Would-be appointees quizzed on guns

Do you or any members of your immediate family own a gun?

If so, provide complete ownership and registration information.
Has the registration ever lapsed?"

Please also describe how and by whom it is used and whether it
has been the cause of any personal injuries or property damage.

@H2O MAN,
Quote:
Paul Light, professor of public service at New York University, said there was no such question for potential appointees when President George W. Bush took office in 2000.

“It kind of sticks out there like a sore thumb,” Light said.

He expressed uncertainty over why it was included but surmised it was out of an abundance of caution, a desire to avoid the spectacle of a Cabinet-level or other high-ranking appointee who is discovered to have an unregistered handgun at home.
“It’s the kind of thing that, if dug out, could be an embarrassment to the president-elect,” Light said.


I think that Obama is covering his ass, and that Mr. Light is right on target. What I would like to know is if anyone was discriminated against because they had a (legally registered) gun. I would find that extremely unsettling.

BTW, I am pro-gun, and am thinking of getting a little six shooter myself!

A real pro gun nut would get a 25 shot semiautomatic 44.

Good for you!

Shop around and try to avoid the panic buying at any price.

I guess that means Cheney won't be working for this administration.

Neither will any other qualified people.

@H2O MAN,
I didn't realize the only people qualified to work in government were those that had shot other people.

Does that make you unqualified?
