real issue.

Why shouldn't somebody be able to carry their gun concealed in one state, then travel to another state where it's also legal (providing they don't travel through any states in which it's not legal)? And why would we need a federal law making that ok? It would be ok according to each state already, right?


RE: Isn't this negligence? - susnus - 12-08-2017

I can only think that it's about the crossing of state lines - what else is there?
