And Cars Should Come With Free Clubs

Thursday, July 28, 2005

While working on a controversial bill designed to protect gun manufacturers from frivolous lawsuits, the Senate passed an amendment 70-30 that would require child safety locks to be sold with all handguns.

The truth is most reputable gun manufactures already provide consumers with free gun locks just like the one pictured that came with my Glock 27. Notice how it's still in its original plastic package. And it won't be coming out anytime soon because if a situation were to ever arise I'd like to be able to utilize those hollow points in a timely manner.

Moreover you're not guaranteeing a house will be any safer with an extra lock lying around. You can force a child to buy a book but that doesn't mean he's going to read it.
