79. People who want guns for protection

are fearful or have a narcissistic bent or both. Any way you take it, if it is known they have a gun then they loose the most important aspect of owning a weapon for self preservation... the preemptive strike. That is where mental health issues become less important than simple human nature. It's human nature that makes guns an ultimately uncontrollable and a menace to all of us.

THAT is what is wrong with having guns that are not known to the public at large. In secret they allow fear and human fallibility to run amok. In the open, the owner is forced to a certain degree of limit and respect.
