    Beer fridge lock?

    Does any one have pictures or ideas for a lock on a beer fridge? I want to make sure my teen has no temptation while Iím away from the house. I'm thinking of putting a bracket on the top and bottom of the fridge. Kind of like what you would see on a tool box where there is a long strap/pipe that goes from the top to the bottom. This in turn would latch on the bottom bracket and pad lock against the top bracket.

    Donít get me wrong we donít have any issues as of yet but if they have friends over I donít want them to have any peer pressure because things are all locked up.

    With teens you have to stay one step ahead.

Teach the kids about things like guns, beer, boot in the butt etc. They are not stupid. If we as parents dont teach em someone else will. Most of all you cant spend enough time with them. And I dont mean just playing. Make em work too. I was always with my dad, and my boys were always with me, funny at 17 and 22 they still are, We work and play together still.

    Phew, that feels better

    Its an important topic and thanks for everybodys views, even if I don't agree...Your entitled!


    you said it.... even though i am too young/impatient to have kids (maybe in ten years) i agree that kids (even though some of you may think i are one) are being raised like girly men. you can see it on tv, in your neighborhoods, we have a "thug" problem from the ones around here.

    i was raised around guns i was shooting when i was 5 years old. it takes away form the curiosity and helps prevent accidents ,and acts of stupidity.

    And as for you being a Marine i say thank you, i didnt even go to my high school graduation,because i was in Marine Corps bootcamp . my dad was in the Navy,my mother was in the Air Force,my brother was Navy,and my granddad was in the Army.i never finished bootcamp i blew out my knee with two weeks remaining,and was given a medical discharge

    as for having a CHL, i dont have one i got a BAD temper. but i do like the new castle doctrine they just passed

    Many are injured or killed because they DO have quick access to a firearm in a moment of anger or fear...road rage etc. although there may have been an alternative action. But shooting them is so much easier.

    I'm sure that some of the ones that have done the school shootings have given indications of being troubled but with parents that are "TOO BUSY" it is not always recognized untill it's too late

    If one has a permit to carry, there is no reason to HIDE a gun.

    Maybe the reason we didn't have mass murder when most carried a firearm, in the Wild West Days, and I'm not sure we didn't, is that we shot others for stealing our horse, cattle, not accepting whiskey, or just looking at us wierd. We just killed a little every day not leaving enough left to be a mass. Look at the life span of
    Jessie James and the like. So much for the Golden Years.

    Many parents may never find out what their Angelic children did while they
    were bringing home the Bacon. I'm sure many have been shocked.

    If a young child get a set of cowboy guns, a toy assualt rifle etc. as a gift for Christmas or a birthday, they run around and play shooting at one another. I've never seen children simulate a wild safari hunt. Thanks to the violent movies and video games we have offered them to learn from. They have been taught a gun is the ultimate answer. Sad, don't you think?

    Engloid.....if children make it through the adolescent stage of life and
    survive, I congratulate the parents.
    Thanks for sharing your views and being a part of the forum.
    We'll talk again. Have a good day.

    I think we know that we're helpless against the govt already, aren't we?

    If we weren't, we'd not be paying so much for gas, have so many taxes, etc. We have so little control over our government (which is so huge and powerful) that it's a huge problem.

    As I said before...if they get the guns from the criminals, I'll give up mine also. The risk is greater that I'll need a firearm to defend myself against a criminal than I will against my government.

    out of sight, easy to get to but not loaded.
    People are killed because they can't get to their gun or load it fast enough also.

    I don't think I'd need ALL of them loaded.

    Odds are that if somebody broke in, I would be in the bed. If not, I'm sure I could run and have my gun in my hand and have a couuple rounds into the person before you could get your trigger lock off and load it.

    There are places in the house that my kids are not allowed to go. For example, what business would they have in my bedroom? If I have a kid that's cutting him/herself, doing that stupid goth stuff, or other indicators are there, I will act accordingly. I don't think every kid needs to be given a gun for their birthday, or taught to shoot. If my kid's always in trouble, fighting, acting up, I would likely feel the danger of them getting my guns was greater than the need to protect the family from an external threat.

    The school and campus shootings are a prime example of what can happen when kids get depressed, snap, and have easy access to firearms. Remember the shooters here never did this before, just this first time and the last especially when they turn the weapon on themself.
    How many had indicators of problems, such as poor grades, violent history at home, self-mutilation, or other things? ALL of them.

    Cause it's more work. You can buy ammo and black powder more easily than you can buy a gun. Some of these school shooters were found to have plans for bomb making.

    vehicle as some have stated here which is against the law.
    I dont know where you are, but it's not illegal here, if you have a permit to carry one.

    When the majority of people carried guns, we didn't have mass murders, did we?

    Personally, I'm 100% legal. I have no illegal guns, no stolen guns, and have the permit to carry legally. There's no need for me to break laws to protect myself and my family.

    One last thing........going by your chart, are you not letting your children drive? It is the most dangerous you know.
    They're not old enough to drive, but they do swim...and drowning kills many more than firearms do. The point is that firearms aren't as common of a cause of death as many people make them out to be. They don't think twice about electrical outlets that are unprotected, or drowning, but worry about guns.

    But, some people just like to think we're heading for a utopia where nobody will have guns. Myself, I'll gladly give up ALL my guns...just as soon as they can get all the guns from the criminals.
