12. yeah, well, try arguing that with a pro-gun person here at DU.

It's a shame that they get to come here on DU and post stuff that justifies conceal carry. I know it is a Supreme Court decision. I just don't think it is a progressive Dems position, even tho the Dem Party has given up on it.

I had a family member murdered with a "legal" gun bought for "home protection." Her killer was her step-grandfather who had a drinking problem and was afraid he was going to be written out of his dying wife's will. Anger, alcohol and the readily accessible loaded handgun in the nightstand was just too easy. She was killed instantly with a shot to her left forehead. Her mother and grandmother were wounded but survived the gunshot wounds. The grandmother died two weeks later. The mother is still alive.

These are terrible scenes that I revisit in my mind. It is an awful thing for a family to deal with...my brother was never the same after his daughter was killed...
