...and then you'd roll them on their backs on the living room carpet as a babysitter.

Just keep them away from Airedales and other wiry-coated pets.

I remember a TV news program that hid a pistol in a house and the kids found it in no time. It's funny that a lot of the children I know of parents who own guns tell me that they don't touch guns because it makes their butt hurt.

A better plan is to take kids to a shooting range as soon as they're able to hold a .22. Teach them respect for the weapon and how to use it properly. Repeat often and they won't find a gun so "interesting", should they happen across one.

All children should be taught about firearms anyway. It would prevent a great number of tragedies. They should know to not ever play with a real firearm and to call an adult if they find a gun. It's interesting that the government schools are pounding all sorts of safety information into the little heads of school children but they won't teach basic gun safety.

If enough kids get killed, eventually society will call for the ban of all guns. And then we can be like England. Sadly, so. My condolences to the English. Fine, gentle people with a goverment gone socialist.

Minimally, a license, and a waiting period. National registration.

I watched a show tonight hosted by John Schlossel (sp). He was saying that no other country has a "first amendment". Canada's is so loosely interpreted that people are getting arrested for nothing. In France the same thing. Other western countries as well. People from all around the world want to come here to live. A place where they can have opportunity to live their life how they want.(well, except for being a mental,etc.).

Swat on the butt sure is less damage than an accidental gunshot.

You're worried about drilling holes on the INSIDE of the drawers & cabinets? Why? Do you have snotty guests who'll see the holes and gossip about your lack of taste?

While spank the arse is my desired solution, I will say that if the cabinets have knob style pulls on them that a large rubber band works about as well and no fears of weenies saying child abuse. Those pony tail do-dads are somewhat easier for older folks to place and remove than rubber bands.

The UTMOST concern is the toddler. NOT your aesthetic desires.
Put up child gates to keep him/her out of the kitchen. Move anything hazardous to higher shelves.

== We put up a child gate for the youngest girl and she figured out how to open it in no time. She would also stick her foot through the bars of her crib and propel herself around to where the drawers were and investigate the contents. Smart little fart. ==

Gates don't work. Even for the short time they do, assume they don't. It is imperative that anything hazardous goes as high as possible. When the brat was a toddler we put all the cleaning supplies in the cabinet above the sink and the cereal below.

Wouldn't work in my house...my (now grown) children used the drawers in the lower cabinets as a ladder.
