For the children

Coalition to Stop Bucket Deaths | Shall Not Be Questioned
It's stuff like the above that really bugs me when I hear the pediatrician ask me (again) about firearms in the house. Firearms are self-evidently dangerous when made ready, and can be stored quite safely by making them unready. Buckets,  knives, household cleaners, all of these are common in the home, and kill far more children than firearms; yet my pediatrician hasn't said a word about any of them. Not yet a mention of pools, even.

  1. I'd tell that pediatrician to mind his own fucking business.

  2. Enh, at this point it's a little late. Tempted to tell him we just bought some pistols, though :)
