Coalition wants safe gun storage ordinance in Lincoln
« on: September 16, 2018, 09:55:52 AM »
Here is the google cached version of the Lincoln Urinal Star article, because the Urinal is almost entirely behind a paywall now, because they’re bleeding money, because they are a paper by nut job hippies, for nut job hippies.

But I digress.

Safe storage is a good thing of course, but the problem is rarely just access. It’s access combined with liberals trying (and failing) to parent. If everyone followed the tenants set forth in Ayoob’s parenting primer, “Gun-Proof Your Children,” 99.9% of accidental shootings etc would not occur.

I remember Ashford submitted a bill requiring this in the state legislure..... Not a single proponent. It was in response to an OPD cops kid or something.

Just another way to restrict your right to self defense. Remember, they know no bounds on restrictions and want to eliminate personal responsibility.

Absolutely, take the mystery away.

Sheesh, even with the archived version, I still had to click the "text only" version to read it.  It kept detecting Adblock Plus and was kicking me off the article.  In any event, I'm going to make it a point to get off work early so I can be at that council meeting.

She also has been contacted by people caring for aging parents with guns in the home, she said.   The parent might have no business owning a firearm, but unless the person is declared mentally incompetent, there's no way to keep them away from firearms.

"might have no business owning a firearm"?    Say's who, and with what authority that would override the 2nd Amendment?

"But the city hasn't asked gun owners to do their part by keeping guns out of the hands of people who shouldn’t have them,” she said.

And why should they?  There are enough laws on the books that infringe the 2nd Amendment.  And, why do all the laws punish the lawful gun owners?  Because that's the purpose of these types of proposals.  Every infringement is always called "reasonable".

 "Good intentions will always be pleaded for every assumption of authority. It is hardly too strong to say that the Constitution was made to guard the people against the dangers of good intentions. There are men in all ages who mean to govern well, but they mean to govern. They promise to be good masters, but they mean to be masters."

I'm definitely getting off work early, so I can make it there and ensure my voice is heard.  I've already made arrangements with my boss.

Didn't the Heller decision strike down storage requirements?  The city may be setting themselves up for a big lawsuit.

To be fair, this is just a group speaking at the council to propose a measure, it's not a measure being voted on by the council.

A coalition of Lincoln residents who believe the city should require gun owners to responsibly store their guns in their homes will bring their case to the Lincoln City Council later this month.

The idiots actually believe that being forced to store your guns in a safe, means it won't impact your safety.

Quote
There's no evidence to indicate safe-storage laws impact a gun owner's ability to use their gun at home, {Amanda Gailey, president of Nebraskans Against Gun Violence} said.

Apparently, there's several examples of so-called "safe storage" laws according to the Urinal Star article.

Quote
Massachusetts is the only state that mandates all guns be locked up. Other states require a firearm be locked up if its owner lives with someone not allowed to possess a gun, and some states have negligent storage laws, which make parents criminally liable for crimes committed with firearms by their children.

This summer, Seattle passed a safe-storage ordinance that requires guns be kept in a locked container. The National Rifle Association has filed a lawsuit to block the ordinance.

KLIN radio’s Coby Mach just posted on Facebook, “Testifiers wanting a gun safe storage law have overwhelmed those opposed. So far only 2 who oppose. Planned parenthood supports the law -says guns are a reproductive health issue.

Initially that was true, but more and more got up afterwards to stand for our rights.  There were at least 10 people that I counted (including myself), and some more who were in line when I finally left the chambers.

Planned parenthood supports the law -says guns are a reproductive health issue.[/b]”

Yeah, I was ~3 people behind her, and nearly burst out laughing when I heard her say that.  It took all my restraint to avoid making a scene by busting a gut laughing.

Agreed, good interview.
