How many shootings are required before we can consider it a problem?
I'm not against gun ownership. As ex military and someone who grew up around guns, I know what guns can do.
But get real. Guns don't protect anyone. It's an offensive weapon. Not defensive. Guns are only effective when fired. In a home environment, it's far more likely to be fired at a family member than a criminal.
I've heard all the arguments and they don't hold water. Correct storage of a weapn makes it difficult, if not impossible, to reach in an emergency. It has to be easily accesible to be effective. Incorrect, but easy to access, storage means that it's now a threat to your family, you, and the community on whole.
Where do criminals get there guns? They steal them from legitamate gun owners.
So have your guns. I don't care. But cut the B.S. about family protection. Your part of the problem. Not the solution.
