I firmly believe that curbing gun violence in the US begins with education and the enforcement of existing laws. That said... is there any compromise to be had on the gun owner side of the argument?
If you are a gun owner... what would you be willing to compromise to find middle ground on this debate?
I'm in favor of this law.
Mostly because gun safes are friggen expensive
and I'm fairly confident that the gubbamint will issue some nice tax credits if they pass this law to go towards the purchase of a safe.
I'm going to get one anyway (afterall, I really don't need my child shooting himself or my guns to get stolen), so if the brilliant folks in Washington could figure out a way to 'protect our citizens' while making this cost-effective for me, I'd greatly appreciate it.
