I found this just now, it's a bill that some jackass wrote that would, if I follow the summary right, would require handguns to have safety locks integrated, and force the recall of handguns that don't have said feature. Anyway, here's what they say about kids killed by guns: "In the 10 years from 1987 through 1996, nearly 2,200 children in the United States who were 14 years of age or younger died from unintentional shootings, and in 1996 alone, 138 children were shot and killed unintentionally, which is an average of 11 children every month, or 1 child every third day, according to the National Center for Health Statistics." Much less than 12 kids a day, huh? the peice of crap bill is at [url]http://thomas.loc.gov/cgi-bin/query/z?c107:H.R.1014:[/url]
