23. I almost iagree with you.

 

It would be nice if every gun owner in Florida wanted the book thrown at him, but the reality is that there are a number (hopefully a small percentage) of gun owners who are NOT responsible, and who might do the same thing in the same circumstances, and who think what he did was O.K.

That's what I mean when I say that it's not O.K. to let just anyone carry a gun. There must be standards. Right now there are no standards. We need it to be the case that every gun owner is the type of person who would want the book thrown at him. In other words, a person shouldn't be a gun owner unless he is a responsible person. And there's the rub. There's really no way to know before it's too late.

I only know three people who own guns. Two are really great people who I trust to carry a gun and the third really creeps me out with his reckless attitude. Somehow, and I don't know how, that third guy shouldn't be allowed to carry a gun.
