A Sudden Attack of Common Sense

The U. S. House of Reprsentatives voted yesterday to overturn a requirement forcing manufacturers of handguns to include a trigger lock with each weapon.

An obvious attack of common sense on the part of the U.S. House of Representatives. A trigger lock prevents the weapon from being accessed during the time of an emergency which is exactly when it will be needed.

Training your children to be aware of the danger of mishandling a weapon are far more effective than a simple lock would ever be at safeguarding lives.

I have purchased several firearms that came with trigger locks.

The first thing I did was throw them away.
