"Jonathan Mossberg is among a small number of pioneers looking to build a safer gun. But unlike many others, he was in the gun business when he started down that path.

His family is renowned for its premier line of shotguns treasured by law enforcement, hunters and the military. Mossberg already has spent more than a decade working to develop and someday bring to the market a firearm that the wrong person cannot fire. It is intended to work without fail in the hands of its owner in a life-or-death situation.

"We're gun people, so we know when you pick up a gun you want to shoot it," Mossberg said. "You don't want to swipe your finger. You don't want to talk to it. In an emergency situation, you want to pick it up and use it."…"

I see increased gov't involvement in the issue as a blessing. Since firearm ownership is a right under US law, this can only lead to mandated universal ownership with financial assistance to those needing it.

Actually, that will be one of the planks of my political platform when I run for World Dicta…ummm…I mean National President.

"the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed."

If you're going to quote the 2nd Amendment, you might want to get it right:

"A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed."

As a point of record, the "well regulated Militia" part was superseded by the establishment of the National Guard…

You might want to know what "well regulated" meant in the 1700s:


The Militia Act of May 8, 1792 defined the militia as every white male between the ages of 18 and 45 (effectively, everyone who could vote), and specified that they would drill for two weeks TWICE a year, in addition to one weekend a month.

That act was amended in 1795 to apply until repealed. It was further amended in about 1865 to say all men regardless of color.

But on a more pedantic point, the phrase "A well regulated Militia being necessary to the security of a free State," is called an explanatory clause.

The reason that the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed is that The People need to be able to defend their country.
