At first the title threw me for loop but reading it the document has some "pro gun control" stuff and some "anti gun control" stuff. But that title :rolleyes:

If by pro gun control you mean their statements where they say they support laws that are designed to keep guns out of the hands of criminals then I guess I am pro gun control. I support a lot of laws that target criminals. Its the ones that target everybody that I HATE.

I kinda wonder if when they talk about schools they are referring to highschools. Cause its about time we start letting adults in college carry at school.

It IS about time to stop making GunFree Zones. These places are a safe haven for criminals and mass murderers. As long as the students are of legal age and with no criminal record that would prevent them from otherwise carrying a weapon, let them carry. They have the right to defend themselves.

“SAAMI members cannot over-emphasize the importance
of secure storage of firearms and ammunition as the key
to preventing home accidents, especially among children.”

Nope. Education. Experience. If you hide your stuff away from the kids, they get curious. And hide what they know from you. If you show them and let them learn they don't touch without an adult, proper safety, etc, then you'll be much better off.

“SAAMI members support efforts to eliminate guns in
schools.”
Guns in schools are not bad. I like that they mention riflery teams, scouts etc, but to say no one else should have one is not good. Responsible adults should be free to carry, as per state law, same as they can elsewhere.


There's a few things I don;t care for, but not too bad overall.. Seems to concentrate on safety and all.

Looks like the sensationalized, out of context quote worked on some people.

If you are not willing to accept certain basic responsibilities and adhere to important rules of firearms ownership and storage, we urge that you not purchase a firearm.
Sounds fair enough.

Taking half-sentence quotes out of context is a logical fallacy that should be obvious to most people.

This is a teaser. It is intended to get you to read their material. It worked for most of us.

I actually don't disagree with anything I saw in that document during my quick read-over.
