Not content with playing nanny to those who want it...

... the government is now requiring firearms dealers to include a child safety device ("trigger lock") with all handgun purchases.  This will have little practical effect as many manufacturers and dealers were doing so voluntarily, but it was passed into law as part of the compromise required to get the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act through the Senate.  My feelings are mixed.  On the one hand, it is a compromise; on the other, it was a worthwhile one, with small cost to our side and badly needed protection to manufacturers.
We must be vigilant, however, and ensure that we do not lose the benefits of the compromise later on.
