    How about having them ask if there's a swimming pool since it's almost 100 times more likely to kill a child than a gun is?

    So on the surface this group is kinda a good thing.
    Parents are often too lackadaisical about who and where their children play. If a child of mine was going to someone's house I'd be interested to know whether they kept their firearms in a safe or otherwise. I'd be very, very concerned about a pool as well. Children need care and guidance, and placing them in the hands of a stranger is always a risk. So getting to know the families your kids are hanging around is definitely important.

    All of that said, this group is probably looking to cause hysteria and anti-gun sentiment. That would certainly be a negative. From this article it seems unclear. If their goal is to promote safety, communication, and education about firearms storage and use that I could be OK with.

    That is a mighty big If coming from this group. You'll pardon me if I don't hold my breath.

    If I were the tin foil hat type, I would wonder if this big push to "ask" is to begin to gather info for a future of paid citizen informants. But im not.

    My take is "IF" they want to ask, I don't have to give them a reply!!! Straight up!!! They are NOT promoting safety in any way, it's just another way for government to keep track of gun owners!!! Don't be fooled!!!
    I trained my kids at 4 & 5 years old what a grapefruit (their friends or brother or sister head) would look like when a gun is involved. They were taught the same gun handling proficiency as in hunter ed. and told that I would be the one they would have to answer to if they did anything stupid with guns. And to this day, they respect their Father for taking the time and considerable effort to train them and guns. Brings a tear to my eyes when they tell me that.... sniff sniff

    I would think it would be a courtesy to those who ask about guns that we ask about drugs, alcohol and swimming pools in theirs!!!
