What if a family member has to use the firearm in an emergency? What about:

Nope, this sounds like just another gun control ploy. These clowns will then try to pass a law that you can’t keep your current gun because it’s dumb.

Markey, who detailed the bill Wednesday, also called on President Obama to include $10 million in his budget proposal for gun violence research.

Anti-gun Markey should be required to go pound sand and find another way to pay for any research and not off the backs of tax payers.

Reason your next door neighbor's kid is dead today...

Your son found the gun you left "hidden" in the night table and he pointed it at his best friend. He knew he wasn't supposed to touch but he's a kid and curious.

The gun when off and the shot caught the boy in the neck and and your boy screamed and your wife ran into the room but the boy dies before she can even dial 911.

And you come home as they carry out the body and you go next door and you tell his dad you needed the gun for protection from burglars and didn't want to lock it because you might have needed right away, that the twenty seconds could have been a life or death situation.

And it turns out you were right.

Sadly: you weren't at all sorry. It never even came out of your mouth.

There are a lot of deadly items to be found in homes to injure children.
http://www.ext.colostate.edu/pubs/columncc/cc...
Dangerous household items.
Plastic wrapping.
Electrical shocks.
Cord or string.
Away from open windows.
Toys.
http://health.howstuffworks.com/pregnancy-and...
However, home injuries are a leading source of accidental death for children. Almost 21 million medical visits and 20,000 deaths each year are the result of accidents in the home.
Drowning in the bath.
Chemicals.
It's estimated that 42 percent of all U.S. homes have a firearm, Talking with children about the dangers of guns is extremely important, especially if your child comes into contact with a gun in someone else's home.
Suffocation is a leading cause of unintentional injury-related death, and 60 percent of these cases occur in a baby's sleeping environment.
Choking hazard.
Fires.
Accidental falls are one of the most common types of injuries to children.
Pets.

Firearms are deadly.

More deadly when not locked up.

Today-

A 3-year-old boy in Eureka has died after being shot by his 8-year-old cousin Monday, the Navarro County Sheriff's Department confirms.

According to Sheriff Elmer Tanner, the child was accidentally shot and killed while inside a shed or portable building adjacent to the family home.

Somehow, the victim's 8-year-old cousin gained access to a 20-gauge shotgun and shot the boy once in the head, Tanner said.

Tanner said two adults were home at the time, though neither were directly watching the children at the time of the shooting. Tanner added that the adults belived the gun had been secured in a location that was inaccessible to children.

The town of Eureka is located along U.S. Highway 287 between Corsicana and the Richland Chambers Reservoir.

Tanner said the investigation into the shooting is ongoing and that officials have not determined if any charges will be filed.

‘Thug’ in Quinn anti-violence program accused in teen’s murder

SPRINGFIELD (Sun-Times)— Both Jermalle Brown and Douglas Bufford were gang members hired to play a small role in helping combat violence on the South Side through a program hatched by Gov. Pat Quinn’s administration.

Paid $8.50 an hour with taxpayer funds to hand out anti-violence pamphlets in their South Shore neighborhood, the two low-income teens were part-time foot soldiers in the governor’s $54.5 million Neighborhood Recovery Initiative, a program he once described as “a comprehensive and concerted effort to keep our young people safe, off the streets and in school.”

Quinn launched that program a month before his 2010 election as an answer to gun carnage in the city — even though murders that year, Chicago Police would later disclose, dipped to a nearly 50-year low.

If the firearm manufactures want to market such technology they can and should.

The reliability will be the factor if the public wants to purchase the technology.

Note that military and police do not use this technology. With the R&D capabilities the military has access to, and the fact that if this was reliable, everyone of our soldiers would have this technology. It would deny the enemy use of any captured weapons.

I wouldn't use it. I prefer the tried and true method of securing my firearms and other methods that insure the safety of my property.

Smart police control over their guns would save many dogs lives, teens with WII remotes and 80yr olds with a canes lives too. You think they're going to work on that ? As with anything else I am sure the police, DHS etc. millions of guns would be exempt if something like this is enacted.

Well YOU certainly have the right to not have a gun in your house. I have the right to have one. Hundreds of millions of firearm in millions of homes and accidental shootings will occur because of owner carelessness. Millions of millions cars on the roads, thousands of thousands deaths, a lot due to carelessness. Apply the same logic to car ownership. Car stays locked if drivers mental state indicates bad mood to mitigate road rage, no hot shot teens allowed, any substance abuse of any kind ever locks car. How many people you think would go for it to save untold tens of thousands of lives.
sample
.
In 2008 there were 680 accidental shooting deaths in the United States, with more than 15,500 shooting injuries. Most disturbing, perhaps, is the number of children involved in accidental shootings. Every day approximately five children are injured or killed on a nationwide basis as a result of handguns. The primary cause of youth-involved shooting rests with the fact that children find loaded handguns in the home
.
and
.
In 2008, there were a total of over 5.8 million car crashes; 1,630,000 accidents that caused injury; 4,146,000 only caused property damage and 34,017 accidents were fatal.
.
See how hysterical stats can skew events. So lets control guns for EVERY careful gunowner for the few hundred that are idiots.

Simple really Stu.
If you truly wish to change the world, how about actually embracing what Jesus said and sow your seed of salvation and move along, then let the spirit heal that person from within?
You propose to externally force others to do something instead of allowing them to willingly make that choice for themselves. You have no moral authority nor directive from Jesus to do so.

If I allow you to disarm the populace by force (physical or legal), Millions of we the people will meet God before we prefer.
God does not advocate becoming victims of evil. He charges us with resisting that evil and helping others do the same. God helps those who help themselves Stu.

ANOTHER case of an UNEDUCATED child by irresponsible parents.

ANOTHER case of an irresponsible fidiot lie-beral blaming the object.

Sometimes its hard to tell which is the worse tragedy.

I'm inclinded to choose the former but history is on the side of the latter. Everyone dies,method/age is inconsequetial. But lie-beral fidiocy seems to be eternal.
