Two of the most basic rules of gun safety:
1) The gun is always loaded
2) Never point a gun at anything you're not willing to destroy
Gun safety seems to escape the ignorant comments you are trying to address.
As well as, the other post above yours, when did NYCity start seizing guns?
I cannot begin to tell you how many people have moved to coastal Carolina/Florida (any place but NYCity) escaping the taxes and progressive ways of Bloomberg.
Yet the progressive, failing ways continue on, bankrupt city after the next. As well as, the utter failure of nationalized health care in Canada and other places, it all seem to bypass progressives. It's as if they like and want failure and catastrophe.
