She would not be allowed into my home unless she removed all medications from her person. Further, were my child to visit her home, I would demand all medications be locked up.
"The Safe Kids report suggests that 95% of unintentional medication overdose visits to emergency rooms are caused by a young child who got into a medicine while a parent or caregiver wasn't looking. "
While CDC found that between 2007-2010 an average of 62 children under 14 died from gunshots, 60,000 children under 5 were hospitalized for drug poisoning. Of these, 864 died of poisoning.
Clearly, she has be distracted by the gun grabber retoric. When one of her children dies from poisoning (864,) or drowns (983,) or suffocates to death (1,163,) or dies from falls (161,) or dies from burns (391) she may change her mind.

In this regard NYS is much like the rest of the country. If you are on private property and are asked to leave you must comply. If you don't it's tresspassing.

I have a rule that you can't come in my house if you plan to spout liberal bullshit. My 21 year old daughter was told to tell her friends this up front so they didn't make a mistake and come in here spouting shit and force me to throw them out. The wife and I pay for it, we maintain it and the rules are not negotiable.

I wonder if she would feel the same way about someone not wanting their kids to be exposed to gay and transgender culture? Would she equally defend their rights to control what THEIR kids are exposed to? Would she support that person having a sign "No gay or trans allowed here", or asking everyone who comes through the door?
Just food for thought.
Great post. Thanks for the numbers.

It's her right but she won't know if she doesn't wand/frisk everybody, they open carry or tell them.
This is nothing more than a soft anti-gun hit piece.
|Rule #1: Use enough gun|
Well Kitten, since there are many guns in my home, I guess that means I don't have to worry about a visit from you.

In Texas, if you take a gun onto private property, and receive effective notice that the owner forbids possession of guns on the property, you must leave or face a trespass misdemeanor charge.
This applies expressly to licensed gun carriers. If you have no LTC, you cannot carry either concealed or openly.
She also is nervous about being in an "altercation" with someone who is armed and refuses to leave. All she has to do is call the cops, gun or no gun.
This being in New York, how prevalent is it to have a carry permit? My impression is not many at all.
Luckily, I have enough willpower to control the driving ambition that rages within me.
When you had the votes, we did things your way. Now, we have the votes and you will be doing things our way. This lesson in political reality from Lyndon B. Johnson
"Some things are apparent. Where government moves in, community retreats, civil society disintegrates and our ability to control our own destiny atrophies. The result is: families under siege; war in the streets; unapologetic expropriation of property; the precipitous decline of the rule of law; the rapid rise of corruption; the loss of civility and the triumph of deceit. The result is a debased, debauched culture which finds moral depravity entertaining and virtue contemptible." - Justice Janice Rogers Brown

These targets make themselves so easy to find... They even publish their names and that they hate guns. Might as well take out an advertisement advising free shit, helpless victims, and the address.

In NYC the answer is practically zero as far as LTC is concerned. The rest of NY state is a far different story. Every pistol license is an LTC, although some are issued with restrictions and aren't full carry.
'I'm pretty fly for a white guy'.
As Icabod posted, 10x more kids drown in pools than die from gunshots. And I am wondering if the "under 14 children" statistic is only accidents or includes suicide and homicide. If it's only truly accidentally "found" guns then it's a small number.
I would be far more concerned about my child (when he was young) going to a friend's house that had a pool. And considering the number of kids killed in car accidents, you should make sure the friend's parent has a good driving record, a vehicle with a good safety rating, and the proper child seats. Considering how much cell phone use - talking AND texting - I see among parents driving their kids around, this should be the #1 concern of any parent when letting their kids' safety be entrusted to another parent.
I wondering if she's making inquiries about pools and driving records and phone/text usage? Somehow I think probably not.
And this is the thing that is strange about people like this. They are more worried about something extremely unlikely, than about things that are much more likely to occur.

I like the way it was in feudal Japan and the Samurai. The left their long sword (long arm) at the door, as did the host, and kept their short sword (sidearm) on them.! I think, despite her attempts to portray herself as "gun friendly", she is super pre-occupied with the thought that someone may be armed around her children. Obviously they weren't raised like I was in that we were taught to not touch them and believed wholeheartedly that if we touched my father's pistols or rifles (which rested in his top shelf of his dresser and in his closet) that our heads would be separated from our necks without delay and mysteriously.
In my home, I teach our daughter properly and always have the ne at arms reach and within my control but not visible. The rest are secured in a safe. I don't allow people in my home that I don't trust so I really don't have to worry about frisking or using some crazy assed metal detector. Most of the folks I associate with carry legally and are fairly like minded. I think little miss who wrote the article needs to do some long, hard thinking or just turn her home into a super max prison. At least she's not against others choosing for their lives and I'll give her that much. It's her home, her choice. I can respect that but like it was said earlier, I don't think they are someone I'm likely to be around.

The impression you get from an idiot spouting shit like that is that they actually want to be a victim. They're practically asking for a home invasion.
And if it happened with intruders armed with guns, I bet they'd wish they had guns of their own.
Guess what? If I visited your home, its none of your business what I have in my pocket! And I wouldn't tell you what I have or don't have!
I wonder if she has told her children that if someone bad breaks in to their home and threatens violence against them, mom and dad have no plan to defend the children. We will have to allow the bad people to do whatever they want to you. Saying in fact we do not care enough about you to have a plan to immediately defend you.
I wonder if the spineless husband has told his wife, if someone breaks in to our home and is raping you, I have no plan to defend you. I will only be able to watch them do unspeakable acts to you - but I am not man enough to defend you.
Pretty irresponsible to not have a plan to be able to immediately defend the lives of your children, spouse, family and friends in your home.
All my guns have killed less people than Ted Kennedy's car.
