Keeping one's firearms locked seems reasonable to prevent children from obtaining them. The section regarding notification of the appropriate school is bizarre. Schools should not be in the position of monitoring which parent(s) have weapons in their home.
JMD,I totally agree with you on this Bill.
Oregon is introducing a bill that the only way to obtain cigarettes is by prescription. Huh? Whether you smoke or don't where does this end? Will one need a prescription to buy soda, chips or pizza? Many control and intrusion issues involved.
This is getting totally crazy!
My thought is that I'll be paying a $100 fine IF they find out.
K,Everyone will be paying this fine if this law is approved throughout the U.S. Right now it's a proposal in Missouri.
I am not happy with this. I won't begin a rant but there are worse laws coming, I believe.
Gail,You know there will be. Hopefully, the laws won't pass.
BS BS BS BS BS!!! So if a parent chooses to use the right to own a gun you need to notify the school?!?!?! BAH they should assume all homes bare arms!!! It's our right and I don't need to tell another form of big brother
Feeling that slippery slope get slicker and steeper every day
Katidids,No one needs to tell big brother what they do or don't have. I'm wearing my boots because the $hit is getting deep.
And it totally smells!!!
Hitler comes to mind. Turn in any known jews or people hiding known jews or we will punish you.I'm all for keeping guns out of the hands of kids, but all these written announcements sounds more like we're living in an internment camp.
Unbelievable. Thanks for the info Sandy.
This is only the tip of the iceberg...It's only going to get worse...Nothing much suprises me anymore out of our 'officials'...lol
There will come a time (and soon) .. that our inept gov. will push the sleeping giant a bit too far. Time to wake up.
You'ns might live in the same country, but it is an entirely different world. When I took the firearms safety course to get my Pennsylvania hunting license when I was around 30, virtually all the other students were less than half my age. Every one seems to agree, oh yes, keeps the guns out of the hands of kids. Maybe it's different now, but around here people learned how to safely handle a gun before they learned how to drive, and to me that just makes more sense. Do it while they still respect authority and before the hormones of puberty kick in. But maybe that only works in a culture where hunting still is valued.
