Common Sense Gun Control

More than two months after the tragic events in Tucson, the President is calling for "common sense gun control." To him this means more laws on the books to render the Second Amendment pretty meaningless.

But there's a better way that really IS grounded in common sense, and it's the one I learned as a Boy Scout. Always be certain of your target, and never point a weapon at anything you don't intend to blow the living daylights out of. Having established this intention, assume that the weapon is fully loaded, and capable of deadly force, even if you know for a fact that it is completely empty.

Now, for the bullet points on effective gun control.

   Thumb and three fingers
   Hold lightly
   Breathe in
   Breathe out halfway
   Squeeze slowly
   Follow through
   Aim small miss small

In summation, the most common sense form of gun control ... is a steady hand.
