    IN THE NEWS...

    Lately, it seems as if the nightly news has been
    littered with tragedy after gun related
    tragedy.

    Firemen getting shot on the job, a first grader murdered
    by a first grader in Michigan, Columbine just a year
    behind us.

    I watched Dateline NBC do a piece on
    gun safety the other night and gun locks were
    specifically mentioned. Potential legislation mandating smart
    guns and gun locks also was
    covered.

    Saf-T-Hammer (otcbb: SAFHE) makes a gun lock that prevents
    unauthorized use of a firearm without adding some large,
    cumbersome device to the gun.

    Is this the compromise
    needed? No batteries and cost effective, it could be an
    interesting part of gun safety discussions.

    The
    saf-t-Hammer and Saf-t-trigger can be seen in explicit detail
    at www.saf-t-hammer.com

    • >>So then what would be the problem with
      requiring child safety locks on hand guns?
      <<

      The problem *IS*. . we have 20,000+, mostly ignored
      gun laws ALEADY! Most of them have NOT been enforced
      in the last 8 years, by this administration! Don�t
      you wonder why? Enforce the damn laws on the books
      -and see it THAT makes any difference.

      If an
      INDIVIDUAL wants -or thinks safety locks is a good idea in
      his situation, let HIM decide! We are witnessing a
      constant erosion of our God-given, Constitutionally
      guaranteed RIGHTS. Many people keep guns for personal
      protection. If a protective weapon is locked at the very time
      it is needed, why bother having it around?

      If
      you think the Police will be there in your time of
      need,you are sadly deluded.

    • Why are you discussing gun locks on the FDX
      board?
      All you have to know about Lock and Saftyhammer

      is that they are not real compainies. They are
      trading shells set up to take peoples money by selling
      stock. They do not have a product or any sales. Most of
      the gun locks sold are made by Master. UGII

    • >>It is not the ownership, but the use of the item that ought to be controlled by law.<<

      So then what would be the problem with requiring child safety locks on hand guns?

    • > Potential legislation mandating smart guns
      and gun locks also was covered.

      Do everyone a
      favor:

      1. Study the 2nd Amendment

      2. Join the
      NRA

      There is/will be only a minuscule market for such
      product. You are NOT going to get law abiding citizens to
      turn in their guns for new, high tech stuff. You are
      not going to get us to register our guns. You are not
      going to get us to turn in our guns. It has been done
      in other countries, with pitiful results.


      The California Legislature recently outlawed certain
      gun types. The Attorney General instituted a �Buy
      Back� program, to which an infinitesimally small number
      of citizens responded. What the lawmakers have done
      is create another several million criminals, who
      refuse to turn in their guns. This is all Liberal
      gobbdegook! Any freedom-loving American is going to ignore
      all of this, out of principle. And I certainly would
      not invest in this stuff. . out of principle.
