Cool!

But I don't understand how the uninformed person quoted at the end of the article could be so wrong. America wants more gun laws AND gun safety?

Doesn't she know a gun locked away by force of law, separated from a lawful citizen by mandate, is about as safe as runway behind you in an airplane?

No sir, if you have a pistol, you should have a good, safe holster. And if you have a good, safe holster that is where your gun is most responsibly kept.

Just say "no!" (and pew! pew!) to school shooters and deadly mayhem of all types.

And, of course, pray that it never happens again.

TexasCHLforum.com made it in Time!!! I for one am happy to see the Corporate Media mention our website.

Maybe the Corporate Media could also mention that the NRA sets the standard for firearms training with 125,000 instructors teaching over 1 million people on safe, ethical, responsible gun ownership every year and that the NRA has an extremely effective gun safety program for kids.

Nah, probably asking too much. When they're trying to manufacture consent, how could they give us equal treatment? :biggrinjester:

Congrats Charles! I will be praying for 15 million NRA members and millions more Americans being trained on safe, ethical, responsible gun ownership every year.

That uninformed person is actually the very informed Shannon Watts, founder of Moms Demand Action. She is as fiercely anti-2A as you can get, and she has a lot of push to her. Well, I say, "very informed", but to quote the great Ronaldus Magnus, "The trouble with our Liberal friends is not that they're ignorant; it's just that they know so much that isn't so."
Your number one option for personal security is a lifelong commitment to avoidance, deterrence, and de-escalation.
When those fail, aim for center mass.

Criminals aren't in the least affected by gun control laws. They have no qualms regarding gun control laws as it affects them not one wit as they completely ignore gun laws. A thousand new ones doesn't affect them whatsoever.

However, law abiding citizens are the only ones affected by control gun laws -rendering us, the law abiding to be meat for violent criminal wolves.

Gun control is like OSHA for criminals; it gives them a safer "work environment".

Of course they gave the anti-2A gun ban people the last word. The same type of people who want to ensure that criminals have a greater advantage over their intended victims who are disarmed and unable to fight back.
