    of all places. In the letters section of the Science Times there are several well reasoned letters commenting on an article last week about guns in the home. No surprises for the members here, the usual comments about not lumping criminal shootings with those of the law abiding and the importance of loaded guns for S/HD.
    Nice to see.

    As far as pure accidents go, for the age group 0-5
    5 gallon mop buckets kill 4 tines more kids than guns.
    For 6-14 year olds bicylces kill far more kids than
    gun accidents.

    In the home, a gun should be loaded and under direct
    control of a responsible adult' otherwise, it should be
    unloaded and under lock and key inaccessible to kids.

    Everyone, adult and kid, should be taught.
    o Always assume a gun is loaded.
    o Keep the muzzle pointed away from people or pets.
    o Finger off the trigger until the sights are on an intended target.
    o Clearly identify the target and the background.

    Registered voters may apply for a library card to check out books from a government library.

    Journalists and bloggers would be allowed to apply for a license before obtaining an internet connection.

    is NOT an exclusionary clause, but is an example of why
    That is one reason. but not the only reason. wgy the right of the people
    should not be infringed and does not exclude other reasons.

    Mr. Brown, that identifying information doesn't appear in the on-line version.

    Cheers.
