Child Protection and Home Safety Act of 2005

I just read an August 2, 2005, PRNewswire article that tells about legislation (the Child Protection and Home Safety Act of 2005) that would give gun owners a 25% tax credit toward the purchase of a qualified gun safe. If passed this legislation could prevent an accidental shooting by a child that found their parents weapon. It could also help keep firearms out of the hands of criminals that break into the homes of gun owners while they are away. The price of gun safes (there are lots of sites, I picked this one at random) is one of the things that stops some gun owners from having one. We purchased a home that had one built into it. If you have ever moved one it is not something you want to do again. I hope you will contact your elected officials and urge them to support this legislation.

God Bless America, God Save The Republic.

Sounds like a winner to me. I think citizens should have the right to own a weapon but it should be kept somewhere safe. That's the way to go and this is a step in that direction.
