How did we go from a mother who drives with a breastfeeding baby on her lap to an accidental discharge from a firearm? Matthias, I think you're really reaching for a fight here. If you wanted to discuss gun rights why didn't you open your own thread on the topic instead of basically hijacking this one?
Because I didn't want to discuss gun rights and it's not what the discussion is about. The discussion was about behavior that was reckless and endangering the lives of children. You're the only one who even tried to make it a rights issue; I was always talking about behavior and being responsible.
No, you said guns or kids, you shouldn't have both.
Yah; that's not a rights issue; that's a parental suggestion issue. I would also say smoke cigarettes in the house or have kids, you shouldn't do both. Or you can go out drinking until 3am or have kids, you shouldn't do both.
The right to purchase alcohol is guaranteed in the 21st Amendment but the above has nothing to do with that.
