"Lisa Bond knows it can be awkward to ask new acquaintances about guns. "It's difficult to say, 'Hi. I'm Nicole's mom. Do you have a gun?'" said Bond, president of the Washington State PTA and mother of a 15-year-old son and 12-year-old daughter. "But it's something we have to talk about."

"Bond says it's important for parents to get to know the families whose homes their children are visiting and to ask whether there are guns in those homes."

screw you lady. I dont have to say nothing about what I have or not. If somebody asks if I have a gun I'll just drop my shorts and point to my package. MYOB!

To hell with you lady. Do we need to invade your space by asking if you are a pedophile, do you keep drugs and porno around, are the household chemicals and medicine securly locked up? Keep your little ugly mostly water meat sacks at home and stay out of peoples lives.

My wife and I have a big yard and three dogs that attract kids like a magnet. It's not uncommon to find a gaggle of kids in the kitchen with the Mrs. These kids all have one thing in common; I've introduced myself to their parents. It's no secret that I have firearms, but they're secured or on my person when kids are there. Often one will ask me to take them shooting, which I'll gladly do if one of the parents are there as well. Parents in my neighborhood appreciate my uncompromising stand on gun safety. They also appreciate the fact that anyone in my house has an armed bodyguard... me.

If a soccermom asks me "do you own a gun," I will immediately respond with a question of my own: "Do you own a vibrator?"

If she feels entitled to ask me a personal question, I see no reason not to let her know how it feels to have one asked of her.

If you are REALLY interested in 'safety' as you claim, then teach kids all about firearms, and perform the 45ACP vs. The Cantaloupe demo. Never had a problem with my kids and guns after the 54Cal Hawken Rifle lead ball vs 1-gallon water jug test, either.

The Justice Department...stated that the Second Amendment grants individuals the right to bear arms beyond the purpose of state militias.

Such moves ...are "a huge disappointment," said Renee Handler Klein, a spokeswoman with the local chapter of the Million Mom March. "It shows what we're all scared of."

"Scared" of WHAT EXACTLY? Freedom? Adherence to ideals such as Constitutional Law (vs psychopathic activism)? "Scared" of a little bit of PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY are you?

These "million"-moron-munchkins are sick, stupid, hopolophobic, misinformed and dangerous.

Hey! Didn't Bill Clinton and his soccer mom supporters tell us it's OK to lie when asked a personal question?

Comment by: (5/14/2002)
It's obvious to me that the thing that scares them the most is - THE TRUTH!!! They can't stand to admit that they are raising a bunch of panty waste kids that can't think for themselves( oops- just like their parents). If this country collapses, which bunch of people do you think will survive???

Are these people afraid of EVERYTHING ??????????? My G&dietyD - what horrible
lives they must lead.
It's no one else's business what I have in my home. If you're uncomfortable with
that, fine, your child does not visit.
My children (16 and 14) would NEVER bother a firearm found in someone else's
house. They both have been 'taught' and I would (and have) bet their lives on
what I have taught them.
If one of their friends is in my home, all firearms, save one, are quite safely secured.

Being a parent, my response is this: Absolutely, what kind do you have? I personally believe that it's OK for them to ask, and I happily engage them in a REASONABLE discussion. I offer to have them over so they and their kids can become educated, and take them to the range. I'd rather bring others into the loop on all the cool things about guns then make an enemy. One thing that the parents can count on, is that their kids are safer with me than if they were at the park with them. Then again if you're in a real pissy mood....go with the vibrator question.... ;-) +ProGunCali

Well Chuck the Scmuck, there's more gun violence in NYC then there ever was in Tombstone. Also, the gunfight at the O.K. corral was in part a result of the Earps enforcing brother Vergils' gun control ordinance.

I don't waste my time trying to talk to gun-control ninnies anymore. It doesn't do any good. Their arguments are based on raw emotion, and all facts and logic go out the window.

I truely hate the whole stinking lot of them.

The only way they'll come around if their homes get invaded or they get raped and beaten......

To prohibit a citizen from wearing or carrying a war arm . . . is an unwarranted restriction upon the constitutional right to keep and bear arms. If cowardly and dishonorable men sometimes shoot unarmed men with army pistols or guns, the evil must be prevented by the penitentiary and gallows, and not by a general deprivation of constitutional privilege. [Wilson v. State, 33 Ark. 557, at 560, 34 Am. Rep. 52, at 54 (1878)]
