I had no idea that I was a “member” of NCGV. I am on their mailing list. In the NRA, when my year ran out without me renewing my membership I ceased to be a member. I’ve since renewed, but for that time, I was not a member. I guess all you have to do to be a “member” of NCGV is to sign up for their free email alerts. For me, it only makes good sense to keep tabs on what our enemies are doing. Here’s their latest foolishness. (Via Email)
As a NCGV member, you know something can be done to prevent gun violence. That’s how we make a difference – refusing to believe that gun deaths are inevitable. Which is why, when current research found that safely storing firearms could prevent adolescent suicide, we responded swiftly.
We created Minutes Matter, a statewide program reaching families across the state with the information they need to protect their loved ones. Through Minutes Matter we can do something; we can save our state’s youth by preventing firearm suicide attempts.
What NCGV is pushing is a revamp of our “Child Access Prevention” law in North Carolina. Currently the law says that you can’t leave a gun where a child could get to it. For the gun grabbers, this isn’t enough. They want us to be required by law to lock all guns up.
I guess I am a cold hearted bastard. I think that if you can’t trust your kids with your gun, you are responsible to lock it up. If they use it, then it’s your problem, not mine. I grew up in a home with loaded, unlocked guns. We knew where they were in case we needed to shoot someone. And rest assured, if anyone needed shooting, we would have shot them. My (little) brother would have made short work of any intruder. I’d probably have been dumb enough to fight, but my brother would have gotten the guns and taken care of business.
I think that anyone who is so anti-gun that they need to stick themselves into the decisions of parents needs to get his nose punched. My parents made the conscious decision to leave the guns where we could get to them if we needed to. Assuming I had kids, I’d have to make a decision on that subject as well. NCGV wants to tell you that you are irresponsible if you make any decision other than the one they want you to make. I think that they are ideologues who would rather your children be murdered than have access to a gun that they could use to fight back.
