trigger locks

Requiring trigger locks on guns is a really doofus idea. It had to be thought up by gun-fearing wussies, because anybody can make a pistol or a rifle safe to handle WITHOUT a got-dam trigger lock. Put a trigger lock on it, and you've lost the ability to use the firearm quickly if you ever need to.

The last three firearms I bought almost bought, came with trigger locks in the box. All three locks are in my hardware drawer now. I didn't throw them away, because I may find a use for them someday.

But it damn sure won't be to lock the trigger on any of the guns I don't own.

(And if you're just fooling around tonight, go to ravenwood's place and just keep scrolling. He's got a lot of good posts up.)


Here in the liberal cesspool of Massachusetts, you go to jail if you don't have a trigger lock or a hard sided locked container.

The trigger lock law was thought up by the same people that tell everyone an SKS-47 or my Remington 7400's are machine guns. Duh. Damn yankee's or Calif. dreamers without a brain, or they have smoked too much weed in their life.

Trigger locks? I don't think so.. I'll be damned if I'm going to do a mad tango with a crack crazed "nut" while I'm trying to fish the key outta my pocket... The pistols I don't have are loaded. I still want a Sw50..
But me being a so called felon, I have no rights, I just pretend to own pistols ...Murry

Two .22' rifles, two 12 ga shotguns, one 30-06 bolt action, zero trigger locks.

The problem with government is they always try to reduce things down to the absolute lowest common denominator.

Stupid people can fall on scissors, get run over, and bleed to death while running down the road in heavy traffic, but they don't ban cars and scissors, do they?

Couldn't those trigger locks make handy key fobs?

According to the anti gun nuts one is not supposed to load a weapon until ready to use it. One should keep the ammo in one part of the house and the weapons in another part of the house. Both should be under lock and key. Now the gun nuts want us to use a trigger lock. So, when the asshole starts through the window, knock him out with a baseball bat, then go unlock your gun and ammo, load up, go back and wait for the asshole to wake up, then blow the mutha away. Charmin' people , the anti-gun nuts,

A good friend of mine out in East Texas made what I thought was excellent use of the trigger locks he had from the firearms he bought. He ran a piece of monofilament through a couple of them and used that for a door knocker. Anyone coming to his door with any "ideas" should know what awaits them.
